Defining and Informing the Complex Field of User Experience (UX)

We are looking for a UX Designer to create Quantcast’s full suite of online reporting and insights products from the ground up. Quantcast Advertise is positioned to revolutionize the $18 billion display advertising market, and the reporting dashboard is a critical component to solidifying our leadership position in the industry.

As a UX Designer at Quantcast, you will be involved in every aspect of the product process from the high-level product strategy and vision to the tactical design-measure-iterate cycle. You will be responsible for the following:

  • Partner with Product Management to define the product direction for your area, design the experience and measure ongoing improvements
  • Design simple solutions for complex workflows and large datasets; invent useful ways to tell stories with data and extract meaning from noise
  • Create all design deliverables from site structure to flows, wireframes, high fidelity comps, prototypes and style guides
  • Understand best practices for web and mobile development and partner with Engineering to create products that are flexible, scalable and implemented to specs
  • Collaborate with other designers to create a cohesive cross-product experience
  • Work with User Research to identify opportunities where research can inspire, optimize or evaluate the design; in the absence of research, have an intuition for what will work well
  • Be an expert on your product area, your users, your competitors, and the design of big data
  • Manage multiple channels of stakeholder input and user feedback; be adept at balancing conflicting inputs and finding elegant solutions

Requirements

  • Be passionate about technology, data, design, users or anything really…we love passion!
