  • Establish collaborative working relationships with the creative, technical and engagement teams
  • Journey and site maps, and wireframes
  • Develop rapid prototyping
  • Assist in shaping Sagepath’s offerings and evolving user experience standards
  • Support sales by developing solution approaches for RFP responses

 

Skills:

  • Bachelor’s degree preferred or equivalent work experience with emphasis in digital-first initiatives
  • 5+ years of experience leading and/or contributing to information architectures and user interface designs for web site, web app, client app, mobile web and mobile app projects
  • Experience in using the latest prototyping, wireframing and design tools (Axure, Sketch, Invision, etc.)
  • Knowledgeable of CSS/HTML5, responsive design, native app frameworks
  • Excellent critical thinking and problem solving skills, both at a high-level and at a detailed-level
  • Strong research, organization and presentation abilities
  • Ability to balance competing project assignments without jeopardizing delivery deadlines
  • Familiarity with web analytics and using analytical insights to drive improvements
  • Work experience in an agency environment
  • An understanding of design fundamentals — typography, hierarchy, layout, grid systems, etc. — is a plus.

 

Please include samples (or a link to your portfolio), and your thinking and process behind the work.
