UX Designer


We are looking for a mid-level UX designer to work with our client’s e-commerce business.  Candidates need minimum of two years work experience. We are looking for someone who is self-motivated and is able to work with a team early on in a project, plan and identify requirements, and see a project through to completion


About thelab

We’re an agency of makers with deep expertise in solving creative and
technology challenges. Our focus is on making better work to help brands work better. From branding & design, to software builds, large-scale ecommerce or anything in between, thelab mixes inspiration and hard work to produce results that mean business. Oh, and we host a mean barbecue too.


We will be

An awesome place for you to grow and learn. We stay open-minded about ideas and make sure our technology is always up-to-date, because we believe the best work gets made when we evolve our skills together. thelab is large enough to get an amazing variety of work, but small enough to stay flexible and work with smaller brands and startups too—we even have a few products of our own. You’ll work on a lot of different kinds of projects, and you’ll do it with reasonable timelines, surrounded by an inclusive community who wants to see you succeed.  And you’ll generally finish your day with plenty of time left over to meet your friends for a drink—or grab one with your new team.



You are

  • Not afraid to fail and always looking to learn from those failures
  • Able to understand different approaches and comfortable learning/using both newer and older tech when it’s a better fit

  • A keen problem-solver, and an empathetic advocate for the end user. 
  • Passionate about using research to drive decision making.
  • Able to think both creatively and analytically, with a strong attention to detail.
  • Able to juggle multiple projects.
  • Not afraid of experimentation – you will analyze user feedback and activity, and iterate to enhance the user experience. You are comfortable changing direction based on team and client feedback.


Responsibilities


  • Create and present wireframes, user journeys, sitemaps, and user flows.
  • Lead stakeholder and user interviews.
  • Write test plans, create prototypes, and conduct user testing.
  • Synthesize research findings and present to business stakeholders.
