Senior UX Designer

Please include URLs for an online portfolio in addition to resume. Submissions without a portfolio included will not be considered.

We believe that everyone has the right to private and secure communication. Although encryption tools have existed for some time and are freely available, poor user experience makes them a non-option for most people. Therefore, to act on our belief, a great user experience (UX) is at the forefront of Virtru’s mission. This is where you, as a Senior UX Designer, come in.

Your job at Virtru is to empower people to communicate through easy-to-use encryption.

We might be a good match if…

You’re a generalist with a sweet spot, or a specialist looking to broaden your skills.
You focus on UI, UX, or you’re a mythical unicorn. We’re interested in talented designers.

You value craftsmanship.
You obsess over detail and polish. You have a depth of knowledge in various interaction paradigms along with thoughts on how to improve them. You’re an experience whisperer, and you can distill complicated problems into simple and elegant solutions.

You’ve shipped product.
You’ve weathered release cycles and know what details matter at each stage, how to motivate engineers to get the fit and finish right, how to obtain and translate insights from user studies into meaningful action, and what’s most likely to go afoul at each stage. You can share several shining examples of real work you’ve shipped, and what you learned along the way.

You think beyond the ‘how’ and help to define the ‘what.’
You lead the product design process for your team — from problem definition to technical execution. You thrive best when helping to define the requirements, not just translating them into designs. You draw out and welcome ideas from anyone on your team, including (but not limited to) engineering, marketing, sales, and support folks.

You can think and talk about the bottom line.
Looking through pages of metrics and analytics don’t scare you and you know which features can act as force multipliers on your company’s business model.

You thrive in user validation.
You know when and how to get effective user validation through prototypes at various visual fidelity, user testing, and analytics.

You are a cross-platform zen master.
You live somewhere between screen sizes and operating systems. You know what translates between them, how to translate, and why one solution works better for A but not B.

In addition, you would also…

  • Help to define the user model and user interface for new and existing Virtru products and features.
  • Develop high level and/or detailed storyboards, mockups, and prototypes to effectively communicate interaction and design ideas.
  • Gauge and validate the usability of new and existing products and making constructive suggestions for change.
  • Contribute to, improve, and implement an evolving design process.
  • Collaborate cross functionally with product and engineering counterparts to ensure projects are well-defined, high-impact, and possible to successfully execute on.
  • Work closely with all designers to ensure a cohesive user experience across all products.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Located in or around Washington, DC.
  • 3 years of experience in a related field.
  • Experience using a user-centered approach to designing software.
  • Experience working with cross-functional teams to drive strategy, vision, and execution.
  • Thinking in terms of design systems and making rational design decisions.
  • Proficient with industry standard design tools (e.g. Photoshop, Illustrator, Sketch).
  • Self-motivated, able to prioritize and manage workload and meet critical project deadlines.
  • A demonstrable foundation in Typography, Interaction and Visual Design, and Ideation.
  • An understanding of what makes an experience good or bad is critical. You can think through user problems, find reasonable solutions, mock them up in detail, test your assumptions, iterate, and work with engineers to build them.
  • Can communicate clearly and effectively to a variety of audiences from engineers to business executives.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • You thrive in an environment with short feedback loops.
  • You have a drive and hunger to grow, improve, and learn new skills.
  • Experience with prototyping as a means to explore and convey design solutions.
  • Experience working with web or mobile based technologies such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Android Studio, XCode, etc.
  • In addition to visual design, you have an understanding of motion/animation and how it can enhance the user experience.
  • Experience leading Design Studios, Design Sprints, team brainstorming and ideation exercises.
  • Experience with User Experience Research methods.
  • Experience with Rapid Prototyping.
  • Extensive experience partnering with Product Managers to develop the strategy and rationale for features.
  • You look for opportunities to solve problems in unusual and innovative ways.
  • You understand the technical limitations and liberties behind your decisions and have enough chops to communicate your ideas to our engineers.
  • Strong illustration chops.
  • You can surf! (and can teach the rest of us how).
