Our customer's UX Design team is looking for an experienced Senior UX designer to work as a strategic partner on design system and key initiatives with our technology and business teams. Our dream candidate is passionate about developing a better user experience using insights from real people. He or she has the proven skills and experience to turn these insights into beautifully-designed products (interactions and visuals), and to inspire our teams through prototypes and demonstrations before building final products

As the Senior UX Designer, you’ll take on complex challenges and transform them into intuitive, accessible and easy-to-use designs suited as much for the first-time user as the sophisticated expert. You’ll work closely with other Designers, as well as Researchers, Engineers and Product Owners throughout the design process – from creating early concepts and user flows to building user interface mock-ups and prototypes. At each stage, you’ll anticipate users’ needs and goals, advocate for them and, through close collaboration with the implementation team, ensure that the final product is delightful to use.

Job responsibilities of the UX Designer include:

  • Understand business goals, processes and requirements to maintain a design system
  • Lead the UX development of a design system
  • Conduct research and usability testing to support design system development
  • Create wireframes, functional specs, high-fidelity mock-ups and prototypes of various complexity
  • Review and act on client feedback and usage tracking reports
  • Facilitate communication between stakeholders
  • Attend and facilitate review meetings and demos
  • Provide weekly status reports on projects and proactively raise any issues or concerns as they arise
