As a Senior UX/Product Designer, you have strong empathy for the user experience and care deeply for design fundamentals.

  • You’ll work with team members to turn rough concepts into UX prototypes, refined interface designs, and pixel-perfect shipped products.
  • You will own the end-to-end design process and deliverables (including research, ideation, wireframes, mockups, and prototypes).
  • You will effectively conceptualize and communicate high-level design strategies and detailed interaction behaviors.
  • You will work in quick iterations and distill feedback efficiently.
  • You will collaborate effectively with an agile, multi-disciplinary team to evaluate design proposals and champion great UX in the face of technical constraints.
  • You will use your ability to define and test UX hypotheses.
  • You will continuously incorporate user testing and data into your iterative process.


The Expertise You’ll Bring:

  • You have at least 4 years professional experience as a UX/product designer; with expertise in information architecture.
  • You are familiar with progressive trends in web apps and UX best practices.
  • You have experience with prototyping tools (InVision).
  • You are an expert with digital design tools (Sketch).
  • You have a strong portfolio demonstrating past work experience and relevant, user-centered design solutions.
  • You have experience conducting user research and strong knowledge of qualitative research methodologies
  • You have a bachelor's degree in design or equivalent professional experience in design.

An Insider's view of SkyKick

What are some social events your company does?

We work hard, play hard. Leadership recognizes the unique contribution each employee makes at SkyKick, which is why throughout the year our employees and company success are celebrated and thanked with various social events, happy hours, and holiday events. My favorite has to be our Summer bash.

What does your typical day look like?

I enjoy the variety of work that comes with being a full stack developer. One day I’m implementing elegant user interfaces along side our design team and another day I’m squeezing memory optimizations out of a distributed microservice.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

When I first joined SkyKick in 2015 I was hired as an Agile Consultant to help figure out a flexible process for software development. Fast forward to today, I am the Director of Engineering- QA- where I oversee Quality Assurance, Agile Coaches and the release process.

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Because every migration project is unique, partners can run into challenges and complexities with unfamiliar migration scenarios. Helping partners identify, prepare for, and resolve potential issues with these migration projects can be challenging, but is always the most rewarding part of what we do.
