Ms. Catherine Hernandez
Full Time

You are the intersection of technology and design.

At Chartbeat we don’t compromise form for function, and neither do you. User interaction, visual design, and clean code are equally important in great web apps and equally what you do best.

You work by visualizing a product and executing on it from start to finish - being involved every step of the way, and making decisions with the feedback of clients and your teammates. You’ll be meeting clients, working directly with product managers and your incredibly talented Engineering and Design teams.

Designing Engineers or Engineering Designers. Potayto, potahto.

It’s incredibly important to think about what you’re building while you’re building it. You’re not just pulling together a mockup or building a spec, you’re building a working prototype, watching how people use it and adapting and iterating on it as you go.

Rapid prototyping, customer feedback, and responsive, intuitive design are your favorite things. Every challenge is one you’re willing to accept, and you won’t settle for half an answer, an OK solution.

You can’t contain your creativity, customer empathy, and design sensibility anyway, so don’t even try. Know you’re in good company.
