Description

Introduction


The UX Designer will collaborate with senior team members, and across multidisciplinary teams to create insightful, empathetic, data-driven experiences for clients and their users. Utilizing design thinking and working within an agile process, you will conduct user research and testing, create user flow diagrams, build comprehensive wireframes in Figma, as well as contribute to the rationale behind user-centred design decisions.

No one is an island — We believe in sharing work early and often, so you will work iteratively and collaboratively on rough notes and sketches, before hunkering down on detailed high-quality deliverables for our clients.
