Position Description:
POSITION PURPOSE

At The Home Depot Quote Center, we get UX; it’s baked into our DNA. We’re excited to expand the team as we drive new initiatives. As a Sr. UX Designer on the UX team, you will work with other team members, (UX architect, designers and researchers as well as analysts, developers and strategists) to integrate your work into the larger UX architecture, helping craft end-to-end user experiences across HDQC’s external products and internal services.

You can defend your designs because they are based on fundamental research: behavioral, contextual and/or other means of capturing information from your users. You have the spark of out-of-box thinking, abductive reasoning and the joy of “playing pretend.” You are serious about your work and can describe it to highly-analytical engineers & analysts.

Your flair for expression is tempered by the needs of your users. You prototype—almost any media will do, as long as it facilitates a conversation with your audience. Your passion for creating a holistic vision is grounded in the understanding of technical constraints. You can formalize your thinking into use cases, flow charts, information architectures, personas, user stories, wire frames and specifications. You have a desire to see your designs made manifest in code; better yet, you enjoy dabbling in front-end code. 

You seek help from all sources: architects, designers, engineers, analysts, product owners and product managers. Even as you believe world-class design is not created by committee, you enjoy the collaborative effort, taking feedback & criticism as a means of improving the end results. You demonstrate leadership by coaching and mentoring others, through your modeling of design thinking and your passion for doing the right thing.

As Sr. UX Designer, you are comfortable working within a highly dynamic and shifting business landscape. You understand UX architecture and can envision how your designs execute on the architecture. You are comfortable working with business and development stakeholders. In prior roles, you may have been a Product Owner, helping author and prioritize user stories, grooming the Product Backlog and working closely with your Product Managers.
