Active Network Assoc. UI Designer in United States

ACTIVE’s User Experience Design group is passionate about making a real difference in the lives of our users through data and design. As a multidisciplinary team that includes both User Research and Interaction Design, we are a driving force on our products, helping both product management and development gain a new perspective on our users. We are involved at all points of our software development lifecycle – from inception to production. Our team consists of smart, creative, self-driven people who take their work seriously (but not themselves). To be successful on our team, you must combine the ability to be analytical with the ability to be creative – understand the box, then make it into a space ship. Or a house. Or maybe a submarine. You must have strong problem solving skills and be self-directed in your work. We work fast, so bring your running shoes.

As an Associate UI Designer, you will:

  • Understand both the strategic and tactical aspects of interface design and be able to operate at both levels.

  • Understand business goals and user goals, using both to define your design goals.

  • Work on multiple products and product lines.

  • Review these designs with the design team and your product team to ensure they are desirable, saleable, usable, and implementable. You are able to explain your decisions cogently and accept feedback gracefully.

  • Track your designs through implementation to ensure final integrity of the product.

  • A strong portfolio of product work that can speak to both your interaction and visual design skills.

  • Extensive prototyping and interaction design experience.

  • Continually seek to enhance and improve your design knowledge.

Requirements

  • Degree with 1+ years in the UI design field

  • Design portfolio showing your UI design work for product or web-applications, highlighting strategic design work

  • Excellent teamwork and communication skills

  • A sense of humor. Puns will be considered in a pinch.

  • Exceptional tactical and strategic problem solving skills – both analytical and creative

  • A demonstrated understanding of what it means to solve problems using software

  • A demonstrated understanding of how to set and achieve long term goals (be prepared to provide examples)

DESIRED EXPERIENCE AND QUALITIES

  • Experience working in an Agile development environment

  • Mobile design experience

  • Experience using Sketch, InVision, and Axure
