The user experience has been an after-thought in most academic journals. We
believe that every interaction and experience needs to be iterated upon,
studied, and made pixel perfect if we are going to accelerate scientific
communication. It could be as simple as submitting a form, browsing on a
mobile device, or as complex as designing an entire workflow, but it needs to
put the user at the center. We are looking for an experienced UI engineer who
is looking to apply their past experience to lead the development of PeerJ's
look and interactive workflows.
The ideal UI engineering lead has ample experience in user-driven and tested
design, user interaction design, demonstrable knowledge in the differences of
behavior on mobile vs. desktop, knowledge of python, ruby or PHP frameworks,
excels at Photoshop, CSS, Ajax, HTML and cross-browser support. You take pride
in not only knowing, but also in contributing to best-practices within your
trade and owning projects and milestones.
