UI & UX Jobs

New York Permanent $160000 - $190000 annually

We’re looking for an exceptionally talented, inventive, and thoughtful UX designer to be part of building a revolutionary new suite of products to make people happier and more productive at work!

This UX Lead will define the user experience for the core mobile and web products that tie together the expansive ecosystem of apps: search experiences, natural language and chatbot interaction paradigms, cross-platform messaging, navigation patterns, and more. It’s an expansive UX role, where design, technical, and product thinking are all essential. You’ll work closely with the cutting-edge machine learning and platform engineering teams, as well as the amazing enterprise-scale design system UX team.

This team is passionate, innovative, and rapidly growing! Made up of UX designers, researchers, engineers, and product managers working in a fast-paced, user-centric environment. The ideal UX Designer will bring enthusiasm, invention, and fearlessness to the role, coupled with a strong desire to solve problems for millions of users around the world

The kind of Responsibilities you’d cover;

  • Lead and define the UX vision for the core user experiences.

  • Design and continuously refine the system-wide navigation, search, and information architecture products and features.

  • Collaborate effectively with product management, engineering, and user research throughout release cycles

  • Lead and set direction for associate designers, working towards a common vision

  • Stay on top of changing UX design technologies, as well as industry standards to ensure leading-edge interpretation and execution of design applications

  • Define best practices and contribute to the design system

  • Be able to balance strategic leadership with strong hands-on UX problem solving

  • Help drive user research and testing efforts

  • Participate in the recruitment and interview process for new UX designers.

The kind of experience you’ll be expected to have;

  • Experience creating sophisticated, elegant design and a desire to help others produce the same. You know how to set goals and motivate others to reach them, and enjoy coaching and mentoring a team

  • You’ve shipped product: you know the challenges (and rewards!) of release cycles and how to partner across the organization at every stage, shipping quickly and at the highest level of quality

  • Demonstrated ability to successfully manage several large projects simultaneously

  • Ability to work hand-in-hand with product team members on requirements and design

  • Experience prototyping on multiple platforms

  • Ability to act as an internal consultant providing business and technical guidance: you’re comfortable talking about business models and analytics

  • At least 5 years of industry experience (preferably in an agile environment), with minimum of two managing and guiding teams

  • An exceptional design portfolio with well-thought-out interactions and interface designs across both web and mobile applications

Knowing this company and the pedigree of Designers they have – this is truly an exceptional opportunity to join an incredible team as well as work on an incredibly high level Product!
