Senior Service Designer Researcher


Pinnacle Group, Inc.

Job Summary
The service design team is seeking a senior or lead level service designer / service design researcher to work closely with the service design, product and business teams to unite our employee-facing and customer-facing products and services into continuous, thoughtful, and focused customer journeys. This person is a strategic partner to the Service Design Manager and will work collaboratively to research and build service blueprints and other service design artifacts in support of a large electric utility.

About You
You are a seasoned user experience designer, user experience researcher or service designer who excels at the process, strategy, user-flow, and blueprint side of experience and service design.
You are inquisitive to the core and strive to unpack a problem from all sides before, during and sometimes after solutioning. You are comfortable pushing past initial work requests to dig deeper and learn more to maximize design efforts.
You have experience designing for both front stage and backstage experiences and understand how these worlds meet in the middle to deliver unified, delightful end-user experiences.
You can articulate your design choices with creativity and clarity and welcome constructive feedback, and you are comfortable if not everyone agrees with your design decisions and are excited to work together to align on optimal solutions.
You value and appreciate diversity and inclusion and look for ways to incorporate these values in our work, processes, and interactions.
Your early iterations are rough and rapid, but you can also refine and deliver polished artifacts once all corners of a problem are understood.
You thrive in a creative and collaborative environment and bring a yes, and… attitude to workshops, brainstorming sessions and group design activities.
