UX Engineer

Auction Edge’s products are a mixture of previously existing apps we gained through acquisitions and new product development. We’re looking to add a teammate who can help us improve what we already have, as well as lead UX efforts on new product development going forward.

Industry knowledge is, in no way, a prerequisite. We’ll get you up to speed. We’re looking for someone who has demonstrated customer empathy, data driven UX development and delighting users.

As an UX Engineer you will be working closely with Product Owners to provide UX expertise and later UI designs that communicate and achieve a shared vision. We are looking to hire in our Nashville, TN; Statesville, NC; Pensacola, FL or Spokane, WA office. Part of your job will be developing and testing those UX concepts with real users, and folding feedback into iterative improvements. You’ll also collaborate closely with dev teams in the hand-off of design assets, understanding of technical limitations, creative brainstorming and problem solving together, etc.

Responsibilities

Here are some examples of projects you might work on (all in collaboration with business stakeholders, end users, Product Owners, and developers)

  • Redesign an existing product UI

  • Redesign an existing but problematic feature within a product

  • Design a new feature within the context of an established product

  • Design an entirely new product (web app, native mobile app, or desktop app)

  • Establish style guidelines to be implemented across products for consistency

  • Conduct usability tests with our current products, and present findings to Product Owners to prioritize suggested improvements

Qualifications

  • You delight in wonderful user experiences.

  • You spend time thinking about “why” people do what they do, and you push to gain understanding of users motivations (even if they’re a completely different persona than you).

  • You often think about the way information architecture, narrative elements, color, layout, type, and animations guide you in an app or game. You’re interested in how to use that understanding to make people’s lives better, especially at work, while achieving business goals.

  • You’re excited but also a little jealous when you see another app creatively solve a UX problem you’ve been tinkering with for months. You’re always noting how other apps/sites you use in your own life can inspire your own work.

  • You might have a degree in design, UX or something similar, but it’s not a showstopper if you don’t. We care about your work and your process more than what you went to school for.

  • Two or more years experience in UX design.

  • Experience working in an Agile environment is a plus.

  • You’re comfortable working with remote teammates. That means you’re a great communicator, as much of our dialogue happens in typed chats or frequent video conferencing.

  • Ability and eagerness to travel to spend time with users and stakeholders, up to 25% of the time.

To Apply

Please provide your resume, cover letter, and link to your portfolio in a single document HERE.

In your cover letter we’d love to hear a little about your approach to one or two of the example projects listed above, and to UX in general. Walk us through your process.

Auction Edge offers competitive pay, excellent benefits, a culture of continuous improvement and opportunity for career advancement through continued company growth. Relocation assistance is not offered.
