Talk about a chance to win some cred — here’s a gig with the legendary outfit that made UX a thing to begin with, and believe us, they haven’t been resting on their laurels. They’re still innovating and have tons of new clients to keep you busy and fulfilled. In this case, they’re looking for a mid-level UXer with broad experience and a passion to take their game to the next level. Sound like anybody you know?
You’ll start out focusing your work on a single client (in the educational field), designing across the entire system, not just within a single section. You’re going to be taking all that stuff you’ve learned about how people interact with information, with visual cues, with tools, and smartly turn it into new ways of making life easier for them. And speaking of making people’s lives easier, you’ll deliver very precise, top-shelf, neatly annotated wireframes that anyone can look at and make sense of, hugely facilitating the product-building effort. Some of the information you’ll need to design around will be quite complex, but you’ll naturally find ways of categorizing, synthesizing and deeply understanding it so that you can design solutions that people will look at afterward and say, “Oh, yeah — of course!”
Hired Gun Proﬁle
That seeming inevitability of your design is a hallmark of your work — hard-earned after many years of shaping increasingly elegant solutions to increasingly complex design problems (many of which solutions you’re ready to boast of when called upon). While you may have done a smattering of work on the client side, the bulk of your experience is agency-based.
You relish every phase of the UX journey, from gathering parameters to sketching and brainstorming, to wireframing, to testing, to rollout. You’re highly collaborative. You listen. And you’re a careful, deliberate communicator.
Some of what you’ll be doing is designing text-and-content-heavy pages, so editorial experience is going to be a huge plus here.
This is a great opportunity for a consummate UX pro who wants to up the ante with some interesting work at a company that shares your values.
