Fine Print

At OUTFRONT we’re innovating everything about out-of-home advertising; from the value, it provides to audiences and advertisers, the tools and methodologies used to plan and buy our media, to how an out-of-home company takes itself to market.

OUTFRONT’s digital team is bringing the power of digital to environments outside of our homes. Our cloud-based digital ecosystem integrates hardware, software, content, and data to create highly relevant and engaging experiences at a scale never seen in out-of-home, so brands can truly connect with their audiences.

We’re bringing the digital revolution to out-of-home, and we would like to invite your innovative mind, eyes, and hands to join us in bringing these dynamic experiences to the real world.

OUTFRONT X-Labs is the cross-disciplinary, creative innovation group focused on the intersection of human-centered design and outdoor media. The group, which is situated within the larger OUTFRONT marketing department, comprises four key teams, each working in lockstep to explore the future of outdoor media from concept to realization.

● Digital Creative - Future-forward concept development and realization

● Experience Design - Omni-channel design focused on the consumer experience and culturally relevant solutions

● Creative Technology - Enhancing outdoor experiences through emerging technology integrations

● Dynamic Content - Interactive, data-driven, and full-motion content production

Role Overview:
As the Senior Experience Design Lead in the OUTFRONT X-Labs group, you will be a key representative of the Experience Design team.

Throughout OUTFRONT, the X-Labs group is known for its strong relationships, where our proactive, solution-oriented methodology has led to great results for our stakeholders. If you’re one part logic and one part creative you’ll find your footing well within this role; as it requires organizational thinking and architecting matched with future-forward creative solutions that meet business objectives.

Consumer Experience Responsibilities:
Part of the vision for Connecx by OUTFRONT is to bring the art and science of consumer experience to outdoor media. Much like a digital product, where the user flow or consumer journey is central to the end-user experience, we’re taking the same approach to our digital media and the environments they coexist within. It’s our belief that outdoor digital media must integrate into communities and provide more purpose, meaning, and value to audiences and advertisers alike. To make this belief a reality, we’ve developed a consultative service for our transit and municipality partners to bring real-time information and assistance to communities. You will play a key role in bringing this vision to life and collaborating with our partners as the primary representative for the service. This will include:
