WHAT WILL YOU DO

This is truly an exciting time to join our UX team at Jobvite! We are in the process of building a small but exceptional team of UX practitioners, thinkers, and evangelists. Designing Jobvite's user experience presents unique challenges towards making a complex recruiting process and workflow intuitive, efficient, and easy to use for recruiters, hiring managers, employees and job seekers. There are several critical projects in play at this time that you will be involved in, including (but not limited to):

  • Unifying the UI across Jobvite and its three, newly-acquired sister companies
  • Creating a brand-new Design System for Jobvite
  • Overhauling the entire UI/UX of the Jobvite platform

In this senior level role, you will be called upon to be a hands-on UX designer, a usability guru, a thought leader, and a mentor. We are looking for a full-stack designer with proven experience in research, wire-framing, prototyping, high-fidelity comps, visual design, and interaction design, along with a reasonable working knowledge of HTML/CSS. B2B SaaS Enterprise experience is a must. Experience creating design systems is a strong nice-to-have.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Collaborating with fellow UX designers, product owners, and engineering to define and implement innovative solutions for the product direction, visuals and experience
  • Executing all design stages - from ideation to final hand-off and design execution with engineering
  • Creating high level wireframes, storyboards, user flows, process flows and site maps to effectively communicate interaction and design ideas
  • Participating in user research and analyzing usability data to develop user profiles, personas and scenarios
  • Presenting and defending designs and key milestone deliverables to peers and executive level stakeholders
  • Establishing and promoting design guidelines, best practices and standards
  • Performing audits and heuristic evaluations to baseline the current UX across our various products.

WHAT WILL YOU BRING:

  • BS/MS in a design, human factors, or UX related field
  • 6+ years of B2B SaaS Enterprise application design (not website design) at the mid-senior level
  • Experience implementing Style Guides
  • Strong content architecture, information architecture skills, and visual design skills
  • Fluency in interaction design and user-centric design processes, as well as strong knowledge of user experience principles and techniques
  • Excellent presentation skills (up to C-level executives) and ability to defend design decisions with solid rationales based on UX principles, user research, and product knowledge
  • Proven experience conducting user testing (usability testing, surveys) during various phases of the product development process
  • Experience owning projects from beginning to end
  • Ability to incorporate feedback and iterate quickly with requirements that may not be well-defined
  • Proficiency in Sketch and prototyping tools such as InVision (Principle a plus)
  • Lean UX practice and ability to work well in a user-centered agile design process by actively collaborating with Engineering and Product teams
  • Responsive design experience
  • Minimalistic, modern, and clean design sensibilities
  • Belief in team ownership and collaboration vs personal glory or hero culture
  • Exceptional attention to detail - from design inception to design execution
  • Excellent time management skills with a self-motivated and proactive attitude
  • Last but not least, a strong portfolio demonstrating design thinking, problem solving, hands-on creativity, and overall design competence

NICE TO HAVE

  • Some design agency experience
  • Hands-on proficiency with creating/maintaining Design Systems
  • Demonstrable experience working with UI/Front-end Design frameworks (like Material-UI, React, Angular)
  • Mentoring experience
  • Designing for in-app messaging (walkthroughs, surveys, self-guided onboarding, etc.)
  • Front end HTML/CSS hands-on development
  • Analytics skills
  • Data visualization background

What Will You Get:

  • Competitive salary
  • Medical/Dental/Vision/Life Insurance benefits
  • PTO – including Volunteer Time Off
  • Paid Holidays
  • An experience you will cherish forever

Recruiting technology has always been about innovation — the promise of sourcing and hiring great talent. If, like us, you believe that hiring the best people is of the utmost importance, then you should expect technology with a laser focus on helping you find today's greatest candidates.
