User Experience Designer

Did you eat your veggies last night? Or have some fruit for breakfast? If so, there’s a good chance iTrade Network had a hand in it. Our products move produce and other grocery items across the supply chain from field to fork, touching 15% of the world’s food supply in the process.

Our small team is avid about the people and processes that put food on our plates each day, and we’re looking for a fellow designer to help shape the future of grocery. If you’re someone who likes to balance time in the office with time in the field (literally!), this might be the job for you.
