  • Create low fidelity wireframes and prototypes that communicate clear interactions and experiences.
  • Establish a framework for synthesizing and distributing your research findings.
  • Effectively communicate conceptual ideas, prototypes and the specifics of user-centered design process to product, engineering, and key stakeholder

Requirements:

  • Solid understanding of user-centered design principles and data-driven design strategies for mobile and web applications.
  • Knowledge of best practices and platform specific design/UI patterns for mobile and web app platforms.
  • Fluency in user research fundamentals such as creating user groups, usability testing, interviews, online surveys, user personas, and journey mapping.

  • Knowledge of best practices for data collection.
  • Ability to prioritize your project work with your team, while being able to work collaboratively and independently.
  • Experience working in an agile development process.
  • Minimum of 5 years experience conducting UX research.
  • Examples that reflect your ability to conduct, organize and synthesize your research.

Desired Qualifications:

  • Solid understanding of user-centered design principles and data-driven design strategies for mobile and web applications.
  • Proficiency in leveraging Figma, ZeroHeight, the Adobe Creative Suite (XD), Miro (RealtimeBoard), Sketch, and Invision for wireframing, design comps, and prototypes.
