Vivint is looking for a Sr. UX Designer to work with our Business Strategy & Innovation team. On this team you'll be prototyping future looking products and services and validating consumer interest in them. You will work collaboratively with the design, business strategy, product and engineering teams to deliver on the vision of great future-looking smart home products.

You are passionate about understanding people and designing product experiences for them. Typography and grid layouts are always top of mind, and pixel perfection is your mindset. You thrive in a thoughtful environment of product builders, and balance this with disciplined execution. You are pragmatic, but you aren't averse to taking risks.

You are willing to work with a small team to rapidly prototype and vet new ideas, and are comfortable building throw away mock-apps from the ground up. You need to be open-minded, able to learn quickly, communicate clearly, and have the capacity to get things done even if the task is less defined.

You're excited about working with a team focused on discovering value quickly and enjoy collaborating with other designers, product folk, and engineers to create prototypes that highlight everyday value to consumers. At your core, you have confidence that you can solve any problem that's handed to you.

The day-to-day

  • Work with the Product, Engineering and Design teams to distill complicated problems into simple, minimal solutions

  • Rapidly prototype and iterate on multiple future-looking product concepts through low fidelity app prototypes, user journey maps, storyboards, etc.

  • Use tools like Sketch and Adobe Creative Suite to mock up concepts, and tools like InVision, User Testing, HTML, CSS and JavaScript to prototype ideas.

  • Think strategically about the product, business, and overall user experience.

Qualifications

  • Expertise in user experience, interaction design, and building prototypes for a consumer facing product

  • Ability to balance true creativity, the needs of the business, and what is best for our users and community

  • Solid working knowledge of the latest design tools, especially Sketch, InVision, Principle and Framer

  • Ability to code web experiences using basic HTML, CSS and JavaScript

  • Ability to quickly prototype your ideas, bringing interactions to life

  • Experience planning and running user research practices

  • Strong understanding of typography, grids and color theory

  • A love for making things beautiful and usable

  • A team player who is highly collaborative

Nice to have

  • Deeper programming experience

  • Your choice between Mac or PC

  • Employee pricing on smart home products

  • Casual dress code

  • Onsite gym

  • Onsite parking or Commuter Rail pass

  • Medical/dental/vision/life coverage
