Senior UX Designer

Launch is an agency that creates digital products and experiences. But that doesn’t tell the full story of how we apply strategy and creative thinking. We solve complex problems through research, analysis, and firsthand conversations with users. Our multidisciplinary team brings research and strategy together, building user-friendly designs that engage and inspire.

Our Culture

Role

As Sr. UX Designer, you focus on delivering user-driven digital experiences, basing your decisions on a solid foundation of research, business strategy, and well-cultivated professional intuition. You understand the user because you know how to identify and analyze quantifiable and qualitative aspects of the user journey.

  • Stay abreast of industry best practices for UX design and processes.

  • Champion principles of usability and user-centered design.
  • Develop personal philosophies and share those insights.

  • Experience collaborating with cross-functional teams: visual design, content and development.
  • Experience managing expectations of and presenting to internal and external stakeholders.
  • Exceptional presentation, communication, and organizational skills.
  • 4+ years of experience in UX – agency experience is a plus.

UX Research and Strategy – 50%

  • Collaborate with team members and clients.

    – Participate in regular work reviews with designers and strategists ahead of internal and client reviews.

UX Design
– 50%

  • Create wireframes based on thoughtful consideration of user needs that were learned from research, or in the absence of good research, your well-cultivated instinct as a designer. (We typically use Sketch but are considering Figma)
  • Annotate wireframes with well-articulated, highly detailed but simple instructions that anyone can follow. Show that you have consistently discovered and solved edge cases.
  • Create bespoke component libraries (or consider existing libraries) so that your designs don’t create unnecessary inconsistencies and inefficiencies.
  • Prototype creation in Figma or Invision.

Additional Details

Launch is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.

  • Reports to UX Director.
