Open 6 week contract-mid level UXA-Midtown

From: Laura
Sent on: Monday, August 16, 2010 3:58 PM



My client is one of the most respected names in publishing and is seeking a mid level contractor for a 6 week contract.   


The role: User experience architect

  • Experience as an architect on the launch or redesign of at least one large, consumer-facing web site, covering all stages of design through to launch
  • Experience with a major online brand
  • Experience with web applications that involve complex use cases and conditional user flows
  • Fluency in usability and design evaluations, and the ability to convey recommendations effectively
  • Excellent team skills, highly collaborative
  • Experience with IA/interaction design for web 2.0
  • Consulting skills – the ability to be insightful and diplomatic in guiding others through design decisions
  • Experience applying user-centered design in an agile environment
  • User test facilitation with externally recruited candidates on designs at various stages of finish

Having any of the following is a plus...

  • The ability to execute Photoshop mock-ups that are based on an existing detailed style kit and design kit (new visual design concept work not required)
  • Experience working with Drupal or other open-source CMS system
  • Strong HTML, CSS and JSS skills for prototyping

The position will report to the Director of Customer Experience.

The work

We are in the process of transferring all retained pages and areas of the site from our current CMS (cold fusion) to Drupal. This project has been ongoing for over a year and will continue until it is complete. As the transfer takes place, page and interaction designs are placed into new templates and adapted to our new design framework. In some cases we are expanding and enriching that framework, and revising some portions of the design, in order to support our current strategy.

We are looking for contractor help for the following projects –

  • Registration and accounts: IA/interaction design and user testing
  • Online promotion of digital and mobile products: IA/interaction design
  • Pay barrier: IA/interaction design and user testing

We are likely to have another IA/interaction designer working on one or more of these. We have some resource for visual design on these, but the ability to provide visual designs for registration and accounts is going to be an advantage to hiring.

This is an immediate need so interested parties will please email their resume with work samples to me with availability to be reached and rate.  I’ll reply with a time we can calendar.


Warm regards,



Laura Hunter
