The Hired Guns, New York, NY, United States

The Hired Guns are seeking a true visionary—a design-driven Director of UX, Mobile App and Omnichannel for one of the country’s top ten e-commerce retailers.

The Nitty Gritty
The backstory on the organization and why they need to hire you!

This digital retailer/e-tailer is the largest in NYC and one of the top ten in the country, driving ten consecutive years of double-digit growth. The role of Director of UX, Mobile App and Omnichannel is a unique opportunity to lead a team revolutionizing a new type of customer-centric mobile and omnichannel shopping experience.

The foundation of your UX practice is a keen artistic eye with a talent for building beautiful projects that are technologically groundbreaking. You’re a thought leader as much as you are a team leader, and you’re prepared to steer and inspire a group of talented designers to produce next-level experiences for this iconic brand’s loyal customer base.

If this sounds like an exciting opportunity, we want to meet you.

Why You?
How you’ll know if you’re a fit…

High-impact projects don’t intimidate you, they excite you. You aren’t satisfied with utilitarian design—it has to be gorgeous too, or you won’t sign off on it.

Where some people see problems, you see possibilities. You’re up for a challenge and thrive on leading teams through complex design dilemmas. You have ten years of UX/UI design experience across consumer mobile apps and responsive web experiences, with exceptional analytical, strategic, and conceptual design skills.

Human-centered design is your guiding principle, and you have an innate ability to identify unmet user needs (building business in the process) but you also know that research drives results. Whether you’re discussing analytics with a stakeholder or talking tech with a developer, your communication skills are unparalleled.

Along with your artistic sensibility, you also possess a fierce ability to leverage metrics and use quantitative research to inform and validate your design decisions. Your portfolio shows both your exquisite design sense and an uncanny ability to craft seamless customer experiences.

The Inside Skinny
Why you should quit your job right now and join this organization!

We’ve learned a few key things working with this company over the past year: they’re determined to out-innovate the competition, they are driven to do things right, and they don’t skimp on the resources to execute. This combination means you’ll have an opportunity to put your stamp on the organization and establish your place as a leader in your field.
