Who You Are

As Senior UX Designer, you will conduct qualitative and quantitative research to help us better understand our audience and their needs. Using that data, you will apply creative and innovative user-centered solutions that will provide the backbone for an intuitive and compelling user experience. You will know when to follow best practice and when to veer off and pave your own way. You’re an independent thinker who first asks “why” and loves getting into the weeds of a problem.

Core Responsibilities:

  • Work directly with Product Managers to define user problems
  • Work directly with other members of the UX team to formulate our data collection approach and strategy

  • Explore several diverse approaches and validate the right solution with prototypes, validation testing and quantitative/qualitative customer research
  • Create low fidelity wireframes and prototypes that communicate clear interactions and experiences
  • Establish a framework for synthesizing and distributing your research findings
  • Effectively communicate conceptual ideas, prototypes and the specifics of user-centered design process to product, engineering, and key stakeholders
  • Perform other duties as assigned

Requirements

Required Qualifications

  • Solid understanding of user-centered design principles and data-driven design strategies for mobile and web applications
  • Knowledge of best practices and platform specific design/UI patterns for mobile and web app platforms
  • Fluency in user research fundamentals such as creating user groups, usability testing, interviews, online surveys, user personas, and journey mapping
  • Fluency in user experience design fundamentals such as wireframes, prototypes, mockups and design best practices
  • Effective collaboration across the team disciplines, including Product Manager, UX and UI Designers, Director of UX, Front End Developers and Engineers
  • A solid understanding of usability and heuristics
  • Knowledge of best practices for data collection
  • Ability to prioritize your project work with your team, while being able to work collaboratively and independently
  • Experience working in an agile development process
  • Minimum of 5 years experience conducting UX research
  • Examples that reflect your ability to conduct, organize and synthesize your research

Desired Qualifications

  • Solid understanding of user-centered design principles and data-driven design strategies for mobile and web applications
  • Proficiency in leveraging the Adobe Creative Suite (XD), Miro (RealtimeBoard), Sketch, and Invision for wireframing, design comps, and prototypes
  • Training in visual design with an appreciation of design principles (layout, typography, color theory, composition)
  • Experience in designing SaaS products
  • The ability and desire to contribute to the growth of the UX Team by providing guidance and mentorship

Benefits

Benefits and Perks Include

  • 100% company paid medical plan for employees with buy-up options as well as dental and vision insurance for employees (dependent coverage available)
  • 401(k) 5% match
  • $1,200/year fitness reimbursement to purchase any items related to healthy living
