About you.


  • Define the interaction and/or interface for new and existing products and features.

  • Our process is pretty fluid: you’ll develop prototypes, screenshots, wireframes -- whatever gets the job done.

  • Quickly and thoughtfully incorporate team feedback into designs.

  • Validate your designs through A/B testing (working with product management) and/or qualitative user research (either yourself or working with a UX researcher)

  • You'll need to help refine other people's ideas and come up with your own.


A little more about the Indeed 


  • Leverage Indeed assets.

  • Pioneer opportunities for growth.

  • Measure and Assess new ideas.


  • Love the problem, not the solution.  Try hard to focus on the problem or opportunity, don't fall in love with your design / implementation.

  • Get out of the hex.  We need to validate that we're working on a real problem, and that we're designing the right solution.  That doesn't happen inside the workspace (hex).  You need to get out of the building and talk to customers.

  • Get started, then get better.  When in doubt, try stuff.  Err on the side of making mistakes rather than listening to inner or outer critics.  Seek forgiveness rather than permission.  Don't worry about being bad at first.

  • Failure is an option.  Yes some of the stuff we do will fail.  We should expect some failures.  If we're not failing we're not being bold or risky enough.

  • Fight the resistance.  Barriers are part of the natural order of the universe.  External and Internal.  Recognize them, and fight them: Wear them down, work around them or jump over them.  Don't accept being blocked.
