  • Principal Design Manager - Bing Design Bellevue, WA

    What Bing knows about the people, places, and things of our world fills literally tens of thousands of servers distributed on six continents. It knows the address of your favorite sushi restaurant, the latest release from your favorite band, and the current mayor of your hometown. It can show you what the nerves deep inside your brain look like as well as the formation of stars halfway across the galaxy. It knows the difference between Jim Brown and James Brown. Bing even knows the most direct route from Centraal Station in Amsterdam to the Van Gogh Museum.

    But before Bing can deliver exactly the information that you want, someone needs to design it to be accessible, understandable, and even inspirational. That’s why design plays such an integral part in Bing’s transformation of the search experience into something radically more useful.

    Are you looking for a challenge that encompasses a broad set of design issues and the opportunity to work in a highly collaborative and passionate design studio? The Bing Design group is seeking an exceptional Principal Creative Design Director to drive and develop best-in-class consumer experiences (user interface designs, interaction models, prototypes, etc.) in a fast-paced environment.

You must be a pragmatic visionary that can translate business needs into a fantastic customer-focused solution. You must be responsive, flexible, and able to succeed within an open and collaborative peer environment.

    • 15+ years of experience as a UX Designer and or Interaction Designer in a product, web, mobile, agency, and or large consumer online company.

    • Build and manage an outstanding team of user experience design professionals.
    • Effectively manage and assign priorities and workloads, and forecast staffing needs.
    • Build respect and credibility with stakeholders, management peers, direct reports, and executives.
    • Introduce, develop, and ensure best design practices, processes and communicate quality expectations organizationally.
    • Demonstrate a command of design methods, tools, communication, and presentation skills.

    A strong portfolio is absolutely critical for this role, both in terms of demonstrating your experience and as an example of your ability to create a compelling design presentation. Your portfolio should showcase your experience in UX and interaction design, particularly where simplicity and ease of use were a major concern. We’d like to see a diversity of projects and a solid collection of outcomes and deliverables (flows, mockups, and prototypes), and be sure the portfolio demonstrates the design and thought process behind each image.
