Job Description:




Our client believes that digital technologies will bring forward a new era of entertainment products. We are pioneering new ways to deliver our premium content to customers while at the same time developing entirely new interactive storytelling experiences. The Digital Products division is responsible for the entire experience and technology stack that enables our customers to access programming wherever they are—on whatever device is at hand. Exploring this nexus of product, technology, and entertainment requires a staff of highly inventive and technically flexible software professionals across a variety of disciplines: development, program management, test, and design. We especially prize people who are knowledgeable, innovative, and motivated to create engaging and elegant digital entertainment experiences. We need expertise in platforms— such as smart phones, tablets, game consoles, and web—as well as a thoughtful approach to features and user-centric design philosophies.


Above all, we need people who can take their expertise and accomplish things that have never been done before —because that’s what we’re doing. This is a progressive company with great benefits, a lean management structure, and growth opportunities for talented individuals. Come help us make the best online experience in the world.


What you’ll do:

You will be an individual contributor working on product design and feature initiatives from concept to launch for our streaming and interactive experiences. Working closely with a multi-disciplinary design, engineering, content, and research team you’ll translate innovative concepts into living, breathing, and functional prototypes. Details are critical as you will iterate constantly on user interactions, animations, and pixel-perfect designs to deliver a premium user experience to our audience. You will collaborate closely with UX researchers to user-test new concepts and assist engineering with the final implementation. You will also help evaluate new tools and processes to continually improve the way the team works.


What we’re looking for:

We need prototypers that are the synthesis of UX design and development–who take into account business objectives, development concerns, user needs, experience principles, and industry best practices to inform decisions and deftly balance tactical implementation with big-picture strategic thinking. We love people with a deep understanding of software development processes, who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty with experience prototyping and development. Above all, we value experienced, self-aware and self-directed individuals, capable of being amazing team players, across design, engineering, and production. A portfolio demonstrating user-centric design thinking and execution, across multiple experience platforms (e.g. Mobile, Connected TV, Web/Desktop, etc.) is required.



Requirements:



• A minimum of 5+ years’ work experience in website and product application development and/or consulting.

• Bachelor’s degree in Design, Computer Science or related technical field or equivalent practical experience.

• Deep understanding of UX design principles and methodologies as they relate to software development.

• Highly capable in core design abilities, including composition and typography.

• Competency in existing and emerging interaction paradigms including touch, NUI, GUI, VR, AR, and the Internet of Things

• Expertise in modern UX prototyping tools, including Sketch, Framer, Form, Swift

• Ability to prototype in HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript.

• Experience with Object Oriented JavaScript and modern JavaScript libraries (e.g., Closure, jQuery, Node.)

• Experience with vector and motion graphics, including SVG, HTML5 Canvas, and Animation via JavaScript and CSS.

• Experience with development for mobile platforms.

• Experience with development in Unity and Unreal Engine a plus.
