Overview

We are looking for a talented Senior Experience Designer to join our agency.  At Velir, we know that great design can change perspectives, drive behaviors, and spark action. It all starts with genuine people, purpose-driven projects, and an work environment that supports the creation of inspiring work.  As an integral member within our Experience Design team, you’ll feel the importance of user experience and the role of design in developing new solutions for our clients. You are familiar with user-centric design processes on a practical level, and with visual design, bringing new concepts and experiences to life.  In short: you’ll work on purpose-driven organizations and brands ranging from globally recognized foundations, non-profit organizations, associations, healthcare, and higher education.

Responsibilities

  • Use best practices and strong foundational standards related to design / user experience across the user journey
  • Create and present designs that effectively communicate the function and brand identity, including the design and production of design concepts, visual/storyboards, layouts and scenarios, using visual elements and design principles
  • Work collaboratively and clearly communicate design decisions to everyone you collaborate with. You can balance design objectives with the user and business in mind and offer creative options along the way. You continuously follow visual design trends and know when and how to use them in your projects
  • Create engaging, usable, and effective design solutions to achieve user-focused goals and business objectives
  • Familiarity with leading and/or assisting in workshops and brainstorming sessions with internal team members or with the client to define conceptual approaches
  • Partner closely with Strategy, Business System Analysis, Analytics, SEO, and Development to translate business and user goals into elegant and practical design

Skills & Qualifications

  • 5 to 9 years of experience designing for web and mobile
  • An online portfolio that showcases your UX design skills and demonstrates originality, innovation, and strong problem-solving skills
  • Broad thinking, and your ability to offer a variety of creative design solutions
  • Experience developing and running design-focused workshops
  • Data visualization and infographics design experience
  • Ability to communicate conceptual ideas, detailed designs, and design rationale, both verbally and visually to internal teams and clients
  • Ability to provide expertise and mentorship to others
  • An agency mindset; excellent time management skills, with the ability to prioritize and multitask, and work under shifting deadlines in a fast-paced environment

Not Required but Highly Desirable

  • Animation and micro-interaction design experience
  • Front-end code experience (HTML/CSS/JavaScript)

Physical Requirements

  • Frequent sitting at a desk performing work on a computer
  • Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the essential functions
