Job Description

UX and UI Designer 

We are looking for an outstanding User Interface / Experience Designer to join our Product Management Team. In this role, the User Interface / Experience Designer will work with the Product Manager, Creative Director and Designers, Engineers and Customers to create an intuitive and cohesive look, feel and overall user experience for the our digital platform. The ideal candidate is a brilliant problem solver, quick study, self starter and excellent communicator who possesses a passion for great user experience and the ability to achieve it. 

Responsibilities: 

  •  First and foremost, you should have an excellent eye for design. You should know great web UI when you see it, and be able to explain why it's great (even if you didn't create it!). 
  •  You'll need to be a Photoshop ninja and fluent in Illustrator. You must also know your way around OmniGraffle, Visio or whatever you use to create wireframes. 
  •  You should have at least a working knowledge of XHTML/CSS. If you can cutup your own comps, so much the better. 
  •  Of course, we're looking for self-starters - candidates who can jump in quickly without a lot of direction, and learn by asking the right questions. 
  •  5-7+ years of experience designing user experiences and interaction design. In addition to web app experience, the ideal candidate will also have experience designing UI for mobile apps for tablets and smartphones, and deep familiarity with the iOS and Android SDKs. 
  •  Design clean, fresh and current user interfaces regardless of device (mobile/desktop/tablet/etc.). 
  •  The ability to quickly grasp and distill highly complex user design issues into clean, understandable solutions. 
  •  Be able to speak the language of back-end engineers, internal business clients and our customers. 
  •  Assist with user research and data collection as needed (user testing, site heat maps, site metrics via Omniture, Google Analytics, etc.) to guide design and performance improvements. 
  •  You flourish in a fast paced, iterative, deadline driven environment, and know your way around project management, including juggling multiple parts of a project and keeping up to date with all the moving parts. 
  •  Strong communication and organizational skills are critical to success among this company of talented individuals. 



Qualifications

Skills and Experience: 

  •  Bachelor’s degree in a related field
