Senior UX Designer

Fruition is hiring a Senior UX Designer, who will be charged with determining the best ways for us to bring our clients’ ideas to life online in creative, beautiful, optimized and engaging ways. We are looking for a team lead that is not just a great designer, but geeky, passionate and an expert in UX and fluid design. We will need you to develop designs and wireframes, complete UX audits, and work on your own projects while leading and mentoring a talented team. It’s very much a people-oriented job, involving creation of high-level design concepts for development projects, working with our amazing clients, and interfacing with our staff of digital marketers and developers in a collaborative environment. Fruition’s Senior UX Designer will also work with our sales organization on developing creative vision and solutions, understanding clients’ needs and pitching creative digital concepts. If you’ve got a passion for making beautiful work that is backed by compelling data and testing – if you’re the kind of person who tweaks a display ad or the color of a button until it’s converting like crazy – we want to talk to you.
