Parsons Corporation UX Designer in Centreville, Virginia
Minimum Clearance Required to Start:
We are looking for a proactive, talented, and flexible UX Designer to join our growing team on a fast-moving custom-built enterprise application ecosystem.
If you have a passion for leveraging human-centered design to optimize and enhance the user experience for both mobile and web-based software solutions, we want to hear from you. You enjoy utilizing a modern set of technical and design tools, and you’re comfortable engaging in scalable requirements gathering, design and development in an Agile environment. You can pivot to meet ongoing and often changeable customer requirements, and you don’t mind shifting direction when needed. You’re conscious of deadlines and when you have to work under pressure, you can, without compromising your creative and aesthetic standards. You’re experienced in wireframing, Mid-fi and Hi-FI prototyping, and you enjoy interacting with customers and incorporating their feedback into your designs. Familiarity with government contracting and the unique nature of that sector would be a significant advantage in this role, in addition to experience working in a remote/virtual setting with disparately located team members. We work hard to foster a supportive and loyal team dynamic, and we’re looking for people who share that spirit and goal. If this sounds like you, we look forward to meeting you!
