Senior UX Designer

Mobify is looking for a Senior UX Designer to join our R&D Product team, based in downtown Vancouver.

This is a role for a multi-talented individual who will bring a wide set of skills and experience to the table. You'll work with design, engineering and product management teams to collect actionable insights, formulate design strategies, and help us build better products. We’re looking for a UX specialist who is experienced, curious, passionate, and not afraid to challenge assumptions about our users, our product, our processes, and our company.

About the Job

Your work will range from early-stage formative research to post-release evaluation, and each step in between. We’re looking for someone adaptable, someone who can conduct field research one day, usability studies the next, and make prioritized recommendations based on your findings. You’ll help improve Mobify’s platform for the mobile shopping experience, from web sites to apps to push notifications, across many devices and form factors.

You should be able to balance the tradeoffs between applying different methods while delivering high-quality, high-impact results quickly. You will continually learn from users, think holistically, and share your insights broadly across the company.

  • Follow through on insights by ensuring they result in product design improvements, changed product priorities, and roadmap enhancements
  • Evangelize UX to diverse audiences through written reports and oral presentations

Requirements

  • 7+ years of experience developing interactive products as a Product Designer, Information Architect, Interaction Designer, or User Experience Designer in a web context
  • Portfolio of UX work that demonstrates a strong blend of qualitative UX approaches (interviewing, lab and remote usability testing, field research) and quantitative methods (statistical analysis, log analysis, A/B testing)
  • Familiarity with wireframing, rapid in-browser prototyping, and other relevant processes and tools
  • Understanding of strengths and shortcomings of different research methods including when and how to apply them during each product phase
  • Ability to think holistically; plan research that spans different roles including buyer vs user personas
  • Independent worker who takes ownership and initiative; ability to determine what to work on, how to accomplish it, and when to deliver
