Avanade Inc. UX Designer | Sr. Consultant - Digital Studio (Los Angeles) in Chicago, United States

About the role

The user experience (UX) team at Avanade is focused on work related to architecture, usability and content areas.

As a senior member of our UX design team, you will be an established expert in your field, experienced in applying exceptional skill to achieve business goals. As well as strong technical involvement and expertise, senior consultants are team leads - overseeing and checking others’ work.

In this role, your emphasis will be on activities within your own area of expertise, working and making decisions independently on approach and actions.

Daily, this means you will:

  • Develop user profiles, with emphasis on human error control, display issues, visual interaction, physical manipulation and task and objective analyses

  • Develop and apply software design and usability processes for investigating technical problems

  • Provide solution usability, evaluation and support to project teams – including the analysis investigation of applications or systems including tactile methods, visual graphics, web, multimedia, voice response and conversational user interaction

  • Help develop design concept and implementation, providing input on user design considerations

  • Produce specifications describing user requirements and internal structures for product or solution in development

About you

You will likely have more than 4 years’ relevant UX experience. Although not a requirement, we would prefer you to have some management experience as well.

You should have a Bachelor’s degree in Interaction Design, Human Factors, Computer Interaction, Behavioral Psychology, Human/Computer Interaction, or similar degree. In some circumstances, specific experience may be a substitute for a degree. A Master’s qualification in a related discipline is an advantage.
