Our people are our greatest strength. Bottle Rocket firmly believes in diversity, inclusion, and racial equality for everyone. We are committed to taking a bold stance against inequality and are asking you to join us. We know we have a lot to learn and a long way to go, but we also know that we are taking steps in the right direction.

Who you are:
As an Experience Architect, you are responsible for the vision of a project, one that balances the client’s business goals with the user’s wants and needs. You own the user experience, determine how the business and user requirements are met, and rally both the client and the Bottle Rocket team behind the vision. Your curiosity, creativity, empathy, humility, restlessness, and common sense serve you well. You are driven to understand "why." 

Grounded in the principles and best practices of user experience, you find patterns, deconstruct large challenges, and communicate ideas persuasively. You give thoughtful feedback and know your work is better when collaborating with others with different areas of expertise. You question assumptions, embrace testing hunches, and trust the data. Your work style adapts to new circumstances with the prudence to question convention when appropriate.

Remote opportunity available!

  • Perform a supportive role for more senior Experience Architects
  • Facilitate client meetings and work sessions to reveal business drivers, insights about users, and feasible solutions

  • Collaborate with Project Managers and Product Owners to capture and write requirements
  • Collaborate with Visual Designers as they create the polished designs

  • At least 4-5 years in a user experience role or relevant professional experience
  • Bachelor's degree
  • An open and collaborative work style
  • Experience working with stakeholders to define business strategy
  • Experience in requirements gathering, including features, functionality, and content
  • Comfortable working in highly flexible environments; able to regularly switch from project to project, and start as the project is just beginning or mid-process

  • The ability to defend design decisions and the methodologies you employ
  • Client-facing diplomacy and experience in relationship building
  • Excellent and persuasive communication skills; able to clearly articulate and sell your strategies in relatable and convincing ways
  • Ability to communicate (and receive) criticism constructively and thoughtfully 
  • Familiarity with research methods and when to use them including contextual inquiry, usability testing, heuristic review, A/B testing
  • A passion to make experiences that are useful, usable, and delightful

  • High-level understanding of CMS, feeds, APIs, and publishing tools
  • Experience with product service mapping and ecosystem modeling
