Project and role details: Concept App project kicks off in the Design Phase and will drive this role for several years. Will also help minimize external spend on overall project. This role drives the development and implementation of the design language, user interface, and overall user experience of the application. Interface design, testing, and optimization based on end user feedback will be critical to the project's success and those responsibilities sit firmly with this person. This is a large-scale project. Multiple years of design, iteration, multi-platforming (for mobile, wearables, etc.) will require this role to be ongoing. The front end app will be Angular and they should be comfortable designing for mobile, tablet (especially, and desktop DataViz experience would be good. They should also have led design for an app or portfolio of apps (ideally B2B or internal enterprise apps) – not just have been part of a larger design team. They’ll be a one person “design team” starting out but over time could have leadership opportunities across our apps for the right person. Important skills will be creating and owning the design language and UX for enterprise apps, creativity and collaboration, ability to understand and integrate a variety of end user perspectives (again, users of the app will be hands on technicians, inspectors, leads/planners).
