Interaction designers at Ziba are thinkers and makers. We have a passion for solving problems and creating experiences people love. We communicate digitally through form, function and motion. Our intention is to humanize technology and create the best possible user experience. We consider motion, structure and beauty equally, and strive to get functional prototypes into the hands of users early and often.

  • Knowledgable about how technology constraints and capabilities impact the end user experience.

  • Knowledgeable about interaction design methodology and processes.

  • Comfortable working in cross-disciplinary teams in a variety of fields.


You can:

  • Analyze client and customer needs to generate user requirements to inform design.

  • Contribute to design research via concept generation, evaluation and synthesis.

  • Translate architecture and interaction needs into appropriate visual designs that balance function and beauty.

  • Produce development-friendly visual assets that support your designs.

  • Prototype your ideas to test them in the real world.

  • Collaborate with developers to reinforce design intent as it transitions from idea to reality.

  • Communicate effectively across a variety of mediums including writing, speaking, visuals and motion.
