Fort Lee, NJ
Director of User Experience
At MyRegistry.com, we believe that outstanding design and a great user experience is
critical to the success of our products. Our developers built a great
technology platform – and today we are the leading online gift registry in the marketplace -- but need your help to take it the next level.
You'll have a huge impact on our current and future software projects. Starting on day one,
you'll be responsible for redesigning our flagship product. We think there's lots of
opportunity to make it simpler, easier to use, and more engaging. You'll work on all of our upcoming projects and products from concept through
wireframes, user testing, design, ongoing iteration, improvement and redesign.
This position is for full-time employment, on-site at our office in Fort Lee, NJ.
What We’re Looking For:
The right person for the job will have a track record of building remarkable user
experiences for the web. Your designs are awe inspiring, and you relish the idea of
transforming complex concepts and a myriad of data into drop-dead simple visuals and
interactions. For three or more years, you've focused on (or obsessed about) the following:
‣ User experience and interaction design ‣ Usability -- bonus points for involvement with user testing ‣
Information architecture -- including wireframes ‣ Graphic design
Additionally, You’ll Need:
A portfolio of great work that you're proud of. The earlier and later across the product
development process that your contributions extend, the better.
Strong understanding of the web technologies your designs will be implemented in,
primarily HTML and CSS. Ideally you'd be able to build out a prototype of new designs
yourself before the engineering team implements them.
Interest in working as part of an iterative, collaborative, ASP.net software development
process. You'll be able to work well alongside the developers team.
