Cultural Care Au Pair (a division of EF Education First) is seeking a UI Designer to join our growing team and oversee the look, feel, and flow of all things digital.

From designing mobile apps, to concepting digital product flows, all the way through to leading the design direction of our front-facing web properties, the UI Designer will be the point person for all of our interactive creative efforts.

As part of this truly global team, you’ll work out of our Boston office, but interface regularly with our team in Lucerne, Switzerland, helping to guide the digital experience needs of twenty-three different operating markets.

Like being a small fish in a big pond? Want to be a tiny cog in a huge machine? Enjoy working only on one narrow piece of a large project? Then this isn’t the role for you.

This is a hands-dirty, hands-on position. It’s a position that requires someone who truly loves the work it takes to bring an idea from napkin sketch, all the way through to live product. It’s a position where making things and making things happen is not only possible, but necessary.
