About You

You’re based in Austin, TX or will be imminently arriving.

You are a highly collaborative systems thinker who is chomping at the bit to throw yourself into messy problem spaces. Part anthropologist, part interaction designer, you are deeply familiar with and can cleverly articulate the value of design and the core components of the design process.

You think in terms of system flow and understand the thought processes of humans as they relate to technology and products.

You help fully understand a problem space and product opportunity in light of the needs of end users. You communicate with words, models, and prototypes of varying fidelity.

You are comfortable with ambiguity and work to tame the chaos of messy problem spaces.

You have a background in one or more of the following fields: Interaction Design, Human Factors, Qualitative/Ethnographic Design Research.

You can articulate best practices in the form of interaction design heuristics and are familiar with a wide range of interaction design patterns for desktop and mobile applications.

You are comfortable expressing your ideas through sketched wireframes and models as well as thorough and compelling written communication.

You have a good attitude, even when projects do not turn out exactly the way you’d like.

You are a great listener and ask clarifying questions before offering a solution or opinion.

You are willing to admit when you do not have the answer to something.

You are excellent at respectfully disagreeing with team members and clients, in a way that makes them love and appreciate you even more.
