What We Are Looking For:
We need a User Experience Designer to level-up a team of seasoned and passionate UX professionals and collaborate with product owners to create world-class experiences for users of Bandwidth’s web applications. In this role, you’ll design new and enhanced software functions and task flows in low- and high-fidelity mockups. Access to our customers is readily available, and you’ll have opportunities to engage with them regularly, so you should be excited that your designs will be informed by actual product users. You’ll also contribute to our design system, interaction patterns, and UI component library, with a constant eye for expansion and enhancement.
Are you excited about the position and its responsibilities, but not sure if you’re 100% qualified? Do you feel you can work to help us crush the mission? If you answered ‘yes’ to both of these questions, we encourage you to apply! You won’t want to miss the opportunity to be a part of the BAND.

- Work closely with product owners/managers and developers in the product implementation phase.
- Present concepts and design decisions to the product leadership team, product owners/managers, UX team colleagues, developers, and other stakeholders.
- Ensure consistency of product UIs and other web properties through design specifications that leverage consistent interaction patterns and a standard component library.
- Collaborate with, provide feedback to, and receive feedback from, your UX colleagues regarding project work.
- Advance our strategic UX vision and roadmap and understand how your work contributes to it.
- Identify insights and trends in UX/UI design and the telecommunications industry.
What You Need:
- Bachelor’s degree in Design, Human-Computer Interaction, Human Factors, Computer Science, or a related field.
