Job Title:

Experience Design Consultant

Are you looking for a career path that teams you up with clients and technologists to build products in an agile and iterative fashion? Do you want to work on impactful digital products that are used and measured? We are seeking a product designer to join our team as a project lead who will assist in crafting seamless application experiences. At Slalom, we are passionate about product and outcomes. We work with mid-level, Fortune 100 companies and Federal agencies alike in crafting premier products and transforming our client’s internal teams. We’re all about relationships, and we’re looking for you to lead both client and internal relationships to build our team brand and maturity.

To us, design is not something to hand-off, but an integral part of product development from front to back. We believe in true agile integration of design, and that cross-collaboration is critical to balancing the desirability, viability, and feasibility of products. As a consultant, you’ll work alongside our technical teams to implement these solutions.

You will be a critical component of our clients’ projects in execution. You will need knowledge of working directly with technical teams while upholding the desirability of UI experience, while interacting with other designers and client alike and handling client expectations. You should have a consistent record of using design thinking to solve business problems. Applicants should be very confident in their ability to hear and manage client priorities in a consultative environment.

At Slalom, Experience Design is stepping up its game at a national level and we want you to join us during this exciting time of growth. Our team consists of product designers with proven experience in visual design, information architecture and interactions. Experience Design at Slalom is not just a valued offering for project work; rather it is a leading discipline for delivering lasting, meaningful and impactful work for our clients.

Does this feel like you? Do you apply empathy to design as well as client relationships? If so, we'd love to hear your story!
