Job Summary/Purpose 

Entergy's innovation lab is searching for highly skilled, passionate, thoughtful designer to join our Product Design team in building a premier customer-focused utility. The Product Designer role is a fantastic opportunity for you to weave iconography, typography, color, space and texture together in helping our customers use our products. Our team values, not only innovators, and system thinkers, but also team members that can communicate and influence our organization’s design maturity, while delivering better products and services to our customers.

 

Youll rely on human-centric design principles to produce high-quality end-to-end visuals across many platforms and customer bases. Youll collaborate with fellow Product Designers, Strategic Designers, Product Managers, Growth Analysts, and Engineers to help define and refine our KSL design language, while creating innovative products and services to our customers’ delight.

 

We are building a team that seeks to understand our customers by learning everything we can about their behaviors, attitudes and emotions to help define the products and experiences we create. The Product Design team plays a significant role in using these insights to inspire and inform our design decisions.

 

User experience is at the foundation of how we create inclusive, innovative, and thoughtful products that our customers will love. We work with a lab of collaborative innovators and creative problem solvers. Our KeyString Labs teams are solving complex challenges and developing solutions that highlight our parent company’s, Entergy, unique opportunity to provide a new world of products and services by working with new disruptive technologies and resources. Our work touches millions across our five service regions (Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Orleans and Texas), including small business, residential, and a growing number of industrial and corporate businesses.

 

As an experienced member of our design team, you'll also help to mentor and lead other members of our growing team. Role-wise, you’ll focus on UX research, interaction, and visual design. You understand the role of UX, visual design, prototyping, branding, communication, and team facilitation to create and execute a design strategy. You can clearly articulate the differences between information architecture, interaction design, usability, and user research. A clear design process is something you’ve crafted and relied on as a playbook to address the unique challenges and opportunities of every type of project.
