Overview and Responsibilities

When kids are experiencing content and exploring the world at their pace, on their level and venturing out to discover more, we want them to choose Nickelodeon.

 

When parents are choosing educational, safe and fun content for their kids, we want them to choose Nickelodeon.

 

The User Experience Design team at Nickelodeon is responsible for creating fun, innovative, and usable digital content experiences for kids. We build experiences for Nick and Nick Jr on iOS, Android, Responsive Web, Connected Devices, Game Consoles, TVs, Oculus Rift, Hololens, and more.

 

 This requires a natural born problem-solver, opinion-haver and inner child-engager who is familiar with iterative design techniques like prototyping and user testing.

 

The most vital characteristics of our team are: We fart with kids, we heart with parents and we smart with business.
