You will facilitate workshops, design sprints, presentations, and meetings. You will also have the opportunity to present and host Morgenboosters where we aim to inspire the world around us.

Dare to Matter through design thinking
You will join a cross-disciplinary team that works with our clients to deliver meaningful change through the design of products, services, processes, and businesses.
We are design thinking practitioners who are eager to learn through hypotheses', prototypes, and experiments, to devise new solutions that make an impact.
As part of a cross-disciplinary team, you will be a driver in figuring out "what's the problem really?" in the strategic phase. In the concept phase, you will often work design sprint-based. You will ideate, prototype, test, and learn. You will mature the product and detail interactions during the build and implementation phase to the MVP launch.
There will be dynamic weeks with a high pace and weeks with time dedicated to deep-diving into the details e.g. detailed prototypes.
You will have the opportunity to continuously develop and hone your UX skills and profile. We are a company and a UX department with broad skillsets, who thrive on feedback and sparring, enjoy experimenting, taking initiative, and making ideas tangible. You will have the opportunity to further develop our methods within UX.
We are a strategic design company that has been around since 2000. We are a team of nearly 40 skilled people and each of us adds to the unique 1508-spirit. We allow no assholes and no bullshit. We see our culture as our primary asset and our unfair advantage. We love to experiment with our own company and rhythm of work. Some of the experiments that have come to last are e.g. Fireside chats, company-wide stand-up on Fridays, service jams, open management meetings, and project retros.
Please apply by sending an email to email@example.com with the subject "Senior UX Designer".
You are also welcome to contact our Strategy and UX Director, Louise W. Klinker, on firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone +45 7025 1508 to learn more about the job. We look forward to hearing from you.
Application deadline: 1st November – but we’d like to hear from you as soon as possible.
