Briza... the air cooler company? Nope! Briza, the technology startup connecting small businesses, insurance brokers and carriers in the buying of commercial insurance -- initially focused on the US market. We’re a seed-stage company headquartered in Toronto, Canada at 325 Front Street.

Briza is hard at work creating the most delightful and easy to use infrastructure for connecting insurance carriers with brokers for small business customers. We’re creating the first transaction processing rail that enables brokers to offer real-time commercial insurance products, quotes and contracts to small businesses. What we’ve all seen happen to restaurant booking, travel booking, and auto insurance, is now finally coming to the more complex world of commercial insurance.

To maximize the utility of this powerful infrastructure, we’re designing and building the easiest to use tools that enable customer-facing web and mobile apps to intelligently collect information, guide an intuitive decision path, generate quotes and contracts, and finally accept payment. We have a very experienced and well-balanced founding team, and are looking for exceptional people to join our new venture.

As a UX/UI Designer on the team Briza, you will work alongside designers, developers and marketers to shape our brand, website and product.

You may be a good fit for the role if you:
Find joy in developing user experiences and delivering user interfaces that are valuable, intuitive and guided.

Have a deep appreciation and understanding of user experience (including research, user-centered design techniques, information architecture, usability testing) applying it to create compelling digital experiences.

Have confidence with typography, colour theory, iconography, aesthetics, and application of brand attributes.

Have strong listening, organization, and communication skills regarding UI design process, methods and rationale.

Have strong prototyping skills with tools like Figma and Sketch
Have experience creating specs for UI deliverables, including UI states and behaviours, all using a design system.

Are able to bring designs alive in HTML, CSS (at least one of PostCSS, Tailwind or Sass) and some JavaScript.

Bonus points if you:

Have experience with design thinking and user testing.

Are a strong advocate for mobile-first (and have a portfolio to prove it).

Are comfortable getting hands-on with a Frontend framework (we love VueJS)
