If you love solving problems through an intensely collaborative design process with both clients and colleagues — and can communicate those ideas clearly — you may be our ideal candidate.

  • Design solutions that incorporate current best practices in usability, interaction design, accessibility, and customer service systems
  • Construct compelling narratives for product owner presentations that showcase new products and features to targeted audiences
  • Collaborate with client designers, stakeholders, and developers to build consensus and support
  • Create deliverables from scratch, including sketches, wireframes, workflow diagrams, requirements documentation, user research, usability testing scripts, and discussion guides
  • Conduct needs analyses by synthesizing client discussions, system assessments, user data, and market research
  • Lead UX research and usability testing sessions
  • Direct the team’s effort and track their progress through tools such as Kanban-style boards, ticketing systems, etc.
  • Stay up-to-date on current best practices, trends, and technologies in user experience design

Requirements

  • Minimum of 5 years of proven experience in the UX design field
  • Experience leading projects and teams focused on UX design and research
  • Extreme attention to detail with a focus on efficiency
  • Proven ability to drive project work streams and deliverables with little to no oversight
  • Proven ability to clearly communicate design ideas to team members and clients in live presentations
  • Exceptional client relationship and consulting skills
  • Working knowledge of tools and applications that support UX deliverables, such as wireframes, prototypes, data visualization, and flowcharts
  • Solid understanding of front-end development and technology
  • Familiarity with designing for accessibility

This is a remote position, but please note that candidates are expected to operate within Eastern Standard Time Zone business hours.
