Capgemini Senior Interaction Designer in New York, New York

What will you be doing?

Interaction Designers are responsible for designing the behaviour of interactive products, from overarching interaction models down to detailed micro-interactions. Interaction Designers create the core scaffolding and guidelines (architecture, user flows, navigation models, etc) that shape how people interact with products, and collaborate closely with Visual Designers and Design Technologists to bring these to life in the final product.

As a Senior Interaction Designer, you are expected to represent depth in the craft of interaction design: as an individual contributor, as a mentor and guide for more junior colleagues, and as a contributor to the global community of practice. You will often be the backbone of your projects from beginning to end. You will plan, prioritise, and deliver interaction design activities autonomously, in the context of interdisciplinary projects. You will lead client conversations within your domain, providing articulate recommendations and helping guide client choices. You will have opportunities to lead small teams on projects and contribute to business development through proposal-writing and pitches.

Your fellow frogs will rely on you to:

Bridge the gap between research insights and tangible concepts

Make sense of complex systems or large volumes of data and content and represent them in simplified models

Refine concepts into meaningful narratives that speak to business opportunities, technical feasibility and organisation set up

Identify the right interaction patterns to apply in each context

Collaborate fluidly with visual designers and developers

On a typical project you will:

Understand the goals, business requirements and constraints for the project.

Help to translate business requirements into user stories.

Conduct secondary research, including trend benchmarking and competitor analysis.

Create frameworks such as customer journeys, service blueprints or ecosystem maps based on inputs from research

Define and prioritise opportunity areas and then translating them into concepts

Design wireframes, user flow diagrams and application maps

Create and test interactive prototypes

Document interaction guidelines

Prioritise MVP features and build a backlog

Support the definition of roadmaps in collaboration with strategy and technology teams

What will you be doing?

As a Senior Design Technologist, you’ll use the latest tools and techniques to take projects from idea to reality. You take a human-centred approach to development: finding relatable, new ways to use technology, helping others work within technical limits, and building user experiences that improve people’s lives.

We want you to have:

Openness to new ideas, an eye for detail, and a desire to work with designers

4 years of professional experience building responsive interfaces, working with different kinds of user events, manipulating UI elements, and applying animations/transitions

Worked on 3 production applications using a major MVVM or MVC framework (React, Angular, React Native, Flutter, etc.) and working with data from an API

Experience following data, security, and accessibility best practices

Ability to mentor junior Technologists and to work independently

Worked as part of an agile team using modern tools (Azure DevOps, Jira, GitHub, etc.)

A willingness to travel for key collaboration sessions

It would be a bonus if you had:

Experience with rapid prototyping and creating proof-of-concept demos

Helped designers or product managers work through technical feasibility and tradeoffs.

Built multiple kinds of frontend applications (i.e., web and mobile)

Full-stack skills, like coding for the cloud, writing API’s, or working with databases

Explored different flavours of technology, like IoT or AR/VR

Experience with complex scenarios, like e-commerce, internationalisation, or content management

Led technology on a project team (of any size)
