Full-time User Experience Lead

at TouchCast in New York

Do you enjoy you making the complex simple? Do you believe that the details are the product? Do you dream up animations and flow rather than just interfaces? If so you might be right to join TouchCast, where we are dreaming up the future of video.

We're looking for a user experience champion to lead our design team, work hand-in-hand with the Head of Product and CTO to craft the next generation of our smart video product suite. We move quickly with a developer-heavy team that can quickly execute your design work. Be prepared to jump into the deep end with us to solve UX problems. Beyond good design chops, we want someone who is: well-organized (your PSD / Sketch layers are neat); a good communicator (verbally as well as visually with documentation); and experienced setting creative direction and managing resources.

TouchCast is the world’s fastest growing end-to-end video solution. We offer the most powerful video tools through ‘Smart Video’ -- video that is interactive, easy-to-make and collaborative. You’ll be designing across three core video authoring applications as well as a secure video management system. Enterprise companies use our tools for internal communications all over the world. Educators use our products for teaching, student presentations, and collaboration. And we’re just getting started.

Joining the TouchCast team means joining our family. We are 60+ passionate, committed people. We enthusiastically build products that serve our clients well and their success will always be job one.

Online portfolio required to apply. We place a heavy emphasis on documentation (like specs and prototypes) to communicate the designs with the team of junior designers, product managers and engineers.
