    As a UI/UX Designer and Developer at Stream, you’ll be an integral part of the Creative and Marketing teams as well as work closely with IT and our development partner. You’ll bring design-thinking to every project, as you seek to solve problems and further business initiatives in a creative and strategic way. In this role, you’ll be responsible for all aspects of the user experience, including designing beautiful, intuitive, responsive websites and interfaces, designing and developing email templates, creating, managing and utilizing a pattern library, creating wireframes, prototypes, updating web properties and coding HTML and CSS. This is a hybrid role where a typical week would be split with about 70-80% UI/UX and 20-30% front-end development.

Great design (and development) can change lives.
