JOB: Freelance Senior / Lead UX Designer @ boutique agency

1 year gig for a freelance Senior / Lead UX Designer @ boutique agency

Project: Redesign of a well-known hospital system’s website + sub-sites

Location: Remote in USA; must be able to attend daily 9:15am ET standups

Note: Must be located in the USA and authorized to work in the USA (no visas, sorry)

hi ITPers!

Our client is a boutique East Coast-based digital agency with a friendly, down to earth vibe. They’re doing a complete redesign of a big-name hospital system’s website and supporting sites, and they’re looking for a seasoned Sr/Lead UX Designer for it.

They are rolling out new websites for this hospital system across departments, secondary hospitals, and education systems. This is a complex, multi-stage rollout that involves navigation, integrating comprehensive navigation schemas across stakeholders and subgroups, and requires design consistency. There’s also an opportunity to lead the client’s digital improvement plan after the initial launch.

As you can imagine, it’s a heavy content / CMS / navigation / IA sort of play, and they need someone seasoned who’s done that before, and who can also help project manage the project and keep things on track. Having experience with academics and doctors as stakeholders is a big plus.

You’d be paired with someone more visual / production-artist sort of person, so this gig has a strong UX design focus.

They want someone who preferably has some agency experience, is super hands on, and has a good leadership presence too. A healthcare background is helpful but not required.

Must be able to show examples of content-heavy content sites you’ve worked on.
