threespot wins the award for best UX job description I have read in some time.

Because our process at Threespot is fundamentally collaborative, Senior UX Leads must be able to work independently, as well as part of a team. They work closely with other members of the UX group, Project Managers, Art Directors, and Technical Leads in creating and maintaining the project vision. Senior UX Leads work directly for the Director of User Experience, with ultimate supervision by the Chief Creative Officer.
