Senior UX Designer

Insomniac Design is a global digital agency headquartered in Washington D.C., with offices in London, Bucharest and Chisinau.  We’re an agile, determined and innovative team organized by functional areas of expertise — Creative, Technology, Strategy, and Management. We specialize in human-centered design with deep focus on design thinking and digital transformation. 

Are you deeply curious about complex problems and how to solve them? Are Post-Its and Sharpies basically your favorite items in the world? Do you have a sketchbook full of not random doodles, but instead the angular shapes of hand-drawn wireframes? Then join us, where great work never sleeps. (Don't worry though, we do sleep, despite the name.)

NOTE: An online portfolio is an absolute must if you’re applying for this position. We’d love to see what you’ve got!

We’re currently looking for a standout Senior UX Designer to add to our team. There’s no perfect candidate, but you’ll come close if you can:
  • Approach complex user experience challenges with critical thinking, a thorough eye for detail, and the ability to see both the forest and the trees. Our work varies, but it frequently consists of large, multifaceted projects with lots of moving pieces. You’ll need experience digesting and understanding large volumes of information, then using the resulting insights to drive project goals and UX design decisions.
  • Take the lead on projects from discovery planning to wireframing. This means tackling the research and discovery process, data analysis, strategy development, user flows and journeys, card sorting, information architecture and site maps, wireframes, prototyping, user testing, and more.
  • Thoroughly understand our clients’ business objectives, user needs, and technical requirements, then translate those into intuitive information structures and wireframes that lead to compelling, engaging, and easy to use final products.
  • Collaborate closely and effectively with your teammates using excellent communication skills, emotional intelligence, and the ability to speak clearly about user experience to both internal team members and clients alike.
  • Take feedback like a champ — and distill and understand it from both internal and external stakeholders.
  • Mentor junior- and mid-level teammates and facilitate their learning by leading projects and teaching as you go.
Skills & Experience
  • 6+ years of experience in user experience design.
  • Knowledge of the development process and familiarity with: design and development best practices, HTML, CSS, and content management systems such as Drupal and Wordpress.
  • Expert-level proficiency in Sketch, Marvel, Zeplin, and other relevant UX research and design tools.
  • Experience in a fast-paced work environment, with exceptional time management skills. Have you worked at an agency before? Fantastic!
