We are The Venture Studio for Latin America. We are a group of entrepreneurs building digital platforms to empower the middle-class of Latin America.

We empower the Latin American middle-class through intentionally designed solutions that give fair access to quality services and better income-generating opportunities. We believe that this is the best way for sustainable economic development — and the most meaningful way to invest our talent and energy.

ABOUT THE ROLE

We are looking for a UX/UI Designer to join Polymath. This role requires a unique blend of real-work experience, with passion for building delightful experiences and products.

Qualifications:

On the formal side of things, you will have:

  • Minimum 3-4 years of relevant experience to the field of UX/UI Design
  • A degree in product design, e.g. graphic/visual design, or ux/ui equivalent experience.
  • We’re expecting you to be knowledgeable about the basic tools to design, build and test new products.
  • Excellent communication skills in Spanish and English
  • Strong grasp on human-centered-design (HCD), planning and conducting user research, user testing, A/B testing, and rapid prototyping.
  • Ability to clearly (visually and verbally) communicate business ideas and product solutions to stakeholders.
  • Ability to quickly build and iterate designs.
  • Understanding of design and prototyping tools like Figma, Adobe Suite, Sketch.
  • Outstanding graphic and information design abilities.

 

To set yourself apart, you will bring:

Basic HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript skills or knowledge on no-code tools

 

On top of that, we are looking for:

Growth mindset - You have a deep desire to learn and improve yourself, and have the resilience required to fail, get up and try again.

 

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO APPLY?

Share with us your track record through your portfolio of projects.

Pick at least three projects, be selective, and pick those that best reflect your skill set.

For each project make sure to include: 

  • Your problem: Describe the challenge
  • Your solution: How did you solve for the users
  • Your process to get there (both from a UX and a UI perspective)
  • Your role in this project - What was your superpower and what were you in charge of

Projects can be team projects or individual projects. We highly recommend a combination of both. Also, be visual, use your own style, and avoid long, dense texts. Instead, we encourage you to use creative formats to showcase your skills. 

You can upload your portfolio as:

  • a file (in the space of the cover letter) 
  • or as a link in the last question

Any application that comes without a portfolio will not be considered.

 

Starting date: Immediate.

Location: Remote
