Job Description

Publicis Sapient is looking for an Experience Designer who can design interfaces and workflows for a complex enterprise application that impacts the lives of millions of people.

Candidates local to the DMV area are strongly preferred. Post-pandemic, team members may be required to spend some time working on-site with our client in the Washington, DC area to enable first-class delivery of services, along with occasional travel to other client locations across the country.

The Skills We Need for the Project

Most of your work will focus on prototyping, interaction design, and user research, with a bit of information architecture and content strategy mixed in. You'll conduct discovery to research existing and new features for the application. Interactive prototypes will be your primary deliverable, created using components from a design system. You’ll also help facilitate developer and stakeholder reviews and help design and run usability tests, reporting to client leadership on findings. As a UX Designer, you'll have opportunities to receive feedback on your work and grow your skills as a designer from other members of the design team.

You'll need to be a strong communicator as the complexity of this system requires constant coordination with other designers, developers, business analysts, and client stakeholders. You will help define problems and design solutions to those problems. You will be expected to present a clear rationale for your design choices based on your understanding of the requirements, technical constraints, and business and user needs. 

Successful team members are collaborative, resourceful problem-solvers who can adapt quickly to changing priorities and fast-paced work during standard business hours.

  • Collaborated with client stakeholders, developers and business analysts to define business problems and prototype solutions
  • Participated in requirements-gathering sessions
  • Designed user interfaces for large-scale web-based applications where efficient task completion and fulfillment are critical for business success
  • Created interactive prototypes using tools such as InVision, Sketch, Flinto, Framer, and/or Axure
  • Analyzed user flows from start to finish
  • Collaborated with delivery teams in the discovery, implementation and release phases of an application or feature
  • Presented concepts to clients and internal stakeholders and explained your design choices
  • Evaluated existing sites and applications in terms of their usefulness, usability, efficient task completion, and layout
  • Participated in usability testing sessions
  • Developed personas/segmentations based on research findings
  • Requirements:
  • Must be a U.S. Citizen; Eligible for U.S. Government Clearance
