UX & Front End Designer

Reports to: VP of Design

Designers at Launch Scout are talented creatives and hands-on coders. Designers play a significant role in creating the look and feel of our clients’ web apps. They make things easy to use while keeping productivity in mind. Designers work closely with our clients and our developers, collaborating on code.

Designers are involved in the big picture planning of client projects. Launch Scout designers have the power to push for new ideas and help clients understand the value of the work we’re delivering. They’re given great autonomy. Our designers work on small teams, typically with two developers and the client.
