Seattle, WA (remote)
52 Limited is a digital staffing agency with an industry-leading focus on the creative + technology space. We exclusively place tech and creative talent in direct-hire, contract-to-hire, and contract roles with our clients in Portland, Seattle, and San Francisco.

We are looking for a seasoned UX Designer for a 3-6 month contract (full-time hours) with our health/insurance-tech client. The role is remote, though candidates must be located in WA, OR, CA, or TX to be considered.

In this role you will be the lead designer for an internally-facing web software tool that this client is building from the ground up. This Lead/Senior UX Designer will need to be comfortable leading the process and connecting the dots between the (internal) customer needs and back-end requirements. Primary activities and deliverables will include:

* Requirements gathering and documentation
* User interviews to uncover and document pain points and needs
* Wireframing, flow diagramming, and prototyping to test solutions
* Designing and moderating user tests and documenting feedback
* User story co-creation & QA oversight of engineered product with the Product Owner

Comfortability in gathering feedback, experimenting, refining, and ultimately creating stories for engineering to build in partnership with the Product Owner will be essential. Because this is an internal tool, visual design is not a high priority, unless in service of usability.

Successful candidates should meet the following requirements:

* Senior/Lead level UX designer with 5+ years experience
* An available online portfolio or detailed case studies that demonstrates similar solutions from beginning to end, demonstrating the steps and activities used in the process
* Experience with requirements gathering and documentation, wireframing and flow diagramming, small scale usability study design and moderation, story writing & Agile environments
* Experience implementing existing visual design/UI systems
* Mastery of Adobe XD, Sketch, Figma, prototyping tools
