UX Designer -- CraftJack
CraftJack is changing the way homeowners and home service providers connect and communicate. We build products that solve real problems and focus on the experience of the end user.
Like any great company, our success is built around a great team. We're seeking an experienced, energetic User Experience (UX) Designer – someone who understands that a great user experience leads to better brand recognition and repeat customers, and whose passion for creating user-centered products comes through in everything they design. This is your chance to impact how our homeowners and service providers interact every single day.
Our UX Designer will:
- Collaborate with business partners, graphic designers and developers to formulate, establish, and annotate the navigation, functionality, organizational structure and page-to-page flows of our user experience, and communicate designs through fully documented wireframes and prototypes.
- Conduct user research, including concept testing and usability testing, conduct stakeholder interviews, and lead competitive analysis discussions.
- Stay abreast of advances in user interface (both technical and experiential) and look for ways to appropriately integrate these advances into CraftJack products.
- Express user experience best practices across the company, and mentor colleagues and staff on best-in-class usability concepts.
- Prioritize and manage work to meet critical project timelines in a fast-paced, constantly changing environment.
- Serve as the primary point of contact responsible for driving major UX projects from conception to implementation, and deliver projects on time and within budget, exceeding expectations at every possible opportunity.
CraftJack is not your average startup – we're an operating brand of HomeAdvisor, the leading online marketplace helping homeowners and home service professionals connect. We're still a fast-growing company, and this is a great opportunity for you to get involved at an early stage.
Think of us as a startup without all the risks of working for a startup. That means no late (or missed) paychecks, no need to find your own expensive health insurance plan, no working for a tiny fraction of your market value. It also means no corporate atmosphere with strict dress code, no watered down coffee (we have a Keurig), and no stuffy bureaucracy to drown out your ideas. We value every team member and if we hire you, it's because we think you can do big things with us.
