User Experience Designer

0 people like this description

Aquent's electronic client located in West Los Angeles is seeking a User Experience Designer to include their hands in every part of product development. Our client is increasingly developing app-enhanced and app-controlled devices, and UX shapes the user interactions. You will work on hardware, software, and in-app experiences, a champion for real people from research phase through product launch. The connections between hardware, software and users are critical to delighting consumers, building the brand and succeeding in the market. You will collaborate with product management, marketing, branding, industrial design and engineering to design complete and compelling product experiences.

Responsibilities include but not limited to the following:

Research – You can find ways to learn what you need to create an excellent experience for a variety of users in a variety of contexts.
Evaluation – You can expertly evaluate an existing or competitive product, insightfully bringing opportunities and pitfalls to light.
Iterative design and testing – You're eager to try your early work on real people and use the feedback to make a better prototype on your way to an awesome final design.

Finishing – If your design doesn’t make it to the retailer, no one will be able to enjoy it. So you deliver accomplishable, intelligible, and complete documentation (perhaps not always on paper!) of the intended design while meeting the shared goals of the product team, then monitor implementation to ensure that the product comes out as it should.
Collaboration – You involve team members and real users in accomplishing your work, enticing others to participate in the above activities and ensuring that no one on the project team forgets about the people who will buy and love the product.

Our client is seeking insatiable curiosity regarding people and their capabilities and needs. Strong conceptualization skills with deep attention to detail and the demonstrated ability to convey the intricacies of a desired experience to business and technical audiences. Great aptitude designing and specifying product behavior, including on-screen, in-browser, packaged software, mobile app, and hardware-based interfaces. Skill in prototyping for conceptual development, testing, demonstration and documentation. The ability to organize and lead small and medium projects and to help others contribute to large ones. Excellent design communication abilities including wireframes, workflows, experience challenges and opportunities, presentations, and specification of dynamic information displays, animation, sound, and haptic feedback.

Your background will include a master’s degree in Interaction Design or similar field, or minimum a Bachelor’s degree in a relevant field (Psychology, Human Factors, Anthropology, HCI, etc.)

At least seven years’ hands-on experience designing great user experiences in online, software, mobile, and/or hardware products. You don’t have to be a graphic designer, but a certain amount of visual design survival skills are definitely needed. You don’t have to be an engineer, but the ability to make an HTML mock-up of a software interface or a rough physical mockup of a product is a definite plus.

You will learn something new or at least look at things differently every day. There are so many smart and creative people around that you’ll be motivated to pursue the ideal.

Please include a link to your portfolio.
