Senior UX Designer

Department: Consulting

Employment Type: Full Time

Location: Mexico

Reporting To: Director of Consulting


Everything we do at TDL is guided by SPICE: Socially conscious, Pragmatic, Inventive, Catalytic, and Evidence-based. You can read more about us and our core values here.

Why this role is important for TDL

We started The Decision Lab because we saw a fundamental gap between behavioral science theory and application. The Senior UX Designer role is at the front line of bridging this gap. This means that we look for bright, capable and curious candidates with a strong grasp of UX principles, excellent design skills and a familiarity with behavioral science concepts (from the point of view of behavioral economics, psychology, neuroscience, sociology, etc.) who have a thirst for translating evidence (be it desk research, experiments or analytics) into digital product features.

As a UX Designer, you will work on exciting and impactful projects from day one. You will collaborate with our team of directors, designers and researchers to create and improve products for some of the largest organizations in the world. In many cases, this means collaborating with clients to understand and diagnose product issues, translate them into behavioral terms, identify potential solutions, wireframe them, then create a design language for bringing them to life.

Why this role is great for you
The Decision Lab is a place where you can learn to use evidence-based approaches to solve diverse & complex challenges. You will work alongside intelligent & free-thinking colleagues who lead with optimism, pragmatism and empathy. Rather than reusing the same behavior change frameworks, TDL develops custom solutions – this means that in addition to being evidence-based, your role will be fundamentally creative and you will have the opportunity to evolve and express your thinking in the work you do. Our team helps and empowers each other and we have a rich set of tools and frameworks that you will be exposed to, but you will ultimately be responsible for your work – past hires tell us they are surprised to what extent they are able to take intellectual ownership of the projects they work on.

What we are looking for

We are looking for a candidate with at least 5+ years of professional experience in UX, with a good eye for UI as well. The ideal candidate will also be passionate about the behavioral sciences and genuinely curious about how they can be applied to create impact through digital products. Key attributes of the ideal candidate include:

  • Experience: you have 5+ years experience sitting at the intersection between UX, strategy and design and have demonstrated repeated successes in connecting these worlds to create and improve digital products.

  • Communicating UX rationale: Since part of the role will be client-facing, you should also have experience interfacing directly with senior clients and be able to effectively articulate the UX rationale behind certain decisions.

  • Master of Tools: You master tools such as Figma, Sketch, Illustrator

  • UX Design Expertise: you have a strong portfolio of digital products designs (mockups, wireframes, journeys) and experience creating or extending user-centric design systems 

  • Strategic Design Approach: you have a deep understanding of user personas, customer journey mapping and applying behavioral science to make both of these more evidence-based.

  • Research Focus: you are able to move your ego aside and understand that the most successful solutions are not based on ideology but on a combination of empathy, pragmatism and evidence-based iteration.You have experience verifying design concepts with users in quantitative and qualitative research designs such as usability tests, focus groups and surveys. 

  • Culture: you are comfortable working in an ambiguous and dynamic environment and comfortable with non-hierarchical organizations.

  • You have specific experience working in the health space, or designing with specific populations or groups in mind (e.g. youth, older populations, designing for equity).
  • You have a graphic or visual design background. We’ve found visualizing complex ideas, stories, and processes in a compelling way important for advocating for change with our clients
  • You have experience verifying design solutions with a co-design driven research approach. 
  • Create original graphic designs (e.g. images, sketches and tables)
