Elixxir is looking for a UI/UX designer on a full-time contract basis to be the lead designer for our mobile apps. We are building the first private messaging and payments platform (Think iMsg, WeChat, Venmo) that runs on a blockchain platform. We have implemented some initial in-house designs into app prototypes but we need someone that can lead a complete redesign process in order to really push forward the unique privacy characteristics that our technology provides.
For some context on who we are, Elixxir is a well-funded blockchain and mixnet platform developed by the inventor of the blockchain, David Chaum. Elixxir is the first blockchain platform with the privacy and scalability requirements to make blockchain technology possible for mainstream use cases. As our backend team works towards a public Beta launch of the Elixxir network, the frontend team is working on a payment and messaging app which, when combined with the backend, will be the most secure and private way to send messages or payments in the world.
This technology will eventually scale to enable larger social media use-cases and allow for a new generation of internet applications where your personal data is not vulnerable to abuse by large corporations or governments: https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2018/dec/19/facebook-shared-user-data-private-messages-netflix-spotify-amazon-microsoft-sony
As you can imagine the messaging space is a tough space to break into and that's why we want to build a UI/UX experience that blows away our users. We are looking for people that have the artistic talent to design a next-generation social media experience and we're hoping you can help lead the charge.
Please submit your resume and a portfolio. We're looking to fill this position immediately.
