Job Description:

Our valued client in the Energy industry is seeking a Sr. UX Designer for a long term opportunity. 

Paid time off + Holiday pay + medical, dental, vision, 401K match + Sick time! 

The Upstream division makes multi-million dollar decisions every day to locate and produce energy products that will power and enable communities around the world.  Forming and communicating these decisions requires a team of the most talented scientists, engineers, and operators to collect and analyze large, highly-technical data .  As if that's not hard enough, we find that these super-brains are frequently saddled with manual, inefficient tools and processes.   
As part of our UX design team, you'll design innovative, research based solutions to tough technical problems.  You'll also develop domain knowledge while working closely with development and project teams to make sure that the designed solution is implemented.
In return, you'll have opportunities to work with and design for users across the globe as well as gain a deep understanding of the unique, scientific challenges of the Oil & Gas industry. You’ll also be part of a highly-collaborative team (feels more like a family) of some of the most talented UX designers and researchers in the business making marked improvements on how our users/customers work. 
Job Responsibilities
Design innovative solutions which make users more productive so that they can focus on really tough challenges and not their tools.
Understand research findings and incorporate them into your designs.
Communicate designs through sketches, wireframes, and prototypes as needed.
Design elegant interfaces and processes which make the complex, simple.
Communicate, influence, and collaborate with other UX team members, stakeholders, and project teams.
Adapt and flex to dynamic project needs and priorities.
Collaborate with other designers to critique designs, build on standards, and contribute to the upstream technical design language.
Maintain project flexibility, nimbleness, and velocity to respond to dynamic business needs.
At least 3 years of experience in UX design preferred
Enjoy collaboration with a diverse team including designers, non-designers, and those from different cultures or backgrounds
Demonstrate initiative, flexibility, teamwork, and an eagerness to learn
Find consensus and compromise as needed
Have experience designing for web apps and/or desktop applications
Have experience working on an Agile software team
Have a portfolio which demonstrates your ability to understand and solve tough problems and illustrates your design process
Able to work onsite at our campus in Spring, TX or at least travel for meetings, but willing to consider fully remote.
