Lead UX Designer

Recruiters and staffing companies NEED NOT contact us and DO NOT have permission to contact candidates on our behalf.

We are looking for a Design Lead to join our team at Think Company!

You should have experience leading major design and user research initiatives, being the client’s primary point of contact, and partnering with multi-disciplinary internal teams. If you love solving problems through an intensely collaborative design process with both clients and colleagues — and can communicate those ideas clearly — you may be our ideal candidate.

Your first project will be leading the continued design of an emerging data and analytics platform. Experience leading digital product design initiatives is a must. Knowledge of the Media and Entertainment business is a bonus.

You’ll be working with a client team of senior executives, product owners, developers, and data scientists. Ability to lead dynamic, engaging, fast-paced design sessions that sometimes require improvising on the fly to keep the conversations moving is critical. Experience developing platforms that access large data sets and produce meaningful data visualizations is a requirement. Our Design Leads serve on project teams by leading the creation of UX deliverables, leading Think Sessions, and overseeing other design activities.

Responsibilities:

  • Build and maintain positive relationships with clients
  • Strategize and lead competitive and comparative research efforts
  • Lead and participate in creative brainstorming sessions with clients and internal project teams
  • Clearly and effectively present ideas, research findings, sketches, and other deliverables to clients
  • Design solutions that incorporate current best practices in usability, interaction design, data visualization, and user research 
  • Construct compelling narratives for product owner presentations that showcase new products and features to targeted audiences
  • Create deliverables from scratch, including: sketches, wireframes, workflow diagrams, requirements documentation, user research, usability testing scripts, and discussion guides
  • Conduct needs analyses by synthesizing client discussions, system assessments, user data, and market research
  • Lead UX research and usability testing sessions
  • Stay up-to-date on current best practices, trends, and technologies in user experience design

Requirements:

  • Minimum of 5 years of proven experience in the UX design field
  • Experience leading projects and teams focused on UX design and research with a special focus on large data sets and related visualizations
  • Extreme attention to detail with a focus on efficiency
  • Proven ability to drive project work streams and deliverables with little to no oversight
  • Proven ability to clearly communicate design ideas to team members and clients in live presentations
  • Working knowledge of tools and applications that support UX deliverables, such as wireframes, prototypes, data visualization, and flowcharts

Sound compelling? Feel like a match? We’d love to hear from you! To help the process along, tell us a bit about yourself and share some samples of your best design work. We are committed to diversity and especially encourage members of underrepresented communities to apply. Think Company is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
