  • Personality: We value people who are inclusive, curious, motivated, team-oriented, demonstrate leadership, take initiatives, and create relations.

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.

The role

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.
