Description

Join the TrainingPeaks team and help athletes and coaches achieve their best!

Who We Are

Our products include TrainingPeaks.com Athlete and Coach Edition, WKO+ desktop software for cutting-edge scientific analysis and planning, and the TrainingPeaks mobile apps for iOS and Android.

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.

  • 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

  • Knowledge of best practices and platform specific design/UI patterns for mobile and web app platforms

  • 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

How does your team reward individual success?
