Senior UI/UX Designer, Irvine

Join the design team to help create and contribute to products used by millions of gamers worldwide. Our designers work on the desktop and mobile apps, the Shop website, our account management tools, and many more products that our players rely on to play games, connect with each other, and take part in Blizzard’s epic entertainment experiences.

We need great teammates who can thrive in a highly collaborative, rapidly changing, and multi-disciplinary environment. You’re someone who can manage both the work as well as cultivate the relationships needed to be an effective designer. You have top-tier communication skills, have an entrepreneurial spirit and can think globally.

As a senior designer, you’ll also have a proven track record of helping to create and ship multiple products in the technology or gaming spaces.

  • Understand what our users are doing and why – Analytics, competitive analysis, interviews, and research support.
  • Define problems and opportunities – Combine analysis of our user with business needs to form stories and plan solutions.
  • Create and show solutions – Strategy, wireframes, flowcharts, prototypes, feature matrices, and designs using tools such as Sketch, Axure, and Principle. You’ll be presenting and communicating your work across the organization and to other teams at Blizzard.
  • Collaborate effectively – Team up with your fellow designers as well as our partners in other disciplines such as product managers and engineers.
  • Iterate based on “validated learning” – More flowcharts, wires, and designs – often in collaboration with the research team.
  • Deliver and follow through – Launch ideas (e.g. final wires, detailed flows, error states, etc.) and assist in post-launch analysis including A / B testing.
  • Drive strategy – Strategize and drive the design of products and features with the right combination of creativity, moxie and energy to get things done.
  • Set standards and make decisions – You help establish best practices for a design team, such as design systems and processes. You also advocate for and explain product vision and design decisions both inside and outside the design team.
