As a UI/UX Engineer you are the advocate for user experience, creating product interfaces for a variety of audiences. You’ll use sketches, storyboards and full fidelity prototypes to communicate, educate and sell proper design. You can also expect to refine requirements and collaborate with external departments as part of a cross-functional team. You will build functional interfaces by writing clean, semantic front-end code in Ruby on Rails and other frameworks. It’s a big job, but if you’re an exceptional developer with a passion for user experience we’re sure you’re up to the challenge.

Enova believes in education though total immersion. You’ll jump right into new technologies and a new team. We’ll provide the materials to educate you and a support system to answer your questions and help when you need it. No matter what your skills, you’ll be releasing to our production sites within a few weeks.

We believe in using the best tools. Our application stack includes Ruby, Rails, PostgreSQL, and Debian. As a UI/UX Engineer, you’ll use Rspec, HTML5, JavaScript, CSS3, Haml, SASS and CoffeeScript. We work to stay on the cutting edge of technology and contribute to open source projects, because flexible frameworks build the foundation for our businesses. On average, we release two new products per year, with two code releases per day, and we’re getting faster all the time. We’re dedicated to creating quality software quickly, and we're creating a solid, stable, and flexible infrastructure to get there.

An exceptional engineering team is vital to Enova’s business, and we've built an awesome culture that keeps us passionate about our work.
