About Realtors Property Resource® (RPR®)

RPR is a wholly owned subsidiary of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). Our mission is to provide comprehensive property information and tools to more than 1 million REALTORS via our Web and mobile platforms.

If you’ve ever bought or sold a house, you’ve probably worked with a REALTOR®. These are our clients and at RPR, our goal is to keep them better informed and more competitive in serving the needs of their clients and prospects.

We are looking for a visual designer who can build on our creative vision and add value to our acclaimed user experience across all our mobile, desktop and back end products.

As part of the RPR team in our Irvine, California development center, you will have a direct impact on evolution of the look, feel and usability of professional REALTOR® products and be part of a team that is changing the real estate industry.

Responsibilities

  • Be an advocate for our users and their real world use of our products
  • Champion and use principles of usability and user-centered design and know when you should push those boundaries
  • Lead the design discussion within a fast paced team of product managers, developers, QA and business owners and work closely with all stakeholders through the development and implementation cycles
  • Constantly evaluate our products (mobile, tablet and web) and identify areas where we can design better solutions
  • Rapidly iterate your designs to incorporate ongoing user and team feedback
  • Show a high attention to detail from wireframes through to pixel perfect comps and annotations
  • Communicate and present your design solutions to the product and business team
  • Be comfortable working with large amounts of data and the need to visualize it in ways that help bring understanding and create meaning
  • Be able to meet deadlines while juggle several projects on different schedules
  • Ensure UI and brand consistency across all platforms and maintain user specifications and design patterns
  • Collaborate with Marketing (and supply artwork as needed) to promote our products across print, Web and video

Required Experience

  • Ability to work effectively remotely as well as in person in our Irvine (Orange County) office at least 2 days per week
  • Ability to work in a fast paced team environment (we use the AGILE method of software development)
  • 3-5 years of real-world experience in Interface and Interaction Design
  • Fluency in best practices for Interaction Design
  • Ability to quickly turn around tight wire-frames and mockups in an iterative environment
  • Well versed and curious about current design and UI trends
  • An online portfolio that reflects your highest quality work and user centric designs

How we work

  • Typography, layout and color expertise are a given
  • We value clean, logical and elegant design over Photoshop tricks
  • A consistent UI and design framework across all of our products is important
  • We value individual drive and the ability to work within a team equally
  • We work in flexible teams using AGILE methodology to generate quality working software early and often
  • We use the Adobe Suite for fast prototyping (Fireworks), but are always open to better solutions
  • Designers have a key and equal voice at the decision making table (design is not a service department)

What we offer

  • Competitive base salary
  • Full medical, dental, & vision benefits
  • 401(k) program with employer match
  • Flexible Spending Accounts
  • Paid vacation and holidays
