Web/User Interface Designer

We are looking for a creative and passionate designer to join our growing design team. Someone who can be a key contributor in brainstorming ideas and taking concepts to final design. If you have designed digital experiences such as web sites and native applications (Mac OS/Windows, iOS/Android etc.), and your greatest strength is in visual design, but you have exposure to wireframing, user experience design, and development then Wolfram is looking for you!

Wolfram has established itself as a powerhouse of technical innovation and a unique organization respected and admired for its products, people, and long-term strategic vision. At Wolfram, we invent every day. We’re committed to being ahead and to defining new directions that others will follow. We’re always working with the latest technologies—as well as creating new ones of our own.

  • Produce iterative designs for web, mobile and client applications
