About the Job

  • Experience Design: Craft end-to-end user experiences for our home construction platform, focusing on ease of use, efficiency, and impactful interactions.
  • User-Centered Research: Engage with homebuilders, buyers, and industry partners to refine and simplify the design, sale, and build processes, anchoring your strategies in real user needs and behaviors.
  • Prototyping and Visualization: Develop flows, prototypes, and visuals (low to mid-fidelity) to bring your ideas to life, facilitating clear understanding and stakeholder buy-in.
  • Platform Strategy Influence: Play a critical role in shaping the strategic direction of the Higharc platform, ensuring design choices align with our vision and user needs.
  • Design Execution: Implement design strategies that effectively integrate words, visual representations, physical space, time, and behavior to create seamless user interactions.

About You
