UI/UX Designer

What We Do

At Jibestream we develop solutions that improve people’s ‘experience of place’. We do this by giving them the most up to date and relevant information based on where they are and where they want to go. Today, navigating a complex space is about the mobile experience, using great location-awareness tech, and building killer business rules, which help people get more done.

Jibestream has graduated from a fast growing start up to a global enterprise software company. Our customers have deployed our platform across hundreds of shopping malls, corporate campuses and hospitals around the world.

With a best in class product and a dramatically growing sales pipeline, we need to continue to add great people to our team. Finding amazing people that fit with our culture is extremely important to us.

What We’re Looking For

It says it in our slogan, it’s all about experience at Jibestream. You would be responsible for designing interactive web applications. As a UI/UX Designer, you will get the chance to shape Jibestream’s platform. In turn, you need to be extremely good at working collaboratively with our internal product and development teams. To be successful, you’ll need to be well rounded, comfortable in a dynamic work environment, and not be afraid of a challenge.

Here are the top 3 skills that we believe will enable you to succeed:

Design skills: you should be someone stay current with the latest design trends. Part of being a designer is recognizing that everyone is a “designer” and that you have to be able to effectively justify your designs to others with user testing, or by leveraging common design patterns. We want someone who has proven in the industry that they can produce effective wireframes, storyboards and designs. We work on screens both small and large, so like your designs you should be responsive to changes (bad pun…I know).

Communication: we need someone who enjoys working as a part of a team. If you like whiteboard sessions, we have them up all throughout the office, so we can all build something together. Our office concept is open and so are our minds (See what we did there?). We all like to build cool stuff, and want to make sure the environment is filled with people who want to do the same.

Passion: we work hard. We hope that you work hard too. We are pushing the boundaries of technology every day, and that’s what keeps us motivated...that and the coffee. We literally have an ever-evolving platform that is unlike anything else in the world. We hold our work up to a really high standard, and always try to deliver the best possible product.

Why should you join Jibestream?

We are a winning team: Why join anything but a winning team? World-class clients such as Mall of the Emirates, the Pentagon, and various US Army Hospitals have selected us, and a bunch of other’s that we can’t tell you the name of until you sign an NDA! Last year we grew by 300% and it’s looking even bigger this year.

Culture & Team: We recruit the best people because it’s our people that make us successful. You’ll find that the people at Jibestream are cool, smart and know how to get things done like nobody else.

Learn & Grow: There are few life-long careers at a single company in the tech world these days, and great people are always striving for more. Our goal is to keep you as long as we can by creating an environment where you will grow both personally and professionally. It’s a very challenging environment but you will definitely leave Jibestream with some new skills and great experiences.

Influence: As a company in the stage that we are in, you will definitely not be a number. In fact, every member of our development team has a huge influence on our product, and its future. It’s the reason why we are so invested in every hire. You’ll see that we are definitely interested in your ideas, and the ways that we can help each other grow!

What’s the downside?

We are pretty self-aware as a company, and we know there are a few areas where we can do better…here they are:

Office Space: We are not your post and beam style office…we don’t even have a Ping-Pong table! The space is a bit dated and could use some improvements. We have a committee working on it, and although it may not ever look like Google’s office, we think it will still be pretty cool. We do take our coffee and team parties pretty seriously though, so at least we have those parts right.

Location: We’re not downtown. We are located at Downsview Subway station near Allen Road and Sheppard, making us equally inconvenient for everyone! Good news is that we are on the subway line, close to the 407 and 401. Even better news is that the rent is reasonable and this allows us to spend more on our team.

Process: Jibestream is growing really fast in all aspects, which is great. The hard part is that we don’t have all the processes (some call it bureaucracy!) that you’d find at a big company. We are counting on our people to help create processes that are necessary and that we can adjust quickly as we grow.

If you are awesome and want to join a larger group of awesome people, please click on the link and apply. We can’t promise it will be a fit but we do promise to consider your creds. We're growing quickly and you never know when the next opportunity will come up so follow us on Twitter @Jibestream or check out our careers page.
