JOB: Lead User Experience Designer at SaaS Startup (San Francisco or Pleasanton)

Job Description

About Us 

We're developing an innovative new SaaS enterprise application, details of which are still under wraps. A critical part of the app vision is a killer front-end UI that is not only easy to use and productive, but fun and addictive – Web 2.0 concepts, rich interactivity, and browser-based and native mobile device front-ends (iPad, Android, etc.)

This is a great opportunity to work with a close-knit, talented team to build a great product and organization from the ground up. This opportunity will be located in a BART accessible location in Pleasanton or San Francisco. 

Responsibilities 

  • Design the user experience, including the overall information architecture, detailed interaction design, and visual design 
  • Perform rapid prototyping with static wireframes, lo-fi prototypes, and hi-fi interactive prototypes of the user experience as part of a user centered design process 
  • Evaluate usability via regular user feedback as part of your design process 
  • Develop our UX approach and lead the development of user-centered design methodologies within an agile development organization

Skills Required

  • 4+ years of experience as an Interaction Designer or UX lead 
  • A portfolio demonstrating experience with complex applications 
  • Amazing design and aesthetic sense 
  • Knowledge of visual design best practices 
  • Ability to play around comfortably with Photoshop, Fireworks, etc.

  • Basic understanding of technologies that influence UI design including AJAX, PHP, Java servlets, Ruby on Rails, etc. 
  • Experience working in a fast-moving startup environment with a team of developers 
  • Experience developing on iPhone/iPad SDKs is a plus 
  • Ability to take constructive feedback on your work. No divas!
