This role would work collaboratively with UX research to architect and design solid user-centric experiences across a range of brands for my client. There is a large workstream in progress, but also some smaller workstreams that require UX design optimisation. So a willingness to lead the UX on a project, but participate on smaller packages of work elsewhere is useful.
Working under the guidance of the User Experience Lead, you will take responsibility for some or all of the tasks related to their large internal project, but also be able to take ownership of some brand-led initiatives. You should be comfortable working in agile/kanban along side Visual Designers, Developers and Product Owners, delivering UX architecture and design, and feel comfortable running workshops, doing guerilla testing and iterating your designs based upon evidence gathered.
To be suitable for this position, you should have demonstrable experience delivering digital products across a diverse range of devices, preferably with solid experience on mobile and touch - and be happy to defend your user-centered design approach.
*Ensure the user experience supports the strategic vision, and is achievable within the technical constraints of the project
*Maintain a user-centered and evidence-based approach to UX design
*Be able to articulate the importance of modelling content with stakeholders, and facilitate that process
*Assist in facilitating discovery workshops and stakeholder interviews to define project objectives
*Use a process of research, design, and validation to create innovative solutions that meet specific business and functional criteria
*Explore and map user needs through audience analysis, user narratives, and process flow diagrams
*Design experiences either from concept or as an iteration on existing platforms
*Work closely with the creative team to develop the vision of the project
*Be able to and willing to prototype - be it on paper, InVision or using a prototying tool and iterate your ideas
*Be able to sketch, create low and high fidelity wireframes and build simple interactive prototypes
*Produce detailed UX deliverables, as required. These may include user journeys, interaction-flow diagrams, site maps, wireframes, prototypes and UI spec documentation
*Collaborate and iterate with developers in fast-paced design-build cycles
*Maintain a strong focus on quality and timely delivery across multiple projects
*Research: Interviewing Users, Card Sorts
*Prototyping software (eg: proto.io)
*Some basic coding - for prototyping
*Axure RP (Nice to have)
