Academy is looking for a freelance UX Lead to work on a variety of projects.

The ideal candidate will be an expert in Product Design, Research, and Strategy. Candidates should feel comfortable overseeing teams who conduct research, derive strategy and facilitate Design Sprints. They should know how to build wireframes, prototypes, and designs using atomic design principles and systems architecture. They should be comfortable using programs like Sketch, InVision, Zeplin, and other prototyping tools. They will have experience working collaboratively with product and development teams.

Academy was founded on the principle that bringing UX & Design Thinking into organizations can transform their products, services, and strategies and can build a better world around us. We have a strong belief that everyone can be creative we just need to be taught how. According to a 2015 study, over the past 10 years, design-led companies have outperformed the S&P 500 by an extraordinary 211%. This struck a chord with Academy and our mission became clear that we needed to consult and train organizations on how to apply Design Thinking principles. We do so by implementing modern Design Thinking tools like Design Sprints, which provide a framework for teams to design, prototype and test their ideas in 5 days. We leave teams with the tools they need to carry on this type of work even when we are not around.

Responsibilities

Build Wireframes, Design Language Systems, User Flows, UI, and Prototypes.

Qualifications
Minimum qualifications:
5-10 years of relevant work experience in a Design and UX focused organization, including experience with usability studies, wireframing, prototyping, product designs, design practices, and focus groups, etc.
