Job Description



Responsibilities/Qualification

Position Summary

We are looking for a UI/UX Designer to collaborate with product owners, user community, and engineering to define and implement solutions for the product direction, visuals, and user experience. The designer will execute all visual design stages from concept to final hand-off to engineering and conceptualize original ideas that bring simplicity and user friendliness to complex design roadblocks.

UI/UX Designer responsibilities include gathering user requirements, designing graphic elements and building navigation components. To be successful in this role, you should have experience with design software and wireframe tools. If you also have a portfolio of professional design projects that includes work with web applications, we’d like to meet you.

Ultimately, you’ll create both functional and appealing features that address the Joint Staff Joint Training needs and provide the next generation training tools to the Warfighter.

Duties and Responsibilities

  • Gathering and evaluating user requirements, in collaboration with product managers, operations, and engineers
  • Illustrating design ideas using storyboards, process flows and sitemaps
  • Designing graphic user interface elements, like menus, tabs and widgets
  • Build page navigation buttons and search fields
  • Work with engineering to develop UI mockups and prototypes that clearly illustrate how sites function and look like
  • Create original graphic designs (e.g. images, sketches and tables)
  • Prepare and present rough drafts to internal teams and key stakeholders
  • Identify and troubleshoot UX problems (e.g. responsiveness)
  • Conduct layout adjustments based on user feedback
  • Implement, enforce, and adhere to style standards

Education and Experience

Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Human-Computer Interaction, Interaction Design or related discipline plus 2 to 4 years of relevant experience.

In some cases, educational requirements may be adjusted or waived for comparable work experience. Work experience may be adjusted for highly specialized knowledge or uniquely applicable experience for positions involving new technology or labor market shortages as reflected by market survey data.

  • Proven work experience as a UI/UX Designer or similar role
  • Portfolio of design projects
  • Solid experience in creating wireframes, storyboards, user flows, process flows, and site maps
  • Proficiency in Photoshop, Illustrator, OmniGraffle, or other visual design and wireframing tools
  • Proficiency in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript for rapid prototyping
  • Excellent visual design skills with sensitivity to user-system interaction
  • Up-to-date with the latest UI trends, techniques, and technologies
