About Vehikl

We are active members of the PHP community as specialists in web app development, specifically with the Laravel framework.

Product Designer

So you're thinking of joining the Vehikl team. We'd love to have you!

As a part of our team, you are comfortable with both low-fidelity wireframes and/or high-fidelity prototyping. Most importantly, you can communicate design concepts with ease, and you are able to transform your designs into visually pleasing, usable interfaces.

You know that pleasing User Experiences are at the heart of great design. The products you design meet real user needs that reach beyond showcase pieces. As the result of in-depth analysis of the people who will use the product and the design patterns that will meet the needs of the users, the designs you create are useful and insightful.

You welcome the opportunity to work with back-end developers to put your designs into production. You view the client as a valuable asset to the project, and are able to collaborate with them to build great products.

As a new member of our team, we will help you develop an eye for the balance between beautiful interface design and the practical study of user interactions and behavior. We will work with you so that you are able to continue to learn new skills and hone your craft as a part of the Vehikl team.

We will provide opportunities to enjoy the company of other designers and developers at conferences, peer-to-peer groups, community networking events, and company outings.
