Lead UX Designer
- Redwood City, CA
Our client, a pre-IPO start up in the machine data analytics space is looking for a slightly nerdy senior level designer who is obsessed with data. The nerd in you performs contextual inquiry interviews with technical customers and quickly understands new concepts. The designer in you synthesizes the information, explains it with relevant metaphors and whiteboards it beautifully. We want to hear your ideas for distilling complex use cases into simple tasks that empower our users.
The UX Design Team creates consumer-level user experience for complex data visualizations and information design of enterprise-level capabilities. That sounds complicated, and it is. But our team is close-knit, and we swarm frequently on all of the design problems we’re facing.
Our product is a real-time continuous intelligence platform. We have over 1000 customers and we analyze 100+ petabytes of data daily. When a customer experiences an outage, they turn to our platform to analyze the machine data and figure out what happened. Our product aids the user in making critical decisions and responding rapidly.
Along with your resume and portfolio (required), please send along your favorite .gif or Boomerang. No cover letters,please.
