UX Product Designer
Here at ustwo, we’re renowned for crafting amazing digital experiences. Whether for our roster of international clients and partners, or for our homegrown ventures, we build products/services with users at the very heart of our approach.
As the world changes around us, the challenges our clients are asking us to take on are becoming more fundamental, more strategic, and more vital than ever to the success of their organisations. We’re not simply building digital propositions, but challenging the core purpose and principles of the organisations we help.
The role of design in this process is evolving; a solution that both delights and engages the user often means being prepared for trade offs to ensure that the right product goes to market.
As a UX Product Designer at ustwo you will be involved in every aspect of the product development process, from researching and brainstorming concepts to iterating interactions before launch, advocating the user needs throughout.
Expect to work with a smart and caring cross-discipline team, delivering at speed that sees the client very much integrated within this team composition.
WHAT YOU WILL DO
Conduct user research, capture insights and liaise with stakeholders to understand the problem, identify user needs and behaviours, identify key design considerations and measures for what a successful design for a product could achieve.
Explore and communicate design concepts for digital products through artefacts like sketches, user flows, wireframes, prototypes, and detailed interaction specifications.
Validate design concepts by eliciting user feedback, measuring usability, considering market analysis, and balancing technical constraints/opportunities.
Engage clients, stakeholders and your team to ensure proposed design fits business goals, long term strategy and technical constraints in addition to user needs.
Understand and (where appropriate) challenge business requirements to champion user needs, as a way to further promote product and market strategy.
Foster a collaborative "One Team" approach between ustwo and clients/partners by engaging in an open and transparent working relationship.
Facilitate and participate in workshops and discussions to promote the communication of ideas.
Synthesise research insights and communicate them to the team and business stakeholders in a compelling way.
