UX Designer – Calgary, AB
We are currently looking for a User Experience Designer to add to our growing Product Design Team in our Calgary Office. What does a UX Designer do here? Good question, as the role is a bit different in ever organization. Our UX Designers are responsible for ensuring that the websites and applications we create for our clients are accessible, engaging, and delightful for their users and customers. Usually that involves some amount of research, information architecture, prototyping, testing, visual design and animation. We know… it’s a lot. Don’t worry though, it’s a supportive environment filled with passionate people who love to help. It’s probably our best quality!
We are creative problem solvers, and we like to ask a lot of questions. We are geared for innovation, but not at the expense of the product or it’s users. We’re comfortable zooming in to the tiniest of details and zooming back out to understand how it all fits together. If this actually sounds like we’re describing you, we should chat.
What We'd Like To See
A portfolio that not only demonstrates your visual design chops but also articulates how you helped solve the user or business problem.
Familiar with conducting or interpreting user research.
Experience with information architecture, interaction design, visual and motion design, content strategy, prototyping and testing.
A solid grasp of user-centered design.
Stellar communication skills–the ability to articulate your design solutions to clients and team members using a mixture of data and storytelling.
Highly collaborative with developers and project managers to ensure the product vision is fully implemented to the highest standard.
Experience with the latest design and prototyping tools.
