The User Experience Designer role is unique, and for the right candidate it will prove an amazing opportunity. Employing the UX methodologies from Google and the UK web design firm, Clearleft, the position will own the entire end-to-end process of bringing new functionality to the site: from scoping the project with the business owners to wire-framing/prototyping a proof of concept to creating the interactive elements to shepherding the new functionality live into production.
Over the next two years, our goal is to create the most elegantly usable ecommerce websites so we're looking for someone who wants to both be part of a dynamic, creative team and have ambitions to be a rock-star UX designer.
The User Experience Designer should demonstrate a rich but versatile aesthetic, be a little geeky when it comes to usability, and intuitively understand and solve for the nuances of ecommerce design patterns. In addition, and quite significantly, the role needs to interface with our marketing and merchandizing teams to help them realize their business goals.
Meet with Marketing and Merchandising stakeholders to define functional solutions for business problems
Create wireframes or prototypes as proof of concept
Design interaction, look and feel
Write non-technical specification for programmers
BA/BS or MA/MS in Graphic Design, Human-Computer Interaction, Interaction Design, Human Factors or related field.
2+ years of experience in designing and prototyping for the web; ecommerce experience is preferred, but not required.

Strong Photoshop and Illustrator skills; high-fidelity prototyping experience is a plus.
Ability to write non-technical specs for programmers
Demonstrated ability to manage expectations, meet firm deadlines and thrive in a dynamic work environment.
Above all else: good intuition and a little quirkiness.
