Job Description:

About UsInterested in working for a human-centered technology company who prides itself on using modern tools and technologies? Want to be surrounded by intensely curious and innovative thinkers? Seeking to solve complex technical challenges by building products that work for people, meet and exceed the needs of businesses, and work elegantly and efficiently?

Modeling ourselves after the 1904 World's Fair, which brought innovation to the region, 1904labs is seeking top technical talent in St. Louis to bring innovation and creativity to our clients.

Our clients consist of Fortune 500 and Global 2000 companies headquartered here in St. Louis. We partner with them on complex projects that range from reimagining and refactoring their existing applications, to helping to envision and build new applications or data streams to operationalize their existing data. Working in a team based labs model, using our own flavor of #HCDAgile, we strive to work at the cutting edge of technology's capabilities while solving problems for our clients and their users.The RoleAs a Human-Centered Visual Designer you will work on an Agile development team to create user interfaces and other aspects of the user experience for a variety of software products. We build cloud-based, data engineering, and decision science software and solutions for our clients in a variety of domains, including geospatial/mapping tools, financial tools, healthcare solutions, business software, big data analytics, and others.

Human-Centered Visual Designers create beautiful, elegant, innovative, accessible, usable user interfaces and other aspects of the visual experience using iconography, typography, color, texture, space, and imagery to help users understand and enjoy using what we build. We believe that everything we produce needs to be visually pleasing, should communicate through the use of visuals, and be accessible to all users.

You'll rely on human-centered design principles and research to produce high-quality visualsfrom concept to executionacross many platforms. You will prototype designs and interactions. You will collaborate with developers, human-centered designers and researchers, client stakeholders, and users to ensure your designs help to balance user, business, and technical wants and needs.

Although you specialize in visual/graphic/creative design, you are able to leverage all of your own and your teammates' skills and abilities to help drive research-informed design into products. You'll work in an Agile environment, and will be embedded with developers to define and deliver new solutions for our clients. You'll work closely with members of the delivery team to help translate concepts into living, breathing code. You will iterate on interactions, informed by data, to deliver a superior user experience.

While currently not necessary - there is a potential for upwards of 25% travel for this role. We want to make sure to be as open and honest as possible so let us know if you are open to this!Responsibilities

    • Proficiency with industry-standard design tools (e.g., Photoshop, Illustrator, Sketch, Axure).
    • Accessibility knowledge and experience
    • Qualitative research skills and experience, including the ability to conduct requirements gathering, prototype evaluations, and other user research methods
    • Portfolio of design and/or research artifacts or other work samples
    • Excellent team/professional skills (communication, collaboration, empathy, desire to learn)
    • Consulting experience preferred


      • Standard Benefits Program (medical, dental, life insurance, 401(k), professional and personal development, PTO)
      • Innovation Time - we allow 10% of your time to be devoted to innovation hours. This time can be used to foster individual ideas, personal projects, start up ideas, improve an open source tool or for career advancement and self-education, all during traditional working hours
      • Dress Code - we don't have one

        This role is located in St. Louis, MO. While we would prefer local candidates your current location is not the most important factor; please help us understand why you would like to call St. Louis home if you would be relocating.
