Lead, UX Designer

About Magic Leap

Our vision is a world where the physical and digital are one. Our mission is to amplify human potential by delivering the most immersive AR platform, so people can intuitively see, hear, and touch digital content in the physical world. 

We are developing the most immersive AR device for enterprise, and are continuing to build a powerful team to help us do that.

Job Description

We’re hiring a Lead UX Designer that can help us solve immediate, category-defining design problems for Augmented Reality. The ideal candidate has a portfolio that demonstrates experience solving for complex workflows and designing innovative interactions for a wide variety of users and interfaces. 

This is a great opportunity for an individual contributor who has a powerful vision for what a spatial platform can be. You’ll design end-to-end experiences for people, spanning a breadth of digital properties from our on-device operating system to off-device developer tools—setting a standard of interaction that developers and end-users will measure all others against.

You should have an uncanny ability to create and articulate interactive concepts, break down abstract problems into wireframes that are easily understood by the entire team. You’re an individual contributor, but you also enjoy working with and mentoring the junior staff. You have the critical thinking skills to know what is adaptable from older design frameworks, and how to start exploring the unknown. You always seek to learn from others; from success, as well as failure. You think on your feet, and thrive on challenges that have never been solved before. 

Responsibilities

  • Drive the entire design process for assigned features/areas from discovery through detailed specification and QA
  • Prepare and facilitate discovery workshops to understand user/customer/business needs
  • Create low to high-fidelity wireframes/mockups/prototypes to communicate design flows and interaction specifications
  • Collaborate and iterate seamlessly with other disciplines within the design org (research, industrial design, visual design, audio design, copywriting, etc.)
  • Partner closely with cross-functional teams including product managers, software engineers, and hardware engineers
  • Use research-driven methods to support best-practice recommendations
  • Champion the end user experience and be an advocate for quality at every turn
  • Serve as a representative for interactive design internally at Magic Leap
  • Create interactive design best practices and frameworks for augmented reality
  • Be a benevolent and understanding teacher, and mentor to our rising stars
  • Frequently review and assess the design quality of ongoing projects to ensure that we only ship world-class experiences

Qualifications

  • 10+ years of relevant professional experience
  • Outstanding interaction and product design skills
  • Excellent communication and facilitation skills
  • Track record of designing and shipping successful experiences
  • Team player capable of cooperating well within a diverse team of talented designers and cross-functional partners.
  • Expert in current industry-standard UX tools such as Figma. 3D software and Adobe CS is a bonus

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience designing spatial interfaces 
  • Experience designing tools/platforms for developers and/or admins
  • Experience designing for enterprise-focused platforms is a plus

Education

  • Degree in UX/Interaction Design, Human-Computer Interaction, or related field
