Join the team at Threespot and help our clients define and build products to bring about positive change in the world.

Threespot UX Strategists gather, define, and clarify business and audience objectives. They are highly-skilled at reviewing an organization’s website architecture and content to identify challenges and opportunities for improvement. 

Informed by research, they synthesize, translate, and document their understanding into effective and intuitive digital experiences that meet audience and business goals. They are thoughtful individuals who make decisions with a finite amount of information and then can visualize and explain the design implications of those decisions. 

If you want to work for clients who are making a difference and not just a profit, we should talk.

  • Prepare and conduct workshops for groups of varying sizes and composition both in-person and remotely — engaging participants from internal client stakeholders to potential audience groups 
  • Clearly communicate findings, ideas, and rationales verbally, visually, and in written form to internal teams and clients 
  • Translate user and stakeholder research into strategic and tactical recommendations 
  • Creation of Functional Specification documentation for content management systems and the ability to guide and inform the user experience of those systems as they relate to clients’ specific publishing workflow needs

  • At least 3 years of experience in related role at an agency
  • Experience and/or familiarity working with and designing content management systems using Wordpress, Drupal or other similar systems
  • Adept at evaluating, organizing, labeling, and structuring content to meet audience and business needs

  • Experience designing and documenting structured content types and taxonomies for content management systems
  • Experience wireframing, prototyping, and/or workflow tools (such as Adobe Creative Suite and Figma)

  • Demonstrated experience producing written and visual information architecture work products (via a portfolio or during the interview process)
  • Solid written and verbal communication skills
