Support IxDF content writers, community managers and social media teams to bring a real UX designer’s perspective to all dimensions of our content, marketing and communication.
You have at least 10 years of experience working in UX/UI design (with a specialization in UI) and have a keen sense of communication. As a result, you have up-to-date knowledge of what UX designers need to learn, upskill and grow their careers.
You have your finger on the pulse of what the UX community likes to read, watch and learn about, and you have enough content-creation skills to produce the kind of material that the community is seeking.
Communication is an art you live and breathe. You know how to reach into the lofty heights where abstract ideas live—and bring them down to the “street level” so our students can hit the ground running with the valuable lessons you help them easily digest.
You have a proven ability to champion and empower students, especially aspiring designers and demonstrate/explain design processes, design thinking and user-centered design.
You have a proven ability to help students recognize the psychology of design and user experience.
You are an expert wordsmith with an eagle eye for the tiniest details and a keen ear for flow.
You are used to managing diverse responsibilities, and you are adept at dividing broad duties into small, executable tasks without losing sight of your overall goal. “Getting stuff done” is your middle name.
You are a practical idealist. You strive for perfection in everything you do, but you are keenly aware of the delays that can come with waiting for something to be perfect. You know how to create great results through incremental quick wins and MVPs, and when to go all in to create something perfect.
You are results-driven and motivated by achievement and goals. Mediocrity gives you the chills.
You have experience translating design know-how into documentation or reference material for other designers, or for people outside the design world.
You know that you will only accomplish your goals through solid judgement, hard work and diligence.
You have strong social intelligence and empathy—and the ability to engage well with different types of people through writing.
You have a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in User Experience, HCI, Information Technology, Communications or another related field—or enough industry experience in UI, UX and/or HCI in the absence of such an academic background.
You speak and write in English with native fluency.
You get bonus points if you …
have held a leadership role as a UX designer.
have past experience as a design teacher, mentor, coach or facilitator.
are tech-savvy and are profoundly familiar with web tools and popular design software.
have experience with working remotely.
