Job Description

Your Team

At Bresslergroup, we’re a motivated lot of thinkers, makers, and problem solvers. We challenge and inspire each other every day. We’re curious, clever, and confident, and we look for candidates who are all those things and more. Our firm is technically grounded, so that we can take any idea — no matter how complex — and make it a reality, while simultaneously keeping our designs simple and elegant. With a range of disciplines under one roof, we work in multidisciplinary teams whose combined research, strategic, creative, and technical expertise add value throughout a collaborative product-development process. This is how we deliver innovative solutions to our clients. From our office in the heart of downtown Philadelphia, we partner with U.S. and international clients, who range from startups to global market leaders. Recently we announced we’re merging with Delve, an innovation consulting firm based in Madison, Wisconsin, with offices in Boston and San Francisco.

Your Purpose

As an Interaction Designer, you will work closely with the research, industrial design, and engineering teams to craft elegant experiences across platforms, devices, objects, and environments. Your work experience spans beyond Web UX to include embedded User Interfaces or mobile app development projects. Your work informs the entire product experience – physical and digital interactions, experience architecture, communication, and visual design. You will be challenged to create meaningful user experiences in embedded systems, mobile devices and desktop applications, gesture, voice, and other novel product interactions. You’ll develop wireframes, user flows, interactive prototypes, and explore new ways of communicating interactions and experiences. Above all, you’re excited to create the product experiences of the future.

Key Responsibilities

** Define experience goals, interaction principles, use cases, and rationale for applying interaction modalities across hardware and software layers.

** Develop personas, journey maps, interaction models, user flows, task flows, interactive prototypes, visual designs, and UI specifications.

** Work with Director of Interaction Design and other designers to define the visual styles and elements of product UI, as well as the communication style of the overall experience.

** Lead clients through the problem definition and product design process, by planning and facilitating collaborative workshop sessions with clients and key stakeholders.

** Work with research team to conduct and observe user testing, and iteratively incorporate feedback to improve product design and user experience.

** Act as a Technical Lead on client projects for the IxD team, and mentor junior designers as needed.

More About You

You have at least a Bachelor’s degree in Human-Computer Interaction, Graphic Design, Psychology, Integrated Product Design, or a related discipline. You have at least 3 years of experience designing for mobile and consumer electronics UI and desktop software. You have worked in a consulting environment for at least 2 years and are familiar with how they operate.

You are clever.

You have a true passion for Interaction Design and human-centered product design. You are comfortable creating wireframes, interactive prototypes, user flows, development assets, and UI design specifications using Sketch, Invision, or Adobe Creative Suite. You understand the importance of and can apply principles of visual design such as hierarchy, layout, typography, iconography, and color. You can apply human factors principles to the design of consumer, commercial, and medical device products. You understand the capabilities and limitations of the latest web, mobile, and software technologies. You have excellent writing, presentation, and interpersonal skills – all needed for research facilitation, interviews, and client presentations.

You are curious.

You like to explore new territories and learn from others. You are curious about emerging technology for Interaction Design, User Experience, and clever new ways of interacting with everyday things. You can successfully lead clients through problem definition and the innovation process during workshop sessions. You dig into challenges and find hidden opportunities; and you balance an open mind and creativity with analytical thinking and attention to detail.

You are confident.

You are confident in your technical skills and your ability to add value to high profile and critical design challenges. You are comfortable with ambiguity and complexity, because sometimes that leads to the most unique, unexpected design solutions. You want to work in an environment where things move quickly, and you’re happy to adapt as situations shift. You can work on-site in our Philadelphia office, and you are willing to travel for occasionally for client work.
