Touro College is an institution of higher education with dozens of campuses and programs spread out across the NY area, with locations on the West Coast and abroad.
We need a UX/UI Designer to help expand and solidify our brand network online without sacrificing quality and the many improvements we’ve made over the last few years. The candidate will be responsible for creating and maintaining a user experience and user interface across multiple schools and programs that is included in this institution, in addition to keeping the main umbrella site, www.touro.edu, fresh and up to date. This responsibility includes wireframing, design, working with a team of developers, and quality assurance of overall brand design. The candidate must be able to present a vision for his/her work that tells our story, and be able to work with a team to get that vision to a responsive platform.
We’re a small, cohesive team, and organization with tremendous opportunity to make your mark. If you’re passionate about what you do, a self-starter and looking to make a difference, we’re looking for you. We’ve been in need of a UX/UI designer for a while, so your role has been very much alive and under discussion within the web team. Internally, we’ve named you Jonathan, so extra points if your name actually is Jonathan/Joan ;) (Not required though!)
