What we're looking for:

  • You are willing to relocate to Thailand - full visa and relocation provided
  • UX Prototyper with a combination of design and engineering skills

  • Understand prototyping is not about shipping, its about pushing the boundaries of technology without having to worry about code quality
  • Design and deliver new features, user interactions, test new concepts and build engaging prototypes by using the latest in front-end technologies
  • Collaborate with design, product, and engineering teams to bring product ideas to life

Requirements:

  • HTML/CSS/Javascript development experience is beneficial
  • Experience with modern javascript libraries (jQuery, node) a plus
  • Experience with prototyping platforms (framer.js, pixate, origami) a plus
  • Excellent communication, presentation, and interpersonal skills with fluency in English
  • Bachelor's degree

The Company:

Our client is the largest and fastest growing online hotel booking platform in Asia, and part of the largest online travel company in the world. Despite the success and size of the company, they still operate with a start-up feel; you get to be part of choosing where and what you're working on, the technologies and how they solve the business concerns.

This position is open to worldwide candidates and assistance will be provided for ensuring a smooth transition to working and living in Bangkok.
