Senior Interaction Designer

Senior Interaction Designer

Mobify is looking for a talented Senior Interaction Designer to join our growing Customer Success Team. You'll be responsible for creating exceptional user experiences for mobile web, and native apps across smartphone, tablet… and whatever new devices the future may hold.

Working with leading brands—such as Eddie Bauer, SuperDry, and Carnival Cruise Line—you’ll have ownership of each project from the design kick-off to project launch. Through wireframes, high fidelity mocks, Invision prototypes, and constant communication with your team and customer, you will solve interesting ecommerce design problems by learning about what’s important to our customers’ end users. Using Mobify’s unique adaptive technology allows our design team to have all the content before the project even starts; how amazing is that?

As a Senior designer at Mobify you will be expected to produce not only exceptional work but contribute your skills, knowledge, and passion for design to our team of amazing individuals who really care about shipping exceptional experiences. There is no such thing as a typical day—or month!—here at Mobify.

  • Jump in and get started working with our Adaptive.js platform through small iterative maintenance projects for numerous brands
  • Kick-off an eCommerce customer project collaborating with cross discipline team members to prototype, design, and implement mobile-first web and native experiences
  • Work with your project manager to prioritize project tasks, and team up with engineers to execute your vision
  • Use experience and research to identify mobile and tablet design patterns that work
  • Contribute to the discussion and present what you know at our weekly design meetings
  • Participate in critiques and reviews with our cross-discipline design team

Who You Are

  • You value craft - You relish the full spectrum of design process: initial customer requirements gathering through to finished UI mock ups
  • You have great communication skills and love talking with customers and engineers
  • You love mentoring and guiding other designers as they hone their craft
  • You have a passion for UI/UX design, web and mobile
  • You have 5+ years of experience in designing sites using responsive techniques

  • You have the ability to clearly explain designs to engineers and customers
  • You love working as part of a team and can juggle multiple projects
  • You love having ownership over your work from start to finish
  • You are comfortable with HTML and CSS - so much of what we do at Mobify is based on a customer’s existing code base

Bonus

  • You are always wanting to grow and develop
  • You have lead small to medium sized groups of designs across multiple projects
  • You have shipped a mobile app
  • You can hand-code your designs into HTML and CSS quickly and efficiently
  • You are proficient with Javascript or jQuery
  • You are passionate about typography, photography, fine arts, or any number of creative disciplines that involve honing your craft
