About the team and role: 
The AIUX team humanizes the advanced R&D programs. We do this primarily by creating ambitious new products that launch over the next 4 years. We work alongside Research Scientists, answering difficult user questions, prototyping, and sharing new UX practices with everyone.
AIUX requires creativity and systems-level thinking from designers. You will work with UX leads and partner teams to understand project scope and objectives, then assist in creating interaction flows and directional designs. Your day may involve designing interfaces, developing storyboards, brainstorming in a large group, or prototyping interactions. You use tools like Figma and can communicate your design intention clearly in various media. Sometimes you will partner and collaborate with team leads and other designers to resolve design issues or contribute to developing product narrative. You are comfortable exploring a spectrum of potential solutions to new, emerging technical capabilities that are at the edge of what’s achievable with computing and interaction.
You have a strong interest in AI/ML technology and have worked alongside engineers and product managers. More than anything, an attitude of exploration and openness will lead to success as an Interaction Designer on the AIUX team.
