UX Developer

Irvine, CA

As a UX Developer at Kajabi, you'll join a cross-functional product team of frontend and backend devs, qa and product specialsts and take ownership over the feature development, maintenance, and delivery of a slice of our core application.

Achieving a good user experience is the result of thoughtful execution of both visual design and code. The responsibility for delivering on this goal does not lie within one discipline or the other, but somewhere in between. Therefore, the people writing the HTML and CSS need to care about the quality of the final design as much as the designers do. It is for this reason that we have the position at Kajabi of the UX Developer.

About the job

UX Developers own the frontend code at Kajabi. They’re a bridge between designers and engineers, translating design requirements into functional user interfaces.

The UX Developer turns designs into functional HTML, CSS (and some presentational JavaScript) that makes up a user interface. They do this while ensuring that the design holds up under the various design constraints: different browsers, different dimensions, different resolutions, and different interaction methods (mouse, keyboard, gestures, screen readers)

They inform design of possibilities and constraints and help ensure that designers build a consistent and usable interface for as many users as possible.

They have a developer mindset with concerns about render performance and load times and can work with engineering to build out a performant front-end.

The UX Developer must also have the ability to architect and organize a large CSS framework used to power our Design System at Kajabi. (Think Bootstrap, but customized for our products). Our Design System provides the core components that make up the UI of our product. This tool keeps our products consistent for users, and makes it easy for designers, PMs and engineers to build interfaces without writing CSS or JS. This also makes it possible for our UX Developers to quickly create usable, product ready, interfaces without needing pixel perfect design comps from our Design Team.

About you

  • You understand UX principles and best practices, but at your core you are an implementor therefore you do not spend your time conducting research, creating flows, and planning scenarios.
  • You have a keen eye for aesthetics, but understand that when it comes to creating the best possible design you defer to the designer.
