UI/UX Designer

0 people like this description

AQUENT is partnering with one of the most amazing companies to help them bring in talented UI/UX Designers for their Digital Team in Downtown Chicago.

Ace designers are a rare breed. So are companies that are amazing to work for.

Fortunately, this Client has both in spades. So maybe you should join them.

Here in Chicago, you will have the privilege of partnering with lots of nationally known brands to bring exceptional products and experiences into the real world, for their customers. This team is on a journey to reimagine and reinvigorate platforms and services.

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 they really know them. That’s possible when customers (and people who aren’t yet customers) are kept at the core of all the 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 they constantly get better at getting better.

A year from now, we’ll be having a conversation about how awesome your first year was if you:

- Work hard to design the most personal experiences people have ever seen.
- Teach the team what you know, and also be humble enough to learn from others.
- Use data to your advantage, and test the heck out of just about everything – whether on low-fidelity prototypes or high-fidelity designs.
- Recognize the people around you when they’ve done something exceptional (because the same will happen to you).
- Measure how well your designs are performing by being specific and purposeful in your work – your brain never stops asking the question “Why are we doing this again?” and you don’t rest until you’ve answered it.
- Didn’t need constant supervision, reminders, or self-assurances – we’re all motivated, organized, self-starters.

Here are some words that shouldn’t freak you out: Adobe CC, HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, creative direction.

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.
