We're a lean and fast-moving Techstars startup (Chicago '17) founded by a team of night-hackers and experts in Artificial Intelligence, with a vision to empower everyone to maximize their productivity using Virtual Reality. Our goal is to immerse distributed teams into a VR workplace so that they can have access to their office and team from anywhere. This is by no means an easy problem to solve, but with the world's best team, we're excited to revolutionize the future of work!

At Immersed, the product is at our core and drives our business. Design and Engineering own product, and work together synergistically to deliver complex software elegantly.

We’re always looking for self-motivated product and visual designers who understand great design is more than how a product looks or feels.

We believe great design helps people solve their problems, accomplish their goals, and brings delight to their everyday lives. We also believe a well-executed design strategy touches every part of the company, from our employee handbook to our in-VR application interactions.

The Senior UX Designer/Researcher will use usability tools and research methods to design and conduct qualitative and quantitative studies in order to understand users and improve product usability and usefulness. The candidate will work closely with other designers, product managers, and engineers to identify and prioritize research opportunities and approaches. Responsibilities include designing and conducting studies, analyzing and reporting results, providing recommendations, and creating.

If you believe the same, we should talk!

We're looking for someone who:
• is obsessed with the customer's psyche
• has a great eye for innovative effective material design
• has a collaborative mindset, recognizing that most great outcomes are accomplished by teams, not individuals
• is extremely proactive, resourceful, and constantly learning
• is hungry to produce excellent work, and has a love for the craft of design
• believes that 'good' is the enemy of 'great'

Must be very willing to help co-workers and be sacrificial with time. Our work-culture is very much like a warm family, not a cold office.

Required Qualifications:
• Is well versed in the UX design process
• Understands how to communicate the customer journey (personas, user scenarios, sketches, process maps, wireframes, etc.)
• Experience in: user research, wireframing, interaction flows, visual design, and prototyping at all fidelities
• Proficiency with Sketch, InVision, or other prototyping tools
• Proficiency with Photoshop, Illustrator, or other design tools
• Love the process (ideating, testing, building and iterating) of bringing digital products into the world
• Effectively communicate and support your designs and decisions
• Work under pressure and deliver results with multiple stakeholders
• Good written and communication skills (English)

Bonus Points:
• Entrepreneurial mindset or small startup experience
• Experience with developing XR (VR/AR) UI/UX design
• Proficiency with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
• Proven ability to create landing pages with high conversion rates, without sacrificing great design
• Experience with marketing to customers

Compensation:
• Salary: $75k - $100k
AND
• Equity: $75k - $150k (at current valuation, which grows over time)
• Benefits: Medical, Dental, Vision

Please include:
• A link to your portfolio and work you’ve done
• A link to your Dribbble profile, if you have one

NOTE: We do not work with external recruiters, agencies, or development shops.

An Insider's view of Immersed [Techstars '17]

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office is chill but can quickly turn exciting with new feature releases or goals met. There’s flexibility - whether bringing your dog or breaking in the middle of the day to work out. Whenever someone goes to pick up lunch or a coffee, it often turns into a team thing. We gather in VR for meetings or just to work with our remote team members.

Sarah

Director of Accounting

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Building a productivity tool that is flexible, powerful, and intuitive in VR. Balancing these three things isn't easy, but all three are necessary to make working in VR seamless, enjoyable, and even preferable. With nearly infinite variations in work flows, hardware, and software - we are laser-focused on making this a reality for the world.

Ryan

VR Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

The ability to be creative along with the technical knowledge to execute. Ability to give and receive critical feedback while being respectful of others. A passion for learning new skills and honing old ones. Having risky ideas along with conservative fall backs.
Being able to travel the road of failures to success.

Marvin

Lead Technical 3D Artist

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

To be a very successful company, the best ideas MUST win, not office politics or ranking. And if I've actually surrounded myself with some of the world's most brilliant people, I'd be a fool to not get their thoughts/ideas. Everyone on the team, including myself, is directly incentivised to let the best ideas win, irrespective of whose idea it was.

Renji

CEO/Founder

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Remote work availability is good. It's good for employees, employers, the environment, and local economies. We want to make remote work accessible to everyone. Our primary goal is to not only make remote collaboration as effective as in person, but to one day make it more effective by transcending physical limitations.

VR Engineer
