We analyze content domains, build scenarios and use cases, define verbal query patterns, determine interaction flows, build design specifications, and write Siri responses. We collaborate with multi-disciplinary, cross-functional teams, with diverse backgrounds in speech, natural language, human interface, server and client engineering, localization, editorial, marketing, project management, data science, and other specialties.

Desired Experience

  • Qualitative and usability research planning, execution, and outputs analysis
  • Interactive prototyping and storyboarding
  • Technical writing, documentation design, and/or communication design
