At Factual, we help people leverage our high quality location data through tools for anyone who wants to uncover new insights, enrich a product, engage an audience, or understand through analysis. Design plays a crucial role in creating these tools that help people understand and get work done at organizations ranging from smaller startups and agencies to larger companies such as Amazon, Snapchat, Facebook, Adobe, Google DoubleClick, and The Trade Desk.

We’re looking for a UI/UX designer who loves making complicated data and workflows simple. You’ll be taking our data and mobile personalization products to create intuitive and elegant experiences around them.

Responsibilities:

-Gather and synthesize feedback from multiple constituents (users, customers, product managers, sales, engineers) to design new features and interfaces for Factual’s products
-Iterate on designs and drive product features from concept through final implementation and polish, working with product managers to prioritize and develop time commitments
-Create user flows, wireframes, and pixel-level mockups to define simple and intuitive experiences for users
-Develop and implement product measurement and success processes
-Constantly re-evaluate and iterate on product interfaces based on feedback and measured performance bottlenecks.

Requirements:

-A portfolio or samples of your recent past projects and work.
-Experience designing and shipping web-based products and interfaces (bonus points for projects requiring complex data visualization).
-Ability to clearly articulate and justify your design decisions.
-Knowledge of best practices in interaction design.
-Strong sense of visual design, including typography, color theory, and illustration.
-Expertise with Sketch, Figma, or similar UI design tools
-Some experience with front-end programming (HTML, CSS, Javascript).
-Demonstrated technical ability or experience working as a designer in a highly technical environment.

Nice-to-haves:

-Experience with some common server-side frameworks and languages (Rails, Node, etc.).

Data is increasingly critical to driving innovation and no one should be at a data disadvantage. We at Factual believe that data should be accessible to every developer, entrepreneur, business, or organization – anyone who needs it to build a better app, provide a better search result, make smarter software – anyone who needs data to make a better decision or help others make better decisions. We view ourselves as stewards of the world’s data – we gather raw data from millions of different sources, clean and structure it, and then package and distribute it in multiple ways to make data easier for the world to use. Critical to that role is our neutrality. We focus on enabling our partners instead of competing with them – we don’t have our own consumer apps, we don’t sell ads, we don’t have our own payments products, and the list goes on – we only do data. Today, Factual focuses on location data – data about places across the globe, and data which reveals a deeper understanding of people based on their geographic behavior. about where places are and how to better understand people based on their geographic behavior. We have APIs, mobile drivers, and on-premise implementations to make the data easy to use and integrate. The largest companies across a number of categories, including local search, mapping/navigation, social/messaging, mobile advertising, and payments, use Factual data to improve their products - products that are used daily by billions of people.
