About Liferay 

Liferay, Inc. is a uniquely profitable B2B enterprise software company with 1,000  fiery-eyed employees all across Europe, the Americas, Middle East, and Asia. As the leading provider of enterprise open source technologies, we have been recognized by Gartner for empowering businesses around the world to solve complex digital challenges.  Our flagship product is the Liferay Digital Experience Platform, which companies like HP, Domino’s, and Airbus use to build customized experiences for their customers and employees.  But we don’t just make awesome software, we are also fueled by a greater-than-profit vision. By building a vibrant business, making technology useful, and investing in communities, we make it possible for people to reach their full potential to serve others. We give our employees five days paid off to volunteer at charities they’re excited about, and Liferay donates 10% of our profits to charities around the world. Oh, we’re also self-funded which gives us the freedom to work on whatever we think brings the most value to customers and communities in the long run!

Things you’ll need for success:

  1. Communication skills
    Arguably one of the most important skills a designer can have — excellent communication skills now more than ever, are a must.  We are an international company, so being comfortable communicating in English is required.
  2. Eagerness to work with others
    The AC team is highly collaborative — the ability to empathize, connect, and succeed with people who are different than you are is critical.
  3. Proficiency in modern design tools
    We use Figma — you don’t need to have experience with it, but you’ll need to learn it quickly so a track record of tool competency is helpful.

 

You'll be mentored by a senior designer, so prior experience isn’t necessary, but some other things that would help you stand out:

  • Analytics background
  • SaaS experience
