What do you get when you cross a UX pro with a product owner and a team leader and a strategist and a client partner? You get what this white-hot digital-media house calls an “experience director,” someone who infuses projects with their own enthusiasm, aesthetic, energy and drive. If you’re in the least ho-hum about your work, this one isn’t for you, but if you’re truly jazzed about helping clients achieve their goals by pushing hard at every facet of a digital project, then we really want to have a talk with you.
First of all, we hope you don’t have a thing for tater tots, because small potatoes are off the menu. You’ll handle only the most innovative and complex projects for web, in-store, mobile, social and tablet, overseeing them from start to finish. The interdisciplinary teams working under you will contribute to every phase of the work: strategy, research, product definition, interaction design.
A very big part of your job will involve leveraging your leadership skill to rally the troops, to relentlessly push for excellence, to mentor, to encourage talent, to foster innovation, and to generally make sure that every product and project you work on is touched by a certain magic. You’ll carry that same burning enthusiasm with you into your interactions with some very senior clients, and you’ll naturally let it spill over into business development and thinking about new products.
Hired Gun Proﬁle
Someone admiring your resume might well remark that you’ve already seen and done it all in your career. You’ve been instrumental in creating and launching large-scale websites, clever interfaces and game-changing applications. You’ve managed teams. And you’ve interacted closely with big, important clients, including when things have gone less than swimmingly.
Along the way, you’ve proven yourself to be a committed collaborator while remaining a person of sound, independent judgment, the kind of team player who’s open-minded enough to listen carefully to feedback but is sober enough to avoid groupthink. And while we’ve already mentioned the enthusiasm a couple of times, we’ll flog it one last time here: Honestly, we want somebody who’s eager to burst through the door on Monday morning because they’re thrilled to be doing what they do.
Be ready to discuss your sense of what clients need and want, and how you come by that understanding.
