Sr. UX Strategist
Senior UX Strategist at Eight Bit Studios
So you want to make a big impact on a growing team that’s doing big things? Then we want to hear from you! YEAH, YOU!
At Eight Bit Studios, we specialize in mashing up User Experience, Design and Development in fun new ways. Our team is made up of hardworking and empathy-driven UX Strategists, Digital Product Designers, Developers, Product + Project Managers, and QA Analysts who care about delivering great work that we can all take pride in.
When you join Eight Bit, you will get a chance to collaborate with some of the nation’s most interesting business and product leaders. We take care to vet our client work so it aligns with our team and company goals. We're not talking about working with internal teams upon internal teams, we're talking about being on the ground floor, working with truly engaging people doing truly exciting things.
OK, so where do you fit in, you empathy seeker, you?
Eight Bit Studios is looking for an organized and collaborative Sr. UX Strategist to join our team. You must be able to work on site in Chicago and you must actually love what you do. We’re looking for a leader who is super adaptable and likes to live in the nexus of product and collaborate closely with other user experience strategists, product designers, and development pros to create incredible and inclusive digital products.
As a Sr. UX Strategist at Eight Bit, you believe that great user experience comes from effective communication and digging deep to understand the user, not just squares on a page. You’ve seen your best work created while working seamlessly with Design and Dev after thoughtful discovery. As a lifelong learner, you are eager to keep up with up-to-date and innovative research techniques. You’re able to annotate and explain design choices so that nothing - from user flows to personas - is a question mark. Through it all, you keep an open analytical mind, make data your bestie, and are always a champion of the user.
Are you still with us? Great, now here’s what this role is all about:
5+ years working in User Experience. Time at a tech consultancy experience gets you brownie points
You’ll feel in your element planning and facilitating a workshop with our internal team and our client partners
Planning and conducting user research is your jam. You’re comfortable gathering and using qualitative and quantitative data.
Creating clear and insightful user models like personas and customer journeys is almost as satisfying as watching people using them
Your empathy for the user helps you find creative and ethical solutions for clients
You feel good helping your team brainstorm ideas for new products and new features - but also helping them to say no and set priorities
Sketching, white boarding and prototyping are second nature to you at this point
You don’t need to create final visual designs yourself, but you view Product Designers as your other half
You're experienced in tools like Figma, Sketch, Invision, and Zeplin
And here’s why we think working at Eight Bit is all that and a bag of chips:
We recognize that the key to our ability to deliver on great digital products is tied to creating an inclusive environment where people can do their best work. We care a great deal about balancing our culture and work/life stuff so our life-friendly employee benefits package includes generous vacation time + plus holiday office closures, parental leave, and flexible work schedules along with super fun cultural activities, an open and supportive work environment, plus competitive compensation.
