HUGE is a strategic design organization that develops commercially
successful websites, software and branding solutions for some of the
smartest and most demanding companies in the world. Since its founding
in 1999, HUGE has developed a methodology and culture that combine the
most relevant aspects of research, design and technology to grow client
businesses. Clients include IKEA, JetBlue Airways, Adult Swim, Amnesty
International, and Scholastic. The company is headquartered in New York
with offices in Los Angeles and Sweden.

Experience Leads play a critical role at HUGE. They are the nerve
center of our development methodology and take a large share of
responsibility for the success of the product or website. The Experience
Lead's mission is to deliver both power and pleasure to end users. This
involves taking a leadership role in key stages of research, product
definition, and design. In addition, Experience Leads mentor Interaction
Designers and other team members, helping to evolve the HUGE way of
working over time.

The HUGE process (http://www.hugeinc.com/process/) starts with
development of the product's conceptual model--understanding exactly who
the users are and describing and ranking their goals and behaviors.
Every project at HUGE includes substantial time for research and
experimentation, phases that are conducted mainly by interaction
designers.

SPECIFIC CHALLENGES FOR HUGE EXPERIENCE LEADS:

* Select research processes and other tools, and participate
in user testing or fieldwork as needed

* Partner with Senior Clients to determine product's mandate,
feature set, and measures of success

* Develop user personas, scenarios of use, task analysis,
interaction models, and experience briefs

* Oversee creation of mock ups, functional prototypes, and
other artifacts

* Collaborate with HUGE teammates and HUGE clients to ensure
that your great ideas survive the development process

* Be a part of an award-winning team, contribute to our
process and shared knowledge

* Humanize everything you touch: help users experience the joy
of discovery

BASIC INGREDIENTS:

* 5+ years experience creating interfaces, large scale
websites, or appliances

* Desire to prove you can lead a team producing the best work
in the industry

* Full understanding of how to apply the methodologies of
interaction design and user research to website and product
development

* Tendency to lose sleep over how to remove the need for
annoying "Cancel" buttons

* Proven client management skills

* Solid writing and visual communication skills

* Familiarity with usability heuristics and relevant HCI
literature

* Knowledge of Visio or other tools for generating wireframes
and behavior specifications

* Ability to play nicely with other highly talented types
