Description

UX Lead

Virtusa is building a world-class UX team to research, design and build innovative mobile and web-based apps for its corporate clients, and we are excited to be expanding our practice.

Summary

You love designing apps that people love to use. In this role, you’ll take primary responsibility for leading a UX design team to create innovative, usable, and buildable phone, tablet, and laptop/desktop applications. You have a combination of hands-on design skills and the ability to guide a team to great results. You pride yourself on having some front-end technical know-how, which helps you understand the development implications of your design decisions and enables you to create prototypes to explore and illustrate ideas. Clients look to you for insight and leadership.

Responsibilities

· Solve design challenges. You have 12 - 15 years of deep experience in interaction design, information architecture, and/or visual design. While it's rare to find someone deeply skilled in all design disciplines, you are deep in at least two and have some skills in the third. You are also able to structure and draw insights from user research, create artifacts that illustrate how an app will look and work, and evaluate designs through usability testing. For example, you'll create annotated wireframes, visual design comps, user flows, and/or paper and interactive prototypes as necessary in order to explore ideas and document design decisions.

· Lead the design effort. You are able to direct, critique, and coach the UX team; participate in user research and analysis; and have experience structuring usability tests and interpreting results. You help teams deliver on time and on budget by managing scope and balancing business needs, user needs, and technical elegance/complexity.

· Work with clients. Clients look to you as a leader and expert. You are comfortable facilitating client discussions and defending design decisions to clients and the development team. With deep experience and strong consulting skills, you can handle challenging client relationships.

· Help sell. You assist with business development when needed: helping understand a client's needs; sharing points of view and potential solutions; presenting to senior client stakeholders; and assisting with proposals and statements of work.
