Lead User Experience Designer


We're looking for a hands-on, creative, energetic, and collaborative Lead UX Designer to play a pivotal role in defining the future of one of most critical workplace products.


Our ideal candidate is self-motivated, comfortable working in a fast-paced environment, has well-rounded design and communication skills, and can help move a team through ambiguity while keeping it enjoyable. You'll be responsible for driving the entire design lifecycle from rough concept through to final design in partnership with the Product Management team.


The team is agile, fast-paced, entrepreneurial, and highly collaborative. You'll be at the forefront of our efforts to design the next generation of our workplace product experiences, working under the direction of the UX Director, and in partnership with the Product owner, Technology teams and Solution Delivery.


Experience in or awareness of the Healthcare industry, agile/scrum teams, product management is serious plus, but not required.


WHAT YOU'LL DO:


- Lead and motivate a cross-functional design team on both strategic visioning and tactical delivery projects. Our team includes user research, content strategy, visual design, and front-end development; the ability to communicate clearly and effectively across these disciplines is key.


- Direct the design team's efforts toward a standard of excellence in sync with the client's business goals, expectations, and budget.


- Manage the day-to-day working relationship with the Product owner (client management "soft skills" are a must), exchanging ideas, communicating progress, and handling shifting priorities.


HOW YOU'LL DO IT


- By inspiring the team to dig into customer needs, motivations, and behaviors, and then translate these into engaging digital experiences that push the boundaries of how we solve user problems.


- By recognizing and articulating the difference between a good customer experience and a bad one. You'll give your views to the team, invite others to share their thoughts, and drive the process toward the best solution.


- By leading design sessions and workshops with cross-functional teams. You'll set session agendas, keep conversations flowing and focused, and communicate visually. The whiteboard is your friend and confidant.


- Through the use of Axure, Invision, Photoshop, Illustrator, Sketch, Sharpie and paper to create wireframes, journey maps, concept maps, clickable prototypes, and other visual storytelling assets.


- By communicating clearly and transparently


WHO YOU ARE


- You have 8+ years of experience as an information architect, interaction designer, experience designer, product designer or a similar role.


- You use Lean and Agile practices to move swiftly


- You have a knowledge of and passion for the latest in mobile technologies and design trends.


- You have trust and compassion for those around you, and understand that successful design means you can't design without them.


- You can let go of things outside of your control.


- You've got a sense of humor.


- You enjoy collaboration, and are self-aware enough to know when you need quiet space.


- You have a passion for the power of strategic design and have a positive, "anything's possible" mindset.


- You're a team player, and accountable for your part, confident with your skill, experience, and expertise.


- You're comfortable leading a design session from the front of a room or over the phone.


- You can work within a structured design system, but know when that system needs to be bent or broken.


- You're curious.


- You're self-directed and process-driven, comfortable enough to "go with the flow" when needed to tackle shifting priorities and deadlines.


- You're not cynical, inflexible, or only about your portfolio.


- You're a leader.


- You love being part of something bigger.
