Extractable has an immediate opening for a mid- to senior-level
Information Architect or Interaction Designer. We offer work on websites
and web applications for top brands in a dynamic environment with savvy,
creative professional colleagues.
As a member of our Strategy group, you will work in multidisciplinary
teams to create smart, innovative solutions for our clients. Our small
firm environment will require you to be a jack-of-all-trades when it
comes to web strategy, from information architecture to interaction
design.

Your responsibilities will include:
* Contributing to prospective client pitch efforts
* Participating in discovery interviews and documenting client
requirements
* Conducting competitive audits and market research
* Developing user personas and scenarios to clarify results of
user research and focus the team's design efforts on the needs of key
users
* Building navigation models, sitemaps, process flows, wireframes,
and prototypes that account for multiple users and varying
circumstances, and that help communicate and demonstrate strategies to
clients
* Collaborating with design, development, production and project
management team members to ensure the execution of documented strategies

Qualifications
* Detailed knowledge of user experience best practices
* A strong attention to detail and exceptional organization, logic
and analytical skills
* The ability to ask appropriate questions and communicate
effectively to a broad range of people: designers, executives, business
development and technical staff
* Experience in developing interactive products with an
interactive agency (3+ years or equivalent for consideration, 6+ years
for senior roles)
* Proficiency in a variety of design tools such as Visio,
InDesign, Illustrator, or Photoshop, as well as the MS Office suite (of
course!)
* Excellent oral and written communication and presentation skills

Attributes we seek
* Intellectual curiosity and a passion for lifelong learning
* Enthusiasm for the web as a medium of communication and
interaction
* The ability to take pleasure in solving complex problems
* Flexibility: the ability to function as a generalist and learn
new skills as needed, and the ability to solve strategic problems and
nail down tactical details
* A sense of humor
* Grace under pressure
