 Have a passion for creating useful, usable, desirable omnichannel experiences? Desire to execute efficient, standards-based, scalable solutions? Do you thrive with the challenge of designing for multiple enterprise platforms – Salesforce, ServiceNow, SharePoint, etc.? If so, this role might be right for you.
 
Our Business Technology team is looking for a Sr UX Designer who will focus on interaction design and user experience of our web and mobile enterprise applications. We are looking for a motivated individual with enterprise application design experience (preferably on the Salesforce platform). The individual will help define, design, and execute our various business applications within the standards and constraints of the enterprise platform. You will have a tremendous opportunity to influence the experience across multiple platforms/projects targeting internal and external users. 

Responsibilities

  • Design simple and intuitive user experiences keeping the user personas in the middle of every design decision
  • Own all aspects of design - IA, user flows, wireframes, and mockups (based on previously established style guides).
  • Identify the research needs and partner with the team to conduct interviews, user journeys and, more importantly, gather active user feedback before, after, and during development to help foster the data-driven design culture.
  • Contribute, manage and continue to build out our design systems. Promote design guidelines, best practices, and standards via the design systems.
  • Have 5+ years of experience with (enterprise) user experience design and application development.
  • Have a degree in Human-computer interaction (HCI), Interaction Design, or a related field. A graduate degree is a plus.
  • The successful candidate will have a portfolio that illustrates the processes and artifacts that demonstrate the designer's role in bringing the product and user needs together.
  • Experience and knowledge of using Salesforce products are a plus.
  • Proficient in relevant design tools – Figma, Sketch, Adobe products, InVision, and Miro

  • The ideal candidate will share our core values: COLLEGIALITY, INTEGRITY, and RATIONALITY.
  • Collegiality - We value strong teams. We work together as professional equals. We strive to continuously improve our processes and make realistic assumptions to maintain a reasonable work-life balance. We are trusted to manage our own time. We value ideas, not titles. We welcome and consider contrary opinions.
  • Integrity - We insist on honest relationships with customers, prospective customers, partners, investors, and each other in everything that we do.
  • Rationality - We communicate through clear arguments. We decide carefully based on factual evidence. We like calm, systematic, thoughtful solutions. We believe in testing. We never assume that we're building software the "best" way, and continuously seek to improve our processes.
