Job - Engineering

Close Date: 07/12/2019

Jama Software provides the leading platform for requirements, risk and test management. With Jama Connect and industry-focused services, teams building complex products, systems and software improve cycle times, increase quality, reduce rework and minimize effort proving compliance. Representing the forefront of modern development, Jama’s growing customer base of more than 600 organizations includes SpaceX, Boston Scientific, Lyft, Deloitte, Alight, Samsung and Caterpillar.

We’re looking for a mid-level user experience designer to share ownership of user research, wireframes, usability testing, and product design as a key member of our user experience team.

What you’ll do:
The UX team at Jama is tightly integrated into the product delivery process to ensure our customers’ needs are being met. Individuals participate on small delivery teams, focused on shipping customer value each release. We also work directly with Product Managers and talk with customers to plan for future roadmap items.

To be successful in this role, you will:
Partner with customer-facing team members across the organization while leading design research efforts to understand problems or surface opportunities for intended audiences.
Own the user experience from rough to refined, using sketches, flows, concepts, prototypes, and annotated wireframes.
Seek internal and external design reviews to refine your thinking.
Hold accountability for running usability tests on the existing product, high-fidelity designs, and prototypes.
Collaborate with cross-functional delivery teams, representing the customer voice in the work we deliver.

Basic skills:
A strong understanding of UX design principles.
High proficiency with design tools and software to produce user flows, concepts, prototypes, and other design deliverables -- most of our time is spent in Sketch and InVision.
Strong written and verbal communication skills. You can clearly communicate your point-of-view to your teams and other stakeholders.
Sketching or drawing ability to quickly communicate ideas.
Attention to detail and well-developed problem-solving skills.

Education and Experience Requirements:
3+ years of UX design experience that includes enterprise products. Brand or consumer product design alone is not sufficient.
BS/BA in art, design, interaction design, new media, human computer interaction (HCI), or related field
A portfolio of work that demonstrates UX design principles in action


If we’ve intrigued you and you are the right candidate for the role, we will offer: 

A chance to contribute to a company developing a compelling, category defining product
Challenging and fun work with a chance to make distinct, company-shaping tangible contributions
An energized and ambitious team of people on a mission
Competitive cash and equity compensation
Comprehensive and affordable medical, dental and vision plans as well as pre-tax savings accounts and a generous 401(k) employer match 
Time-off and leave programs designed to meet critical needs for rejuvenation and, when needed, extra support to cope with life events
Flexible, creative workplace that includes a modern, open plan office with ample creative workspaces, monthly lunches and bagel days, a stocked kitchen and many ad hoc fun events that ensure we both work hard and play hard at Jama
