The UX Designer is responsible for:
Strategic planning, working with the client and your project team to organize a website, establish site goals, user journeys and calls to action.
Wireframes & prototypes: rough sketches of a site's page layout, aligning site goals to the page structure. Establishing page flows and functionality for our development team to implement.

A solid understanding of user experience (UX) best practices.
Strong written and verbal communication skills.
An eye for consistency and attention to detail.
A keen interest in analyzing and optimizing website functionality.
At least 1-2 years experience planning and designing Web sites.
A portfolio showing us all those great sites you were planning and designing.
Ego checked at the door, if your solution is always the best (and you spend most of your time convincing others) then we probably aren't the right company for you.
