Job Description

Does inventing user experiences that tackle complex domain specific problems intrigue you?  Do intense collaborative design sessions with experts in software development sound exhilarating?  Do hard problems jazz you?   If so, Tasktop is the place for you.

 

Simplify the complexity.  That is our mantra at Tasktop.  The software we sell is in a fast growing B2B niche industry and is, well, complex.  But our customers love us because we simplify the complexity - focusing tremendous energy on really digging into how our users think and bringing to life user experiences that not only solve real business problems, but do so with flair and ingenuity - and, dare I say it, while having a lot of fun!!  

 

Tasktop recognizes the incredible importance of fantastic user experiences - not entirely common in our particular industry.  The right candidate will relish complex domains, collaborating with multidisciplinary teams, and innovating in our domain.  

 

Responsibilities

  • Craft innovative user experiences that simplify the complexity our customers face every day

  • Prototype and visualize business ideas - paying particular attention to understanding at a deep level some fairly complex technical aspects of what our customers need

  • Design and create high quality prototypes and wireframes at a very fast pace

  • Create both low-fidelity paper prototypes and high-fidelity digital wireframes

  • Create highly interactive prototypes to communicate design ideas (where necessary)

  • Collaborate with Product Managers, Business Analysts, Developers, and other Designers to iterate on design concepts and ideas

  • Communicate and specify final designs to Development and other audiences

 

Experience and Skills Required

  • Minimum of 3-5 years of professional experience delivering user experiences for software.

  • Self starter who can iterate at a very fast pace - this role requires someone with high energy who is comfortable “putting themselves out there” and working in a team of highly talented, hard driving product managers and developers.  

  • Demonstrated success in delivering high-quality user experiences for complex, data-rich software applications.

  • Ability to create or use interaction design pattern libraries - and an ability to articulate the reasoning for these choices

  • Clean visual design sense

  • Depth and experience in using Adobe Fireworks, Axure, Adobe Illustrator, Balsamiq or other tools for prototyping.

  • Some technical knowledge of HTML/CSS/JavaScript a plus (or at least being able to understand the tradeoff between design desire and complexity of implementation)

  • Comfortable working with remote teams

  • Experience working with Lean/Agile Development a significant plus.

  • Ability to effectively communicate both within the team and across departments - a successful candidate will be very comfortable reaching out to people and “over communicating” with enthusiasm

  • BS/MS In Human-Computer Interaction or Design-related field preferred. Any candidate with the right experience will be considered.

 

How to Apply

Please send your resume and cover letter to: careers@tasktop.com with the subject heading “User Experience Designer”. 

We thank all applicants for their interest, however only those candidates selected for an interview will be contacted.
