Clearhead, named “5th Fastest Growing Small Company” in Central Texas and now proudly wearing the recently awarded "Best Places to Work in Austin" for 2016 title is looking for a Senior UX/UI Design Lead to compliment our whip-smart creative team.



Smart, intuitive, data-driven, creative, passionate and FUN problem solver to join our team as our Senior UX/UI Design Lead.

The Overview

The UX/UI Design Lead will lead and execute toward client deliverables. Our bread and butter is A/B testing but we’re taking on some bigger design challenges, injecting user feedback and data into the design process early on. You are the person who’s there from beginning to end, knows the ins & outs, insuring we’re working towards a vision for our Data-Driven Redesign projects.

Your Day

Our UX/UI Design Lead is a hybrid player/coach — getting your hands dirty in the day-to-day while providing vision and guidance to deliver for clients.

  • Facilitate client discussion and provide actionable next steps for you and the team —
  • Provide a vision and a process to get there
  • Research (through user testing and digging-in) to surface issues and areas for improving customer experiences
  • Contribute ideas and solutions to make customer experiences better
  • Design and prototype experiences to test
  • Communicate with the team (developers, analysts, project & product managers) to help prototypes come to life
  • Present and communicate solutions and process
  • Iterate based on user feedback
  • Learn and collaborate with the design team


This position requires a few things that might be different from other design positions...

  • Interest in research and data (from user testing to analytics)
  • The ability to focus on details and think big-picture, from the user’s & business perspective
  • Interest in measuring and improving upon your designs
  • Task management and fast context switching
  • Familiarity with A/B testing

Plus the usual suspects...

  • 5+ years of industry experience
  • UI Design (tools we use: Sketch, Illustrator, Photoshop)
  • Prototyping (tools we use: InVision, Avure)
  • Content flow and user experience
  • Strong communication skills; both digitally and client-facing
  • Ability to adapt to client styles and visual language
  • Self-motivated
  • Live in Austin, Texas or are willing to let us relocate you (it's beautiful here)

Bonus You

  • Experience designing for high touch clients
  • Interest in Lean Startup and Lean UX
  • Working knowledge of HTML/CSS
  • Familiar with e-commerce IA/UX
  • Love live music and/or office-dogs and/or sports and/or craft beer
  • Eager to be part of a team that lives their values

To be Clearhead is to be...

Curious. We value sincere interest in what makes things tick -- people, businesses, products & designs. We want to understand the what and the why of every problem we solve.

Open. We value transparency with our employees, our clients and our partners. We want to invite you all into this experiment.

Confident. We trust that our recommendations are likely to succeed on the basis of data. We are not afraid to disrupt, change or fail fast in pursuit of greatness.

Appreciative. We value our time together - the work and the play - with the co-workers, partners & clients we admire and enjoy.

Balanced. We endeavor to find that magical intersection at the corners of inspiration & pragmatism; design & data; work, play & family; urgency & patience; and innovation & evidence.
