We are on the lookout for what the market would call a UX/UI designer, with a digital content eye. However, if you are going to do us the honour of making your journey a part of our story, its only fair that we be disarmingly honest about the kind of person we want. But first, lets set the scene
Were Walulel The Geospatial, Geocivic, Geosocial Company. We piqued commercial interest as an urban data company who gave people the tools to understand the quality of their neighbourhoods. Now we command attention because we craft and perfect, digital platform solutions to 21st Century urban problems. Were a merry band of engineers, auctioneers, coders, cartographers whove, since, we set up, spent over 30,000 hours wrestling with servers, algorithms and GIS Systems, all so you dont have to! Were proud of us, but now we want to move from good to great! Culture wise, youll be joining a team is nothing but fun and an institution where your opinion will always count.. We work hard, look out for each other and collaborate ruthlessly. Were a scale-up, so we try to innovate in everything we do and involve staff as much as they desire, in all aspects of our development lifecycle as it is our core belief that where two knowledge bases meet, wisdom occurs
Youre a designer at heart. Not just a Sketch Supremo, Figma phenom or XD extraordinaire, irrespective of the tool, you genuinely enjoy the challenge of transforming existing conditions, be they visual, audible or logical into new ones, to achieve purposeful future improvements. On top of that youd be blessed with the humility to iterate upon your designs for the sole purpose of better meeting the genuine human needs of early and late stage adopters of interfaces. If you additionally have the fortitude of will and emotional intelligence to effect interface related improvement outcomes in an organisation that wants you to win, then frankly youre the very person we want to have working alongside us.
Were dreaming about the chance to work with a UX/UI & Digital Content Designer that can, over time, evolve from a person who advises on how we can best deliver tantalising interactions that delight users, into someone that is a keystone, underpinning a design-first culture within our company. This means youd be responsible for collaboratively, quantitatively and qualitatively, considering:
What our customers need, what their pain-points are, and where improvement opportunities exist;
How can our delightful customer interactions be rendered in a way that deliver fair value exchange;
What are the existing and omitted capabilities and resources required to achieve a sustainable competitive design led advantage;
What tools mix such as storyboards, wireframes, mock-ups, and interactive digital content, most effectively communicate the teams ideas; and
Which external collaborator deliver superior value-creating experiences to customers.
How handoff and design system adherence can be improved.
An appreciation of purpose-guided content delivery systems with minimal loss in clarity and accuracy.
Capacity to navigate Graphic Design tools, such as the Adobe Creative Suite and Open Source alternatives.
Previous experience of iterating ideas using browser based design tools such as Figma.
The competence to quantitatively and qualitatively explain decision rationale.
Talent regarding the creation of wireframes, prototypes, storyboards and user-flows.
The ability to originate video content and visual imagery for internal and external use.
Holistic understanding needed to participate in data-driven user discovery
