What we are looking for:

You’re innately curious; you’re driven to understand, learn, and solve problems every day. You may not have the answers right away, and that’s OK; what matters is getting in and figuring it out. We’re looking for a person who wants to make an impact; who will challenge the status quo; who is not afraid to fail; and who will continue to drive forward until the solution is in place.

  • Work with the product management team to understand the goals of both the business and our users to design innovative, user-friendly solutions for our existing software products;
  • Create wireframes based on product requirements, or with direction from the product team, that display well-reasoned system and process design rationale;
  • Iterate on concepts based on feedback from technology, internal stakeholders, and test participants to identify the best solution to take to market;
  • Build prototypes to help with design exploration;
  • Produce high-fidelity mockups that will help the business and the engineering team fully understand the design solution;
  • Write clear, concise, friendly UI copy that helps the user successfully navigate the workflow;
  • Collaborate with the engineering team to ensure your designs are properly understood and implemented (both from a visual and interaction perspective).
  • Organize and participate in design team UX practices including but not limited to working with personas, evaluating user behavior to inform your work, and conducting usability testing;
  • Work within and contribute to an existing component library of design elements and patterns.


  1. 3+ years of experience building web-based products;
  2. Demonstrable success working with cross-functional teams to deliver results on time with limited direction;
  3. Ability to thrive in a high paced, agile environment;
  4. Familiarity with the challenges faced by modern web applications, and the array of solutions to those problems;
  5. Enjoy working with people in engineering, product development, sales, marketing, and customer support;
  6. Strong creative problem solving and communication skills;
  7. Effective writing skills;
  8. Demonstrated experience participating in UX best practices such as user research and testing, and working with personas;
  9. Demonstrated ability to explain the design decisions you’ve made, and how best practices inform your solution;
  10. Proficiency with Adobe Illustrator;
  11. Experience with Figma and Invision, or comparable prototyping tools;

We provide:

  • A collaborative work environment where you will make decisions daily that positively impact the business.
  • A competitive salary and benefits that include pre-tax commuter benefit, 401K, discounted membership to Chicago office building’s gym, and competitive health, dental and vision coverage.
  • A work-life balance where family and health come first. Need to take a break? No problem. We have an open vacation policy, as we want everybody to feel well-rested, energetic, and ready to seize the day.
  • Company-wide celebrations; game night is a regular occurrence at UrbanBound as is wine night, book club, and sporting events. From trolley rides to boat tours to Whirlyball outings when we meet our quarterly goals, everyone celebrates!
