Position Description:

Interaction Designers lead digital experience design for the in-house creative team at Box, taking lead on deeply understanding customer needs and behavior and using these insights to shape experiences that delight. 
This is a marketing and creative role, not a product development role.
Our interaction designers craft exceptional, next-generation experiences as part of a comprehensive in-house agency. Each designer leverages depth in a specific field — insights and personas, data-driven application design, and/or usability research — to infuse customer-centric thinking into the design solutions that will define our go-forward marketing programs, and most notably the massive evolution we intend to shape on Box.com. The interaction designers will craft insights-driven personas, define experience flows across temporal experiences, and lead out the creation of wireframes and similar artifacts to drive a comprehensive view of the creative program. As programs reach certain checkpoints, the interaction designer takes lead on usability testing, and partners closely with the marketing operations team to ensure the learning agenda carries into the metrics within the marketing dashboard.
The optimal candidate will be well versed in the underlying ideas behind participatory marketing, while being deeply grounded in the fundamentals of usability. The right candidate will be the voice of the customer in the experience, while continuously championing the brand in the engagement. You should be able to cogently think through the modern requirements of social engagement, distributed application and content development, and using marketing as a service rather than a bland sales tactic.
