The Associate UX Strategist is a client-facing role on the Web department’s Strategy & UX team. This team focuses on understanding and researching our B2B and B2C client’s brand, business, and customer needs through high-impact user experience solutions.

As an Associate UX Strategist, you'll balance the needs of 829's clients and their audiences through valuable, conversion-oriented website strategy. By collaborating with our clients and the agency's in-house team of designers, developers, producers, and account managers, you’ll formulate a successful foundation for the digital user experiences we deliver.

Both individually and in partnership with more senior team members, you’ll be responsible for research activities and deliverables that include stakeholder workshops, subject matter expert interviews, digital surveys, competitor analysis, persona development, analytics reviews, information architecture, and sitemaps. The research comes to life in Figma as you collaborate closely with designers on Figma-based wireframes.

This position involves consistent high-quality consultative work directly with our clients. You will get to know everything about your client’s goals, personalities, and priorities. You will play an important role in presenting the thought process behind the work to clients, incorporating their feedback, and producing high-quality deliverables and strategic solutions.

What You’ll Do

  • Do the research. Conduct competitive, industry, and user research through workshops, user testing exercises, surveys, and any other format that gets you the insights you need.
  • Create the architectural foundation of large-scale websites. Create sitemaps that account for all pages on a website. Support your sitemap with page-specific content outlines when appropriate, and account for all fields/data that will comprise key pages.
  • Contribute to wireframe development. Bring website architecture to life through Figma-based wireframe development.
  • Collaborate with digital agency peers. Review the work and collaborate with 829’s designers and developers, providing meaningful feedback. Contribute to learning and development during weekly department meetings.
  • Uphold industry best practices. Ensure that best practices are being followed. Evolve processes, offerings, and deliverable formats when you see opportunities to make improvements.
  • Have a baseline understanding of how websites are built using waterfall and agile processes. You are familiar with or have ideally past experience working with Wordpress and/or Drupal content management systems, including the awareness to collaborate with designers, developers, and other agency peers when needed.
  • Client collaboration experience. Exceptional communication, presentation, and organizational skills.
  • Has the ability to problem solve, confidently make decisions, and lead projects with empathy and authority. 829 works across a variety of different industries and on projects with varying complexity. You’ll be successful in this role if the idea of learning and problem solving excites you.
  • An understanding of integrated digital marketing and its website strategy implications. The foresight and understanding of how to work with digital marketing team members on formulating a solid strategic direction, taking into account SEO, UI design, and paid media.

What You’ll Bring

  • 1 - 2 years of experience in website-focused UX. While we will consider candidates with in-house experience, an agency background is preferred. You should have a baseline understanding of how websites are built using waterfall and agile processes, and the awareness to collaborate with designers, developers, and other personnel when necessary.
  • A portfolio of previous strategic UX work samples - your portfolio should clearly exhibit the ability to conduct research and translate your findings into recommendations including sitemaps and wireframes.
  • Client collaboration - exceptional communication, presentation and organizational skills.
