Job Description:

 

Overview:

Our client's users come first, and they believe that delighting users at scale requires having cohesive product experiences across all their apps. Teams that create commonly used UI components work hard to make this easy for app teams. Success requires having comprehensive and useful guidelines to communicate design requirements, user research, and available product features for these UI components.

This production design position would include working with a variety of UX design teams to create a scalable design guideline framework to document and illustrate consistent excellent product experience and expand best design practices across products.

They're looking for a meticulous production designer who can take ownership and identify opportunities to communicate and deliver the highest-quality design guidelines to UX designers and engineers alike. They highly value previous experience working with an app or software firm and or with product user experience designers.

Responsibilities:

  • Partner with content strategist to create digital content in the form of design guidelines and specifications for UX designers.
  • Organize visual content to convey concepts and information so that it is relatable and memorable.
  • Work cross-functionally to create a clear narrative and materials (website, collateral, etc), about a team, their product, their business and vision.
  • Produce assets from designs, organize them, and communicate them in a way that they can be visually referenced and integrated by UX and engineering teams.
  • Manage pixel-perfect component library stickersheets and related assets.
  • Implement working processes for asset production as well as methods for efficiency, communication, and distribution.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Best in class portfolio demonstrating top-notch production design skills for web and mobile platforms.
  • Significant organizational and process skills; ability to both implement efficient working processes as well as process-automation tools.
  • Strong attention to detail and zero tolerance for inconsistency in design.
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills.
  • Confidence in technical knowledge to be able to communicate expectations accurately with engineers and UX.
  • Project management skills related to planning, allocating, and communicating.
  • Commitment to and interest in production design; this position is not specifically a stepping stone to a UX design role.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • 5+ years of experience as a production designer in the software development environment.
  • Understanding of content management systems and automation tools for asset creation.
  • Solid understanding of regional needs for asset localization.
  • Ability to improve UX with good rationale.
  • Familiarity with building design systems a plus.

Client Description:

One thing we know is that this client, as big as it is, is still setting the standard for not only the product they’re turning out, but for the way they conduct business.

Our client is the global leader in technology, with offices in many major cities. As different as those cities are, you can expect that the personality of each office is the same. Commonalities include bringing people together in the physical work space, outlets for creativity (outside work-related exercises), and a setup for brainstorming on the fly, whenever the opportunity strikes.

What they see in your resume, if you’re selected, is your ability to be an autonomous thinker, and a team player; someone focused, and driven to push the envelope who can also let down their guard and have fun with the team while doing it; someone who has the intellectual capacity to challenge even the most innovative thinkers without the hubris that tends to accompany it. No egos here!

Here, everyone is considered a project owner, and expected to give 100%, even when the path forward isn’t necessarily clear.

Work here, and know you’re working with a Forbes #1 rated company.

Work here, and know you’re setting the pace for digital products globally.

Work here, and find the challenge of your career!

And in case you’re afraid you won’t have time for other things, you’ll be able to take advantage of:

  • Fitness center access

  • Discounts on things like dry cleaning and oil changes

  • Free lunches

  • Convenient commuter shuttles
