  • Validate designs to determine whether planned changes will meet market, client, and user needs
  • Participate in the prioritization and selection of development tasks
  • Collaborate with engineers to solve problems and resolve nuanced implementation and customer adoption issues
  • Present new solutions to internal teams and clients
  • After features and products are built, verify that features achieved design goals
  • Collaborate with others in the development of appropriate rollout materials and product announcements

Requirements

  • Experience in identifying information and data needed to understand a problem and specify a solution
  • Experience in designing software features and products intended to be used for more than 3 years
  • Experience observing the impact of software features and products on users and organizations (e.g. through usability testing, post-rollout feedback, key performance indicator tracking, etc.)
  • Ability to understand and discuss cost-benefit tradeoffs as they relate to design choices
  • Experience working with clients, engineers, and other functional groups to define problems
  • Experience working with software developers on the implementation of designs
  • Thorough understanding of interaction design principles, either from formal education or professional practice
  • Proficiency with software tools used to specify and communicate solutions (e.g. Adobe Creative Suite, Balsamiq, InVision, Visio, etc.)
  • Strong aesthetic sense and understanding of information design and data visualization principles is a plus
  • Degree or certificate related to User Experience Design, Human-Computer Interaction, Visual Design, Product Management, Computer Science, or a related program is a plus
  • Familiarity with online marketing channels (e.g. search engine marketing, display, social, shopping) is a plus
  • Bachelor’s degree required
