UX Designer EarthXLondon, England, GB
EarthX is the data visualization platform for everyone. We make it easy to tell stories with geospatial data.
We are looking for senior team member able to operate at director level with a ‘big picture’ vision for our platform.
The UX/UI Lead will be responsible for ensuring a fluid and consistent User Experience (and workflow) throughout the entire platform. You will wireframe improvements to our UX. Equally, you will be able to modify graphics, colours, fonts, styles, etc. of our current UI to make it more intuitive. The role requires a stronger emphasis on UX but with solid hands-on UI experience.
You will work closely with the development executive teams to create compelling and thoughtful user experiences. You have a keen eye for clean and artful design; your superior UI skills allow you to translate high-level requirements into high-fidelity wireframes. You like to communicate your ideas with pixel perfect clarity, therefore you prefer to breathe life into your designs by way of prototyping and animation.
Initially, we are looking to hire on a full time 4-month contract (Now – August) which will convert into a full-time staff role thereafter if we have the right person

EarthX is an open B2B2C platform that provides users with an engaging experience of creating and learning from geospatial data. The platform allows users to map georeferenced data and transform it into Layers and GeoStories to bring geospatial data to life in a way that is easy to read and interpret.
Our creation suites enable anyone – no matter their skillset – to create a highly engaging Layer or GeoStory within just a few clicks, and no training. The Layer and GeoStory Creators are designed to produce professional level results with a consumer interface. Our GeoStory Creator is the first of its kind.
EarthX makes it fun to explore, easy to navigate, and provides novel insights learned through unique and seamless content delivery systems. EarthX is not sector specific, allowing visualisation of all types and formats of georeferenced data, from ecosystem sciences through to ethnographic and technical data.
