About the Role
At Camber Creative, we're seeking to expand our team to include a senior-level UX/UI Designer on contract, with the opportunity to advance to a full-time employee position if it's a good mutual fit. In this role, you will set a world-class standard in design for Camber’s and our client’s digital products.
The ideal candidate brings with them professional experience as the directly responsible individual for UX and UI deliverables across a variety of native mobile app, responsive web app, and website experiences, including B2C, B2B, and internal digital products.
The right person for this role is a perpetual student of the design craft, capable of context switching between 3-5 unique projects at a time, an excellent written and verbal communicator, an empathetic listener and collaborator who is adaptable and biased towards action and maximizing user- and business-value through sound design practice.
UX/UI Designers are expected to be the primary individual contributors to design deliverables on the projects they are assigned. At minimum, they should have a demonstrated ability to collaborate with our internal cross-functional team as well as client stakeholders to:
- conduct UX research and tests, gather and synthesize data, present findings and justification for design recommendations
- formulate data-driven and goal-oriented design approaches and tasks
- produce and defend UX and IA deliverables such as roles/personas, site/screen maps, user flows, and wireframes
- create new user interface style guides, components, and/or design systems OR leverage and customize existing ones, and know when each approach is most prudent for any given product, stage of the product life cycle, and level of investment
- design and defend high-fidelity user interface design mockups and clickable prototypes
- champion and follow accessibility standards such as a11y and WCAG in digital product designs
- ensure high-quality front-end implementation of designs with specifications, annotations, and handoff/q&a with engineers
Special consideration will be given to candidates who can also code their designs (visual front-end development and interactions), with the possibility of this becoming a Design Engineer role, but this isn’t a firm requirement for this position. Other nice-to-haves for this role include deeper UX research experience, UX copywriting skills, motion design, illustration skills, experience with visual development platforms like Webflow, and/or significant CMS knowledge with Drupal or WordPress.
- This is not your first rodeo. You've been the Directly Responsible Individual for the responsibilities listed in this description before in your professional career.
- You work well in a self-directed environment. You're used to creating your own path based on objectives, and pitching and defending your ideas tactfully.
- You are comfortable working in an all-remote and asynchronous-first environment with a heavy focus on written and other asynchronous communication.
- You are an excellent collaborator that your teammates and project stakeholders love to work with.
- You are familiar with a range of user experience best practices, patterns, and guidelines as well as UI styles and frameworks, and can call upon them to solve for most any design case. For example, familiarity with Apple’s Human Interface Guidelines from Apple, Google’s Material Design framework, Nielsen’s 10 Usability Heuristics for User Interface Design, various psychological principles of design, as well as inclusive and accessible design guidelines such as A11y, WCAG, and ADA compliance criteria.
- It helps if you are a digital product junkie, on top of the movements in the industry, and know when to tastefully lean into vs away from trends depending on the product, users, and desired outcomes.
Camber is a people-first, principles-driven digital product agency. We’re a remote, US-based team with an asynchronous-first approach. We design, build, and grow digital products that not only delight and enrich the lives of their users, but also produce meaningful business results for our clients.
