WHAT YOU’LL DO:

  • Lead research activities to better understand usage patterns and user requirements of the system
  • Run meetings and discussions to gain understanding and consensus across the company
  • Develop prototypes and incorporate feedback in order to build out new features and improve existing functionality
  • Create thorough designs when a high level of fidelity is needed
  • Collaborate with engineering while they implement your concepts
  • Gain trust of others within the company as you adapt processes and tools that they use daily

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • 2+ years of professional experience in UX design
  • Strong communication skills
  • Proven understanding of user-centered design principles
  • Experience conducting various research techniques to gain insight about usability
  • Thorough experience developing prototypes at varying levels of fidelity (sketches, wireframes, high-fidelity mockups, etc) and working with others to test them
