As a division of Turner, B/R has gained all the advantages of a large media company while maintaining its vibrant startup culture. We work in a fast paced, 24-7 field in a laid back environment (those who do not want to work nights and weekends need not apply). You'll also be in a role that allows you to work with multiple groups and networks.
The Senior UX/Interaction Designer role on the product team owns the interaction, information architecture, and functional design of products and features across Bleacher Report, including the website, mobile apps, and internal tools. Drawing on your own user and internal research, you will envision how people experience our products and bring that vision to life by developing usability tests, user flows, wireframes, UI mockups, and prototypes. You will work with Visual Designers, Engineering, and Product Managers to develop the design for new products/features, going from whiteboard concepts to launched in production.
