JOB: UX Lead Position, Washington, DC, Threespot Media, Full-time

Threespot User Experience Leads are responsible for defining successful high-level strategies, as well as tactical solutions, for client projects including multimedia, print, social media strategies, web sites, web-based applications, and technology solutions.
UX Leads gather, define, and clarify clients' business objectives, brand, and audiences, and translate this understanding into documentation that defines the "big idea" and guiding creative vision that will shape the entire project.

On a single project, the UX Lead will work closely with other members of the Interactive Strategist group, Project Managers, Art Directors, and Technical Leads in creating and maintaining the project vision; and works with the Project Managers to ensure we do the best possible work while remaining within budget and schedule. UX Leads work directly for the Director of User Experience, with ultimate supervision by the Director of Creative Services. Agency experience is a plus, but it's not necessary.
