What we're looking for

A designer whose work is clean, modern, inspiring, and above all else, empathetic. Design is extremely important to our product development process. This is a senior design role that will give you the opportunity to have very direct influence over how our product looks, is used, and the way our customers interact with it. You will be a core member of Paxos’ Product team and work closely with product managers, engineers, business stakeholders and most importantly have direct access to customers. This role is going to be involved in the strategic level of the creative process; it’s not an assembly line position.

What you will do

  • Design Paxos’ product user interfaces (including information architecture and interaction design)
  • Represent and ensure UX integrity when collaborating with marketing, engineers and product managers to address brand, technology, and business requirements
  • Evaluate existing user experiences and identify areas for improvement
  • Deliver all project phases from concept and design to production (evaluations, task flows, scenarios, information architectures, interaction models, wireframes, storyboards, low-fidelity prototypes, and design guidelines)
  • Conduct user testing sessions with customers to gain insights and validate assumptions
  • Deliver UI assets such as high-fidelity prototypes that can be used for user testing and product requirements
  • Test application UIs to ensure proper implementation, and filing bugs to track problems/discrepancies

Things we look out for

  • BS or MS in Human Computer Interaction, Human Factors, Information Science, Graphic Design with emphasis on UX design, or Computer Science with emphasis on UX development
  • Must have 5+ years industry experience in similar role as a UX or Product Designer
  • A track record that includes shipping “winning” products that delight the user
  • Senior level experience architecting user experience solutions and applications for desktop and mobile platforms
  • Expert understanding of information architecture, workflows, concept development and interaction design
  • Experience working in a fast-paced, collaborative Agile environment
  • Some experience in user research and usability testing
  • Basic front-end development (HTML/CSS/Javascript) skills
  • Experience launching products a plus
