Job Overview

Product Development at AT&T 

The Product Development team at AT&T is a community of product leaders, developers, designers, and architects building new software-defined products, services, and platforms. We work at the speed of technology inside AT&T by combining the best elements of startups (scrappiness, speed, and customer focus) with the assets and benefits of the larger corporation. 

Our goal is to deliver product-led growth at massive scale – new product offerings that will stand alongside or on top of the converged AT&T 5G and fiber network. 

Our approach is simple. We work backwards from customers, both consumers and enterprises, to define and build products and experiences that delight, connect, and deliver lasting value. We then bring forward innovation from the same company that invented the transistor, the solar cell, the communications satellite, and machine learning. 

Whether your background is in product management, engineering, design, or something else, you’ll enter an internal community of leaders who share a similar entrepreneurial mindset. 

As a Principal UX Engineer, you will play a crucial role in delivering innovative products in a variety of domains. We will collaborate with each other within the User Experience team and with Product and Engineering leaders to create value and craft great experiences for our users. You have a great taste for design and interactions, eye for detail, and you get excited at the sound of “microinteractions”.  You’ve done this many times before, and you can’t wait to do it again, this time on one of the world’s greatest communications platforms, with significant freedoms and the ability to make an impact at massive scale. This job may be performed from any continental US state.

· Great understanding of design and interaction principles, as well as building an accessible interface.
· Help deliver high-quality interfaces from prototype to production that are flexible to evolve as we learn from our users across a variety of platforms (e.g. web, iOS, Android) within a fast-paced environment.
· Partner with other developers to build and maintain reusable libraries, framework, and platform.
· Be a partner-in-crime with Designers to deliver best-in-class experiences to our users.
· Work with relevant team members to help define and implement usability metrics.
· Self-motivated and comfortable working with ambiguity to help the team drive towards product goals.

Key Qualifications
· Experience with Design or Front-end engineering.
· Experienced in CSS, HTML, JavaScript, frontend frameworks (e.g. React, Vue, Angular, or other similar frameworks), and familiarity with Figma.
· Great understanding of and experience in building compliant accessible interfaces for a variety of medium.

Our Principal Software Engineers earn between $127,100 - $254,300 annually. Not to mention all the other amazing rewards that working at AT&T offers. From health insurance to tuition reimbursement and paid time off to discounts on products and services just to name a few. There is a lot to be excited about around here.  Individual starting salary within this range may depend on geography, experience, expertise, and education/training.

A career with us, a global leader in communications and technology, comes with big rewards. As part of our team, you’ll lead transformation surrounded by trailblazing industry leaders like you. You’ll be empowered to go above and beyond – making a difference through company-sponsored initiatives or connecting and networking through one of our many employee groups. And regardless of where you’re at in your career trajectory, you’ll be rewarded by the impact that comes with making a difference in the lives of millions. With AT&T, you’ll be a part of something greater, do incredible things and be rewarded with a chance to change the world.  Once you are part of our team, you’ll have an amazing compensation and benefits package, including bonuses, medical/dental/vision coverage, matching 401(k), tuition reimbursement, paid time off, discounted wireless and internet plans, and more!

Key Qualifications
· Experience with Design or Front-end engineering.
· Experienced in CSS, HTML, JavaScript, frontend frameworks (e.g. React, Vue, Angular, or other similar frameworks), and familiarity with Figma.
· Great understanding of and experience in building compliant accessible interfaces for a variety of medium.
