UX DESIGNER - Software

We are looking for a strong application UX designer for an internal
software application. Are you ready to challenge yourself and take your
design to the next level? Some designers think that software UI is
boring and dry, but those are just the ones who don't understand the
true meaning of pushing the limits. Creating an aesthetically pleasing,
yet functional and smart UI is the hardest, but most rewarding
