Information Designer/Information Architect

Boost Labs is currently seeking an experienced Information Designer/Information Architect. Tired of being under appreciated for your cutting-edge interfaces and data visualization designs? We are looking for an energetic team member with a desire to innovate and improve user interactions with data.

You’ll spend the majority of your time turning data into visually stunning graphics. You’ll need to be comfortable in graphics programs like Illustrator, Photoshop, or similar tools. You’ll also need to be comfortable in tools such as Excel, Tableau, Domo, or similar tools to understand your data. You must be passionate about layout, typography, and color and have the expertise and awareness to defend your design choices.

The ideal candidate loves to show his/her work in context, so prototyping tools like Sketch, Balsamiq, Invision, XD, Axure, etc. are in your toolbox. Applying your designs toward a finished product will involve working with engineers and product owners and users. You must be capable of setting expectations while accepting critical feedback at every step of the process. You’ll be capable of jumping in with engineers to refine CSS, HTML, etc. and have a strong opinion of pacing, transitions, and overall user experience of the finished product.

As a company, Boost Labs is made up of a passionate group of devoted teammates who push for improving data-centric applications and marketing efforts. Our culture is devoted to helping one another bring out the best through camaraderie, mentorship, training/learning, and of course, challenging projects. We focus on a fine balance between beauty and function without letting one compromise the other.
