Overview

The interaction designer thrives on identifying opportunities and generating solutions for people navigating information, technology, and communication. The more gnarly and tangled the opportunity space; the more engaged and enthusiastic the interaction designer. They deploy user research to better understand these spaces and to refine potential solutions. They collaborate with a multidisciplinary team to execute the traditional process of discover-design-deliver.

Who We Are

This position will work in Teague’s Global Design Studio. GDS works in a wide array of industries and opportunity spaces—from gestural user interfaces for children to service design for government policies to operating systems for space stations and everything in between. We are a small and elite team, so GDS designers have deep design expertise as much as they have resilient breadth to meet the wide variety and deep complexity of projects. Our job is to push boundaries every single day.

Why We Need This Position

Teague lives by the quality of our designers. Without smart, dedicated, and imaginative creators, we’re simply not able to deliver on the wide array of spaces in which we work. 

Who We’re Looking For

You are a designer looking to hone your craft by experimenting with design methods in wildly different contexts from one project to the next. You are endlessly curious about people and technology, and it’s a little scary how quickly you pick up on new ideas. Your approach to interaction design is resilient and faceted, because you understand digital screens are only one of the ways people interact with the world.

 

You know user research, stakeholder workshops, and your designerly intuition is how meaningful products and services are identified and reborn. You are adept at connecting the dots from research and can simultaneously entertain multiple, different potential solutions and models. You also know when it is time to make decisions and start doing.

 

You believe in the power of iteration, critique, and collaboration. When faced with ambiguity, you rapidly sketch a breadth of potential solutions as a sense-making activity. You understand that communicating design—and its rationale—is just as important as the design itself, so you are building a tool belt of different techniques for visualizing and communicating potential solutions: sketching, wireframing, writing, storyboarding, prototyping, coding, motion graphics, data visualization, or some other form of magic.

Skills & Experience Summary
