Senior E-Comm UX Designer

Remote / Contract (40 hours/week, 3+ months)

The role:

We are looking for a Senior UX Designer to join a small team of elite creatives at a top-tier consumer electronics brand (named one of Fortune’s Best Places to Work in 2021!). In this role, you’ll collaborate with product managers and engineering teams to create meaningful and cohesive subscription and e-commerce experiences through a deep understanding of our customers and exceptional design execution. 

The ideal candidate is an all-around ace digital designer with both interaction and visual design skills. You should have a passion for empathizing with the needs and behaviors of our customers and want to create an exceptional digital experience at every turn.

What you’ll do

  • Create end-to-end conversion funnel designs for subscription and e-commerce experiences based on business goals and customer feedback that are simple, elegant, delightful, and valuable to our customers.
  • Design and optimize interfaces for all aspects of purchasing and managing subscription-based products for Android, Apple, and responsive web platforms. 
  • Deal in both the fast and thoughtful. You will develop and execute experiments as quickly as possible with crisp execution, balancing speed with velocity to impact A/B tests for in-app and responsive web platforms. 
  • Articulate user journeys with scenarios, storyboards, and presentations, low- and high-fidelity mocks, detailed interaction specs, and prototypes to effectively communicate interaction and design ideas. 
  • Bring the essential mix of strategic and empathetic thinking to the table, always thinking about what’s going to contribute to statistical significance. 
  • Advocate for the user and will push back against a pendulum that’s swinging too far away from what’s in the best interests of users. 
  • Influence the product vision and strategy through storytelling, analytics, and framing problems for a diverse audience of stakeholders and executives, helping them envision the opportunities. 
  • Set an example and create opportunities to foster collaborative cross-discipline dynamics. 
  • Write clear, compelling copy to support your designs.

About you

  • 5+ years designing and shipping software design experiences end-to-end.
  • Bachelor or Master Degree in the study of Design including one of the following; Design, Information Architecture, Human Factors or equivalent project/portfolio experience. 
  • Proven track record of shipping high-quality products and interactive experiences for iOS, Android, and responsive web platforms. 
  • You know high-quality design might not mean that it’s perfectly polished, but rather that it has enough polish to get you to the next phase (when the objective is to learn but not to ship).
  • Experience designing for groups of people, including international audiences, multi-language localization, accessibility for people with disabilities, etc.
  • Creative and scrappy mindset. You will figure out what a user will need to be successful and then look to see if we have tools that are already available, or if we need to make something new. 
  • Experience with UX Research to amplify design impact. 
  • You enjoy working in dynamic teams and are adept at conveying conceptual ideas as well as detailed designs. 
  • You have a clear, concise and transparent communication style. 
  • You are self-motivated and see ambiguity as an opportunity. 
  • Complete UX skillset: workshop facilitation, identifying customer problem statements, problem discovery, solution generation, concept creation, wireframing, testing, synthesis, iteration, prototyping, heuristic evaluation, competitive analysis, customer journey mapping, applying design systems, and producing deliverables for development. 
  • Bonus points for:
    • Experience in working with interfaces that span hardware, and/or IoT. 
    • Experience working in distributed teams and understand how to be most effective when you can’t always be in the same room as your collaborators.
