Description
This is a contract position.
Come show off your creative Web 2.0 design skills and passion for pixel perfect UIs—help define the user experience design and strategy for our online support tools.  You’ll work with our support, marketing, and IT teams on rebuilding the UI within our online support suite to improve usability through better design. A thorough understanding of typography, copywriting and general UI best practices is required.
Our ideal candidate can seamlessly switch from macro to micro, understanding the strategic value and business dynamics of collaboration across the organization, and is equally comfortable discussing (and iterating on) their prototypes in pixels and code. You’ll be working as part of the support site team, but operate well designing independently. You will deliver fully functional, static code for the designs of each screen you design.
When presenting to the team, you’ll discuss the user experience guidelines that influenced your design, provide specification documents, wireframes and document improvements—all based on your expertise and previous work.  This requires strong verbal, written and visual presentation skills.
Job Duties
  • Use an existing set of branding guidelines to design, build, and produce code to be used in production for over two dozen new screens for our forthcoming redesign of our online support site and new self service tools
  • Follow existing branding guidelines in your designs, while recommending changes to improve usability
  • Balance of good usability and typography with design and branding
  • Quickly learn how Omgeo’s customers interact with its site, and make use of this knowledge in the development of the best possible user experiences
Requirements
Skills and Experience
  • BA/BS Degree required, preferably in UI Design, HCI (Human Computer Interaction), or Graphic Design, although other relevant experience is just as valuable
  • A minimum of 4 years successful experience designing and building web experiences.  Financial Industry and Rich Internet Application (RIA) experience are both a pluses.
  • Certification and/or training (or other comparable experience) in UI design is a plus
  • Extensive knowledge of HTML, JavaScript (preferably also the jQuery framework), CSS and working knowledge of XML, ASP, and PHP
  • Experience supporting and scaling prototypes you’ve built in the past
  • Fluency in best practices for web-based information architecture, strong knowledge of usability principles and techniques
  • Proficiency with Adobe Creative Suite, namely Illustrator, Photoshop, and Dreamweaver—or your choice of HTML/CSS editor
  • Previous experience with user and password management workflows is a plus
  • Previous experience with CRM information (specifically Salesforce.com) is also a plus
  • You are a results driven individual who thrives on driving internal and external customer success
