You know how to design IT to create solutions that are used by people not machines, humanizing technology and empowering business.

About you

You enjoy researching, designing and proposing solutions. You understand and can explain whether solutions will work from a technical perspective, and how to translate requirements into design specifications.

You work with your team to plan, design and create UX transformation deliverables on projects, using your knowledge and skills in architecture and usability content.

Travel as needed.

About you

You understand disciplines including UX research methods, information architecture, usability testing and content strategies, and you’re comfortable with visual design capabilities and strategies.

Knowledge of visual design capabilities and strategies, and you may also know about content strategy.

Running workshops and using different methods for research, ensuring that the results are interpreted accurately.
