WIREWAX Role Spec:
Product/UX Designer

 

 
 

Who we are

WIREWAX is the world’s number 1 interactive video technology.

WIREWAX is an award-winning London and New York-based interactive video technology company, that powers the world’s interactive video content. We enable brands such as Disney, Ted Baker, and Dulux to push the creative boundaries of audience engagement and interaction, making their video content more intelligent and interactive. Our core service, WIREWAX Studio uses artificial intelligence to automatically identify every face and object in a video so users can create touchable hotspots, content overlays and video branches designed to tell engaging stories.

The WIREWAX Studio is a SaaS platform, but we also have an in-house Creative Solutions team who collaborate directly with ad agencies and brand clients on unique interactive projects. We’re a very ambitious outfit: our mission is to make video as connected as everything else on the internet, and it’s a mission which is opening up exciting new possibilities for our entire team.

 
 
 

Your mission

18 months in the making, the latest iteration of our Studio platform broke cover earlier this year. It’s been rebuilt from the ground up, with vastly improved performance, features, and UX. However, the work is just beginning: we have a long list of additions and feature improvements which we want to implement in the next 3-6 months in order to make Studio the definitive creative toolset for video content creators.

Working alongside our VP of Engineering, our Product Owner (who happens to be our CEO!) and Creative Brand Director, you will work on all design and UX-related aspects of this development phase.

We’re seeking an entrepreneurial, strategic, technical, and passionate designer to shape our Studio Platform. As our UX/UI designer you will play a big role in perfecting the look and feel of our brand, building on our success and shaping how our product will develop next.
