Position Details:
At Grainger we keep the world working, and the Grainger Technology Group is an especially exciting place to be. We are creating and building systems to keep Grainger a strong Fortune 500 company and one of the Top 100 Places to Work, and to extend our market leadership for the next 100 years.
An important part of Grainger is our KeepStock inventory management service, which we are reinventing to guarantee a best-in-class experience bringing the greatest value possible to our customers. We are looking for a Senior User Experience Designer to help create experiences for KeepStock's web, mobile, and vending device platforms as a part of this growing team of diverse and geographically dispersed professionals.
As a Senior User Experience Designer, you will use interaction design skills to plan and reshape elements of the KeepStock ecosystem, a suite of custom enterprise tools that allow our field teams to drive exceptional customer experiences. This is a full-spectrum UX design role - from research and solution design to workflows and testing - with an emphasis on team collaboration. While a facility for visual design and understanding of front-end development will undoubtedly be useful, they will not comprise the majority of work in this role.
This is a unique opportunity to employ high-tech software and service design within a top rated, well-established industrial supplier. The role reports to the Senior Manager of UX Design for KeepStock.
You Will:
  • Work with Product Managers, Engineers, Architects, QA, and other members of the UX team to design experiences for customers and Grainger's internal users
  • Collaborate with other UX and UI Designers to align patterns and priorities
  • Facilitate discussions with users and team members to determine experience needs
  • Create early-stage concepts to facilitate discussion, feedback, and agreement
  • Translate requirements and user needs into tangible interaction designs through detailed user flows and annotated wireframes
  • Understand technical and business constraints and scale designs for iterative release, ensuring user needs are met in each iteration
  • Evaluate current experiences and provide recommendations for improvement
  • Communicate design decisions, rationale, and direction when presenting work
  • Develop detailed documentation for design standards
  • Plan and conduct user research, user testing and secondary research

You Have:
  • 3+ years of UX experience working with an Agile product team; enterprise B2B experience preferred
  • Formal education in Human Centered Design, Design Methods, Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) or related field, or equivalent experience
  • Experience designing and solving problems for complex business processes
  • An understanding of design, usability, and research principles and best practices
  • Proficiency in a selection of common wireframing, design, and testing tools
  • Experience designing for native mobile (iOS and Android) solutions
  • Experience using and contributing to pattern libraries and design systems
  • Facilitation and collaboration skills
  • Experience designing for responsive web solutions
  • Work samples that show how you break down complexity, empathize with the user, and balance user needs, requirements, and technical considerations
  • Prior experience with eCommerce, inventory management, or physical product UI are ideal
