We’re looking for a Senior Design Technologist to join our expanding UX practice. Front-end developers with design experience, or UX designers with a bent towards UI development have the hybrid skills we seek for this new role. We’re pushing beyond the tired “Should Designers Code?” debate, and rounding out our expanding User Experience team with a specialized skill set to enable all of us to do our best work.
You will be the technical liaison between a research-driven, non-technical UX team, and our engineering counterparts in Research & Development (R&D). Your experience and perspective is
a valuable addition to our conversations and collaborations, and your work will help assess the technical impact and requirements of design decisions.
We want someone who takes initiative and feedback equally well. This role is about exploration, experimentation, and validation through prototyping. You’ll be working closely with your UX Design peers to prove design concepts in code, working side-by-side with UX Research to provide proofs of concept in support of their research plans and testing, and collaborating with full-stack Engineers to build optimal, design-driven experiences for our users. We’re a fluid, collaborative product team— you’ll also be working closely with Quality Engineers, Technical Writers, Product Managers, and Scrum Masters.
This role reports to the Director of User Experience.

Demonstrated ability to “sketch in code” — you use design as a tool to communicate ideas and show what’s possible
Advance Boomi’s capabilities through technical experimentation, and informed recommendations — how might we do things differently; as well as how do we begin doing things differently (e.g., responsive design)
Collaborate and communicate across teams and roles
Design with consistency, and with an attention to detail
Exhibit familiarity with, and a shared value for, user-centered design and its core principles
Contribute to our design systems, UI guidelines, and their maintenance

Requirements of this Position
Professional experience in the design and/or front-end development of complex business systems and applications, or product development
Strong empathy for our users, and the ability to understand their needs
Demonstrated ability to translate technical requirements and considerations to a non-technical group of designers

A minimum of 5 years experience writing semantic HTML, with strong knowledge of HTML 5.
Exceptional verbal and visual communication skills
The ability to effectively manage “up”
Ability to multitask and prioritize
Occasional travel spanning 2-5 days (<10% travel)
The desire to collaborate, with the ability to operate with minimal oversight
Comfort operating as a developer adjacent to, but outside of, the engineering department
A willingness to provide and accept constructive criticism
A portfolio of work and/or code samples to show us how your ideas manifest (e.g., personal website, Github account, etc.)
Visual thinkers with an affinity for the whiteboard
Experience as a project lead
Experience building APIs
Experience working in Agile environments
