UX/UI Designer Engineering | Merrifield, VA Looking for your next great adventure? mHelpDesk, an operating business of HomeAdvisor/IAC is a rapidly growing startup based in Fairfax, VA, and we are looking for you! mHelpDesk is changing the way home service providers manage their business. We build products that solve real problems and focus on the experience of the end user.  Like any great company, our success is built around a great team. We’re seeking an experienced, energetic User Experience (UX) Designer – someone who understands that a great user experience leads to better brand recognition and repeat customers, and whose passion for creating user-centered products comes through in everything they design. This is your chance to impact how our service providers interact with our software tools every single day. Life at mHelpDesk mHelpDesk is not your average startup. We are a fast growing company that was recently acquired by a major internet brand. This is a great opportunity for you to get involved at an early stage.  Think of us as a startup without all the risks of working for a startup. That means no late (or missed) paychecks, no need to find your own expensive health insurance plan, no working for a tiny fraction of your market value. It also means no corporate atmosphere with strict dress code or stuffy bureaucracy to drown out your ideas. We value every team member and if we hire you, it’s because we think you can do big things with us.

  • Understand best practices of wireframing and prototyping AND will possess 2 years of experience in a professional setting.

  • Conduct user research, including concept testing and usability testing, conduct stakeholder interviews, and lead competitive analysis discussions.
  • Stay abreast of advances in user interface (both technical and experiential) and look for ways to appropriately integrate these advances into mHelpDesk products.
  • Express user experience best practices across the company, and mentor colleagues and staff on best-in-class usability concepts.
  • Prioritize and manage work to meet critical project timelines in a fast-paced, constantly changing environment.
