KIXEYE is currently looking for a kick-ass UX Designer. You’ll get to work with all our game teams, as well as help support our new platform. You’ll be responsible for requirements gathering and creating wireframes/flows to support our UI team in the creation of assets for all of our products. It also goes without saying that you need to fight for the user day in and day out!
What you get to do everyday:
Provide comprehensive designs for all our games’ new features, specifying layout, functionality, and flow
Gather design requirements from appropriate stakeholders
Advocate and lead UX discussions; achieve best-possible designs
Drive design thinking and champion the UX vision across the organization
Brainstorm, research, wireframe, design and refine user experiences within product requirements and deadlines.
Collaborate with other designers, program managers, and engineering teams, working to prioritize UX design
Create wireframes, workflow diagrams, mockups and design specifications required for proper implementation.
What you bring to the role:
3+ years of experience in applied UX design, Strong written and verbal communication skills
Solid portfolio demonstrating your UX skills with examples of process used on projects (please specify work done individually or with a team)
A passion for UX and keeping current with recent usability trends and best of practices.
Experience working with Balsamiq, Omnigraffle, Visio or other UX wireframing tools.
You must be comfortable with a motion driven process. UX design is highly iterative and includes multiple rounds of brainstorming and revisions to find the perfect solution
Exceptional communication skills with the ability to present and explain UX ideas and concepts effectively whether verbally, written or through visuals
Open minded and collaborative approach to UX with the ability to take direction and constructive feedback and use it to create easy to use solutions
Ability to produce in a fast paced environment with a dedication to iterate in pursuit of the best UX solutions
Self-motivated worker with ability to prioritize and manage work load to meet critical project deadlines
