What You'll Be Helping Achieve

RPA is seeking a UX Designer to join the User Experience team. Design and user experience (UX) are at the forefront of everything we do. The job of a UX Designer is to envision how people experience web sites and applications and bring that vision to life in a way that feels inspired, refined and even magical. In a UX Designer role, you'll take on complex tasks and transform them into intuitive, accessible and easy-to-use designs for millions of people who access the Honda brand through their flagship site, the Automobiles website. Achieving this goal requires collaboration with teams of Designers, Engineers and Client Service teams throughout the design processfrom creating user flows and wireframes to building user interface mockups and prototypes. At each stage, you will anticipate what users need, advocate for them and ensure that the final product surprises and delights them.

We follow a simple but vital premise in the UX group: "Focus on the user and all else will follow." We're interested in our users and strive to learn everything we can about their behaviors, attitudes and emotions to help define the experiences we create. The UX team plays an integral part in gathering these insights and then using them to inspire and inform design. We are a multi-disciplinary team who collaborate closely with each other and with engineering and creative to create innovative, usable, great-looking experience that people love to use. Candidates will have 3+ years of industry experience.

What You'll Be Working On

  • Help to define the user model and user interface for Honda Automobiles' digital experience

  • Develop high-level and/or detailed storyboards, mockups, and prototypes to effectively communicate interaction and design ideas

  • Gauge the usability of new and existing experiences and making constructive suggestions for change

How You'll Excel In Your Role

  • Experience working with web or mobile based technologies such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, etc.

  • Experience in crafting usable digital interfaces

  • Demonstrated visual design sensibilities relating to applying a brand to digital experiences

  • Excellent leadership, communication and collaboration skills

RPA is an EOE.
