This is a fantastic opportunity to work in a creative and inspiring environment. Our client helps build digitally driven businesses for some of the largest and most demanding companies in the world. Experience Leads play a critical role. They are the nerve center of our design process and take a hefty share of responsibility for the success of large-scale projects. Experience Leads oversee an interdisciplinary team through research, strategy development, concepting, product definition, and design.

A successful Experience Lead is an innovative designer, a decisive product owner, a confident manager, a helpful mentor, a team player, and a skilled client partner all rolled into one. In addition to project work, Experience Leads manage and mentor a small group of Interaction Designers who may or may not be assigned to their project.
