At Volusion, we make products that people love. Our teams are dedicated to providing SaaS ​ecommerce solutions and services for all business types, from startups to well-established companies. If you're a creative professional who loves working with teams, has a passion for driving positive change and wants to better the world with your ​ideas, we want to hear from you!

The rundown:

We are looking for a Senior UX Designer to lead our efforts in designing and implementing rich user interfaces and APIs for our worldwide customer base. The ideal candidate has extensive design experience and is familiar with human behavior and interactions on the Web, as well as how to optimize websites and web applications for those interactions. You will be the primary voice for consistent design across a growing suite of applications and integrations and building out a user-centered experience for both ecommerce stores and administrative interfaces.

You will:

  • Create sketches, rough wireframes, prototypes–both static and clickable–and low- and high-resolution comps for product and engineering teams.
  • Rapidly iterate and collaborate based upon user requirements and industry best practices.
  • Develop a consistent look-and-feel across all Volusion products, applications, and assets.
  • Build a set of styles and accompanying documentation that can be applied by other designers and engineers to ongoing projects.
  • Champion users, especially focusing on clean, usable design patterns that are modern and reflect industry direction and standards.
  • Develop an approach and methodology to testing designs and incorporating user feedback, including A/B testing and user research.
  • Assist and at times lead efforts to convert comps to HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and prepare assets for implementation.
  • Offer informed opinions and experience in the choice of color, texture, page flow, site design, and application design.

What about all those standard job description bullets? We’ve got those too:

  • 6+ years experience in design, ideally in the software or web application space.
  • 4+ years experience in user experience, especially dealing in human interaction, HCI, eye tracking, and related user experience.
  • 3+ years leading and managing other designers, including oversight, ensuring consistency, and meeting deadlines.
  • Strong portfolio of design projects.
  • Proficiency in design software (UXPin, Balsamiq, Axure, or similar).
  • Experience building out HTML- and CSS-based websites or applications (JavaScript a strong plus).
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Ability to work closely with other designers, managers and customer support team

Who is also the embodiment of our culture code (we hope you are nodding your head in agreement as you browse through it!):

  • Humble: Have humility and be respectful; no egos allowed.
  • Effective: Get stuff done!
  • Adaptable: Willing to fill any role, anytime. Going above/beyond the call of duty.
  • Transparent: Open and honest to self and others.
  • Collaborative: We favor teamwork and take ownership.

An Insider's view of Volusion

What are some social events your company does?

Part of our Culture Code is to "put people before everything else", with this we listen to quirky ideas that employees come up with- like having a watermelon throwing contest and a snack wagon. Yes, a snack wagon- once a month we bring an old school radio flyer wagon full of snacks around to every desk. It's so simple yet brings so much joy.

Rachel

Sr. People & Culture Coordinator

What does your typical day look like?

Once I get settled, I head over to the kitchen to pour myself a cup of cold brew. I grab fruit and something salty from our snack bins. I then meet with the teams I am apart of to give updates on my work. The rest of my day is spent prioritizing & completing ad-hoc requests, developing data pipelines, and chipping away at longer-term data projects.

Data Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

My leaders take the time to understand my career goals. They support me by teaching me not only career lessons but life lessons too! Through company wide projects, Volusion gives me the opportunity to gain skills outside of my department. This helps me to be a well rounded sales pro and to better understand the industry and product that I sell!

Megan

Business Development Representative

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I encourage my team to just try it! Whether "it" is a new tool or program, a way to customize the website experience or connect with entrepreneurs. We always want to be testing and moving forward with our brand and our approach to creative problem solving.

Visual Design Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

We're there to make sure our merchants get heard so being a great listener helps for a start! Other skills that would make someone successful on our team is being organized, attentive to details, willing to work hard to make the team successful and going the extra mile to make sure that our merchants feel taken care of.
