UX Engineer

‌Are you driven by creating a fantastic user experience? By producing a product that people love to interact with? Do you care deeply about making the web a more accessible place? Does semantic HTML mean something to you? Are you enjoying the cascade, rather than being afraid of it? Then we should definitely talk!

We are currently looking for an experienced UX Engineer with a focus on semantic HTML and CSS rendering performance who will support us in ensuring our Hotel Search remains accessible to everybody who wants to use it. As a UX Engineer, you’ll work closely with our Designers and Product Managers to identify the right product to build and you will produce the ideal HTML and CSS for the feature. You can, but don’t have to, write any necessary JavaScript as well. We’ve build our own frontend framework (https://melody.js.org) to enable specialists to work together instead of forcing them to become an expert in all fields of web frontend engineering.
