UX Designer

SSB BART Group (SSB) helps companies design and enhance their digital systems - including web sites, web applications, software, hardware, and services - so they are usable by people with disabilities. In the same way that buildings must conform to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), modern web sites and applications must be accessible to people with disabilities or face legal liability. SSB allows organizations to address these risks and provide equal access through software, training, and consulting solutions. As a company we seek to both do well financially and create a world where all users have access to digital systems.

SSB has an immediate opening for a UX Designer. The UX Designer manages the user experience and design of the Accessibility Management Platform (AMP) product platform, including the AMP for Mobile, Alchemy, SSB University and various integration products. The UX Designer is a central figure on the product development team, helping us bring our ideas to life as beautiful, usable features and products that help companies make their digital systems usable by people with disabilities. Come help us build beautiful software.

The UX Designer will be responsible for learning the business workflows of AMP users and working with product management to design feature sets that expand the capabilities of our products and guide the development of these features. The right candidate:

  • Demonstrates a passion for innovation and good design
  • Possesses a strong ability to make succinct, research-backed, and well-reasoned arguments for design work
  • Thrives in a fast-paced agile product development team.

Responsibilities

  • Design the user interface to accompany the user experience documentation and produce pixel-perfect mockups and/or prototypes that demonstrate the appearance of new features.
  • Create and maintain a UI Style Guide.
  • Interact with internal and external stakeholders of AMP to understand real-world product requirements and to conduct usability testing to guide product direction and validate the design of new features and products.
  • Work closely with all members of the SCRUM teams -- product managers, developers and QA Analysts -- to ensure that new features are developed and delivered with a high quality, user-friendly user experience.

Qualifications

  • BS in Human-Computer Interaction, Design or related field or equivalent work experience
  • 3+ years of relevant work experience in the area of B2B enterprise software design
  • A portfolio of work that demonstrates ability to design attractive and user-friendly UI and UX
