The Internet of Things (IoT) will unlock trillions of dollars in value over the next 10 years as 50 billion devices are brought online. Aeris is at the forefront of this industry, building networks and applications to enable Fortune 500 clients like Chrysler, Honda and Bosch fundamentally improve their businesses. Headquartered in Silicon Valley with offices in Chicago, London, Delhi, and Tokyo as well as other markets.  We rank among the top ten cellular providers for the IoT globally, powering critical projects across energy, transportation, retail, healthcare and more.

Built from the ground up for IoT and road-tested at scale, Aeris IoT Services are based on the broadest technology stack in the industry, spanning connectivity up to vertical solutions.  As veterans of the industry, we know that implementing an IoT solution can be complex, and we pride ourselves on making it simpler.

 

Our company is in an enviable spot. We’re profitable, and both our bottom line and our global reach are growing rapidly. We’re playing in an exploding market where technology evolves daily and acquisitions / consolidations happen left and right. We’ve got a stellar, strategic management team who find joy in working together and are executing effectively across the board.

 

 A few things to know about us:

  • We put our customers first. When making decisions, we always seek to do what is right for our customer first, our company second, our teams third, and individual selves last.
  • We do things differently.  As a pioneer in a highly-competitive industry that is poised to reshape every sector of the global economy, we cannot fall back on old models. Rather, we must chart our own path and strive to out-innovate, out-learn, out-maneuver and out-pace the competition on the way.
  • We walk the walk on diversity. We’re a brilliant and eclectic mix of ethnicities, religions, industry experiences, sexual orientations, generations and more – and that’s by design. We see diverse perspectives as a core competitive advantage.
  • Integrity is essential. We believe in doing things well – and doing them right. Integrity is a core value here: you’ll see it embodied in our staff, our management approach and growing social impact work (we have a VP devoted to it).  You’ll also see it embodied in the way we manage people and our HR issues: we expect employees and managers to deal with issues directly, immediately and with the utmost respect for each other and for the Company.
  • We are owners. Strong managers enable and empower their teams to figure out how to solve problems. You will be no exception, and will have the ownership, accountability and autonomy needed to be truly creative.

As we continue to expand and grow, we are looking for a talented UI/UX Designer to create amazing user experiences for our various IoT solutions.  You should have an eye for clean design, possess superior UI skills and be able to translate high-level requirements into interaction flows and artifacts, and transform them into intuitive, and functional user interfaces. You will be based out of our Chicago, IL office located in the heart of River North!  We have a collaborative workspace with open desks, recreation space, and a round-the-clock fully stocked cafeteria to name just a few of our perks.

  • You will collaborate with product management and engineering to define and implement innovative solutions for the product direction, visuals and experience
  • You will conceptualize original ideas that bring simplicity and user friendliness to complex design roadblocks
  • Translate concepts into wireframes and mockups that lead to intuitive user experiences
  • Design and deliver wireframes, user stories, user journeys, and mockups optimized for a wide range of devices and interfaces
  • You are comfortable presenting your designs and key milestone deliverables to peers and executive level stakeholders
  • Conduct user research and evaluate user feedback
  • You are confident in making strategic design and user-experience decisions related to core, and new, functions and features
  • Execute all visual design stages from concept to final hand-off to engineering
  • Lead and manage external design partners, establishing design guidelines, best practices and company-wide standards
  • Identify design problems and devise elegant solutions
  • You should have a user-centered design approach and can rapidly test and iterate your designs


What we look for in you:

  • You have proven at least 5+ years of hands-on UI experience, including Web and Mobile UI/UX development
  • You have demonstrable UI design skills with a strong portfolio

  • You have experience working with and managing outside design partners to lead the direction of all design work
  • You have hands-on experience using HTML, CSS, and optionally JavaScript for rapid prototyping
  • You have excellent visual design skills with sensitivity to user-system interaction
  • Ability to solve problems creatively and effectively
  • You are a life-learner and stay up-to-date with the latest UI trends, techniques, and technologies
  • You enjoy working in an Agile/Scrum development process

 

 

Aeris walks the walk on diversity. We’re a brilliant mix of varying ethnicities, religions, cultures, sexual orientations, gender identities, ages and professional/personal/military experiences – and that’s by design.
