Are you a creative, curious, experienced UX Designer looking to join a growing design team? Join our client’s Appstore team to drive the Appstore expansion in a rapidly growing market, creating new logistics benchmarks and “firsts” through disruptive innovation.

We’re seeking a mobile-savvy UX Designer to create new products and experiences from concept to market. Must have extensive experience with design strategy, emerging technology, lean UX and a honed visual aesthetic. This is a great opportunity if you are someone who wants to join a design team in the early stages of building fun and innovative products, and leverage your experience of best practices and potential pitfalls.

What you’ll do:

  • You’ll design user experiences to translate complex workflows into UIs that are intuitive and delight our users, owning the process from the early-stage concepts all the way through delivery and success measurement.
  • You’ll partner with stakeholders and the extended Appstore product team to decide what many of our next gen products and services will look and behave.
  • As an influential design lead on the product team, you will inform our design activities via in depth user research, partner out-reach, and iterative implementation and analysis.
  • You will identify opportunities, problem solve, and create engaging experiences for millions of customers worldwide.

Key responsibilities:

  • Create elegant and intuitive user experiences by incorporating user insights, business requirements, and technical constraints.
  • Lead the design planning and strategic phases of a project. Proactively pitch new CX ideas backed by strong, well-articulated rationale.
  • Quickly and iteratively create user flows, wireframes, prototypes, and high fidelity mockups with detailed and scalable visual design specifications for web and mobile interfaces throughout the design process.
  • Independently deliver design solutions for problems of large scope and complexity. Work through ambiguity, and adapt your approach to meet the needs of multiple stakeholders.
  • Be a champion for user-centered design by testing your solutions in front of users. Be willing to build lightweight prototypes, and independently conduct quick user testing.
  • Present design work to UX, Product, and Engineering teams, as well as stakeholders and executive leadership.
  • Contribute to design team principles & libraries, as well as development best practices.
  • Develop and nurture relationships across teams and disciplines to promote collaboration and efficiency of Appstore projects.

Basic qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree in design, human-computer interaction (HCI), visual communication, or equivalent professional experience.
  • 8+ years of professional work experience as a UX designer, interaction designer, brand designer, or similar design-related role.
  • An online portfolio or samples of work demonstrating experience in user-centered design solutions and product design innovation, which illustrate solving multi-platform UX challenges and demonstrate scalable, user-friendly design solutions.
  • High degree of proficiency in a variety of design and prototype tools such as Sketch, Invision, Figma, Principle, Framer and the Adobe Creative Suite.

Preferred qualifications:

  • Ability to collect, synthesize and react to feedback from the team leads, product leads and engineering leads
  • Experience designing user interfaces on mobile devices
  • Experience developing a design language and system that uses visuals, motion and sound in concert
  • Excellent time management skills and the ability to be self-directed when needed
