UX Designer

Overview

Mentor Creative Group is a unique creative design agency located in Fremont, Seattle. We take on projects ranging from web/mobile design and development, to branding, to user research. Our clients run the gamut from small startup to global corporations. But most importantly, we are a creative incubator and a place for continuous professional development. Mentor is an environment where designers and developers can experiment, learn, and push themselves. We do this by creating multi-disciplinary product teams and relying on each member’s knowledge to not only enrich the project, but to teach each other. The process creates professional growth and outstanding products.

We are hiring for a full-time UX Designer. We want someone who has a solid grounding in UX principles (user research, interaction design, documentation) and visual design fundamentals (type, layout, hierarchy, color, etc.) when developing digital experiences.

This is a full-time role in our office in Seattle, WA. On a day-to-day basis, you’d be working on approximately two projects at a time in teams of 4 to 7 people. Our projects range from full scale end to end products like mobile apps and software to small quick-turn marketing campaigns.

Typically during most projects you would work alone or with other designers and user researchers to interview users and stakeholders, develop personas and user journey maps, and ultimately a feature backlog of what will be built into the application. Once development is underway, you would be creating wireframes and prototypes and working with visual designers and developers to bring your concepts to production. Our designers interact regularly and often with our clients, and work closely with project managers to plan out and document what is needed to build out the experiences.
