Work Type Level 2UX Design & Research (Regular Temp)
Our Visual Designers weave iconography, typography, color, space and texture together to help our users successfully navigate our products. We believe that all of our products should be beautiful and accessible. As a Visual Designer, you'll delight users with designs that inspire, engage and excite them. You'll rely on user-centered design principles to produce high-quality visualsfrom concept to executionacross many platforms. Like all of our UX jobs, you'll collaborate with your fellow designers to constantly refine the design language and create innovative, great-looking products that people love to use. 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 products and 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 of interaction designers, visual designers, user researchers, content strategists and web developers who collaborate closely with each other and with engineering and product management to create innovative, usable, great-looking products that people love to use.
