UI Designer/Developer

Knowsis – Posted by markunsworth London, England, United Kingdom

Job Description

About Knowsis

Knowsis develops technology to collect data about stocks, indices and other tradable assets from a huge array of online sources. We then use Machine Learning techniques, Natural Language Processing and statistical analysis to measure sentiment to help predict financial market movements.

The explosion of online conversation over recent years has presented us with a valuable and rich information source, and one that will continue to grow in importance as it supersedes conventional channels of communication. The implications around the speed, reach and influence of tweets, blog postings and forum messages, for example, is such that investors need to take notice.

Our technology will help make sense of it all. It will aid investment decisions, by giving investors more colour when looking to buy, sell, or monitor an existing portfolio. The team at Knowsis firmly believes that, in the future, sentiment indicators from online conversation will be as commonly used as fundamental and technical analysis is today.

The Role

We're looking for junior UI designer with a passion for great user experience and an eye for good design. You will be responsible for developing the look and feel of our public facing products working with our development team to implement changes to our existing product suite and senior management team to prototype ideas for clients. This is a great opportunity to join an early stage start up and put your mark on the product

Things we're looking for *:

  • Talented UI designer who can either work straight into the browser or translate their designs in to HTML and CSS. (If you can point out any projects you have worked on or have a portfolio include it in your application)
  • Fluent in HTML, CSS with experience of creating standards compliant sites
  • Understanding of responsive design
  • Experience working with javascript and JS frameworks (jquery, mootools) is a plus
  • Experience building WordPress themes is a plus

* We know that great people can adapt and learn, so we're not too fussed about everything on these lists.
