Digital Product Designer

Are you looking to craft world-class digital experiences in a company of curious and sharp minds? Does the idea of working with industry leaders from visionary e-commerce to education, airlines to financial services, and healthcare to the public sector give you butterflies? If the answer is yes, we may have a job for you.

We’re looking for digital product designers to join our office in Helsinki.

    • Working on different levels of abstraction
    • Building a backlog of goals and features for the product

    • Building functional prototypes based on research findings
    • Creating designs using modern tools to produce interactive prototypes and user flows 
    • Polishing the finest details of a product demo
    • Respecting accessibility guidelines and having a solid knowledge of UX patterns and cornerstones
