UX Designer (40-hour project / two-week timeline)

Location: DC-Washington
Company Order Number: 1586
# of openings: 1

Description

Brainstorm Creative Resources is looking to engage an experienced User Experience Designer in a project that will unfold over the course of one to two weeks. This is a remote work opportunity open to qualified individuals living anywhere in the United States. We’re ready to kick-off the project immediately upon identifying an available UX Designer who offers the right mix of skills and experience. 

We're looking to talk with individuals who can be at least 75% focused on this effort during typical east coast business hours throughout the project duration. The remaining 25% of time committed can be outside of typical business hours. We expect the person in this role will work approximately 40 total over the course of one to two weeks. 

The client organization may request occasional support after the initial scope of work is completed during the one to two week engagement. So, there's an opportunity to extend the working relationship. Follow-on work would be offered with limited time commitments and flexible work hours. 

The UX Designer chosen for this role will work with a team of highly experienced strategy, product management, and project management professionals who are full-time employees at a media planning and buying firm that provides campaign strategy and execution support to its clients. The stakeholder team is currently working toward the launch of a new data insights product/platform. The UX Designer's primary task will be to work alongside a development team to build a high fidelity mock-up of this product within Figma. 
 
We’re interested in hearing from talented professionals at all career levels, but early career professionals must have at least three years of ongoing professional experience working as a titled UX Designer or similar. 

We'll be glad to share plenty of additional information about the employer with well qualified applicants.
