We have an exciting opportunity for an Interaction Designer/Prototyper
to join a small, cross-functional team within Intuit's Consumer Tax
Group. The Team's mission is to deliver enhancements for existing
software products, conceptualize new products and services to promote
long term growth, and champion customer driven innovation within the

As a full member of the Team, the successful candidate will be
responsible for helping to generate and visualize concepts by creating
storyboards, building static and interactive prototypes and so on, but
will be expected to contribute to all phases of the Team's work,
including discovery, idea generation, conceptualization, iterative
design and, ultimately, concept evaluations with prospective customers.

This is a unique opportunity for a highly motivated, creative and
independently-minded individual to apply their imagination, design and
prototyping skills to a variety of fast-paced, exploratory projects, and
to help coach others in the principles and practices of design and

Successful candidates will have strong design skills, and extensive
experience with the tools and techniques of user interface simulation
and prototyping. They will be current with design trends, and will want
to keep other Team members up to speed. They will also have experience
in most or all of the following stages of the design process: high-level
experience design, scenario development, storyboarding, information
architecture, use of wire frames, graphical user interface design and
software application development.

Equally important will be the ability to collaborate in a
cross-functional environment, contributing to making the sum greater
than the parts. Ideal candidates will welcome co-workers' ideas and
input, and will be adept at influencing them in return, the goal being
to deliver the best possible outcomes for customers. These candidates
will relish opportunities to share their knowledge and coach others who
may have less design experience, so excellent communication skills and
professional judgment are therefore required.
Qualifications : Bachelors degree in a relevant design discipline.
A minimum of 3 years experience in user interface design for software
and/or interactive hardware. Web design experience is welcome, but is
not sufficient on its own for this position.
Demonstrable design and prototyping skills: candidates will be expected
to present a strong and varied portfolio.
Proven effectiveness working within cross-functional teams to include
engineering, product management, and marketing as well as visual design
and user research.
Designing user experiences for consumer products is a plus.
Skilled use of all major design and multimedia software is expected, and
familiarity with Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Outlook) is preferred
