Senior UX Designer
Design at Bessemer Alliance:
We are a small business and design consulting firm based in Pittsburgh, PA. Our client base is diverse, ranging from small startups to global Fortune 100 companies. Our client engagements typically involve:
Research - identify how people operate today and why, uncovering unmet needs
Strategy - plan how the needs of the business and users will be addressed effectively and sustainably
Design - synthesize research and strategy into elegant solutions via efficient iterations of designing, building, and testing
In addition to client work, we are working on a top-secret, internally-developed product that is slated for limited release in Q1 2018 (it is going to be great). You are getting in on the ground floor, and will be pivotal to this new product's success in the years to come.
We are not your typical agency. We work hard, compensate accordingly, and believe all members of our team should have the opportunity to participate in and benefit from our entrepreneurial enterprises. To this end, we are looking less for individuals to fill a position than we are looking for collaborators to shape the trajectory of our firm and its culture. Our designers collaborate closely, yet our small size and the amount of client work require team members to be comfortable playing multiple roles in a project and being self-directed. We believe this balance of self-direction and collaboration are ideal for personal growth.
You may be fit for this role if you:
Are an expert in translating user needs and business requirements into meaningful, empowering experiences.
Experienced in designing across platforms – desktop, web, and mobile.
Have the ability to conduct user research, from contextual inquiry to usability testing.
Can facilitate group design exercises, including participatory design, ideation, research synthesis, etc.
Are as comfortable wireframing in Sketch as you are prototyping in Framer
Demonstrate understanding of layout, typography, color, and imagery.
Love solving problems – we thrive working for a wide range of design and business challenges for a diverse client base.
Have strong communication & presentation skills.
