Oracle Design, User Experience Design Director
Location:Seattle, WA (preferred) or Bay Area, CA
Every day, enterprises around the world focus on how to help their employees work simpler and smarter. And while enterprises are as diverse as the people in them, they all share many core needs. They need to take care of their employees and their families by putting them in control of their benefits. To connect employees with their customers, so they in turn can thrive. To thoughtfully manage their valuable resources. To work efficiently with the vendors they depend on. And so much more.
Helping simpler and smarter work means letting enterprises focus on what makes each of them special. On what they’re best at, and in turn, let Oracle do the rest. The scope of our opportunity is enormous.
At Oracle, we’re committed to creating a state-of-the-art consumer-grade end user experience that will be the factor that distinguishes our software from the competition.
Yes. We’re absolutely serious.
And we can’t do it without your help.
We need thoughtful, talented, multi-faceted user experience designers who love empowering technology users with high quality interaction and visual design to bring their creative ideas and their hard work to join our team.
Here’s the kind of person we’re looking for:
Someone who thrives on working well with others,and making the people around you better. You love to collaborate with designers, user researchers, engineers, product managers, executives, and inspire them to do their best.
A full stack user experience designer.You look at interaction design, visual design and aesthetics, typography, motion, 3D, human factors, and more than tools in the UX designer’s toolkit.
People who get stuff done.
A fantastic storyteller.An understanding that our products tell our customers a story through the user experience. You won’t rest until that story is a compelling one.
Loves rules and knows when to break them.You think systemically because you know that creating a coherent experience requires it. But you understand when the system needs to expand to accommodate a user’s varied conceptual model. And you look to do something completely unique to create an arresting and product-defining moment in the product that makes users ooh and aah.
People who don’t already know everything and love to learn.You’re passionate about helping users solve their problems. You love finding out you’re wrong. You consume large amounts of quantitative and qualitative data to constantly refine your assumptions.
And finally, a desire to be part of crafting dramatic and impactful change at a company that is committed to becoming a light unto others when it comes to user experience design.
You might have learned your craft via formal training or via on-the-job training. For most candidates, it’s a combination of both. As long as you’ve got experience and passion doing this work at the highest level, we’d love to talk to you and see a portfolio of the work you’re most proud of.
What will you do as a user experience design director at Oracle?
You will guide a team of UX/UI designers who are responsible for Oracle.com and other marketing products and tools

You will partner closely with your fellow designers to innovate by designing coherent, seamless, and emotionally resonant, state-of-the-art user experiences for our users.
You will collaborate closely with your partners in engineering to take your ideas and turn them into reality.
You will engage with your colleagues in user research to get customer feedback on your designs, find out where you’ve improved their lives, and discover where you have more work to do.
