UX Lead (User Experience Lead/Human-Computer Interaction Lead):
The UX and Usability Lead will own the overall user experience for the Company’s e-commerce sites. Main goal is to improve the usability, usefulness, and visual design of company sites in collaboration with business users, business analysts and the technical team. He/she will design screen layouts and ensure consistency in the information architecture and user experience across all sites. He/she must be an advocate for usability at all times in order to provide guidance on incorporating user research methodologies into the product design and development lifecycles.
A successful UX Lead will:
- Never tire of discovering what users really need and using creative user research methods (customer journeys and etc.) to gather those critical insights.
- Have an innate sense of – and strong opinion about – good usability when it comes to web applications, and an ability to clearly articulate both.
- Conceptualize and articulate complex ideas, then document them (using appropriately chosen, informed deliverables such as sketches, wireframes, prototypes, site maps, user flow, personas, and scenarios) to drive decisions, facilitate understanding, and reach consensus.
- Expertly present recommendations – to team members, alike – on elements such as functionality, content, and navigation that are considerate of project scope and phasing.
- Have a proven record of success in managing web projects from straightforward marketing sites to complex web-based products that require loads of custom development.
- Have a perfectionist nature, but won’t lose momentum because of it.
- Play well with others – and take pride in his/her communicative and collaborative abilities.
- Understand established interactive technologies and possess an undying thirst to learn about new ones.
- Be an expert on the latest trends, methods, and tools in the web industry.
- At least 2 years of professional experience.
- A BA, BS, BFA, or equivalent work experience in areas such as human-computer interaction, information science, graphic or industrial design, computer science, fine arts, social sciences such as psychology, or another related field.
The salary is $100K - $150K pa.

I think that you should add "being patient" to this list. Some of the customers might be too demanding and the one you are looking for should be patient enough to work with the client.
