  • Construct compelling narratives for product owner presentations that showcase new products and features to targeted audiences
  • Collaborate with client designers, stakeholders, and developers to build consensus and support
  • 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
  • Direct the team's effort and track their progress through tools such as Kanban-style boards, ticketing systems, etc.
  • 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
  • Extreme attention to detail with a focus on efficiency
  • Proven ability to drive project work streams and deliverables with little to no oversight

  • Working knowledge of tools and applications that support UX deliverables, such as wireframes, prototypes, data visualization, and flowcharts
  • Solid understanding of front-end development and technology

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
