Technical.ly Coverage

At Bresslergroup, we are a motivated team of thinkers, makers, and problem solvers. We challenge and inspire each other every day. We are curious, clever, and confident, and we look for the same in those we work with. Our work is driven by discovering insights into how our users interact with products in the real world, and our solutions are focused on seamlessly blending digital and physical layers of the experience. We work in multidisciplinary teams whose combined research, creative, and technical expertise add value throughout a collaborative product-development process. This is how we remain reliably innovative.

Your Purpose

As a Senior Interaction Designer, you will work closely with the research, industrial design, and software engineering teams to craft elegant experiences across platforms, devices, objects, and environments. You are expected to have a proven track record in managing projects and other people and you leverage your great interpersonal skills to do so. Your work, and the work of the teams you would lead, informs the entire product experience – physical and digital interactions, experience architecture, communication, and visual design. You will be challenged to create meaningful user experiences in embedded systems, mobile devices, desktop and web applications, gesture, voice and other novel product interactions. You’ll develop wireframes, user flows, interactive prototypes, and explore new ways of communicating interactions and experiences. Above all, you’re excited to create the product experiences of the future.

Key Responsibilities

  • Define user experience goals, interaction principles, use cases, and rationales for applying interaction modalities across hardware and software layers for a variety of products & platforms.

 

  • Establish visual styles, interface elements, and interaction patterns of a product UI, as well as the communication style of the overall experience.

 

  • Develop personas, journey maps, interaction models, user & task flows, and interactive prototypes to communicate design intent.

 

  • Collaborate with industrial design, mechanical, and electrical engineering teams to understand physical and technological constraints and provide creative solutions for these constraints

 

  • Lead clients through the problem definition and product design process, by planning and facilitating collaborative workshop sessions with clients and key stakeholders.

 

  • Work with research team to conduct and observe user research and usability testing, and, iteratively incorporate feedback to improve product design and user experience.

 

  • Act as a Technical Lead on client projects for the Interaction Design team and mentor other designers as needed.

More About You

You have at least a bachelor’s degree in Human-Computer Interaction, Graphic Design, Psychology, Integrated Product Design, or a related discipline. You have at least 5 to 10 years of experience designing for mobile and consumer electronics UI, desktop software, and web applications. You have worked in a consulting environment for at least 3 years and are familiar with how they operate.

You are clever.

You have a true passion for Interaction Design and human-centered product design. You have a proven track record in successfully managing projects and delivering high-quality solutions to clients. You are comfortable creating wireframes, user flows, and interactive prototypes using Sketch, Invision/Axure, or Adobe Creative Suite – and know when to use which tool for which job. You understand the importance of and can apply principles of visual design such as hierarchy, layout, typography, iconography, and color in service of a more effective design solution. You can apply human factors and usability principles to the design of consumer, commercial, and medical device products. You understand the capabilities and limitations of the latest web, mobile, and software technologies.

You are curious.

You like to explore new territories and learn from others. You are curious about emerging technology for Interaction Design, User Experience, and clever new ways of interacting with everyday things. You can successfully lead clients through problem definition and the innovation process during workshop sessions. You dig into challenges and find hidden opportunities; and you balance an open mind and creativity with analytical thinking and attention to detail.

You are confident.

You are confident in your technical skills and your ability to add value to high profile and critical design challenges. You have a natural ability to lead by example and manage creative teams on projects. You are comfortable with ambiguity and complexity, because sometimes that leads to the most unique, unexpected design solutions. You have excellent writing, presentation, and interpersonal skills – all needed for interacting with our clients daily. You want to work in an environment where things move quickly, and you’re happy to adapt as situations shift. You can work on-site in our Philadelphia office, and you are willing to travel for occasionally for client work.
