UX Designer (Game)

| Greater LA Area

Launched from the sunny beaches of Long Beach, CA with offices in NYC, London, and Rio de Janeiro, the Zwift community is active in 195 countries (yup - more countries than the United Nations) and growing. We're endlessly positive, relentlessly inventive, and always looking to improve… wanna join?

Who we are seeking

Zwift is looking for an experienced and creative game focused UX Designer to join our Game Design team. In this role, you'll be defining and designing important components of the game from onboarding to motivational training and community building. 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!

 

What you'll do

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

 

Bonus Level

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)

 

Top reasons we think you'll love it here:

Great Employee Fitness Program… earn a bike!

Amazing office location in downtown Long Beach with spectacular views

Competitive Benefits (including Medical, Dental, and Vision)

Awesome team of talented individuals that love what they do

Did we mention that we ride bikes and run at work?
