About the Role

Cadence 13 has a great opportunity for a design leader to provide vision for the future and collaborate with our product team. You’ll join a cross-functional team working on key efforts, looking critically at how Cadence13’s platform can empower our creator partners to grow and develop their respective audiences.

You will define the user experience for partners and consumers across a wide variety of platforms - from the web, to mobile devices and tablets, to a multitude of consumer electronics devices. As a member of our highly motivated team you should be dedicated to excellence and have a strong sense of personal responsibility.

What You’ll Do

  • Create brilliant, user-centered designs based on customer feedback, business needs, and market research

  • Rapidly iterate through feature additions and updates, considering various use cases and user flows across different platforms

  • Design a cohesive UI architecture, interface, and interaction flow for Cadence13’s interactive partner platform

  • Create wireframes and translate into visual mockups where possible

  • Shepherd projects from inception to completion - from ideation, to design, to development, and finally QA

  • Work with product managers, engineers, data analysts, and marketing to identify potential opportunities for UX enhancements

  • Lead and run usability testing

  • Set the bar for excellence on the product design team and lead more junior designers by example

Who You Are

  • You are a deep-thinking user experience designer that considers the big, holistic picture – never jumping straight into high-fidelity, pixel-perfect design without thoroughly exploring every facet of the user journey. You’re strong at conceptual thinking with an ability to understand the user’s needs, motivations and behaviors and translate them into actionable deliverables.

  • You’re a great communicator. You have the communication skills to help set up frameworks and brainstorm initial design concepts. You also have the ability to mentor others to deliver work, and make strategy come to life.

  • You have a people-focused design mentality. Even though you have incredible chops, you are constantly looking to hone your design instinct through user feedback. Whether through hands-on user research, or by designing options for an A/B test.

Requirements:

  • 5+ years experience as a user experience designer, interaction designer, and/or visual designer

  • Strong understanding of user-centered design methodologies, usability principles, mobile platform design guidelines, and the ability to provide detailed specifications and style guides

  • Proficient with design tools like: Sketch and Adobe Creative Suite. Experienced with prototyping apps like: Proto.io, Principle, Marvel, Invision and Framer.

  • A strong portfolio or samples of work demonstrating great user-centered design solutions

  • A desire to create fun interfaces that work just as well on a mass market scale as they do for partners and creators.

  • An understanding of how design impacts development and a knack for constructing dynamic, interactive designs that are technically feasible

  • Excellent communication, presentation, and interpersonal skills

Bonus Experience:

  • Experience creating infographics and business intelligence systems

  • Industry experience in internet media or e-commerce

  • Experience with Agile software development
