I have an interview with a large pan-European technology company next week who are opening up a new role for a user experience architect. Reading between the lines in the job spec, the role also involves service design and some business analysis; this is something that I welcome. As a company that is opening up a new user experience architect role, what are the pertinent questions I should be asking to uncover what is planned for the future? I don’t want to be a UX team of one for the long-term.
(Apologies if you receive more than one of these.)

With the popularization of products and services characterized by user experience (abbreviated as UX thereafter) among customers, UX has become a hit in the profession so much so that there is now an enormous demand for UX talents even though most enterprises have already employed UX professionals or even established related departments. The ever widening gap between supply and demand of UX-related professionals, however, has propelled the engagement of many a non-professional in UX and the establishment of UX as a major in colleges and universities.
Intercom is going really well for us. So much so that we need help. Our design team previously consisted of myself & Eoghan. But we can't give design or UI the time it deserves any more. We've recently hired a fantastic visual designer, and we're looking to pair him with a fantastic UX person. The role is pure UX, no clients, pitches, or proposals. You'll be working with our visual designer, myself and Eoghan (CEO) to make Intercom the most usable beautiful web application in the space.
