Job Description

As an Interaction Designer at Valve, you will join a world-class group of software engineers, artists, writers, animators and designers who are continually creating and shipping world-class social entertainment experiences. We’re hoping to add your expertise in visual communication, user experience design, usability, writing, and marketing to our team.

Valve is an entertainment and technology company driven to design and deliver rewarding experiences to customers. We hire generalists who also exhibit deep expertise. Designers at Valve contribute in a wide variety of ways: We define and articulate goals, we design and ship user interfaces, architectures, layouts and graphics, we create and implement user studies, we write press releases and blog posts, we manage projects, and much more. We also recruit designers. People like you.

At Valve, our design process really gets going once products are in customers’ hands. Our best work is the result of an ongoing dialog with customers. This is fundamental to the way we create great products. Through years of shipping software as a service through Steam, our digital distribution platform, we’ve learned to include our customers in the entirety of the design process. With an engaged community of millions of users, what will you ship? What will you try, and what will you learn through doing so?

Do you prefer to define the work that you pursue, rather than simply following a vision that’s been set for you? If you’re seeking an opportunity to steer product definition, functional exploration and design decision-making, consider joining Valve. We can’t wait to see where you’ll take us.
Requirements:

BS/BA/BFA degree (or equivalent) in graphic, industrial, or interaction design (or equivalent)
6+ years of professional experience shipping world-class software and services
A thorough understanding of graphic and user interaction design principles
Highly effective multidisciplinary collaboration skills
Personal commitment to quality, attention to detail
Confidence with design communication tools
Effective, articulate design communication and decision-making skills
An online portfolio of work which conveys your capabilities

Please include with your application an online portfolio of work which conveys your capabilities.
