User Experience Lead

Cambridge, MA

 

We're looking for a User Experience Lead to integrate art, technology, and engineering to identify, create, and support the client and partner interactions with our products and brand. This is a senior role requiring a unique mixture of hands on skills with a high degree of conceptual understanding. 
 
You will be able to understand and apply concepts typically devoted to both the right (creative) and left (logical) sides of the brain, eg art and engineering. In doing so you will leverage skills from one skill group in application of another (i.e. able to execute good design choices while writing HTML). It will be expected that you can easily work across disciplines (i.e. switch between writing unit tests to illustrating iconography). As a senior staff member, it will be paramount that you can communicate effectively between teams of contrasting backgrounds and skill sets and work closely with senior stakeholders as well as users, clients, and partners.
