Able to take charge of the UX design process from start to finish, working across multiple disciplines to see designs from inception to use in production

Passionate about investigating new trends, techniques, and technologies and using them to keep products and processes innovative but not at the expense of being highly effective

  • Lead UX initiatives, gather requirements, wireframe, design in high fidelity, develop prototypes, deliver production quality assets, and ensure that implementations meet expectations.
  • Possess the critical thinking skills, inventiveness, and work ethic required to design complex workflows, data-rich views and interactive visualizations.
  • Design with the Cisco security portfolio in mind by building cross-team relationships, guiding integration UX efforts, digging into API documentation and performing other investigative tasks.
  • Work with other product teams in Cisco's Security Business Group to standardize on UI elements and components for a uniform look and feel and shared capabilities across the portfolio.
  • Design to the vision while being able to deliver piecemeal and iteratively for rapid release cycles.

Qualifications:

  • A wide range of skills that spans interviewing stakeholders to stubbing out interaction patterns in prototyping tools or in code.
  • Experience designing solutions representing large, complex data sets, enterprise type workflows, and interactive visualizations in an intuitive manner.
  • Experience with integration-focused product ecosystems and the challenges involved (APIs, authorization models, context switching, etc.).
  • Experience writing clear and purposeful stories in ticket systems such as GitHub and breaking designs into manageable units of work.
  • Mastery of Sketch, Invision, DSM, Adobe Creative Suite, or other design software packages.
  • Experience with HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, and modern prototyping tools.
