User Experience Engineer

Power is seeking a User Experience Engineer to join our team. This engineer will have the ability to define how internal users will interact with our homegrown systems. We are looking for a collaborative UX engineer, who is passionate about creating phenomenal tools that people genuinely want to use.

What we do here

Fancy a unique work environment that is constantly pushing you to try something new? or perhaps stretch your skills by developing as solution for an industry you’ve always wanted to improve?

At Power, we build our own application suite of products to run our entire business. We build complete solutions for finance, recruiting, sales, contact center and even meeting software. These are just some of the areas you’ll get an opportunity to tackle.

We also design solutions for augmented reality in the home, satellite photo measurements and artificial intelligence suggestion engines.

We get to dip our toes in many different fascinating areas and solve unique challenging problems that would on their own be standalone apps or companies. We’re a tech powerhouse built inside a remodeling company.

Our teams are distributed, so we live and die by our ability to successfully collaborate. We collaborate using our own slack chat client. We use our own handoffs tools to support our User Experience team better create and collaborate with development and business groups.

The user experience team is small diverse team made up of UX Designers and UX Engineers. We value diversity of all types at Power and our team is made up of a kind, thoughtful group of people with a wide range of backgrounds. We actively try to find people with different perspectives and experiences to the ones we already have.

With a distributed group it’s important to connect in person, so we fly the whole distributed team to Philadelphia 3 times a year for our week long event called Create, focusing on connecting and learning from each other and the business.

At Power we have all the upsides of a startup, we move fast, ship rapidly, iterate quickly, but with the benefit of an established organization that is well funded and profitable.

The biggest perk of working at Power is that we have a small, talented team with a very large audience. This means you have the ability to have a huge impact on the product and the company, whilst also having really interesting and challenging problems to work on. We believe deeply in what we do and we’re all in this to build something lasting, sustainable and positive.

Power has been awarded Computerworld’s Best Places to Work in IT, Fortune Magazine’s #1 Workplace for Millennials, one of Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work, one of Inc. 5000’s Fastest Growing Private Companies, and Philadelphia Magazine Coolest Companies.
