UX Designer

Sandbox is Northeastern’s student led software consultancy that aims to unleash the power of student-driven software. Our clients are scientists in a wide range of disciplines, and we build solutions to accelerate their research. We also develop in-house tools for the Northeastern community, such as and GraduateNU (a tool to help students build a plan of study).

We're looking for UX designers to design stunning user experiences for our projects. As a UX designer in Sandbox, you'll join a team of developers and a project lead to deliver a real application to production. Whether we're building for clients or for the Northeastern community as a whole, we have a strong focus on users. We conduct user interviews, create user personas, and many teams run weekly design meetings with the whole team.

Meet our Spring 2020 designers and learn more about their Sandbox experience!

The most tight-knit, supportive community I have ever been part of, but also the most talented yet fun people I've ever met. Genuinely not exaggerated at all, they are some of the MOST talented people I know who know how to enjoy life too.
