Job Description

  Visual Design Consultant

Do you love making tech human? So do we.

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 with mobile layouts. You understand and can explain whether solutions will work from a technical perspective, and how to translate requirements into design specifications.

About the job

The User Experience (UX) Design team specializes in human-centred design. You’ll work with your team to plan, design and create UX transformation deliverables on projects, using your knowledge and skills in architecture and usability content.

You’ll excite clients, get them on board, then plan, create and deliver UX transformation solutions. You will look after architecture and usability content, and you’ll also enjoy a diverse role that often requires new or different inputs, processes or outcomes. You’ll have the freedom to experiment and explore, and get to make a real impact on our business - and our clients.

Your days will be a mix of research and design, and include:

Research user tests, in-depth interviews, focus groups, ethnographic field studies and surveys

Brainstorm work sessions with multi-disciplinary teams to inform vision and design strategy

Requirements gathering

Team with cross-functional technology and design groups to integrate solutions and requirements into UX strategies

Use a proven change-management framework to support adoption of a new product or service

Contribute to business development through client relationships and request-for-proposal submissions

Travelling as needed.

Your skills

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

You’ll likely have at least three years of relevant UX experience and a Bachelor’s degree in a field such as interaction design, human factors, computer interaction, behavioural psychology, or human/computer interaction, although we’re open to a similar degree or experience. We’d love it if you hold a Master’s degree.

Your experience ideally includes:

Using Lean UX and Agile UX techniques

Monitoring and reporting on VD trends

Facilitating workshops and using a range of methodologies for user research, interpreting the results accurately

Great interpersonal skills for partnering with team members and colleagues, and exciting others about experience design.

Must be able to work in Central schedule (6am to 2pm Western)
