UX Designer 

Posted by Charlotte Richmond

Background

We are looking for a passionate and driven UX Designer to work as part of our Development team, Aiimi Labs. You should be experienced in bringing a product to life – from early stage concepts through to prototypes, development, launch, and ongoing improvement. You should have knowledge of new product methodologies and processes such as Lean UX, hypothesis testing, MVPs, and agile development. It is important that you understand how to test not only a product’s usability, but also its conceptual model.

You will be working with senior stakeholders within Aiimi including the CEO and CTO and you should be comfortable in challenging assumptions (where necessary) and collaborating with people of that level.

The role requires an aptitude for team collaboration and open communication. You should have a positive, can-do attitude and enjoy working in a fast-paced, dynamic team. This is an opportunity to work on some exciting, visionary and disruptive software – candidates should be excited by the challenge that this will offer, be passionate about their work and have an amazing attitude to bring to the team!
