Overview

Calling creative and innovative product designers! Join the Location Analytics team in our R&D division and work with product managers, engineers, and user researchers to capture project design requirements. You’ll work alongside team members to design how users interact with our software products. Designers are expected to design user flows all the way down to the fine details, including exception handling and individual UI widgets, working with guidance and feedback from product owners and team leads.

 

Responsibilities:

  • Create information architecture diagrams, user experience workflow diagrams, wireframes, proof-of-concepts, and interactive prototypes

  • Manage a large body of work in a fast-paced environment

Requirements

  • Demonstrated experience designing software product UX in an iterative development environment 
  • Experience identifying solutions that are outside of the obvious design space
  • Ability to clearly and succinctly present UX design concepts and explain UX design thinking to non-design stakeholders 
  • You’ve worked as part of a highly collaborative team; you listen effectively, respect others’ perspectives and contributions, and offer and accept feedback openly
  • Outstanding verbal and written presentation and facilitation skills, with the ability to quickly adapt the content to the audience
  • Organized, able to think beyond what is asked for, and able to juggle multiple projects and competing priorities in a fast-paced, often evolving environment (even if it’s always sunny outside)
  • Stay up to date with new web design trends and technologies
  • Solid knowledge of the requirements of the creative process including typical time and resources needed to produce quality work with efficiency on time and to specification
  • 4+ years of experience as a user experience designer working on software products
  • Portfolio of UX design work demonstrating expertise with a wide range of UX design techniques
  • Bachelor’s or master’s in human computer interaction, computer science, or related field, depending on position level

 

Recommended Qualifications:

 

  • Background in software engineering to include writing code as part for your career, hobbies, or education
