User Experience Design Director - Design
Oracle in Seattle, WA
- Industry: Information Technology - UX/UI Designer
- Type: Full Time
We need thoughtful, talented, multi-faceted user experience designers who love empowering technology users with high quality interaction and visual design to bring their creative ideas and their hard work to join our team.
Here?s the kind of person we?re looking for.
You thrive on working well with others. You make the people around you better. You love to collaborate with designers, user researchers, engineers, product managers, executives, and inspire them to do their best.
You?re a full stack user experience designer. You look at interaction design, visual design and aesthetics, typography, motion, 3D, human factors, and more as tools in the UX designer?s toolkit. You may have strengths in some of these areas, and want to learn more in others, but you know how to talk about each and work with your colleagues to combine them all into an experience that delights.
You get stuff done.
You?re a fantastic storyteller. You know that our products tell our customers a story through the user experience. You won?t rest until that story is a compelling one.
You love rules and you know when to break them. You think systemically because you know that creating a coherent experience requires it. But you know when the system needs to expand to accommodate a user?s varied conceptual model. And you know when to do something completely unique to create an arresting and product-defining moment in the product that makes users ooh and aah.
You don?t already know everything and you love to learn. You?re inspired by helping users solve their problems. You love finding out you?re wrong. You consume large amounts of quantitative and qualitative data to constantly refine your assumptions.
And finally, you want to be part of creating dramatic and impactful change at a company that is committed to becoming a light unto others when it comes to user experience design.
You might have learned your craft via formal training or via on-the-job training. For most candidates, it?s a combination of both. As long as you?ve got experience and passion doing this work at the highest level, we?d love to talk to talk to you and see a portfolio of the work you?re most proud of.
What will you do as a user experience design lead at Oracle
?? ? ? You will be responsible for a team of designers that dives deep into one or more of our many products and be the company-wide design leader across several key feature areas or for an entire product.
?? ? ? You will collaborate closely with our partners in product management to understand the customers who use it, empathize with them, and imagine creative ways we can make their work lives dramatically better.
?? ? ? You will partner closely with your fellow designers to innovate by designing coherent, seamless, and emotionally resonant, state-of-the-art user experiences for our users.
?? ? ? You will work closely with your partners in engineering to take your pictures and turn them into reality.
?? ? ? You will partner closely with your colleagues in user research to get customer feedback on your designs, find out where you?ve improved their lives, and find out where you have more work to do.
?? ? ? You will learn, grow, and be challenged.
?? ? ? And sometimes, you will hit bumps in the road. But then you?ll remember, that you?re here to be a founding member of Oracle?s new design culture and help turn Oracle into the place you love to work and have one of the best professional experiences of your life.
