Who You Are

As UX Designer, you will conduct qualitative and quantitative research to help us better understand our audience and their needs.

  • 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

  • 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
