NTT DATA UK are seeking an Interaction Designer to join our growing team!

Job Description

As an Interaction Designer you will focus on our clients’ products and services, developing a strong empathy with those who use them. Armed with this empathy, you will craft design concepts that meaningfully improve the user experience of those products. You will take those concepts from paper or whiteboard sketches through to detailed, precise wireframes and prototypes that allow developers to understand the detail behind your proposals. As part of a growing design team, you will have the chance to contribute fresh ideas and ways of working.

You have a talent and passion not only for interaction design but for information architecture, prototyping, and user research. You are deeply curious about people — their motives, their environments, the things they are trying to achieve — and recognise that they are at the core of any design project you carry out. Bad user experiences frustrate you and you would take every opportunity you get to eliminate them. Your career as a professional interaction designer is off to a promising start but you are looking for a new set of challenges to help your skills develop.

The Role

Reviewing requirements gathered from client stakeholders and subject matter experts, and exploring how these can be translated into a compelling design concept
Participating in collaborative sketching workshops alongside colleagues and client stakeholders
Illustrating user journeys, personas and goals, information models and more
Producing wireframes and interactive prototypes to depict proposed functionality to stakeholders, potential users, developers and other audiences
Working closely with Visual Designers to collaboratively sketch out early thinking and to iterate on detailed interaction design work

The Person

You will have a degree or post-graduate qualification in Interaction Design, HCI, Product design, Industrial Design or equivalent work experience
You are adept at creating sketches to explore and communicate your ideas at an early stage
You have experience of using Omnigraffle as well as other commonly used UX tools, such as Axure, Balsamiq and Adobe Illustrator. You can quickly develop competence in new software tools when required
You can tell us about at least one project in which you’ve had to learn something new – about an industry, a technology, a user community, a design technique – and apply that new knowledge to your design work
Preferably, you’ll have designed products and services with complex user interfaces

Please send your CV along with your portfolio. 

At NTT DATA we place great importance on the value of diversity. The powerful effect of being able to call on a diverse workforce and all the benefits that go with it are central to our culture. It's a core principle that no one should be discriminated against because of their differences, such as age, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, religion or sexual orientation. We believe that building an inclusive and diverse workplace is essential to our success; we want our people to feel comfortable, be themselves and, as a result thrive.
