UX Designer

The Daily Texan is shifting its focus to digital! We are looking for a talented user experience designer who wants to lead the transformation of the DT’s online experience.

What you can expect

  • A fast-paced, independent project: You’ll be working on creating wireframes and mockups for a new digital experience. This will include both low-fidelity wireframes and high-fidelity mockups, as well as some information architecture if you’re interested.
  • An 8-week commitment: This is a short commitment (9/15 – 11/10) but if you’d like to stay longer, you are definitely welcome to.
  • Flexible hours: You have complete control over when you work. Busy week? No problem.
  • A collaborative experience with mentorship: Work directly with and learn from the web director and a UI Designer
  • A finished product: Add those mockups and writeups to your portfolio when you’re done
  • Bonus: You’ll be compensated for time and expertise

What we’re looking for

  • You love good design but also think about technical specs
  • You just feel when experiences are good, or bad. More than that, you can articulate why
  • An online portfolio (or two-three previous work samples)
  • Experience with creating wireframes and mockups
  • Experience with HTML/CSS


  • Experience with Sketch

Apply here. We’ll get in touch with you soon!
