UI Engineer, Look Ahead Product Design

UI Engineers at Xfinity Mobile will serve a critical role accelerating the creation of breakthrough design, identifying opportunities for proof-of-concept efforts, and bridging the Design and Engineering organizations. UI Engineers are responsible for owning the hypothesis and tangible answers to 'could we even do that?' in the form of high-fidelity prototypes and through the creation of tooling and code. They identify and refine design concepts through technical and creative insight; investigate existing capabilities, recommend potential platform and technology partnerships, and help transfer code and ideas between design and engineering.

You are the kind of person that harnesses their passion and curiosity to make brilliant ideas come to life. You will help define best practices and create scalable MVP solutions for multiple types of technologies and platforms. UI Engineers partner directly with our UX, Product, and technology teams to conceptualize and define new customer and service experience. As part of the Look Ahead team, you'll be challenged to use the full extent of your skills. You'll learn and build new ones. Along the way, you'll have the opportunity to grow personally and professionally, while having a lasting impact on some exceptional and unconventional product experiences.

- Depth in at least one: HTML/CSS, UIKit, JavaScript Framework (React, AngularJS, Ember, Backbone), or NodeJS
- Experience in the fundamentals of mobile application platforms (android and iOS) is required.
- Experience with industry standards for building user interface (accessibility, responsive design, grid, performance)
- Industry standards for building user interface (accessibility, responsive design, grid, performance)
- Understanding the design process in modern software organizations (wireframes, click-throughs, mocks, prototypes of all levels of fidelity)
- A deep passion for both code and creativity
- Familiarity with Sketch, Invision, Zeplin, or After Effects
- Familiarity with usability testing and preparing testable artifacts
- Familiarity with Git
- A curiosity and understanding of chat bot and AI technologies.

This role specifically requires

- Experience developing sophisticated UI prototypes
- A bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Design, or related field, or equivalent industry experience

To really catch our attention, you might offer
- A portfolio of creative, beautiful, and compelling user interface prototypes
