We are looking for a talented and creative User Experience design lead. You will be tasked with producing a compelling and intuitive user experience for an existing web application. You should be a problem solver – able to anticipate potential problems with proposed designs and motivated to resolve them.  One of the most important aspects of this role is that you will be an advisor or “go-to” person for UX developers.

 

Experience with web-based applications and a familiarity with mobile design principles (Android, iOS) is a necessity, as is the ability to turn wireframes and technical notes into high-end designs.  You must have experience in designing and developing the building blocks for a good UI that can be used throughout an application. You will need hands-on knowledge of various design tools, such as Google Material Design, Photoshop, Balsamiq and wire-framing packages. You should have a well-developed portfolio to show off your work.

Principal Responsibilities

  • Create interaction models, user task flows, screen designs, and a UI toolbox that promote ease-of-use and regulatory compliance (Section 508/WCAG)
  • Establish, maintain, and enforce UI standards throughout application
  • Participate in design reviews and provide input throughout the creative process for the work of your teammates
  • Conceptualize new and improved user interfaces, starting from requirements gathered by Product Owners and Architects
  • Help conduct UX research to hone product performance as seen through the lens of its users
  • Produce low fidelity wireframes or mock ups of those concepts
  • Quickly develop functional prototypes to demonstrate concepts and support iterative usability reviews
  • Partner with software architects and developers to ensure that prototyping techniques and technologies translate to web-based solution (or even better: produce standards-compliant front end code using HTML, CSS, Javascript, AJAX, and other related browser-based UI frameworks such as jQuery, YUI, Ext JS)
  • Present complex sets of data in ways that are easy to comprehend

Position Requirements

  • Excitement for new UX design and development trends and the technologies that enable them
  • Well-versed in fundamental visual and interactive design principals
  • Experience creating wireframes, site and system flows, prototypes, etc.
  • Ability to translate high-lever user requirements into design solutions
  • 5+ years’ experience with graphic design and prototyping tools: Google Material Design, Abobe Photoshop, Paint.NET, Balsamiq, or similar preferred
  • Comfortable with an iterative design process that includes accepting and managing feedback and constructive criticism
  • Knowledge and understanding of web accessibility guidelines and Section 508 compliance
  • Knowledge of HTML, CSS, and Javascript

Desirable Skills

  • Knowledge of Javascript frameworks like jQuery, YUI, Dojo, etc.
  • Experience with web-based and mobile applications
