You know your stuff:
  • Strong foundation in (X)HTML, CSS, Javascript, and XML

  • Intuitive and excellent visual eye
  • Robust portfolio with working samples
  • Your technical house is made of Adobe: Dreamweaver, Photoshop, and Fireworks
  • You know what an XSLT is and want to learn advanced coding languages

Inflection is searching for
an exceptional User Experience Designer to focus on our fastest growing
brands, Archives.com—family history made simple and affordable—and
PeopleSmart.com, an innovative and privacy-friendly people search
engine. The ideal candidate is a passionate believer in the power of
elegant web design, and gets giddy when there’s opportunity to enhance a
user’s experience. As a Senior User Experience Designer, you are a
critical conduit between product managers, engineers, and designers, and
you consistently rise to the challenge of taking diverse ideas and
turning them into pleasurable user flows.
 
If you’re a
compelling communicator with a razor-sharp eye for superb user
experience and a collaborative spirit, you’re what we want.
 
You flutter for flow charts:
  • Our products’ challenging flows and variables require a holistic
    vision of the overall user experience. You thrive where others may be
    unnerved.
  • You’re skilled at creating mockups and wireframes for visual
    designers from product managers’ specs, while bearing broader business
    objectives in mind
  • You intuitively bring simplicity to complex ideas
  • While you don’t need visual design skills, you’re as comfortable working with designers as you are with engineers
  • Even though you’re hyper-focused on organization, you believe the
    work day should be dynamic, ever-evolving, and filled with free food
 
You know data and feedback is the path toward success:
  • Our dedication to split-testing provides real-time analysis of user
    experience; this electrifies your passion for user satisfaction.
  • You can work within project parameters, and aren’t turned off when
    your idea doesn’t test as well as another. In fact, you’re inspired to
    improve the flow.
  • You’re an inveterate tester, comfortable gauging the experience of
    select customer segments, implementing eye-tracking concepts for
    cognitive engagement, and using a plethora of analytical tools.
 
You know your stuff:
  • You have at least 5 years of experience in user experience for web applications or small-to-medium-sized businesses
  • You’re passionate about building useful products that will wow our customers and help shape an industry
  • You want to play a central role in defining user experience for
    innovative products at a fast-growing and profitable company, and you’re
    committed to their long-term evolution
  • You’re as enthusiastic for big reinventions as you are for incremental iterations
  • Your portfolio is robust
  • If you have direct experience in search or large-scale e-commerce or genealogy sites, that’s a major bonus
  • Coding and management are not major requirements for the gig, but
    we have needs in those areas, so if that’s your focus, please still send
    your resume with the subject line “General Application.”
 
You want to do work that gets noticed:
  • With the explosion of software and apps, we know that great User
    Experience Designers are in big-time demand. That’s why we support the
    role vigorously
  • You’ll work with some of the Silicon Valley’s best engineers to execute your ideas
  • You’ll get the start-up vibe, but with big-company perks and stability
  • You’ll have a direct and notable impact at a critical point in our growth
  • You’ll be given the best tools and resources to do your job
