As a Data Visualization Designer you will lead design efforts for novel, cutting edge mobile, web, and software applications in ML/AI, big data, aerospace, and mission planning. Many of the systems we develop are the first of their kind and are highly specialized for the military personnel and first responders who use them. The systems we work on are naturally complex and must be quickly simplified for human use and cognition. We strongly believe that user-centered design is the only methodology to properly develop these systems. Therefore we are seeking a Data Visualization Designer to conduct user research and design, prototype, and evaluate novel visualizations for systems under development.

The person filling this role will require superior communication and presentation skills. This person will be expected to conduct user research exercises to gain domain knowledge/insights and evaluate prototypes. This person must also be able to convey ideas/concepts to the rest of the development team and to stakeholders. This role requires a design background: either formal training or experience designing applications. Also, the ability to convey ideas visually through sketches, prototypes, or software tools is a necessity. Finally the person should have a working knowledge of programming languages to implement a proof-of-concept of designs. Being proficient in all of these areas is not necessary, however being able to understand and interact with developers is necessary.

Skills and Requirements:

US CITIZENSHIP REQUIRED or the ability to obtain a U.S. Security Clearance

• M.S. or Ph.D. in Human Computer Interaction that focuses on data visualization, or equivalent

• At least 2-3 years of experience in design and prototyping
