Senior UI Designer & UX Strategist

As Axelerant’s Senior UI Designer & UX Strategist, you'll help us make design and user experience (UX) at the forefront of everything we do. You’ll envision how people experience our deliverables and bring their vision to life in a way that feels inspired, refined, and even magical. You’ll take on complex tasks and transform them into intuitive, accessible, and easy-to-use designs for people around the world—from the first-time user to the sophisticated expert.

Achieving this goal requires collaboration with teams of Designers, Researchers, Engineers, and Product Managers throughout the design process—from creating user flows and wireframes to building user interface mockups and prototypes. At each stage, you will anticipate what our users need, advocate for them, and ensure that the final product surprises and delights them.

We would like to follow a simple but vital premise in the consulting group: "Focus on the user and all else will follow." We're interested in our users and strive to learn everything we can about their behaviors, attitudes, and emotions to help define the products and experiences we create. As the first of our UX team, you’ll play an integral part in gathering these insights and then using them to inspire and inform design.

A Senior UI Designer & UX Strategist at Axelerant could progress to an Architect role within four years.

  • Bring designs to life. You'll create wireframes, prototypes, sketches, and high-fidelity mockups to communicate your designs from concept to final implementation.
  • Measure results. You'll use reporting tools to understand the impact of your designs and discover future ideas based on user feedback.
  • Work with many stakeholders to support UX and UI design needs for Axelerant and its clients

  • Technical chops. You should be familiar with HTML/CSS/JS and be able to work with our developers, as well as implement code yourself, as you both use these languages to realize your designs.
  • Great communication skills. You are an experienced data-focused storyteller with excellent communication skills who loves working directly with teammates to implement your work.
