The senior level would be managing other designers, and would need to step into a leadership role. Needs to be comfortable with working closely on new pitches and winning new business, and then presenting to the client.
Mid level UX wouldn't be involved with client pitches and presentations but should know that the role would move in this direction so they should have the capability to do so.
The position is very hands on and solutions driven
Wil be executing projects and this person shouldn't need a lot of hand holding.
They've been looking to fill this role for a while and the people they've liked have gotten snatched up by Google and CMU. Or the candidates claim they can do UX but after the test it shows that it's not the case. Or they have been way too expensive for them.
Really needs to hire for this role as its been vacant for a while and they tried to get by without it but realized they need someone.
We are open to UX designers from the mid - senior level.
