Senior Product Designer (mobile first design required)

Atlanta, GA, Seattle, WA or Austin, TX

6-month contract to hire (full medical, dental & vision benefits offered)

 

At our client, they get UX; it’s baked into their DNA. We’re excited to expand the team as they drive new initiatives. As Senior Product Designer, you will work with, guide, and mentor other UX designers and researchers to conceive, influence, craft, and deliver effective end-to-end experiences across their external products and internal services. The Senior Product Designer is responsible for helping to organize and lead the envisioning, planning, delivery, maintenance, and continuous improvement of intuitive and quality products and services through collaboration with end users and modern software development teams. The Senior Product Designer will act as a mentor and peer leader to other User Experience Designers to help them grow and develop.

 

You are grounded and versed in Lean product methods and the core UX disciplines. You can guide, influence, and align diverse teams through the project lifecycle with your work products and outputs. You can defend your design recommendations and directions because they are informed by fundamental research: behavioral, contextual and/or other means of capturing information from or about users. You seek help from all sources: fellow UX professionals, product managers, business stakeholders, engineers, analysts, and project managers. Even as you believe design is best crafted from a single vision, you enjoy the collaborative effort, taking feedback & criticism as a means of improving the end results.
