You’re the kind of person who doesn’t think about users, but thinks about humans. You see the world through a lens of hassles and problems and how smart, experience design can solve them. You don’t think in interfaces, you think in experiences. You’ve never said, “it’s an app,” though you realize that, for the foreseeable future, there will be an app. You’ve moved beyond gestures, behaviors and interactions and are starting to think about intelligence and conversations. You realize today’s information architecture and traditional UX tools are rapidly evolving so old ways of thinking about UX just won’t work anymore. Frankly, you’re a little obsessed with taking on the unmet challenges of the world and solving them through smart experience design.
If this is you, then you are for us.
Lippincott is looking for senior experience designers who can help amplify our growing digital brand and innovation practice. We are looking for someone who has a strong point of view on the evolution of digital design, who understands that experience (digital, user, but much more broadly) is at the forefront of where the world is heading, and who purposefully keeps ahead of the curve when it comes to emerging technologies. It’s a lot to ask for one person – we understand that. That’s the expectation – experience visionaries encouraged to apply and come lead.
