Job Description

Senior UX Designer (Contractor)

The Role

As UX Designers at Riot, we are responsible for design work in high-scope product areas that are complex and ambiguous. Our work includes end-to-end experience design. The spaces will generally encompass multiple features and span across teams. We work from concept through development and collaborate with other designers to achieve our goals.

As a UX Designer III on the Content Experiences initiative, you will work with our Dublin team to design and prototype solutions for Riot's store, events, new content types, Loot and Collection experiences. You will be an adept storyteller, able to present the player experience to members of your team. You will apply design thinking and take a broad approach to ensure a uniform pattern of interaction and present the right decisions to players at each moment of their journey. You'll partner with members of the agile team to establish targets for the player experience and interaction design.

Responsibilities:
• Communicate your data-informed vision and design rationale to stakeholders
• Provide appropriate design artifacts for your team, including journey maps, flow diagrams, wireframes, mockups, prototypes, and occasionally high fidelity shippable assets in League of Legends' visual style
• Break down experiences thoughtfully so that your team can plan and ship value incrementally
• Ensure experiential quality and consistency across features end-to-end

Required Qualifications:
• 6+ years experience in user experience design or interactive design
• Comfortable planning and estimating UX effort for projects
• Experience with Adobe Creative Suite, Figma, Sketch or other industry design and prototyping tools

Desired Qualifications:
• BA/BS degree in Human-Computer Interaction, Interaction/Interface Design, Communication Design, Graphic Design, or equivalent experience
• Experience designing for PC and mobile games

We will review your work as a part of the application process, so please provide a portfolio link or work samples with your application.

For this role, you'll find success through craft expertise that prioritizes the delight of players. We will look at your past studies, experience, and your personal relationship with games. If you embody player empathy and care about the experiences of players, this could be the role for you!
