Help bring Alexa into the vehicle and give customers access to services they need while keeping them safe. Our world-class team of researchers, designers, and prototypers develops customer-obsessed experiences from the broad range of inputs and outputs vehicles offer. What we build in this 'extreme' multi-modal environment establishes new design patterns and sets standards for other areas of design. It's a fast-paced, fun, and rewarding opportunity.

A day in the life
As a Senior Multi-modal UX Designer, you lead, define, and drive the interaction design for in-vehicle experiences. You are familiar with vehicle HMI and have experience curating a great UX that leverages screens, voice, physical controls, and haptics. You leverage research to ground ideas in customer needs, while thinking big to create ambitious ideas for which no design patterns exist. You establish collaborative processes with PMs and engineers to bring ideas to life and translate business needs into customer-focused UX. You communicate ideas effectively, drive ideas to solid design deliverables, and help establish success metrics to optimize results.


About the hiring group
Auto UX is optimized for an agile product development environment. UX Researchers conduct qual studies to identify and prioritize opportunities. They also conduct quant studies to evaluate or validate ideas. Visual and Voice designers leverage insights to craft multi-modal experiences. They also contribute to product strategy and requirements. A Design Technologist builds prototypes for testing and demos, and Producers drive the process through iterations to a Minimum Loveable Product (MLP). Our team also provides direction to automakers integrating out products to ensure customer receive a bar-raising Alexa experience.

Job responsibilities
We are looking for a designer who can:
· Leverage experience with skills and appstore flows to drive discovery of new services and integrate them into a customer's Alexa experience
· Produce user flows, wire frames, lite prototypes, and rigorous user interface specifications that consider voice and visual interactions
· Contribute design requirements to specs and work with PM to flesh out the vision of the product
· Confidently communicate rationale for design decisions in executive-level design reviews
· Draw on intuition, but initiate research and testing efforts as needed
· Define success metrics that measure success and inform ongoing improvement efforts
· Codify designs into written guidelines and requirements
· Start simple while not losing sight of the long-term vision
· Thrive in a nimble, start-up like environment
