UX Director

Job Description

TheLadders helps people improve their careers.

TheLadders has accumulated 11 years of experience as a startup (running on 1 round of venture funding back in 2004), and we’ve found a new mojo in 2014. We aim to build the very best product for engaging with and improving your career. A UX Director will help our product team to help get there.

You will:

  • Own UX, user discovery, research, design and usage analysis for our most important mobile and web product
  • Partner with Product Lead to define, debate, defend, iterate, and communicate strategy and roadmap
  • Implement and be held accountable to usage and growth metrics
  • Help lead an agile scrum team (PM, UX, Design, Engineering), manage velocity and impact
  • Contributing to the development of a leading “best in class” UX discipline
  • Improve people’s careers

We’d love to meet you if:

  • You have 6-8 years in UX and interaction design, with experience in mobile and web
  • You’ve been a part of products that have demonstrated clear product/market fit, and experienced quantifiable growth or increase in growth trajectory as a result
  • You are fluent in how social products engage and grow
  • You are a champion for user research, and know the pitfalls
  • You take ownership, and want to be held accountable to measurable results
  • You’re looking for a product and technology driven organization, where the “building team” (engineers, product, UX, data science) is our biggest and fastest growing team
  • At least one of your references is a great engineer or product manager who would love to work with you again
  • You want to invent and build something new – We are redefining our core value proposition, which is risky, committed, stressful, and very interesting
