Agent: Vincent S.

Job #: 129068

Salary: 100-120K

Job Description

As a User Experience Designer, you are a maker, and a doer. You have a mastery of interaction design, and a strong understanding of information architecture, as you will be in charge of the architectural integrity, and look and feel of the applications and web properties that you work on. You also are familiar and practiced with user research methods: you maintain an organized, data-informed sense of your end user through discovery and design. You are able to react effectively to findings from research in order to enhance usability and overall product quality. You are entrepreneurial. You can work independently, self manage, and find ways and means to support our goals. You are adaptable. You are service-oriented, but you are an advocate. Your ability to persuade stakeholders to act in favor of brand-aligned,  user-centric design, and to demonstrate the impact of these decisions, will be highly valued.

  • Design of information architecture, wireframes and compelling user interfaces
  • Generation of comprehensive, consistent and usable UI solutions to help users meet their needs
  • Development of interaction prototypes, specifications and other design documents to communicate design ideas to project teams
  • Analysis of business and technical requirements
  • Creation of user personas and other methodologies for defining target audience, and user needs
  • Creation of user journeys and flows to capture current and future states of user pathways
  • Forming and maintaining solid relationships with project team members and stakeholders
  • Lead user testing and stakeholder reviews to validate the efficacy of these solutions
  • Translate research findings into tangible designs
  • Coordinate with project management and design team to ensure timely delivery of design artifacts
  • Help foster and contribute to our design process and quality standards with proven design approaches based on objective, data-driven evidence



  • A portfolio of your work included in your application.
  • BA in a related field (computer science, interaction design, HCI, industrial design, information science, social sciences, graphic design, etc.) and/or equivalent years of successful work experience
  • 5+ years of professional experience as an Information Architect, User Experience, or Interaction Designer
  • Experience in designing for large operational applications, mobile apps, and immersive, content rich websites
  • Fluency in industry standard design and prototyping tools
  • Broad knowledge of digital interaction design patterns, Web site architecture, user interfaces and navigation on various platforms (Web, mobile, tablet)
  • A solid understanding of web and mobile design principles and best use of current web and mobile technologies and scalable dynamic user interfaces
  • Familiarity with technical issues around web development and ability to work constructively with development teams, including but not limited to understanding of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, JQuery
  • Familiarity working with front-end coding technologies and data modeling is a big plus
