We were named one of Fortune's 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2017 and are regularly recognized by our employees as a best place to work.

Experience Design Solution Principal:

Are you passionate about digital products and leading teams of designers to work alongside business and technologists? Do you still like rolling up your sleeves to impact high-value engagements? We are seeking a top-tier leader to help grow our practice, drive sales and enhance team culture.

At Slalom Build, we work with mid-level and Fortune 100 companies alike in crafting premier digital experiences and transforming our clients' product landscape. To us, design is not something to hand-off, but a core part of product development from front to back. We believe in the true agile integration of design and that cross-collaboration is critical to upholding the integrity of high-quality digital products.

Working alongside cross-disciplinary Slalom leaders, you will be an integral part of our clients' projects from conceptualization to completion. You will bring a deep knowledge of end-to-end product delivery, including interaction with other designers, developers, product owners and client partners. We are looking for a leader who is confident in their ability to work with client priorities in a consultative environment.

You will be well versed in managing client expectations and lead efforts to invent custom solutions with high-value outcomes to the business, audience, and market. You will have a consistent and demonstrable record of using design thinking and modern strategy practices to solve business problems and carry projects through to completion.

At Slalom, Experience Design is stepping up its game at a national level and we want you to join us during this exciting time of growth. Our team consists of product designers and strategists with proven experience in customer research, co-creation workshop facilitation, service design, visual design, information architecture and interaction. Experience Design at Slalom is not just a valued offering for project work; rather it is a leading discipline for delivering lasting, meaningful and impactful work for our clients.

Does this feel like you? Do you apply empathy to design as well as client relationships? If so, we'd love to hear your story!
