The ideal candidate loves to visualize an experience in the abstract, dive into customer research and data, break down complex use cases, and then drive the vision into deliverables that masterfully combine detail and storytelling.

Responsibilities:
  • Create world-class, user-centered designs through consideration of market research, business requirements, customer feedback, and usability study findings.
  • Quickly and thoroughly create diagrams, wireframes, detailed visual mockups and prototypes to communicate high-level design strategies and detailed interaction behaviors.
  • Practice user-centered design by participating in user research and incorporating data, customer feedback, and technical constraints/opportunities.

  • Design the information architecture, interface, and interaction flow of the web and mobile e-commerce experience.
  • Direct the visual design of the web and mobile applications.

  • 6+ years of experience as a product designer, user experience designer, interaction designer, information architect, or similar role.
  • Bachelor’s degree in design, human-centered design (HCD) or human-computer interaction (HCI), or 5+ years equivalent professional experience.
  • Fluency in best practices for web-based information architecture and design, as well as strong knowledge of usability principles and techniques.
  • Excellent communication, presentation, and storytelling skills.
  • Experience working in a collaborative multi-disciplinary team to ship products for mobile and desktop.
  • Experience with a variety of design tools including Photoshop, Sketch, Axure, Flinto, and Invision.
