Are you ready to join Leidos all-star team? Through training, teamwork, and exposure to challenging technical work, let Leidos show how to accelerate your career path.
The Leidos Innovations Center has an exciting opening for you, our next Senior UI/UX Designer, to assist with the design, deployment, and maintenance of a full stack containerized micro-services architecture for the D3P program. Work in either Bethesda, MD or Reston, VA! The DOMEX Data Discovery Platform (D3P) program is a next generation machine learning pipeline platform that will provide cutting edge data enrichment, triage, and analytics capabilities to Defense and Intelligence Community members.
You will work closely with the D3P chief architect, systems engineers, software engineers, and data scientists to provide UI design and User Experience support and concepts for the end-user-facing multi-media search and data exploitation system. D3P is advancing the state of the art in mission-focused big data analytics tools and micro-service development spanning the breadth of Agile sprints to multiyear research and development cycles. D3P has been operational now for 18 months and is moving into a phase where greater user engagement and system adoption is growing beyond the initial UX concepts.
Fun stuff you will do on the job:
- Work with the team using a Release-based-scrum and will drive research activities, derive insights, generate concepts, communicate those concepts visually, and work with developers and product managers to ensure their successful development.
- Work on cross-functional teams of experts in design, system engineering, technical architecture, software engineering and data science to deliver digital products and services for the customer.
- Create user flows, low-fidelity wireframes, high-fidelity prototypes, conduct usability testing, and lead focus groups and workshops, all of which will require a combination of technical and communication skills.
- Participate in a release-based design process understanding the user journey, framing challenges/issues from a UX perspective, create compelling user stories, and develop innovative methods and practices to maximize user engagement and D3P usage.
- You will work with D3P team members to develop clear and powerful experiences for users, peers, managers, and agency executives.
