We have a mission to improve the businesses of our clients by building software that works without delay. Upstate Interactive is a software development agency focused on enterprise clients and we serve them through fast iteration, flat organization, and rapid delivery.

Dream of a working environment where you are encouraged to build your creativity into every page you design, where you are delivering end-users with interfaces and interactions that serve as the basis for their experience with the product, when a project comes in the door and you are directly responsible for contributing your skills and experience to get the users engaged.

At Upstate Interactive we have a strong team of software engineers and are seeking your talent to grow our ability to deliver well-designed user interfaces and experiences in browser environments. The outcomes we are looking for are less “pixel perfect” and more “perfect execution.” So experience with CSS and Angular or React weighs more than Photoshop and Sketch.

What we're looking for:

  • Proficiency with HTML, CSS and JavaScript
  • Extensive experience with component-based frameworks like React, Vue, and Angular
  • Initiative in delivering concepts and prototypes fast
  • 1 - 5 years of experience with web and mobile UI/UX design
  • Passionate about accessibility standards and usability heuristics

Nice to have:

  • Proficiency in SASS
  • Proficiency in Sketch, Photoshop, InDesign, Pixelmator, etc…
  • Print and Graphic design fundamentals
  • Typography
