How We Work: 
 
Our mission is to help create, develop, and support an environment where great people come to do their best work. We believe there is a balance to strike between “work hard, play hard,” and we strive to improve in both areas every day. 
 
We put our customers, employees, and communities at the center of everything we do. It all comes back to our core values:    

  • Be Good - Nitronauts are good humans with big hearts that are respectful and supportive of each other. We celebrate individuality and diversity and strive to foster an environment where people can be themselves and do their best work.     
  • Performance First - We like to challenge ourselves. We’re passionate about exceeding expectations and stepping outside our comfort zones to get to the next level. It’s our ambition that pushes us to work hard and deliver strong results.   
  • No B.S. - This one is self-explanatory, but we’re all about transparency, honesty, and authenticity here. We don’t beat around the bush; we tell it like it is. 

The Role:

The Nitro Experience Design (XD) team cares deeply about building a best-in-class experience for our customers, and we’re looking for a UX Engineer to help deliver just that. As a critical part of this multi-disciplinary and cross-functional team, you will work on the front end of the website experience in a fast-paced, high-impact environment. If you’re insatiably curious and believe that solving problems for the user is the best way build business value, then we would love to hear from you.

What you'll be doing: 

  • Collaborate with design and PM to develop high-quality, high-impact experiences for our users through GoNitro.com and critical moments within Nitro’s products
  • Partner closely with other Front-End Developers on the Engineering team to align best-practices and help drive a cohesive design-system.
  • Develop and publish high-quality solutions and interactions with a focus on user-centered design
  • Create rapid prototypes to demonstrate complex and innovative interactions
  • Contribute to Nitro’s comprehensive design system

What we're looking for: 

  • Bachelor’s degree in Engineering, Computer Science, related field, or equivalent practical experience.
  • Demonstrable experience in technical, UX, or design environment
  • Experience with HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript
  • Experience developing for responsive experiences
  • Experience with Java is a bonus

Our goal is to empower our Nitronauts—to make an impact, work better together, and believe any goal is attainable. We take pride in the perks and benefits provided to employees that make their day-to-day lives more enjoyable and secure. Along with competitive comp and equity, and in addition to our regular benefits and programs (including health, dental, vision, retirement as standard), we are also very proud to offer a few additional initiatives to future Nitronauts: 
 
Flex Time Off 
Work-life balance is important at Nitro, and we understand that there are events that we cannot plan for. We are proud to offer Flex Time Off to be used for holidays, spending days with your family, or appointments. 
 
Flexible Forever  
We will offer a flexible work environment forever. This hybrid approach allows our team the flexibility to work remotely and have access to in-person time for collaboration sessions and team offsites. 
 
90 Days Away 
We offer the opportunity for employees to travel and explore while working from anywhere. Employees can extend vacations and spend more time with family, and work from anywhere for up to 90 days. 
 
Nitro Resource Groups 
Nitro supports our diverse group of Nitronauts who come together to celebrate their passions, share their unique perspectives, experiences, and contributions to make Nitro a more inclusive place to work.  
 
Families @ Nitro 
We have the opportunity and responsibility to ensure the well-being of our employees, which includes offering support when and where it matters most. From generous leave to fertility benefits, Nitro supports team members who may be on or considering a path to parenthood, whatever that looks like.
