As a Lead Interaction Designer, you will be an integral part of an agile and fast-growing team shaping this transformation. We are looking for designers who think big and are inspired by tackling longstanding challenges in enterprise software. You will work with the internal BMC UX team, visual designers, engineers, product managers, and even customers to iteratively design views and interactions for our new products.

  • Employ creative strategies to solve user interaction challenges.
  • Innovate and push creative boundaries on a daily basis.
  • Translate user research findings into elegant, effective interfaces.
  • Interpret and extend design principles and user pattern libraries to new interfaces.
  • Collaborate with engineers, development leads, product architects, product managers, marketing specialists, and user interface writers to explain designs and answer questions.
  • Make iterative changes to interface designs in response to customer feedback.


  • Minimum 3-5 years of experience designing interactive user experiences for products that have launched.


  • Expert knowledge of interaction design trends on the Web.
  • Self-starter with comfort bringing clarity to sometimes ambiguous design requirements.
  • Ability to deliver timely and constructive feedback on visual designs.
  • Ability to prototype interactive designs using Axure, Balsamiq, Illustrator, Keynote/PowerPoint, or even HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
  • Expert skills using the Adobe Creative Suite: Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign.

Bonus Skills:

  • Experience designing native apps and interactions on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.
  • A voracious appetite for design blogs, books, podcasts, and conferences.
  • Understanding of front-end development practices (HTML 5, CSS, JavaScript) and how quality experiences actually get built.
  • Exposure to IT service delivery processes at call centers and/or within IT support teams.
