Job Description:

​Design and user experience (UX) are at the forefront of everything we do. The job of an Interaction Designer is to envision how people experience our products and bring that vision to life in a way that feels inspired, refined, and even magical.

In an Interaction Designer role, you’ll take on complex tasks and transform them into intuitive, accessible, and easy-to-use designs—ranging from novice to sophisticated users. Achieving this goal requires that you collaborate closely with teams of Designers, UX Researchers, Engineers and Product Managers throughout the design process—from crafting user flows and wireframes to building user interface mockups and prototypes. At each stage, you will anticipate what our users need, advocate for them and ensure that the final product surprises and delights them. 

Responsibilities:
• Help to define the user model and user interface for Client products and features. 
• Develop high level and/or detailed storyboards, mockups, and prototypes to effectively communicate interaction and design ideas. 
• Gauge the usability of new and existing products and making constructive suggestions for change.

Skill/Experience/Education:
Mandatory:

  • BA/BS degree in Design (e.g. interaction, graphic, visual communications, product, industrial, etc) Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Computer Science (CS) or a related field, or equivalent practical experience. 
  • 3 years experience in UX space minimum. 
  • Portfolio is required. Please include in header area.

Desired/Preferred Qualifications:
• MA/MS degree in Design, HCI, CS, or a related field. 
• Experience working with web or mobile based technologies such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Android Studio, XCode, etc. 
• Demonstrated experience in crafting usable digital interfaces. 
• Demonstrated visual design sensibilities as they relate to applying a brand to digital experiences. 
• Excellent leadership, communication and collaboration skills.

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
