In a shape-shifting world, we're looking for a shaper of our design department, a UI designer who values UX principles, a mind that's creative and strategic.
Let’s be straightforward: you’ll be at the heart of our design operations, championing and supporting design culture at Around25.
On the short term: you will be taking over mobile and web projects, and from time to time handle requests from internal departments.
In the long run, we are looking to grow the department. So if you want to develop your leadership skills, Around25 is the place to step up and take ownership.
We want to see how your work integrates users' needs with a product's business logic. Why? Because this will define your entire design process: from vision to concept to implementation.
An ideal fit for us is a creative designer who can also identify a product’s weak spots, craft a solution and make informed decisions towards the best outcome. How? By grounding your work in:
- usability principles and techniques;
- organizing research and operations;
- keeping in touch with the latest design trends and how they impact business.
You'll enjoy working with us if:
- you're looking for an opportunity to grow in a flexible and dynamic work environment.
- you're driven to implement your ideas and to create positive change.
- you can easily spot solutions and are well-organized.
- you are comfortable talking and writing in English.
- nice to have: you have worked in a product development agency before.
How will your day look like?
You'll be in constant communication with developers, marketers, and project managers who are thirsty for your knowledge in designing intuitive user experiences. You will understand your role in a software development team so that you push for user-centric decisions - both at project and company level. At the end of the day, you will create deliverables such as user flows, wireframes, optimal UI, or prototypes.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions, take risks, and champion new ideas. Because we like to implement feedback, we know how to take constructive criticism in, and we prioritize design-driven decisions for our products.
We most value your willingness to learn new technologies but you should be familiar with the following already:
- Adobe Suite;
- Wireframing and prototyping tools.
We're 100% Apple-friendly, we use Slack for internal communication and we structure our work in Jira.
If you don't tick all the boxes above, worry not. The most important thing for us is that you are open to learning and growing into these skills.
As I've always said, we recruit for the attitude, and train for the skills.
