BermanBraun is looking for a creative, seasoned Information Architect / UX Designer to join its UX Team. The IA/UX Designer will help define how our network of consumer-oriented websites, apps and mobile products will evolve.

  • Oversee the consistent definition, implementation, and evolution of smart UX patterns and interaction models.

  • Stay current with advancements in interactive and mobile technology as well as competitive products, and advocate for the appropriate application of those advancements in our own products.
  • Run or direct usability testing as appropriate.
  • Act as a primary user advocate across our products.
  • Participate in the development of new business.
  • Create new ideas for products, content, games and advertising solutions.
