Freelance Senior UX Designer

Try new things. Influence processes. Do work you can be proud of.  Be a Freelance Senior UX Designer at Fluid!

At Fluid we work to live, not live to work.  Taking risks and doing new things is core to what we do. We think great ideas can come from anyone, regardless of role or level. You are not defined by your job description.  We are a team of generalists and value flexibility and adaptability. If you want to partner with high-profile brands and directly impact a product, then this is the place for you. Most importantly, if you believe that the people make a great company, then this is definitely the place for you!

We are looking for a passionate and highly collaborative Freelance Senior UX Designer to support our NY design team for ~3-months (potentially longer).

The Team

You will be working with a talented group of designers.  Egos are not part of our culture. We support each other while having fun and getting $h*t done.  Individuals are self-motivated, proactive and action-based. We take pride in the work we do and the solutions we provide our customers.

You

You understand the established design patterns and best practices, yet you have the vision and capability to adapt and create design solutions for a client’s unique brand and business needs.

You obsess until you’ve created intuitive navigation, site maps and user flows.  You might even love defining taxonomies and metadata models.

Best practices and design principles are core to your process for both highly engaging interactive sites as well as traditional content sites, but you know when to ignore them and move into the next design frontier. 

You can design for different technologies. You love a challenge from your team and your clients.
