About The Job
At Google, we follow a simple but vital premise: "Focus on the user and all else will follow." Google’s Interaction Designers take complex tasks and make them intuitive and easy-to-use for billions of people around the globe. Throughout the design process—from creating user flows and wireframes to building user interface mockups and prototypes—you’ll envision how people will experience our products, and bring that vision to life in a way that feels inspired, refined, and even magical.
Google User Experience (UX) is made up of multi-disciplinary teams of UX Designers, Researchers, Writers, Content Strategists, Program Managers, and Engineers: we care deeply about the people who use our products. The UX team plays an integral part in gathering insights about the attitudes, emotions, and behaviors of people who use our products to inspire and inform design. We collaborate closely with each other and across teams to create industry-leading products that deliver value for the people who use them, and for Google’s businesses.
As an Interaction Designer, you’ll rely on user-centered design methods to craft industry-leading user experiences—from concept to execution. You’ll collaborate with your design partners to leverage and evolve the Google design language to build beautiful, innovative, and inspired products that people love to use.
We have a goal of building a product and ecosystem that unlocks opportunity for users, merchants, and financial institutions.
User experience is at the forefront of how we create intuitive, innovative, and beautiful products that people love. We strive to learn and understand our users’ needs, behaviors, and emotions to gather insights that inform product strategy and design. Our UX teams include designers, researchers, content strategists, and engineers who are passionate about quality, usability, and simplicity. We work on collaborative teams to solve complex challenges and craft experiences that highlight our products’ unique capabilities and personalities. Our work touches billions while exemplifying a key principle that is core to Google’s philosophy: “Focus on the user and all else will follow.”
- Drive complex design system projects and provide great storytelling to build cross-functional and cross product area alignment. Create platform rules and abstractions that stem from design decisions that are backed by solid rationale.
- Build wireframes and prototypes that communicate ideas, challenges, or decisions-points. Develop specifications for platform components and patterns.
- Drive work towards key milestones, while managing time, priorities, dependencies, and stakeholders effectively.
- Conduct research to strategize across the development cycle. Identify opportunities to bring new products (i.e. foundational) and evaluate post-launch to ensure that the products offer utility and delight to users (i.e. evaluative).
- Collaborate with other product disciplines (Product Management, Engineering, Marketing, etc.) to arrive at a collective product direction, understanding, and requirements. Be proactive in communicating user needs through delivering engaging and clear insights, and actionable recommendations to the team.
