Responsibilities

 

This candidate will spend a majority of their time documenting and writing the information architecture for the IPTV platform, while also ensuring that all flows and prototype development follow said architecture. Role is largely responsible for nomenclature and messaging in the product. Role will interface cross-functionally to represent UX in requirements sessions and UX reviews with product and technology teams. Semi-frequent travel may also be necessary.

The candidate must be able to lead and provide a comprehensive IA, to varying degrees of specificity as necessary. They must also be able to provide a fresh take on existing architectures in order to advance simplicity. And they must also understand how the IA will remain compatible across different platforms, such as TV and mobile.

 

Examples

1

The business has determined that they want to include store (TVOD, FVOD, SVOD) functionality not only on the TV, but also on the mobile front. Because of business limitations, certain transactional functions are not available on all mobile platforms, this candidate must then be able to develop a compelling IA that maintains as much parity between the two environments.

2

Taking the above example, the business also needs to see in a simplified, but visually appealing manner what are the major differences between the TV and mobile platforms as it affects the Store. The candidate must be able to lay out the differences in an IA overview that may not show all of the complexity but focuses their attention on the core issues.

 

Qualifications

 

The candidate will work with the other information architect and must be able to collaborate, but also lead. They will also be required to establish a documentation style, and maintain all documentation and other visual aides regarding the IA. Adobe Illustrator experience is a requirement for dealing with comps and flows. Adobe PDF is required as well. Experience with Axure is recommended as well, but not necessary. Good communication skills is a must.
