Are you excited about reinventing productivity by delivering the leading content collaboration platform in a cloud-first, mobile and intelligence-powered world? Are you passionate about bringing people into a future where every file they’ve created is available anytime, anyplace, and on any device? Are you obsessed with creating products that are simple, useful, delightful, and beautiful? So are we.

Working on OneDrive, you’ll be a part of a team fundamentally changing the way people interact with the most important content in their lives. In terms of impact, OneDrive is a thriving business with competitors like Google Drive, iCloud, and Box. Our products and services touch almost every piece of the company, whether it is through Windows, Office, Xbox, or our own suite of mobile apps. You will have these tools at your disposal to extend the OneDrive experience across the apps and devices people use every day. 

We are passionate about moving fast, delivering great apps on every device, learning as we go, building on the work of others, using the best tools for the job, and doing what's right without waiting to be told.

You must have a clear understanding of each facet of the design process – information architecture + interaction design, research + usability, rapid prototyping, visual design, motion, and brand integration. You will have a demonstrated ability to effectively partner with program management and engineers to shepherd end-to-end experiences from concept to ship. You are also a great creator, collaborator and communicator. 

The position requires the need to be organized, detail-oriented, and results-driven. Passion for our customers and for consumers who want great user experiences is highly desired.

Additional or Preferred Qualifications:

  • 5 years or more of work-related experience in interaction / user experience design
  • Stellar project management, communication, and presentation skills 
  • A portfolio demonstrating breadth and creativity in related fields 
  • Significant interest in and aptitude for learning new technologies and design skills 
  • Experience working in cloud file storage systems, including relevant personal and enterprise customer scenarios 
  • In addition to interaction design strengths, hands-on experience in a secondary field such as motion design, visual design, front end software engineering, or industrial design is highly desired 
  • Proficiency in digital design tools, including Figma & Adobe Creative Suite, and techniques including auto-layout, components and variants. 
  • Ability to prioritize across multiple projects with various stakeholders and timeline constraints.
  • Demonstrable ability to work confidently with Program Management, Engineering, Marketing and Usability Researchers. 
  • Possess ability to think conceptually about design and information architecture
  • Understand the array of technical constraints, user goals and business requirements that shape current and future products
  • Education requirements include either a BA/BS in graphic design, visual communication design, interaction design, or significant industry experience.
