Jobs at Arcweb Technologies

UX Architect

Location: Remote

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Mid Level

About the Role

UX Architects at Arcweb are team leaders who understand theory but strive for practical, buildable solutions. They are energized by the challenge of looking at a morass of potential business requirements and user needs, and creating order from that chaos. They realize that figuring out what *not to* design is just as important as what to design.

If you're a product-minded design leader who can take charge from project kickoff to final delivery, you'll thrive in this role. 

This is a full-time, salaried position with benefits. The successful candidate will be able to work remotely or out of our Philadelphia office, as desired. Occasional client visits in the Greater Philadelphia Area may be requested.

If you have the desire to lead, come join our team. We have big ideas, and are looking for big thinkers!

Responsibilities

  • Leading the design on 1-3 software projects simultaneously, from strategy to implementation.
  • Running cross-disciplinary, participatory design workshops with client and internal teams.
  • Assisting in defining, collecting, prioritizing and grooming product requirements.
  • Distilling those requirements into detailed user flows and clickable wireframe prototypes, which you’ll present and iterate on.
  • Collaborating with the engineering team and project managers to manage scope, budget and timeline.
  • Working with the engineering team to ensure your designs are buildable in an efficient manner

Qualifications

  • Have shipped software, whether as a consultant or as part of an internal team. (There is no "years of experience" requirement but we will strongly prefer candidates who have actually shipped software.)
  • Can work independently, managing and prioritizing their own workload.
  • Communicate crisply, concisely and completely, whether orally, via email/Slack, or in a discovery report.
  • Work iteratively, and treat every design decision as a hypothesis ready to be tested and validated or pivoted.
  • Believe that great ideas can come from anyone, regardless of department or job title. They’re comfortable with a participatory, cross-disciplinary design process.
  • Treat a whiteboard ("real" or digital) as an outboard brain, and would rather sketch out a nebulous idea than discuss it. 
  • Have a working knowledge of the concepts necessary to build modern web and mobile UIs (HTML/CSS/JS, inheritance, responsive/adaptive design, component reuse, etc.)
  • Understand how the designs they propose will transfer to engineering. (Actual coding chops are strictly a nice-to-have, and you will not be asked to write shippable code as a job requirement.)
  • Have a portfolio with case studies that communicate the thinking behind your design decisions.

Remote & Hybrid Work
With our roots in Philadelphia’s coworking community, Arcweb has been a longstanding cheerleader for hybrid work. Pre-pandemic, our project teams had already mastered the art of balancing time between home and the office, and today we’ve expanded that approach to allow all employees to work from wherever they are most comfortable.

Our office, located in the heart of Old City Philadelphia, is available for team members to enjoy company lunches, standing desks, and team happy hours. Remote team members maintain a connection to their fellow Arcwebers via virtual events, demos, and online collaboration tools.

Our Interview Process
We’re still getting the hang of the best ways to evaluate new colleagues, but know that your time is valuable. As such, we’ve worked out an interview process that is fairly condensed. First, applications that pass a quick qualifications review schedule an Intro Call with our Hiring Manager for this position to make sure your goals and our goals are aligned and get a sense of whether or not Arcweb is a good fit for you.

If you are a good match based on the introductory conversation, we’ll schedule a single half-day round of interviews – conducted over Zoom – where you will meet with members of our cross-functional teams: Engineers, Designers, Project Managers, and leadership.

From there, we’ll make our decision whether or not to make an offer – no homework exercise, no on-the-spot brain teasers, no nonsense.
