Are you a gifted all-arounder (a “full-stack” designer) who has an especial knack and/or background in UX and visual design? And do you thrill to the thought of getting someone else’s brilliant ideas across the finish line with more panache than they’d even imagined? If so, you’ll want to take a close look at this gig, especially since it happens to be with a very sharp company that’s bringing value to its clients in some really impressive new ways, and needs someone just like you to help it continue exceeding expectations.
Concept to experience. That’s your spot along the chain gang, where you’ll put your considerable UX chops to work. Yes, we’re talking about user flows, sketching, wireframing, prototyping, user research — all those practices that get those endorphins running in your brain. You’ll be working on agile teams, of course, and you’ll specialize in translating ideas from testing and research into the actual user experience and, eventually, product. You’ll frequently interface with clients, and you’ll be asked to weigh in on the team’s processes, something that’s always under the microscope at this innovation-first company.
Expect to collaborate, big-time, with multidisciplinary strategists, technologists and creatives, as you pull out all the stops to deliver for a by-God who’s-who of clients. As you find your way into this job, you’ll begin to extend yourself in a direction that’s natural for you: Are you a visual specialist? A gifted product manager? This company wants you to find your UX niche and own it, because it understands that incredible work gets done when you give people the space to follow their stars.
Hired Gun Proﬁle
So, yeah, you’ve been working in UX/UI for more than five years now, you’ve got a fine and varied portfolio to show for your work, and you have as good a handle as anybody on best practices and technical prowess — but let’s talk about what lies at the root of it all: It’s your empathy, isn’t it? That very human desire to understand other people and use that understanding to make their lives easier? That’s what informed your decision to enter the field, and it’s what continues to inform your choices as you work on products. Over time, you’ve come to understand the need to balance that impulse with the need to think commercially, and at this point you’re exceedingly adept at walking that line.
You’re a natural collaborator and problem-solver who loves working with others to create beautiful and useful things. You listen well but don’t shy away from sharing your own point of view, especially as concerns practices, workflows and processes — if you can see a better way of doing something, you share it, and everybody’s happy. You’re good at navigating ambiguity because you don’t mind asking questions or taking assertive action. And you also happen to be in possession of a fine set of communication skills, which stands you in good stead when it comes to explaining your design choices to your team, to clients and to other stakeholders.
Adobe Creative Suite? Sketch? Figma, InVision, Marvel, Framer, Axure? MS Office? G Suite? Hell, you could teach courses on ‘em if you’d a mind to.
Yes, it’s a UX gig, and yes, we’re looking for someone with UX deep in their heart — but experience in related fields such as product management or software development would actually be a plus.
How do you say “nah” to a gig with a cutting-edge, opportunity-rich company that only wants you to follow your passion, create your niche and build wonderful products?
