I have an open Requisition for a user interface prototyper, and I’m so excited that I can’t wait for the recruiter to get it on LinkedIn, so I’m posting it here. Please share with people whom you think would be a good fit! Interested parties can send reply here with a link to their LinkedIn profile or web site, or send resumes to EMCUSabilityTesting at EMC dot com.
The EMC User Experience Design team is dedicated to optimizing EMC’s products for the entire product life cycle, from up-front design to usability testing. (Plus, this team is pretty FUN!) We provide deep insight and understanding into user behavior, needs, and motivation throughout all phases of the design process from project conceptualization, to implementation and development. We work with customers, product managers, marketing, documentation, and product development teams to research and design usable and productive user experiences. We also help to create common user experience standards across EMC products and/or within product domains.
The Prototype Designer will work with a team of subject matter experts, interaction designers, visual designers, product managers and developers to create wireframes and prototypes for a variety of software products and solutions, and communicate them effectively in a fast-paced agile environment.
You will create high-fidelity user interface prototypes to be used for advanced customer feedback, usability testing, and for socializing the UX design to development for implementation.
You must demonstrate a strong understanding of EMC’s customers, products and user goals and behaviors in a complex enterprise domain, and contribute to interaction concepts that enable seamless, fluid, relevant and engaging experiences for users. You will also provide visual designs and large data visualizations for the products.
You will also drive the effort to create UI standards and toolkit components that embody those standards based on HTML5 and CSS, and work with brand guidelines to ensure designs are not only user friendly, but remain consistent with the rest of the products and EMC’s brand framework.
You will work with the UXD team to communicate and validate designs by creating wire frames and prototypes, and participating in the creation of usability test scripts and in usability testing.
You must exert significant latitude in determining the objectives of an assignment, anticipate change, and direct or redirect efforts accordingly. You must be able to employ the application of UXD principles, theories, and concepts and may contribute to the development of new theories and methods.
