Senior UX/UI Designer
Headquarters: New York
We’re looking for a Senior UX/UI Designer (heavy on the User Experience part) with at least 5 years experience to join our Product team and help us elevate the quality of our products to the highest standards. The ideal candidate is passionate about their craft, an expert in uncovering customer needs, and capable of turning those insights into beautiful, accessible, compelling experiences. This person is ready to be a driver of user research, able to compile a solid experience strategy that includes interaction design and information architecture, and can execute that strategy through world class user interface designs. We’re practicing dual-track Agile to rapidly discover opportunities and get them in front of our users, and you’ll be expected to be a key player in that process.
Our product is aimed at the Jewish world and a deep knowledge of Judaism will be valued.
If you’ve got the passion and the chops let’s talk. Specific details about our vision for this role are:

- Conduct primary and secondary user research.
- Perform market and ethnographic research.
Product DesignExperience StrategyYou’ll be responsible for identifying insights by analyzing customer input and competitor data to inform our experience strategy. You’ll also translate experience objectives into solutions across our digital (and potentially physical) products. Discover and communicate your findings through typical documentation like Customer Journeys, User Journeys, and Current State Analysis. Design thinking experience would definitely catch our attention.
Interaction DesignAs a part of our Product team, you will take our customer insight and business needs and transform that understanding into user-focused and intuitive interfaces for our properties. Recognize and predict user interaction use cases, and account for the happy path, edge, and corner cases. Be able to work “gestalt principles” into a conversation in a real way, and watch our eyes light up.
Validate ideas and designs using split A/B tests and product performance.
- Measure recently released product features to establish benchmarks and to identify potential areas of improvement.
- Create rapid prototypes to validate design concepts with stakeholders and customers.
