Brilliant Experience

Junior UX Designer

Brilliant Experience’s team works directly with clients to make research-driven and human-centered product and service design recommendations.

The Jr. UX Designer is inquisitive, open to learning, and wants a strong foundation in a range of user research methods.

They do this by:
Articulating the best UX approach for a problem through wireframes and prototypes

Helping to shape and support how we tell customer stories, whether that’s through video, infographics, personas, journey maps and more

Having a baseline understanding of the advantages (and limitations) of user experience and/or consumer research methodologies

Having the instincts for (and some experience in) recommending the right approach for a given project


The Jr. UX Designer at Brilliant Experience will:
Work with the Brilliant Experience team, and with clients, to create user-centric recommendations

Create wireframes and prototypes – predominately in Axure – to help illustrate solutions

Help execute research that solves a range of problems

Support result summaries, personas, journey and opportunity maps, and (when appropriate) suggest updated information architectures, wireframes, etc.

Be a key contributor to a team (of 1 to many)

Help support responses to new business opportunities (note: this is not sales, but we’re a small company)


1-3 years of hands-on client experience outside of an academic program

High proficiency in Axure. Sketch and/or Figma are good-to-know, but this is an Axure RP-focused position for now

A portfolio of work samples (see “How to Apply” below for more information). One of these samples should include a prototype

A working knowledge of different research methods

A related, secondary skill to show cross-discipline thinking. For instance: interface design, information architecture, graphic design, data science, content strategy, etc.

Comfortable participating in client workshops

Good at reading people and building professional relationships

A strong verbal and written communicator

Please note: for the foreseeable future, this is a work-from-home position. Candidates must be highly comfortable working remotely.

Eventually, this role will require some weekly on-site time with clients in the D.C area. Unfortunately, we can’t provide relocation costs.
