Role Overview
The UX Lead plays a central role at HUSH, taking a hands-on, research driven approach to user experience design, from design development through technical execution. The UX Lead  is the interface and translator between strategy, design and technology. Starting at the design development stage of a project, you think through the broad physical and digital experience holistically. Who are our users? How do they move through a space? How do digital touch points influence this journey? Your deep understanding will be translated into real technical deliverables, helping to craft key inputs into our front and back end systems. Moving deeper into the project you’ll work with the design team to turn concepts into reality through wireframing and user flows. As projects reach technical development the UX Lead will work with the technology team to revise, refine and strengthen the overall experience. The UX Lead always acts as the champion of the user (or consumer, guest, etc.)

As UX Lead at HUSH, you will balance workloads in various stages of development, from high level conceptual thinking to highly detailed systems design. HUSH is very collaborative. As such, you should demonstrate strong organizational and communication skills, and be comfortable articulating specific visions and opinions to help internal teams progress. The role requires work that rocks, with a diversity of mediums and interests, and should include significant experience in physical/digital experience design, product development and systems design.
