  • Collaborate with visual designers, design engineers, technical partners and project managers
  • Occasionally direct the work of contractors or other UXAs in a supporting role
  • Contribute to Hot’s positive internal atmosphere, quality of work, and growth into new fields or industries
  • Speak and write about your work

 

Required Skills & Qualifications

  • Minimum 5 years experience in UX
  • Experience designing and conducting user research, including contextual inquiry and usability testing
  • Superb writing and presentation skills
  • An outstanding portfolio that demonstrates your approach to projects, quality thought, storytelling, and an ability to bring your ideas to life
  • Excellent, beautiful, thoughtful deliverables
  • Ability and willingness to sketch/use whiteboard in front of clients
  • Ability to articulate business strategy and branding issues, and to balance these with user needs and technological constraints
  • Demonstrated ability to manage clients, communicate persuasively, and resolve issues
  • Experience working in small collaborative teams
  • Familiarity with technical issues and ability to work constructively with engineering teams
  • Great attitude and ability to handle change
  • Ability to work independently, prioritize, and solve problems proactively
  • Creativity and attention to detail

 

Relevant Experience

  • Background in graphic design, writing, product and business strategy
  • Experience with experiences beyond the browser – mobile, tablets, audio interfaces, multi-touch, widgets, desktop software
  • Experience in the publishing industry
  • Experience with multi-touch applications (iPhone, iPad, Andriod, etc.)
