  • Define the right interaction model and evaluate its success
  • Gathering and evaluating user requirements, in collaboration with product owners and development engineers
  • Find creative ways to solve UX problems (e.g. usability, findability)
  • Analyzing competitor products and industry trends
  • Designing user interface elements, like menus, tabs and widgets
  • Adhere to style standards on fonts, colors and images
  • Collaborative participation in code review process and help other team members

Requirements

  • MSc in Design, Computer Science, Engineering or a related field

Your profile

To be succesful in this role we expect you to be mpathic, to have an analytical mindset, in-depth understanding of UX/UI design, experience conducting user research sessions, understanding of qualitative and user-centered design methodologies, working knowledge of quantitative analysis and statistics, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills.
