What Does 'UX Designer' Mean?
At Liferay, our User Experience team is responsible for serving the whole company in our shared mission of making technology useful for people. You might not consider yourself a UX Designer, and that's OK. Maybe you're an Interaction designer, Visual designer, Digital designer, Product designer ? we used to have a lot of different titles, but found the distinctions to be unnecessarily confusing for where our whole organization is in its design maturity, so we opted to unify the titles ? and instead improve our job listings by making them more specific.
Who Are We Looking For?
For this listing, we're currently looking for designers to work in the following areas:
Product / Business / Research
Contributing to improving user experience in an MVP.
Designing demos with our product marketing team that highlight our flexibility in adapting to industry-specific business needs.
Strong foundation in Design principles and experience working independently, guiding stakeholders along the entire design process from research to implementation, iterating along the way.
At least 2 years of relevant experience ? demonstrated in your application and portfolio.
Visual / Marketing / Brand
Designing all the flashy areas of Liferay.com ? home, product, solutions, and services pages.
Shipping the next phase of our living style guide ? taking our brand and digital marketing to the proverbial "next level".

How Do Liferay's Core Values Look in the Design Team?
Produce excellence ? we strive to become masters in our craft, doing the right thing even if no one notices.
Lead by serving ? we're all willing to do the unglamourous work and always looking for opportunities to help others.
Value people ? we listen first and believe that everyone can contribute because there is strength in diversity.
Grow and get better ? we're always learning, when we find ways to improve our designs we take them, when we make mistakes we admit, apologize, and move forward. We fail a lot, but we aren't failures because we learn and improve.
Stay nerdy ? we live and breath design, but we also have passions outside of work ? rock climbing, coffee, photography, writing ? and pursue them to the n-th degree.
What Can We Offer You?
A place to make a lasting impact ? we strongly believe in using business as a tool for restoration. Think Patagonia's commitment to the environment, just extended to the whole world. Some initiatives that we've recently worked in are fighting human trafficking, helping foster youth, and serving refugees.
Salary package commensurate with qualifications and experience.
40 hours per year to volunteer at a nonprofit of your choice.
