Icreon’s Mission

Icreon is a Digital Innovation Enterprise. We strongly believe that a company’s success and longevity are directly proportional to its ability to innovate. To conjure new ideas, engineer new systems, and create new products – innovation is the only true competitive advantage in business.

The Company

Icreon works with leaders of companies to affect positive transformation through digital innovation. A rare cross-section of ‘thinkers’ and ‘doers’, our team combines the highest level of strategic leadership with advanced execution.

Every business is now a digital business. The challenge is applying technology to its fullest potential in any organization. After all, ideas have value only when they can be applied. This is what it means to put innovation to work. We are Icreon. We put innovation to work.

Platform Development Overview

Icreon works with a number of growing organizations on the digital platforms that power their business’s mission and growth. Today, there is a fundamental shift in engineering these new platforms for customers and new focus on how to best create products based not just on business needs, but those of the people they wish to engage. Our goal is to transform the traditional model in software development to encompass this shift.

Position Overview

We're looking to bring on a bright user experience / user interface designer to help grow our creative team. The design team at Icreon has a strong user experience focus, but necessitates a decided cross-functional awareness. As the creative team, we own a large and critical part of the project process, and work continuously with clients, strategists, and developers to produce quality, custom-built digital experiences.

Our projects vary widely – web, apps, and AR to name a few – and have their own unique challenges – the variety keeps you on your toes! The ability to shift between projects and evaluate your time constraints will be crucial. The requisite attention to detail is just as important as interpersonal skills and the ability to speak clearly and effectively about design decisions and strategy. We have an emphasis on collaboration and iterative design, and want to find a good match eager to work together to build complete, concept-driven experiences.

Requirements

  • Design thinking and problem-solving mentality
  • Ability to translate concept to experience and visual design
  • Competencies in interaction design, systems thinking, and product design
  • Understanding of how UX/UI translates to frontend code – working knowledge of frontend frameworks such as AngularJS and HTML5 concepts/principles
  • Understanding of responsive design and its considerations
  • Ability to articulate your design decisions and communicate effectively with people of different levels of design knowledge
  • At home with the usual design software – Sketch, the Adobe suite – and comfortable with prototyping tools – sometimes familiar, sometimes new

Responsibilities:

  • Collaborate with creative team to design original, cohesive, and scalable visual languages and interaction models
  • Craft digital experiences from concept to completion
  • Work with Design Lead to hone a comprehensive and systematized design process across projects and initiatives
  • Working with team members across disciplines – including BAs, PMs, and developers –  to reach the best possible solutions and digital products
  • Communicating with clients and other stakeholders, and coordinating and consolidating feedback
  • Keeping up with new trends in design and tech

Why Icreon?

As a digital innovation agency, we steer away from the stereotypes of typical consultants. We have a passion for new ideas and innovative experiences. We aim to make the digital world a more interesting place, with new and engaging ways for businesses to connect with people, and for people to navigate their digital lives with ease and delight. If you share that same passion, we’d like to talk to you.

Why Else?

  • A competitive Salary with Performance Based Capital Incentives
  • A highly configurable heatlh, dental & vision plan
  • Access to discounted professional development seminars and a discrete training budget
  • A tiered, matching 401k plan with highly flexible investment options
  • FSA, HSA programs and discounts on local city events and products
  • Choice of personal computing device and peripherals
  • A sun-drenched penthouse office with private access to a Manhattan rooftop on 5th Avenue
  • A stocked pantry for free snacks and daily breakfast options
  • Monthly Team lunches and regular happy hours and learning sessions
