Job Board

Service Designer
Vancouver (or remote), British Columbia, Canada

Introduction

The Service Designer will collaborate with Senior team members and client stakeholders to create insightful, empathetic, value-oriented experiences for organizations, their employees, and end customers. Utilizing design thinking and mixed research methodologies, you will conduct user research and testing, facilitate co-creation workshops, build digital prototypes, as well as contribute to the rationale behind human-centred business strategies.

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. You will harness your problem-solving skills to connect the dots between user pain points, opportunities, and insights derived from asking the right questions to the right people. Involving stakeholders in your process is second nature because you understand the challenges in change management across frontstage and backstage functions.

At POWERSHiFTER, we deliver brilliant digital solutions that put people first. We believe that organically fostering an environment based on equality, trust and transparency will generate great ideas.

As part of the POWERSHiFTER team, you will have access to some of the brightest minds in design, technology and strategy. You will work in an environment that values people, collaborating with team members, process and performance.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

We appreciate everyone who has taken the time to submit an application, but due to the high volume, we will only be contacting those who are successful in making in through to the next phase.
