As a Sr. UX Designer for the Detail Page, you will craft simple, fluid, and beautiful experiences that accommodate our growing and diverse selection of products and programs, while enabling customers to act on a buying decision. You have an inventor’s spirit, highly refined aesthetic sensibilities and a fine-tuned ability to contextually communicate the right thing in the right place at the right time to customers. You are obsessed about customer experience; you never settle for good enough, and continually inspire those around you to do better for the customer. You love to dive into unknown territory and invent simple, elegant solutions to complex challenges. Your work will focus on mobile first, but you should be passionate about expanding features to create true multi-device experiences that move with the customer from one device to another.
