User Experience Designer

at The Motley Fool (Alexandria, VA, USA) Full Time Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

Job Description:

Can you appreciate the elegance of a well designed submit button? Do you have strong opinions about IE6? Do you enjoy trying to guess at the hex color of a link? If you answered yes, and if you believe a primary use of Photoshop is to super-impose your co-workers faces on to other bodies, then do we have a job for you.

As a User Experience Designer you will be a core member of a small team of highly talented designers responsible for the aesthetic, usability and interactivity of The Motley Fool websites. Leveraging your experience, and that of a stellar team of fellow designers and developers, you will create engaging and intuitive online experiences to delight our customers.

• Participate in the coding and implementation of the visual solution you’ve provided to your team.

• Be a champion for users’ needs from requirements gathering through solution launch.

• Contribute to the continual refinement of The Motley Fool design process.

Core Competencies:

• 3+ years of web design experience, preferably for content-driven sites

• Strong, clean interaction and visual design sense

• Ability to rapidly sketch out ideas as rough workflows and layouts on the fly.

• Proficiency with Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign

• Proficiency with hand-coded table-free HTML and CSS.

• Excellent visual, verbal and written communications skills

• Excellent leadership, communications and teamwork skills

• Excellent problem solving ability

Preferred Capabilities:

• Bachelor’s degree, preferably in design, visual communications or related field

• Familiarity with JavaScript and Prototype library

• Comfortability with coding in XML/XSL

• Experience designing for and coding with ASP.NET

• Experience with the Agile process and Scrum environment

• A love of investing and The Motley Fool (if you don’t have it already, you will).
