Job overview

 

At Evans Hunt, our mission is to create experiences that powerfully combine strategy, creative, and technology. As a Senior UX Designer, your role is to advocate for users' needs and help deliver experiences that reflect those needs.

 

Your addition to the team will extend our capabilities, build internal capacity, and push the status quo for creating websites and products that are compelling, appealing, and easy to use.

 

Who we're looking for

 

Your professional or academic experience has given you the ability to work with a human-centred lens and create more meaningful digital experiences. You believe in a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to projects and that diverse perspectives lead to stronger work.

 

If the person below sounds like you, you should definitely apply.

  • You have a deep understanding of the iterative user experience design process. You know how to think ahead to how pages and components will function across different devices and for different audiences.
  • You're proficient in software like Figma, Adobe CC, Sketch and InVision for designing and prototyping. You also understand and have experience with agile work processes.
  • You're collaborative. You love solving design problems and understand how your work fits with other disciplines, including writing, visual design, technologists, research, and data. You also understand how to use the UX design process to create alignment with the team and consensus with stakeholders.
  • You can communicate effectively with developers. You have some knowledge and understanding of the fundamentals of technology solutions.
  • You're flexible. You know when to hold your ground and when to adapt your approach or recommendations based on feedback. You win the hearts and minds of clients by helping them ask the right questions, probing when necessary, and developing tailored strategies.

 

A day in the life

 

Working at an agency, you'll have the opportunity to work with various clients across a diverse range of industries simultaneously. One day you might be studying the needs of job-seekers for a review site with over 50 million unique monthly visitors. Another day you might explore how the needs between American and Canadian travellers differ and how to best localize their online experience. No day is the same.

 

That said, there are a few activities that will likely take up most of your time. These include:

 

  • Lead the user experience work for multiple clients, and advocate for those clients' users every step of the way.
  • Create organizing principles, user flows and site maps.
  • Sketch, wireframe, design and prototype user experience solutions.
  • Test your work to improve results for our clients consistently.
  • Lead clients and customers in rapid design labs and workshops.

 

What's in it for you

 

Evans Hunt is a full-service digital agency focused on the integration of strategy, creative, and technology. Our experienced team of 80+ employees delivers fully integrated marketing solutions for top national and international organizations. We're a fun place that does good work. Here's what we're offering:

 

  • Salary range: $80-100K (subject to experience level).
  • Culture & lifestyle: We're an agency, and we work hard, but life is also for living. We strive to provide a respectful and inclusive workplace in which all are welcome. We're also not much for micromanaging––you'll have a lot of flexibility to deliver great work in ways that make sense to you.
  • Office availability: We're currently working remotely during the pandemic, with optional in-office desks available for booking, if you choose.
  • Stuff: A laptop will be provided to you, along with a phone plan if you want it.

 

What we'll ask

 

There are a couple of things we'll ask for as part of the hiring process:

 

  • Cover letter: Tell us a little about yourself and your fit for the job (it's true that companies don't look at applications that don't include cover letters).
  • Portfolio/case study presentation: If you make it to the interview stage, we'll request that you present your portfolio and/or applicable case studies.

 


Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

 

Evans Hunt embraces and encourages the differences and characteristics that make our employees unique. The rich perspectives that result from diversity promote innovation and business success and make us more creative, flexible, productive and competitive. These differences are an important part of not only our culture but our reputation and achievements. At Evans Hunt, diversity is a fact, and equity and inclusion are choices we make as individuals and leaders.
