Sr. UX Designer

Xometry (NASDAQ: XMTR) powers the industries of today and tomorrow by connecting the people with big ideas to the manufacturers who can bring them to life. Xometry's digital marketplace gives manufacturers the critical resources they need to grow their business while also making it easy for buyers at Fortune 1000 companies to tap into global manufacturing capacity.

UX designers at Xometry solve problems. They work together to address user needs and balance them with business objectives. Their knowledge of different methods of design and user research help guide their decision-making. UX designers perform both strategic and tactical roles within their cross-functional squads. They are comfortable taking broad direction and breaking it down into concrete steps to achieve their goals.

Design at Xometry starts with UX designers working closely with product managers to build a shared understanding of the user's problem. They partner with engineers to understand the technical context, challenges, and opportunities for designing a product at scale. They gather feedback and critique early and often. They evaluate their ideas and assumptions with real users.

Within the agile development process, UX designers think iteratively towards a broader outcome. They gather feedback, propose solutions, evaluate decisions, and adjust quickly to new information. They regularly have conversations with users, stakeholders, product managers, and engineers to create a shared understanding and work collaboratively toward solutions. They are comfortable designing enough to push the conversation forward and use their toolkit of design methods to prototype proposed solutions.

The ideal candidate understands that it takes a village to drive innovation and address the challenges that people face in manufacturing.

General responsibilities include:

• Leading complex, multidisciplinary initiatives. Partner with product managers, engineering leads, and stakeholders to identify problems and opportunities, develop strategies, prioritize features, and effectively execute on them.

• Working closely with other designers and developers to improve and maintain design consistency across other product areas.

• Prototyping features with user flows, wireframes, and high-fidelity designs.

• Using different usability testing methods to identify the right solutions for our customers.

• Coaching other designers. Develop the overall proficiency of the team in different aspects of UX design.

This is the job for you if you have:

• Strong communication skills. You are a strong advocate for the power of design thinking. You can effectively describe your approach and your decision-making to stakeholders, engineers, and other designers.

• "T-shaped" UX design skills. You are particularly strong in at least one area of UX design and know how to collaborate with experts in other fields to drive better outcomes.

• Experience working in an agile product development environment. You know how to work with other disciplines to drive the right outcomes for our users and the business.

• Experience designing for web apps and mobile apps in a SaaS company or SaaS-like marketplace.

• Experience working within a UX team and collaborating with other UX designers.

• A portfolio that effectively showcases your decision-making and experience designing products for web and mobile.
