User Experience Architect

Location: Blacksburg, VA Posted: Oct 1

Job Description

Are you passionate about crafting the perfect digital experience? A champion who’ll fight for the user? An information architecture wizard?

We have the perfect job for you if:
• You’re ready to lead our clients through the process of understanding their audiences, uncovering the real story, and designing experiences that move people to act.
• You can see the big picture but still enjoy every excruciating, messy detail.
• You like working in small teams with people who know their stuff. We’re not big fans of hierarchy—we give team members a lot of freedom, which means we need to be able to count on everybody to deliver.
• You want to live in a small college town in the mountains, while working for world-class clients. Think, “10-minute commute.”

The architect works with a project from stakeholder interviews through implementation to ensure that, as designs come together and development moves forward, all aspects of the product shape a consistent experience that’s true to the original vision. You’re the one who discovers that sweet spot between client goals and user needs—serving as advocate, negotiator, and occasionally peacemaker.

Along the way, you’ll use every tool in the UX/IA toolbox: user interviews, qualitative research, wireframes, prototyping, usability testing — whatever you need to help our clients tell their story with impact.

At least 2 years of experience in a UX or information architecture role is required. This posting is for a full-time position with the team in our Blacksburg, Virginia, office. Working from the Blacksburg office is preferred, but we are open to remote work for the right fit.

You must be authorized to work in the U.S. full-time.

NewCity is a 21 year-old, 30-person firm. We work in a highly collaborative, low-ego environment to create effective digital experiences for the real world. We ask big questions, dream big dreams, and set our sights on accomplishing aggressive goals for clients and our work. We’re constantly learning, experimenting, and reinventing NewCity.
