What You'll Do

  • You will leverage an iterative, user-centered approach and solid UI design skills to conceive and deliver valuable new experiences for our clients and colleagues across mobile and web platforms.

  • An essential member of our Design & Innovation team, you contribute to all aspects of our process, from research and ideation to delivery with a focus on prototyping and creatively approaching constraints. Because our work spans from early research to executing ideas, you need to be able to think both conceptually and pragmatically about solutions.

  • You will pair up with product managers, developers, and solution architects to determine what is should feel like to interact with a product or service across multiple touch points, help clarify what will be most critical to the success of a product, and define how we make those concepts real. You will constantly be looking to learn new tools and technologies to deepen your craft.

You will advise the team on what will create a highly engaging and intuitive user experience and be the voice for how design decisions will impact realization of product vision.

  • You will design and deliver best practice user research, including helping the Product Manager frame key questions, create research plans to address those, conduct activities, and synthesize the findings into meaningful, actionable insights. You will provide hands-on craftsmanship of the UI and you will push the boundaries with what's possible in partnership with technologists and product stakeholders.

  • You will lead the creation of prototypes that help communicate and validate the optimal user flow, interaction model, and screen designs. You will also lead the creation of wireframes and mockups for UI (web and mobile) that the team can use to create stories and that developers can translate into code. You will collaborate with software developers and architects to review, iterate and refine product design during development cycles.
