UX Strategist

Job description

Threespot UX Strategists gather, define, and clarify business and audience objectives. They are highly-skilled at reviewing an organization’s website architecture and content to identify challenges and opportunities for improvement.

Informed by research, they synthesize, translate, and document their understanding into effective and intuitive digital experiences that meet audience and business goals. They are thoughtful individuals who make decisions with a finite amount of information and then can visualize and explain the design implications of those decisions.

Since 1999, Threespot has been building digital solutions for clients. Somewhere along the way, we discovered that we value making a difference as much as we like making things. Since then, we’ve dedicated our time and talent to help those, and only those, who are committed to helping others.

If you want to work for clients who are making a difference, and not just a profit, we should talk.

Requirements

  • Formal education is not a prerequisite, however we do require real-world work experience to qualify for this position
  • Demonstrated experience producing written and visual information architecture work products (via a portfolio or during the interview process)

Responsibilities

  • Produce UX documentation including content models, site maps, user requirements, personas, user flows, content migration plans, usability testing reports, and user stories that communicate site/application structure and organization

  • Prepare and conduct workshops for groups of varying sizes and composition both in-person and remotely — engaging participants from internal client stakeholders to potential audience groups
  • Clearly communicate findings, ideas, and rationales verbally, visually, and in written form to internal teams and clients
  • Translate user and stakeholder research into strategic and tactical recommendations
  • Work collaboratively with others on the project team to craft best-fit solutions

Bonus Points

  • Passionate about user-centered design methods and experience with direct user research, including usability testing and contextual inquiry
  • Organized with a keen attention to detail
  • Experience in working on multiple projects simultaneously
  • BS/BA in a related field a plus

Benefits
