Voice UX Designer

San Francisco /
Gaming & User Experience /
Full-Time
Volley develops voice-controlled games and entertainment apps for Amazon Alexa and Google Home. Our voice apps are world-class and attract millions of users every month. We’re a 45-person team based in San Francisco.
 
We’ve created several of the top experiences for voice-controlled devices, including:
- Song Quiz - a name-that-tune music trivia game
- Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? - a quiz game to test your elementary-level knowledge
- Bedtime Stories - a soothing, narrated skill to help you fall asleep
 
We believe voice control will be the main way people access entertainment in their bedrooms, kitchens, living rooms, and cars, and our goal is to build a destination for interactive audio entertainment, as Netflix did for television.

In this role, you will iterate on ideas to drive KPIs, lead the user experience and advocate for your ideas as part of a functional team. You’ll be on the frontier of voice design, creating experiences for the 100 million+ Americans that own smart speaker devices (Amazon Echo, Google Home).

You'll be responsible for planning and overseeing one of the most popular games on voice, managing members of the team and owning deliverables. You'll work with data, engineers, designers and business stakeholders to develop roadmaps and prioritize features and experiments.

Here’s what we’re looking for:

    • Experience designing thoughtful interactions for complex applications.
    • Curiosity to design for new platforms and devices
    • Experience designing new features and experiments to hit KPIs.
    • Ability to use data to inform design decisions.

Some things you may have done in the past:

    • Designed innovative user experiences for mobile apps, websites, broadcast, smart speaker devices.


At Volley, we recognize the importance of work-life balance. We are currently working remotely, but come January will be implementing a hybrid work-from-home and in-office schedule. We also offer 4 weeks of paid time off and strongly encourage its use.
 
Volley believes in an inclusive workplace and is committed to building a team from a variety of backgrounds. We will ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided reasonable accommodation to participate in the job application or interview process, to perform essential job functions, and to receive the other benefits and privileges of employment.
 
We’re a small but quickly growing team that truly enjoys working together. We love coming together over Zoom happy hours, the funny and strange in Slack #random, and come January, occasional karaoke sessions in our brand new Hayes Valley office. If this sounds like fun (we promise it is), get in touch!
 
Underrepresented candidates, and candidates from nontraditional backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply!
