Are you looking for a creative, innovative company known for their exceptional corporate culture? Look no further! AQUENT'S client is looking for a Sr User Experience Designer to contribute to the growth and evolution of THE preeminent immersive media experience brand. Your mission (and theirs) is unique and powerful: fill hearts, minds, and souls with premium audio content that enables learning and literate entertainment.

Our client's user experience team drives visual and interaction design across all platforms and devices, ensuring the product experience renders seamlessly and elegantly across familiar devices and those to come, taking into consideration the nuances between native platforms.

About You
You’re a hacker and harvester of emerging technologies and trends at heart, able to jump into the fray and synthesize compelling consumer audio experiences from a napkin sketch to a whiteboard to a comprehensive requirements document.
You’re a detail oriented, pixel-aware, design-o-phile, interaction expert, dedicated to driving responsive principles across a multi-platform context.

You’re a born collaborator and mentor, eager to work side-by-side with high performance multidisciplinary designers, product managers, researchers and technologists exploring the limits of audio content discovery and consumption experiences.

Key Responsibilities
Own overall end-to-end user experience - from the big picture (owning the overall user experience and consistency across an entire product) down to specifics of UI layout for a feature or service flow.
Create wireframes, storyboards, walkthroughs and paper prototypes to communicate your design to the rest of the team. Iterate in low fidelity to arrive at the best possible design.
Develop detailed wireframes, user flows, mockups, and other product deliverables to effectively communicate designs and product requirements.
Work with cross-functional teams (product managers, engineering, customer service, marketing, merchandising, QA, etc.) on complex user flows and commerce driven projects.
Work seamlessly with the Visual Design department to develop and maintain signature aesthetics, standards and brand integrity.
Envision and develop intuitive, scalable, and engaging interactions and experience designs for multiple platforms (web and mobile).
Work with our in-house User Research department to test features and incorporate user feedback into design iterations.

Skills/Experience Requirements
Collaborate with multiple stakeholders to synthesize and incorporate feedback appropriately with calmness and a user-centered focus.
Understand business goals, product roadmaps and KPIs, and user insights to translate into clear UX priorities for yourself.
Excellent understanding of user experience design for the web, technology trends, demonstrable design skills, and ability to show relevant work.
Excellent interpersonal skills and presentation skills, including the ability to communicate effectively in small and large groups and defend your design decisions.
Ability to work with a variety of teams and individuals -- a “people person” who’s seen as a UX authority and thought leader.
Stay current with the latest design and technology trends across web, desktop, and mobile platforms, and adopt modern techniques as appropriate.
5+ years of experience as a user experience designer, interaction designer, instructional designer, information architect, or similar role.
Proficiency in a variety of design tools such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Fireworks, Visio or Omnigraffle, and Axure.

Preferred Qualifications
Familiarity with user-interface guidelines and best practices for major platforms (popular HTML5, CSS3, javascript, iOS, Android, MacOS, Windows) and an understanding of the capabilities, limitations, and tradeoffs of various technologies.
Experience with HTML5/CSS3/Javascript with an added benefit in actually building prototypes and tools that communicate with SQL, JSON, XML.
Experience developing UI's for international ecommerce websites a plus.
