CX Service Designer
Acquia is the open source digital experience company. We provide the world's most ambitious brands with technology (built around Drupal) that allows them to embrace innovation and create customer moments that matter. At Acquia we believe in the power of community and collaboration - giving our customers the freedom to build tomorrow on their terms.
Headquartered in the U.S., we have been named as one of North America’s fastest growing software companies as reported by Deloitte and Inc. Magazine, and have been rated a leader by the analyst community and named one of the Best Places to Work by the Boston Business Journal. We are Acquia. We are building for the future of the web, and we want you to be a part of it.
Acquia is seeking a CX (Customer Experience) Service Designer to deliver the customer experience for some of the company’s key products and services. You know that creating a truly memorable customer experience goes beyond the product UI, that good design requires strong partnerships across teams, and you’re an advocate for such. You are strong in service design and UX design with an interest and perhaps a bit of experience in research. We are looking for innovators; professionals with an unrelenting belief in the power of design to transform businesses, and with the passion and commitment to help Acquia become recognized for elegant and powerful product experiences. You approach things systemically and are a natural at zooming out to see the big picture, then diving in to nail the important details. You are equally as comfortable running a workshop as you are heads down in designing software. You enjoy solving problems.
You’ll be joining a talented team of CX Designers, UX Designers, and Researchers, chartering and executing on projects to create the best possible customer experiences for people developing rich digital experiences with Drupal. Our customers are a savvy, demanding group; you and this team are responsible for delivering best-of-breed applications and customer journeys in a fast-paced, agile, startup-like environment.
