Summary

We are seeking a highly motivated UX Designer with a strong understanding of interaction design, to contribute in shaping the user interface of our product and strengthening our online presence across web and mobile devices. We drive our product by the user experience, and need someone with the skills who can keep up and push the vision forward.

You will work directly with other members of the product team to build user interaction designs and high fidelity visual designs for both web and mobile. You will get to work in an exciting and engaging agile startup-like environment where you will be encouraged to expand your skills, test your creative boundaries, share new ideas, and most importantly – have fun.


What You'll Be Doing
  • Collaborating with the product team to prototype solutions to customer problems, with varying degrees of fidelity. Prototypes can be anything from quick sketches, wireframes to interaction flow diagrams or even clickable HTML/CSS/Javascript.
  • Pairing up with a product manager to conduct user testing sessions. You'll meet frequently with customers to share your prototypes with them and get their feedback. You'll take that feedback, quickly iterate, and go back to the customer with your new ideas. Rinse and repeat until you find just the right way to solve their particular problem.
  • Helping product managers define new features, or whole products, for our engineering team. We try to keep documentation to a minimum and rely heavily on our prototypes for guidance, so you play a critical role here.
  • Developing high fidelity visual designs (PSD) based on the interaction design requirements.
  • Overseeing the development of your concepts by our engineering team. Answering questions, clarifying designs, and sometimes jumping into the code yourself to polish a few details are all par for the course.
  • Educating the product team about design principles and helping further grow our design culture and community here at Nimble.

An Ideal Candidate
  • Your visual design skills are nothing to sneeze at. Interaction design is the most important discipline for this role, and you likely won't be asked to redesign our entire product line. However, we don't have separate visual designers and you will frequently be asked to apply the Nimble creative vision and aesthetic to new design patterns and use cases. Your efforts here should not disappoint.
  • You get excited to work on a product that people love using. We're building software that real companies are using and we need you to contribute to our evolution. You must be excited about your role! Anybody can build something that's "good", but true passion breeds "incredible".
  • You like to deliver real results, and work fast. You know how to iterate quickly on concepts, and think in terms of "hours and days," not "weeks and months." Bonus if you have familiarity and experience with many of the techniques for rapid and collaborative design associated with Lean UX.
  • You're technical. So, you've got some design and prototyping chops but do you have the ability to bring your work to life? This is a great opportunity to expand your front-end skills, and learn from an exceptionally talented team. You'll need to be able to build those great experiences with HTML, CSS, and Javascript. Bonus if terms like Backbone.JS and CoffeeScript, not only make sense to you, but excite you.
  • This goes without saying, but you must be able to communicate your ideas and designs with the team. On occasion, will have to receive feedback from our customers. For that reason alone, you must have excellent written and oral communication skills.
  • Curiosity, creativity, and ambition. Expensive diploma or not, true talent isn't always something that can be taught in school. Ideally you would have done similar work formally or informally; but maybe you're gifted, self taught or have been freelancing for years. If you think you have what it takes let us know.

At Nimble, we strive to help business professionals build deeper relationships with people that matters and ultimately make them more successful – do you want to be part of this journey? If so, send your resume to us. You must include a design portfolio, which contains not only finished product but also showcases your thought process and mastery of interaction design for Internet applications.
