UX Architect // Denver, CO

As System76 UX Architect, you distill complex systems and interactions—whether in software or physical products—into clear user journeys. You strive to design, implement, and continuously improve excellent user experiences around open source software and open hardware. You thrive in the intersection of design and engineering, and can understand and translate between both.

You understand formal UX testing and design practices, as well as how and when to apply them to different situations.

You’ll craft, lead, share, and support user experience efforts across the entire company, including internal systems, web properties, consumer software, hardware products, packaging, and any point at which a customer interacts with System76. You not only “do design,” but help encourage a human-centered, design-first approach throughout the company.

  • Experience designing user experiences of critical customer-facing products
  • Familiarity with formal user-driven design processes, including qualitative to quantitative methods
  • Experience with UX tools such as user interviews, personas, card sorting, and user testing
