  • Conduct design research using methods including, but not limited to—1×1 stakeholder interviews, survey design and distribution, focus groups, user testing
  • Generate rich insights informed by quantitative and qualitative data
  • Craft compelling presentations to present concepts with clarity to senior and executive-level clients

Project Ideation and Strategy (25%)

  • Come up with original concepts, scopes of work, and creative approaches to achieving client goals for new projects and proposals
  • Collaborate with two Project Managers and one Project Coordinator on the team to identify project needs and determine solutions
  • Lead or advise during the strategy phase to create project vision and execution plans
  • Run post-project reviews and synthesize lessons learned to integrate into future projects and best practices


Perks + Benefits:

  • Medical, dental, and vision insurance with FSA options
