**You must be authorized to work in the US full-time at our offices in Blacksburg, VA

Modea is a young but growing digital agency. In fact, we were just featured in the INC Magazine list of the fastest growing privately owned companies in the United States. And that growth hasn't happened by accident. It's the result of attracting and employing some of the industry's most talented writers, developers, designers and thinkers. And we're looking for a User Experience Director to join our team.

Designing for the web is about creating the perfect balance between form and function. Beautiful visual design that isn't grounded in reason or purpose won't be as effective, and that's where UX comes in. As a User Experience Director, you'll be an advocate for the user and set the UX vision and goals for projects. By working alongside an Art Director and lead Creative Developer, you'll carry that vision from conceptualization to implementation. You’ll be involved every step of the way to ensure your visions are transformed into websites and applications that people love to use.

We're looking for a problem solver who has a passion for crafting innovative and elegant experiences with no detail overlooked. We want technology geeks who love to learn and are curious about how things work and why. Beyond just being a learner, we're looking for teachers who want to shape the way that an entire team of people think about the web.
