Description

LOOKING FOR DESIGNERS OR DEVELOPERS TO JOIN YOUR TEAM?

General Assembly welcomes companies and hiring managers to meet graduates of our User Experience Design and Web Development Immersive Programs. During this end of course show, our graduates will be on-hand to showcase their projects and portfolios and ready to talk to you about opportunities within your team. As a reminder, GA can help you find new talent at no cost to you.


MEET UX DESIGNERS WHO CAN:

  • Execute each stage of the UX lifecycle, from user research to prototyping to interaction and interface design.
  • Confidently express design ideas through sitemaps, user flows and wireframes and can then translate these into clickable prototypes and visual mockups.
  • Utilize tools such as Sketch, Axure, Adobe Illustrator and Invision.

Addtionally, our designers all have experience working with clients as well as 3 additional concept projects, an understanding of visual design fundamentals and front-end web development. Each project is pitched at the end of the sprint as well as deliverables and a spec doc that’s submitted for feedback.

MEET DEVELOPERS WHO CAN:

  • Create beautiful front end applications using HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery, and React.
  • Build test-driven server side/back-end software using Node.
  • Manage software versioning with Git.

Our Web Development graduates are adept in working within an agile environment, can pair-program and are taught the fundamentals of Test Driven Development and UX Design.


Our graduates have gone on to successful careers at companies like Bazaarvoice, IBM, Frog Design, Razorfish, Fjord, Blackbaud, Atlassian, USAA, Indeed, T3, Q2ebanking and hopefully yours!
