Responsibilities

Senior User Experience Designer

We're looking for a talented, experienced, and driven Senior User Experience Designer to join the Macquarium @ Synoptek team and bring their ideas & skills to tough challenges. This is a company that's growing fast and constantly reinventing itself. But some things never change: UX is the bedrock of what we do, and we know that the best experiences come from a team that cares about what they create and puts actual humans in the driver's seat. Do our ideals sound like your ideals? Let's talk.

  • Create, defend, and own design artifacts including site maps, user flows, wireframes, prototypes, and some visual design.
  • Think beyond the happy path: in design there be dragons, so pay attention to what's around the next corner.
  • Move beyond opinion and into evidence by planning and executing user research such as interviews, contextual inquiries, and in-depth usability testing.
  • Go broad and iterate: have a process that lets you come up with multiple strong solutions to every problem.
  • Be the face of your own designs by presenting directly to clients and guiding them through our collective thinking.
  • Collaborate with purpose. There's a wide range of perspectives and experience at Macquarium and among our clients, and you'll need to collaborate effectively to learn, educate, share ideas, and create the best solutions possible.
  • Lead working sessions and workshops for discovery, design co-creation, and more.
  • Help drive the direction by calling out opportunities to add more customer value.
