We’re currently seeking a talented and experienced UX/UI Designer to join our growing team.
What to expect:
The Autonomy. We’re not looking for order-followers. You’ll be given responsibility and flexibility to make your own decisions.

The Favoriteers. You’ll be part of a real team. We’re a tight-knit group that respects and supports each other. You’ll know your team has your back!
What you’ll do:
As a UX/UI Designer at Crowd Favorite, you will create engaging and cohesive experiences that identify and anticipate User needs while meeting project requirements within a responsive design framework. In this role, you will execute typical design documents such as site maps, user flows, wireframes, visual designs, and interactive prototypes. You will remain involved throughout the design lifecycle, from ideation through development and into testing, to ensure the delivery of solutions that are as useful as they are beautiful.
