UI/UX Designer

Position description

CEA is looking for a UI/UX designer to lead the visual identity of some of EA's most prominent websites, including effectivealtruism.org and particularly the EA Forum.


You will design the visual identity of some of EA's most prominent websites, including effectivealtruism.org and particularly the EA Forum. As an example of a project you might take on: our user interviews have revealed that many people are making connections with each other on the EA Forum, and we believe there is huge untapped value in being able to better connect these people, but we need to create designs which do this while still preserving the existing sources of value that people get from reading posts, commenting, etc. As a small example of the kind of work you might do, here are some mockups made for the new community and events pages. You will be the first design hire at CEA, and must be comfortable pioneering design work.


We expect that you will:

  • Be capable of creating mockups and understand core principles of web design. We generally use Figma for mockups, but experience with this is not required.
  • Have career plans that are driven, in large part, by a desire to maximize your social impact.
  • There are no formal requirements for previous experience for this position, however we expect that most candidates will have 2-10 years of professional experience.

Please link to your portfolio or past work in the “Additional info” section of the application.


  • Develop and maintain a distinctive visual style for the core organizations in effective altruism which is in keeping with the movement’s broad goals and values.
  • Implement that visual style across various online products.
  • Design and deliver wireframes and mockups optimized for a wide range of devices and interfaces.
  • Take a user-centered design approach and rapidly test and iterate.
  • Collaborate with other team members and stakeholders.
  • Ask questions, take risks and champion new ideas.
