UI/UX Designer

0 people like this description

AQUENT is partnering with one of our COOLEST clients to help identify a talented UI/UX Designer in the McLean area. Are you an experienced Visual Designer with a passion for innovative and inspiring design? Are you a conceptual creative who grounds his or her ideas in strong strategic and insightful thinking? If you're ready to put those skills to work in a fun and challenging environment, then look no further - we'd love to have you on our team!

This is a contract position with Full-Time hours, through the end of the year, sitting on-site with our client, with extension potential (extensions are based on performance)

Here's a little more info about this awesome position:
You will be designing experiences for both our internal associates as well as our passionate customers. You will focus on improving existing web properties and help us define and design the next generation of our servicing experiences.

Plan on directly engaging users in empathy research, digging in with product partners, sketching, concepting, and rapidly wireframing beautiful solutions all while leveraging (and growing) our existing design patterns. You’ll also collaborate directly with developers as they bring your designs to life.

But heads-up, it’s only going to be a great fit if you’re a little bit of all these things:

- Customer Advocate: People who experience our designs should feel like we really know them. That’s possible when we keep our customers (and people who aren’t yet our customers) at the core of all our designs.
- Design Thinker: You’ll uncover real business problems, prototype low-fidelity ways of solving that problem, and then design full-scale experiences that serve millions of people every. single. day.
- Interaction Designer: Your designs are fun to use. People say, “Huh, that was easy,” without you having to explain anything to them.
- Visual Designer: You know how to create beautiful things, but more importantly, you’re brave enough to cut everything if it’s not working. Simplicity, editing, and a fierce focus on the most important elements is part of what defines your design philosophy.
- Entrepreneur: You’ll think about your designs as a business; it needs a purpose—whether to solve a problem, entertain, educate, or delight—and you’ll measure its performance against these goals.
- Data Scientist: You’ll seek out analytics and user testing data to help you make design decisions, support your design decisions, and iterate on your past design decisions – all so we constantly get better at getting better.

Here are some words that shouldn’t freak you out: Sketch, InVision, Adobe CC, HTML5, CSS, 5 years experience.

And here are three reasons why you might want to apply:
1. You want to be on a team full of practical people who want to do the best design of their lives AND not work more than a regular person should
2. You are too good to NOT be designing for millions of people who need your help everyday to understand, access, and manage their money better
3. Free healthy snacks, infinite coffee + drinks, adjustable-height desks, Mac everything, foosball, and much much more!!
