Lead Interaction/UX Designer
Posted: Mar 20, 2017
We're in the business of making. We invent category defining user experiences, products and services for the world's most interesting brands. We are a reserved, highly selective studio built on a singular commitment to excellence. We are independent and march to the beat of our own drum.
At the heart of our work is the need to challenge the expected, confront accepted wisdom and push the boundaries of the possible. We are interaction designers, visual designers, materials scientists, digital engineers, biochemists, artists, designers, electronics experts, experience builders, taste-makers, iconoclasts, craftsmen (and women). Together, we make the stuff of tomorrow.
Native has the need for broadly experienced, exceptionally talented and quality-driven interaction designers to complement its rapidly growing digital design team. We need individuals fluent in the field of User Experience design with particular focus in the areas of user research / use case scenario development, information architecture and wireframe design flows.
You will work closely with a team of graphic and motion designers, who would visualize and animate the concepts you create. Native is engaged in the design and development for the most cutting-edge platforms, ranging from large screen multi-touch surfaces to mobile applications and in-car interaction experiences.
In addition, a lot of our work is in the exciting converging space between Interaction and Industrial Design offering experience beyond the usual confinements of the web.
What we're looking for:
Experience on a variety of target platforms with differing screen sizes and input methods (web, mobile, touch, physical, etc.)
Expert knowledge of user-interface design methodologies and processes
Knowledge around ethnographic research and validation methodologies a plus
Logical thinking to translate complex interactions into simple user experiences and flows
Being at the forefront of technological innovation and cultural trends
Understanding of graphic, motion graphic and product-related user interface requirements and trends
Delivering design work of exceptional quality on-time
Support user research activities such as planning, observations, interviews and synthesis
Develop user case scenarios and experience frameworks
Collaborate with the visual and motion design team as well as the Industrial Design team on convergent projects
Collaborate with industrial designers on design and integration of physical interaction elements
Liaise with developers to optimize designs for implementation
