Company description: At BioRender, we are building a platform to empower scientists to accelerate their research by helping them visually communicate their research. We’re an early stage, fast-paced venture-backed start-up, and your work will directly impact our users and their experience with the product.

We’ve got perks like equity, flexible hours, free coffee, snacks, casual environment, fun off-sites, and a ‘no BS’ culture.

-       Front-end development skills (CSS, HTML5, Javascript)

-       Experience working in health/science related product development is a plus

-       Very detail oriented and have up-to-date knowledge on design trends

-       Passionate about design but always consider functionality over aesthetics

-       Be able to interface/collaborate with full-stack developer for seamless integration

-       Candidate must be eligible to work in Canada

Project details:

-     Work closely with our UX Researcher and full-stack developers to integrate feedback from users to take BioRender’s application interface design to the next level

- Re-design the BioRender.io landing page (marketing site) to ensure cohesiveness with web app

-     Ensure that the web app design integrates well with the rest of the company’s supporting pages (sign-in page, email communication etc)

-     This is a 1-2 month contract position with possibility of extension

-     Assist with promotional design material as needed (conference material, etc)
