What we are looking for

We are working on the next generation of Profoto digital products and we need a UX/UI designer to join the team. Someone who wants to head the design of our Profoto Camera apps and make our award-winning website Profoto.com even better.

Another part of your duties will be working with our marketing and web teams to promote Profoto’s products on its website, make our e-commerce platform more user-friendly and intuitive to attract and retain customers.

Your qualifications

  • A love for photography. Our products solve photo problems
  • End-to-end UX experience with consumer software products: going from user personas and requirements to user stories, conceptual design, MVP, user testing, information architecture to interaction design and visual design

  • Experience with establishing UX design processes and frameworks
  • Attention to aesthetic detail
  • Experience working with engineers to shape features
  • Excellent communication skills
  • MSc in Design, Computer Science, Engineering or a related field
