User Experience (UX) Manager
What you’ll do:
Our small but talented UX team demonstrates a strong practical knowledge of user-centered methodologies, usability principles, and mobile-first design. You’ll partner with product managers, engineers, and stakeholders to create software solutions that are beautiful, intuitive, and useful. You’ll be the authority on interaction design best practices and will be the one-stop-shop for information architecture and visual design solutions.
A day in the life:
You’ll support multiple Agile sprint teams to achieve business goals through custom software development. Projects includes reimagining the web application our over 40,000 independent consultants rely on to run their businesses, optimizing search and checkout of our consumer website, and innovating technology solutions to best support virtual parties.
You’ll optimize information architecture to promote usability while accommodating technical and business constraints. You’ll collaborate with our UX Researcher to combine qualitative and quantitative findings with insights from cross-functional teams, and rapidly iterate on solutions. Your recommendations will take the form of landscape analysis, storyboards, user flows, wireframes and high-fidelity prototypes.
You'll guide and grow other UX team members in their careers.
