We are a small team of industrial software technology veterans solving difficult data science and machine learning challenges. Our clients are Fortune 1000 companies you have definitely heard of. We're VC backed, growing like crazy, and searching for a Leader to drive the development of the User Interface of our Application.  We are looking for someone with exceptional visual design skills that can also turn their visions into reality both by coding themselves and providing direction to the rest of the Front End Development team.  

About TwinThread

The 30% efficiency rate gap between best-in-class and average factories represents a huge growth opportunity. TwinThread’s platform enables industrial OEMs, manufacturers, and service providers to drastically improve their efficiency by taking action on insights enabled by machine learning.

What does that mean? Consider a Fortune 500 company with 1,000 mechanically identical assembly lines – some performing really well, others not as much. Performance variations might be explained by any number of factors. Often, these factors can be adjusted, which leads to massive efficiency gains, but it’s difficult to pinpoint exactly what changes should be made and what those change effects will be.

Enter TwinThread.  Our platform enables users through automated ML (rapidly combing through terabytes of data) to identify, analyze, and implement opportunities for improvement, all through a visual programming IDE and saving a typical customer millions of dollars annually.

Are you excited to help us improve our product and processes to support the growth that is coming at us fast? If you're a self-motivated individual and are looking for a fun, rapidly growing tech start-up, this is the job for you.

JOB DESCRIPTION:

If you live and breathe UX/UI Design and Development and love a startup environment, we want to talk to you.  We are looking for a Visual Designer with the skills needed to design amazing User Interfaces and Experiences that are intuitive to use.  This person also needs the development skills to implement their designs and help lead other contributors to realize their designs.  We understand that bridging these two roles is a big task, so we want to be clear - visual design is the critical skill with software development being a close second.  The ideal candidate will be strong in both.
