Manager UX Design – Lifion

| Greater NYC Area

We’re looking for an exceptionally talented, inventive, and thoughtful UX designer to join us in building a revolutionary new suite of products to make people happier and more productive at work.

Traditional HR software is undergoing radical transformation. Lifion by ADP is leading this change, building a new generation of products to help organizations manage, engage, and develop their workforces. We’re taking the pain out of HR management, and empowering employees and people leaders.

The UX Lead for Lifion (ADP’s Next Gen HCM) will define the user experience for many core, platform based web products on both desktop and mobile. These products solve real user and business problems, through a user centered design process.

Lifion is a passionate, innovative, and rapidly growing team of UX designers, researchers, engineers, and product managers working in a fast-paced, user-centric environment. The right candidate will bring enthusiasm, invention, and fearlessness to the role, coupled with a strong desire to solve problems for millions of users around the world.

Responsibilities:

  • Lead and define the UX vision for the Lifion platform core app user experiences.
  • Collaborate effectively with product management, engineering, and user research throughout release cycles
  • Lead and set direction for associate designers, working towards a common vision
  • Stay on top of changing UX design technologies, as well as industry standards to ensure leading-edge interpretation and execution of design applications
  • Define best practices and contribute to Lifion’s design system
  • Be able to balance strategic leadership with strong hands-on UX problem solving
  • Help drive user research and testing efforts
  • Participate in the recruitment and interview process for new Lifion UX designers

Qualifications:

  • Experience creating sophisticated, elegant design and a desire to help others produce the same. You know how to set goals and motivate others to reach them, and enjoy coaching and mentoring a team
  • You’ve shipped product: you know the challenges (and rewards!) of release cycles and how to partner across the organization at every stage, shipping quickly and at the highest level of quality
  • Demonstrated ability to successfully manage several large projects simultaneously
  • Ability to work hand-in-hand with product team members on requirements and design
  • Experience prototyping on multiple platforms
  • Ability to act as an internal consultant providing business and technical guidance: you’re comfortable talking about business models and analytics
  • At least 5 years of industry experience (preferably in an agile environment), with minimum of two managing and guiding teams
  • An exceptional design portfolio with well-thought-out interactions and interface designs across both web and mobile applications

An Insider's view of Lifion by ADP

What are some social events your company does?

There are lots of events constantly going on at Lifion! From meetups to tech talks to our weekly Thursday happy hours, there's a good mix of work and play. We also do outings: in my one year of working here we’ve done laser tag, Barcade, happy hour on a boat, the vessel, a picnic in central park, escape the room, VR world, and more.

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The People Ops Team is in full swing for FY19 Performance Reviews. It's an exciting time for the business, but requires a lot of backend work & support for our associates. We're drafting communications and timelines for management & associates, and creating the right process to gather ratings and self-assessments for a great associate experience.

Director, People Operations

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I have been able to work with many different teams since I started here and have grown tremendously. I have worked with new product teams, Reliability teams and now work with Security and Compliance teams. This experience has enriched my technical and product knowledge, and I get to be part of the teams which are solving complex business problems.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Creativity is best fueled by collaboration, and has two simple ingredients: First, you hire passionate & talented people, people who care about users and who want to solve meaningful complex problems. Then, you support a culture of openness, with every designer constantly sharing their best ideas across the whole org. That's how creativity thrives!

Chris

Head of UX

What makes someone successful on your team?

Success on our team is enjoying ownership over our work while staying open to suggestions. We have an open-door policy to share knowledge with one another, strengthening us individually and as a team. We check our egos at the door and are lucky enough to be surrounded by people who feel like family more than coworkers.
