  • Present multiple concepts and prototypes to business stakeholders (which typically include Directors and VPs) to solicit feedback and gain alignment on the design

  • Evaluate and develop system-level design components that create a unified user experience across the digital ecosystem, providing solutions that improve experiences and not just a solitary feature

  • Work closely with product owners to deliver high-fidelity prototypes for optimal, responsive, mobile-first experiences

  • Collaborate with other system designers and the accessibility team to steer the overall direction and ensure inclusive design is upheld

  • Initiate, lead and facilitate design discussions, workshops, and whiteboarding sessions

  • Communicate designs, verbally and visually, to stakeholders and other team members

  • Productively address and manage any feedback

  • Provide clear documentation for designs and work with Agile teams through the implementation process, reviewing and ensuring designs are accurately executed

  • Educate other designers, developers, and product owners on how to use company design system and evangelize the system

What you’ll need:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Interactive Design, Information Technology or eight years’ experience as an equivalent

  • Five years of user experience designer, user interface designer, or other equivalent title in web-based design and development

What will set you apart:

  • Knowledge of the employee benefits and the healthcare ecosystem

  • Experience defining and managing a formal usability testing program for web, responsive mobile and native mobile apps
