Job Description:

Interaction designer will transform complex concepts into intuitive, accessible, and easy-to-use designs. You will be expected to coordinate with creative leads and business development teams in order to build products that reflect the rapidly-changing needs of the market. You will also drive and execute detailed designs (interaction, visual), facilitate a rapid design and development process, and coordinate with PM/Eng partners to realize the vision for emerging ads, best practices, and design principles.

Daily Responsibilities:

  • Create new designs, including (but not limited to) user flows, wireframes, mocks, and prototypes.
  • Communicate design intent to stakeholders. Clearly rationalize and justify design work and advocate for users’ needs.
  • Collaborate effectively on a team and be willing to explore all options. Design is grounded in constraints, which serve as boundaries to work within and barriers to creatively overcome. The craft is knowing when to conform and when to push the edge.
  • Work closely with user researchers to better inform designs through users’ point of view.
  • Deliver the designs for each release by following through on details with the Engineering team and driving fit-and-finish polish.


Skill/Experience/Education:
Mandatory:

  • BA/BS degree in Design (e.g. interaction, graphic, visual communications, product, industrial), Human–Computer Interaction (HCI), Computer Science (CS), or a related field 
  • 5+ years of UI/UX design in digital products and responsive web design
  • Strong knowledge of Sketch, Adobe Illustrator, and Google Suite (slides, sheets, docs) 
  • Tactical hands on design capabilities + ability to present solutions aligned to strategic goals 
  • Strong project management skills 
  • Excellent critical thinking and communication skills 
  • Ability to follow existing design guidelines to create design patterns 
  • Experience working with user research and applying it into your design 
  • Ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously and work under ambitious timeframes in a fast paced, high-pressure environment

Desired:

  • Experience with data-driven decision making and building enterprise tools.
  • Experience with animation and prototyping: After-Effects, Camtasia, InVision Web development experience: HTML, CSS and Javascript
  • Understanding of technical requirements, technical constraints, and limitations as they apply to designing for platforms such as desktop and mobile, Android and iOS.
  • Scrappy (e.g., be able to jump in and get your hands dirty, find the right balance between cost and quality to fit the need) to deliver what is needed.
  • Experience in designing usable mobile interfaces from pre- to post-launch.
  • Tactical hands on design capabilities + ability to present solutions aligned to strategic goals

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
