24 Oct 2006 - 2:55pm

Location: Jersey City, NJ
Responsible the design and prototyping of a compelling product interface
that meets the needs of various stakeholders. The user-interface designer
leads and coordinates the prototyping and design of the user interface, by:
* capturing requirements on the user interface, including usability
* building user-interface prototypes
* involving other stakeholders of the user interface, such as end-users, in
usability reviews and use testing sessions reviewing and providing the
appropriate feedback on the final implementation of the user interface, as
created by other developers; that is, designers and implementers.
The user-interface designer does not implement the user interface. Instead,
a user-interface designer focuses and devotes time only on the design and
the "visual shaping" of the user interface, because:
the skills required by a user-interface designer often need to be improved
and optimized for the current project and application type, with potentially
unique usability requirements, and this requires both time and focus
the risk of "mixed allegiances" must be delimited; that is, the
user-interface designer needs to be influenced more by usability
considerations than implementation considerations
