About the job
Design and user experience (UX) are at the forefront of everything we do. The job of an Interaction Designer is to envision how people experience our products and bring that vision to life in a way that feels inspired, refined and even magical. In an Interaction Designer role, you’ll take on complex tasks and transform them into intuitive, accessible and easy-to-use designs for billions of people around the world—from the first-time user to the sophisticated expert. Achieving this goal requires collaboration with teams of Designers, Researchers, Engineers and Product Managers throughout the design process—from creating user flows and wireframes to building user interface mockups and prototypes. At each stage, you will anticipate what our users need, advocate for them and ensure that the final product surprises and delights them.Waze R&D is all about teamwork. The most innovative developers and designers work together in small groups to build products that are used by millions. Engineers work side by side with Product and UX in a fast, creative atmosphere with minimal documentation. Our team members are self-sufficient and problem solvers. We are looking for people who are passionate about Waze, its community and who are always one step ahead in development platforms, new functionality and APIs.
Execute all visual design stages from conceptualization to final hand-off to the Engineering team.

Develop knowledge of the highly-engaged community. Communicate with users, get their feedback, and listen to their needs while still considering UX.
