Looking for a Lead Experience Designer, someone who has a STRONG UX background with Product Experience.

This lead would manage 1 person to start, but would be responsible to build out the team and design capability within the office. The ideal candidate would be interested in team building, culture building, management and mentorship. The XD Lead is also hands on, and will be expected to be a "maker" as much as a manager.

POSITION OVERVIEW: LEAD EXPERIENCE DESIGNER

- Consider the moments of engagement, or touch-points, between people and brands, as well as the ideas, emotions and memories these moments create
- Implement a cross-discipline perspective that considers multiple aspects of the brand/business/experience and creates a way for businesses to align with design to solve problems
- Translate strategic design into controls, mechanisms and processes that users require to meet goals
- Communicate the product’s vision to partners and customers to test and explore venture opportunities
- Develop artifacts or images to make opportunities tangible for multiple audiences

- Create design briefs that outline design iterations, prioritized concepts and timelines
- Develop choices around design and user interfaces that allow cross-discipline teams to solve customer pain points and challenges
- Develop initial, low fidelity visual designs for prototypes, as well as information and content strategy that includes graphical representations of quantitative data or other information elements
- Perform wireframe iterations based on feedback from internal reviews and user testing
- Construct quick interactive prototypes that illustrate your UX/UI design: functional with modern effects, animations, and transitions as appropriate, that present a realistic feel of the intended experience

- A bachelor’s degree, preferably in interaction design, HCI, or another relevant design field

- Expertise in building interactive prototypes to illustrate your own UX & UI design for web sites and mobile apps using modern technologies: from quick prototyping tools such as InVision/Flinto to more detailed prototyping with - - - Origami/Quartz, Xcode, or tools with similar depth
- For Lead Designer: 5+ years of experience in a start-up environment and exposure to cross-discipline teams, preferably having been a startup founder or in a lead/senior hands-on position designing user experience from conception to minimum viable products to large scale launch & adoption
