Will add your own unique perspective to the mix, helping to continue our long-standing tradition of fostering a welcoming and open environment where creativity and innovation can thrive, and where you can excel and make a positive impact every day.
Potential candidates must possess several vital soft skills. You should be:
- A thinker—You’re thoughtful and deliberate in your design choices and can readily articulate your thinking to members of the team.
- A communicator—You’ve got the social skills to understand (or explain) what needs to be changed, and why. You embrace criticism to spur insightful dialog and positive action, rather than seeing it as a reason to be defensive or to shut down.
- A negotiator—There’s no perfect interface and no right answer. You’re able to create different options and translate the tradeoffs between them in the context of business objectives.
- A facilitator—You know how to set ego aside to better promote collaboration with others to move the project forward as one collective team. You’re a team player, not a soloist.
Portfolio: A strong portfolio is critical for interviewing for this role. You must be able to demonstrate your skills and experience through a compelling design presentation. Specifically, we want to see a showcase of your UX and interaction design skills, including examples of how you have taken complex user scenarios and translated them into elegant UX solutions. But we don’t want to see just pretty pictures—you must explain your thinking and walk us through your design process from start to finish. Include any materials from your process that you think would be appropriate to help tell the story—wire frame diagrams, white board sketches, early designs, final designs, interactive prototypes. While we do appreciate seeing a diversity of portfolio work, please limit your presentation to focus on three key projects, but feel free to keep a handful of others at the ready for additional conversation if deemed necessary.
