About the Job

With more user facing products and user adoption, DFINITY is looking for a creative, experienced, and collaborative UI/UX lead to join our team and accelerate the adoption of the Internet Computer blockchain.

About You:

  • You over analyze the usability every website you visit
  • You have built web applications - both for desktop and mobile (a link to a portfolio is appreciated). Our main focus is Web apps, but mobile experience is a plus
  • You live and breathe design, aesthetics, intuitive UX
  • You understand the purpose and the underlying technologies of the user facing apps and strive for making them appealing and simple to use
  • You optimize your workflow for iterations rather than “the one end-all design”. There is always room for improvement and a next step to take
  • You are fearless. You have jumped in and designed for different platforms or audiences. Crypto/Blockchain experience is a big plus. We are an ambitious startup and our UI/UX is one of the main drivers for the adoption
  • You hear and appreciate opinions and tastes of different parties. You can reconcile all inputs, synthesize a good solution, and can explain why this is the right approach.
  • You have knowledge and understanding of various design systems, frontend frameworks, and processes for implementing user-facing software
  • You know basic front-end: HTML, CSS, JS, but are looking for a place where you can flex your software muscle


As a UI/UX lead, you will work towards creating a world-class user experience. You will be shaping up the major user-facing components of the Internet Computer ecosystem in the areas of governance and identity user experience (wallets, authentication systems, DeFi). Your responsibilities include:

  • Improve UI/UX of the existing functionality and developing UI/UX for new features for system dapps like Internet Identity and NNS Frontend
  • Conduct usability testing and help identify priorities for usability improvements
  • Work with the leadership and product teams to shape the product and brand strategy of the system user-facing dapps
  • Create storyboards, wireframes and screen flows
  • Work very closely with frontend developers (we use Svelte framework) to ship UX features and improvements
  • Partner with the Design and Editorial teams to scope and execute an end-to-end digital content strategy and brand identity
