Sr. UX Architect

0 people like this description

Who you are: Simplifier. Empath. Communicator. Designer.
A consummate professional who understands how deep, sustainable change happens: because we commit to doing what we can to move the needle every single day. A UX Architect who sees through complexity and navigates teams into objective simplicity. A synthesizer who knows how to get the information needed, empathizes deeply with the people we want to support, and turns that deep empathy and knowledge into a design that works.

You’ve got 5-7 years of experience and either already have enterprise-level experience or are capable of working at that level. You know how to design research, run workshops, create the right deliverable for the situation, and communicate clearly about your work with people who don’t, as a general rule, understand what you do or how it helps them. You can lead both work and people, and are used to working on a team of UX professionals.

Your portfolio has user research design, execution and findings in it, deliverables that demonstrate your ability to synthesize complex input, and end products that show how you work with other disciplines.

Why we need you: We need the best people to create the best experiences.
The UX team is looking for people who are invested in creating useful, usable experiences for our audiences, both in the digital and real-world context. People who know what both collaboration and cooperation bring to their work, people who don’t give lip service to the word team. People who think on their feet, who can come up with multiple ways to solve design problems without investing any ego into Their One Idea. People who aren’t daunted by the saying, “When you are tired of saying it, people are starting to hear it” because you know that’s what moves the needle of change.


What you’ll be doing: Listening. Designing. Learning.
At first, most of your days will be spent in the building -- and, let’s face it, we all know that sometimes UX people are the ones who do things like sketch a quick wireframe for a deck, build out a basic prototype for a meeting, and even chase down digital assets to make a small update just to help the team out in a sprint. (And build trust and credibility with teams.)

But the big picture of your days and work, which is much more interesting, looks like this:

• You’ll be responsible for designing and running the user research practice– understanding what we need to know, plotting out how we acquire that knowledge, and what we do with it. There is a lot to learn, some data to draw on, an analytics team to support you, and a motivated group of people who genuinely want to make things people need and want.

• The UX team’s scope is the enterprise and as such, we will have to be able to take on each other’s work. We’ll be able to do that because we’ll know that much about each other’s work and point of view on it. A fully staffed, scaled-up team will even switch assignments for quarters at a time.
