We must be doing something right, because business is booming! We?re looking for the perfect mix of Visual/UI Designer and Information Architect; someone who enjoys making boxes and arrows as much as polished PSDs would be ideal! You?ll spend the majority of time translating highly complex, technical workflows into a web based application experience that users will love. This position requires someone who can design and implement world class user experiences in a fast paced environment. Core competencies include sketching, wire framing, creating user flows, user testing and visual design. The ideal candidate will have a clean, cutting edge design style to add the final polish to the product as they shepherd projects across the finish line.
As a User Experience Architect/Designer you will:
Produce user flows, wireframes, prototypes, user interface specifications, and final design deliverables. Our projects are currently about 70% information architecture and the rest UI/UX Design.
This is not a managerial position but we do want someone who can lead a UX project from concept through completion. Position requires a 'roll up the sleeves' attitude and ability to work independently as well as with teams.
Create the design principles Skytap will use for designing and implementing the user experience and associated UI framework and assets for our enterprise-level premier solution: Skytap Cloud.
Drive user experience research and testing sessions for their projects to validate designs and gather customer feedback.
Develop and maintain design guidelines, patterns, and libraries.
Build strong internal relationships with an experienced engineering team to produce optimal design/implementation solutions.
Measure and analyze customer and feature usage, and identify opportunities to innovate and improve customer experience.
Collaborate with the UX design team, engineering, senior leadership and customers to ensure Skytap?s overall success. Massive attention to detail and high quality standards drives success in this role.
Must be able to shepherd a project from concept all the way through implementation providing support for all UX deliverables: IA, design, user flows, user testing and design assets along the way.
Works closely with product management team and development teams to collaborate on features and customer-specific implementations.
Our ideal User Experience Architect/Designer will have:
5+ years professional experience as an information architect and visual designer with prior expertise in interactive design and user experience.
Demonstrated experience with designing B2B and B2C web-based products or web-based applications (mobile apps a plus).
An impressive design portfolio is required. Your portfolio should demonstrate the best of your past visual design projects as well as wireframes built with tools such as Axure, Omnigraffle, or Balsamic.
A great sense of design with the ability to translate complex information into stunning visual designs that are clean and cutting edge.
A Bachelor?s degree or similar experience required?a degree in design or a related field is a plus.
A strong communication skill set and the ability to present well in meetings to explain your approach and vision.
An informed set of core values regarding user experience, technology, and business communication?and the ability to present them with eloquence and concision.
Cloud computing experience a big plus.
