Job Description

A (UX/UC) design fanatic, with excellent hands-on skills you’ll have a thorough knowledge of packages/processes required to craft exceptional experiences. We’ve got thoughts on what those skills/packages are, but we’re open to what works.

You’re great at identifying and understanding problems and opportunities; your mix of analytical skill and visionary ability results in effective solutions.

You’re a natural communicator (visual, written and verbal): comfortable engaging with clients, team-members, end-users; and adept at getting your idea across through a variety of methods (sketches, storyboards, user journeys, wireframes, prototypes, hi-fi design etc).

You own the activities centered around interaction design, but you’re happy participating in all kinds of UCD activity, including workshops and user interviews. You’re enthusiastic at the idea of working within teams of varying discipline and method, and have your own ideas about how to do it well.

You’re a bit of a pedant, in the best way, with the ability to focus on both the detail and the big picture, and the confidence to question specifications and proposed solutions when they are not right. At the same time, you’re adaptable and realistic about your abilities; you can estimate scope and time and prioritise, multi-task and communicate in order to manage expectations and meet deadlines.

You feel comfortable operating in ambiguous or unpredictable situations and can adapt to the context, helping to plan and implement the right combination of activities and deliverables, to best meet project goals. We sometimes need to ramp-up quickly to help our clients and need to be able to make a difference early in the project.

You appreciate working autonomously within a supportive environment. We value balance between life and work and want to provide the right conditions to enable you to be the best you can be.
