DIRECTV.com is seeking to hire a Senior / Lead UX Designer for its Web and Mobile Digital Media Group. Our team’s focus is on collaborative, cutting-edge and intelligent design methods in cross-platform experiences – so this role requires a person who is constructive, charismatic, passionate, and committed to informed problem solving, flexibility, scalability, and innovation.

Working closely alongside the UI design and digital strategy teams, the Senior/Lead UX Designer helps to contribute to and supporting the creative and iterative process – as well as establish and carry out the experience design deliverables for a project.

In addition, this person will be an integral part in developing, defining and growing the user experience team and we are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated self-starter who is eager to help to define his or her own role and contribution.

We are primarily looking for:
· Candidates who have experience designing for the following are preferred: highly trafficked consumer-driven websites, technology, cross platform experiences, entertainment experiences and agency experience
· An ability to create and maintain functional and design specs and other applicable documentation in conceptual, analysis, and tactical phases of a project
· Strong knowledge of interaction design processes and methodology, particularly as applied to cross platform products
· Someone who is driven and eager to dive in and carve out their own role and contribution to the team
· Someone who is flexible, invigorated by multiple projects and a fast paced environment, and highly collaborative

In addition we are also searching for two supporting UX designers with similar qualifications.

These positions are onsite in our NYC office, long term contract to perm for the right individual. Pay is commensurate with experience, but DIRECTV offers highly competative salaries and rates, as well as benefits upon full-time hire.

Thanks!
-Megan Ellis, Creative Director, User Experience (DT alum ’05)
