Senior Interaction Designer (Contract)

at SYPartners

Location: New York, NY

SYPartners is looking for a Senior Interaction/User Experience Designer with at least 3 years of experience to join our Digital Products Team. The ideal candidate has a passion for the art and science of engagement—creating simple yet unique, human-centered experiences across mobile, web, and desktop applications—and is able to think across the entire system of a product.

As an interaction designer, while you design with a specific user in mind, you also rely on your experience, expertise, and intuition to imagine entirely new models of interactions which you then prototype, refine, and improve through user testing and agile design. You bring a deep understanding of technology (i.e. HTML5/CSS3, Javascript) and what can be done with it—and you have a creative vision and aspiration for what it could do, if pushed. You employ tried-and-true techniques (i.e. rich media storytelling) and emergent ones (i.e. game mechanics) to create emotional connections and deeper participation.

Your responsibilities include:
• Research and develop solutions for mobile, web, and desktop environments as well as other emerging platforms.
• Create user requirements specifications, personas, use cases, workflow diagrams, wireframes, storyboards, and design prototypes.
• Prototype low and high fidelity concepts—from paper-based to interactive.
• Create interactive prototypes directly in a technology (e.g. HTML5/CSS3).
• Conduct user tests and focus groups.
• Communicate research findings, conceptual ideas, technical concepts, and design with clarity and coherence.
• Work closely with development teams—from prototypes to packaged products—to ensure that design specifications are implemented.

All candidates should include a link to their portfolios or provide work samples.
