What we’re looking for:


We’re seeking an Interaction Designer Senior / Architect with the technical skills to rapidly prototype interactive software with varying levels of fidelity, and the design skills to make compelling experiences with rough requirements.


Reporting to the UX Design Director, you’re responsible for participating in our innovation and product prototyping initiatives, taking UX concepts and ideas and making them experiential and suitable for user testing.

  • Apply visual, audio, and haptic design skill. (Don’t worry about the haptic design part – you’ll learn it. But you need the design foundation in visual and audio before you get here.)
  • Work both independently and in collaboration with our UX design and analysis staff.
  • Assist with usability testing of the prototypes you create.

Hi I'm Zach, a self taught mobile motion designer and finance career switcher. I do a lot of work in Principle and AE and have been freelancing but I'd like to join a team where I can learn from someone senior. I'm passionate about micro-animation and picky about easing functions. Do you have any positions available that aren't for senior levels?



Hi Zach,

Thank you for your interest. be sure to apply directly for the job so that the hiring manager can see your resume.


Thank you,


Ok will do! Thanks for the reply.
