UX Designer (Product)

0 people like this description

Our client, a digital product development consultancy, is looking for a UX & Product Designer! This role is freelance to start, but there's a potential it could turn perm. For the freelance portion they'd like the person to work onsite in their Providence office 3 days/week (you could work remotely the other 2 days!). Down the line, you'd have the opportunity to work onsite in their Boston office.

Your first project would be working on the overall design and UX for the agency's website - it's the first spot customers go to, so it's an IMPORTANT role! The company itself is a product development consultancy that develops custom software experiences for an array of screens - mobile, tablet, desktop.

The UX / Product Designer will be working alongside a marketing manager (with a creative background) to really strategize and execute the designs. There will not be an Art Director or Creative Management onsite, so this person really needs to take the lead. Someone with a strong design background in digital, visual, UX, product is key!

Designers are responsible for helping clients understand their products and services through the eyes of their users. All of the things they create start by placing users at the center of their design process. However, the right product is not merely enjoyed by users. It is viable to client business goals and technically feasible to implement across the screens that its users enjoy (mobile, tablet, desktop, and more)

They work with clients ranging from Start-ups to Fortune 100 businesses, in diverse industries, from Fashion & Apparel and Music Discovery, to Financial Institutions and Consumer Intelligence. Designers get a lot of different looks at an array of various businesses and problems, so you’ll need to be equally as flexible and interested in learning new things. You will have exposure to projects in every phase of product development. This means initial concepts and prototyping, creating full-featured applications, rescue missions, enhancements to existing products and services, helping client teams create digital brands and bringing new products to market. You will be creating things people have never thought of. You will be in the vanguard of digital business.

The right person will have most of this stuff:

- Experience with all layers of product design: information, interface, visual and market sensitivity.
- Ability to think through problems from concept to execution. From lowest fidelity to high polish deliverables.
- You think of design as a craft. One that can and should be carefully honed through constant exploration and experimentation.
- Empathy. You understand that not all users are the same and translate that into concepts that resonate with the users that matter.
- An attention to detail that some might call obsessive. We pride ourselves on delivering greatness. You should too.
- Outspoken problem solver. We don’t do wallflowers. Be prepared to advance an idea and defend it. (And to iterate based on feedback and criticism.)
- Better than proficient with HTML, CSS, JavaScript (JQuery), Photoshop, Illustrator, Sketch and understanding of an efficient workflow.
- Communicator and a collaborator. No “I” in “Team”, and all that. Lone wolfs need not apply, seriously though.
- Shipper. Ours is a fast-paced Agile environment. Fast-growing, faster-moving, open and collaborative work environment. Be ready to work quickly and fail fast.
- Driven by outcomes. Beautiful designs are great. But did the client get the results they expected? Making sure they do is a critical component for you. No decorators.
