Whether it’s on a site, in an app, a retail experience, an interior space, Interaction Designers at Code and Theory focus on improving and innovating the user experience to its most effective form. You work closely with Experience Strategists (who focus on architecting the system of templates and modules) and Content Strategists (who handle the overarching site structure and taxonomy) to ensure a clean and flawless operation overall. 

WHAT YOU’LL DO

Each project is assigned an interdisciplinary pod from strategy, analytics, research, creative, technology, and production. While you are expected to work collaboratively, Interaction Designers should also:

  • Bring a high-level of creativity and creative problem solving to each project, and be comfortable with pushing boundaries 
  • Create informative and understandable wires and detailed annotations as well as construct prototypes to explain key interactions and flows to clients, designers and developers
  • Demonstrate proficiency with tools such as Sketch, AirTable, Confluence, Jira, Principle, Invision, Keynote AND any new industry related software (upon its release)
  • Commit to work and deliver on deadlines and be vocal if you don’t think it’s possible! A little pressure is good for production, but too much is detrimental for both you and your team at large. You can’t learn to lead if you’re falling behind yourself. 

ESSENTIALS

Besides an exceptional attention to detail, you should ideally have under your belt: 

  • 3-5 years of design experience - having an understanding of agency processes is beneficial for success, but not required
  • 2-3 large-scale, successful, system-driven projects (we love to see your thinking, too!)
  • Experience working on projects that are built both from the ground up and within pre-existing platforms
  • An appreciation of soft skills, specifically, listening and communicating effectively in writing, speaking, and presenting (both in-person and on conference calls). 

TL;DR

As an Interaction Designer, you bring an innate understanding of the user experience to create delightfully interesting ways to interface with our client’s projects and products. You also possess the ability to clearly articulate your decision-making and design process, challenge assumptions respectfully, and to both give and receive constructive criticism and feedback. What a combo!
