Senior UI/UX Designer

| Greater Boston Area

Are you a UI/UX designer who loves building elegant user experiences? Do you want to measure the effectiveness of your designs through data and testing? Are you looking to grow your skills and work on all stages of design, and support front-end development? Then we want to talk to you! Cogo Labs is seeking a full-time Senior UI/UX Designer to help own the marketing and UI/UX for our public facing startups as well as our internal tools that help them excel. 

You are someone that has:

  • A solid design portfolio with an emphasis on UI and UX design. Maybe you have a BFA in Graphic Design or you’ve learned by doing the job. The important thing is that you have an extensive and varied portfolio.
  • Experience working with design and wireframing tools: our design team work with Illustrator, Sketch, Photoshop, and Balsamic most days, but we are always open to suggestions.
  • Experience with front-end code (HTML/CSS), and a willingness to learn more to support our engineers in their front-end endeavors.
  • Strong user experience fundamentals. You are someone that believes design decisions are as much about the user experience as they are about striking visuals.
  • Willingness to step outside of your comfort zone on a regular basis.
  • A few years of professional design experience and are a self-starter who can own a project and see it from start to finish.

In your first week expect to:

  • Familiarize yourself with Cogo Labs during our awesome Cogoversity on boarding program
  • Get situated on GitHub
  • Join your teammates to review some of the projects we own
  • Make your first design contribution

After that expect to:

  • Partner with our awesome engineers to identify and build new ways to empower the business
  • Design and improve existing UIs for our internal tools, and for companies at every stage of the incubator
  • Learn to design and develop email marketing templates to support Cogo’s incubating companies
  • Build strong relationships with our users, and be an ambassador on their behalf

Our team values:

  • Strong collaborative and mentorship skills
  • Kind, articulate, and professional communication
  • An eye for prioritization and project management
  • Having chill and/or good vibes

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.

An Insider's view of Cogo Labs

What are some social events your company does?

Every year we have a Cogo cruise where we take the day off from the office and take a cruise around the Boston harbor. In addition, we have monthly women's dinners, LGTBQ centered events and much more!

Braden

Brand Marketing Coordinator

What does your typical day look like?

My top priorities are hiring for Senior level talent, looking into the recruiting funnel data to identify roadblocks, managing my team to help execute on goals, and continuing to build an efficient recruiting function to support Cogo as we scale.

Emily

Talent Acquisition Lead

What are some things you learned at the company?

I’ve always felt that my input is valued here, but also that I’m encouraged to use my voice and to make a difference in the growth of the business – whether that’s developing new partnerships or improving and owning new processes. People here are supportive, intelligent and kind. And fun. I’ve also enjoyed grabbing a drink with a colleague!

Claire

Account Manager

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

One of the most exciting things about working at Cogo is the incredible variety I see in the career paths of my peers. As an employee becomes more experienced their responsibilities shift to follow their interests, whether in building cool stuff, analyzing crazy amounts of data, or managing a team.

Nate

Lead Analyst

How does the company support your career growth?

I have never worked in an environment where individual contributors have been appreciated and encouraged as much as they are here, and it shows people’s energy and optimism. This success is also fueled by Cogo’s commitment to transparency and easy access to our leaders who consistently make organizational goals clear."
