You will collaborate with fellow UX Designers, UI Designers, Game Designers, and Game Developers to tackle challenges unique to a fitness-driven game that crosses multiple platforms. You'll have an organized approach to bringing well thought through experiences to life, prioritizing research and data, in conjunction with development and server capabilities. If you've got a penchant for running, cycling, triathlons, or other forms of fitness, that's a huge plus!

Design and create wireframes, workflows, prototypes, and sketches to communicate concepts
Drive research initiatives to get to the bottom of a perceived need or proposed feature
Collaborate with UX, UI, and Game Designers to strategize and define key product or feature specifications
Help imagine and define the Zwift user journey while keeping our goals and our users' goals in mind
Act as a Zwifter advocate to ensure the highest level of usability in everything you create
What you'll bring
Outstanding portfolio of game UX Design examples or case studies that demonstrate your critical thinking skills
5+ years of UX Design experience working on shipped games (fitness, or physical/digital interaction game experience is a plus)
Solid understanding of user-centered design, research and testing
Working knowledge of design tools such as Sketch, Photoshop, and Illustrator
Experience with prototyping tools such as Invision
Comfortable both providing and receiving objective feedback, and eager to problem solve collaboratively
Proven ability to prioritize project tasks and raise questions when ambiguity arises
Enthusiasm in joining a fun, energetic team with a variety of personalities
Interested in cycling, running, triathlons, or other fitness activities (regular use of Zwift is a must to ensure you're creating the best experience possible for our Zwifters)
