WASHINGTON, DC

Senior UX/UI Designer

Description
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 as fascinated by data points as you are by pixels? Does working in a spreadsheet feel as comfortable as working in a design system? Are you deeply curious about why people do what they do, and how to get them to do what you want through design? 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/UI Designer to add to our team. There’s no perfect candidate, but you’ll come close if you can:
Responsibilities
  • 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 understanding large volumes of information, then using the resulting insights to drive project goals and design decisions.

  • Take the lead on projects from beginning to end. This means tackling the research and discovery process, data analysis, strategy development, user flows and journeys, card sorting, information architecture and site maps, user testing, wireframes, and refined concept development for client presentation.

  • Thoroughly understand our clients’ business objectives, user needs, and technical requirements, then translate those into designs that are compelling, engaging, and easy to use.

  • Collaborate closely and effectively with your teammates using excellent communication skills, emotional intelligence, and the ability to speak clearly about UX and UI design to 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 both UX and UI design.

  • Knowledge of the development process and familiarity with: design and development best practices, HTML, CSS, microinteractions and animations, and content management systems such as Drupal and Wordpress.

  • Expert-level proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite, Sketch, Marvel, Zeplin, and other relevant UX/UI design tools.

  • Experience in a fast-paced work environment, with exceptional time management skills. Have you worked at an agency before? Fantastic!

Applicant Eligibility:
What we can offer you is the chance to work on incredible projects for global clients that help make the world a better place. Plus:— A smart, dedicated team to learn from and grow with, who’ll always have your back
— Flexibility in working from home vs. the office (hey there everyone outside the DMV!)
— An individual, yearly professional development budget
— Medical/dental/vision insurance, 401(k) with matching, flexible PTO, and all the standard holidays off
Please note, only candidates who are US citizens or able to work on a permanent basis without visa sponsorship are eligible to apply. No recruiters or staffing agencies please.
