As a Senior User Experience Designer in our UX team, your work will be varied. Some days you'll be rubbing elbows with our close-knit agile engineering teams, making products that users love. Others, you'll be talking with users in an office around the corner—or on the other side of the world. In a typical week you might deal with stakeholder feature requests, analyze a process, design a workflow, define and create interaction flows, wireframes, review feedback on released features, and drive new features in web or mobile apps.

We're a close-knit, collaborative group and we support each other in achieving our company's goals. Our UX designers are expected to have a seat at the table with the other product development stakeholders.

Here’s the kind of person we’re looking for:

We are looking for experienced Senior UX Designers with a passion for creating best-in-class experiences for our various construction and engineering products. You’ll be contributing and collaborating with the larger design org, defining reusable patterns and extending the design language we use across all apps.

  • You are passionate about solving complex problems through elegant and simple interaction and design solutions.

  • You thrive on working well with others. You make the people around you better. You love to collaborate with UXers, researchers, engineers, business analysts, product managers, executives, and inspire them to do their best.

  • You are an advocate for the end user. You balance technical and delivery constraints when creating accessible and engaging user interfaces based on complex requirements and tight deadlines.

  • You are skilled in your craft and appropriately apply different methodologies to adapt to the situation at hand.

  • You have excellent communication, facilitation, presentation, interpersonal and analytical skills including the ability to communicate complex, interactive design concepts clearly and persuasively across different audiences.

  • You love rules and you know when to break them. You think systemically because you know that creating a coherent experience requires it. But you know when the system needs to expand to accommodate the variety of user conceptual models. And you know when to do something completely unique to create an arresting and product-defining moment that makes users ooh and aah.

  • You love finding out you’re wrong. You consume large amounts of quantitative and qualitative data to constantly refine your assumptions.

  • You’re confident in planning and executing user research and usability studies. You know the importance of understanding user behaviors, needs, motivations and the impact this has on the product you design.

  • You exhibit a growth mindset and have a willingness to own problems. You embrace ambiguity and always think the glass is half full.

  • And finally, you want to be part of creating dramatic and impactful change at a company that is committed to becoming a light unto others when it comes to user experience.
