Job description

At Usabilla, we believe digital interactions should be effortless. That’s why we’ve developed a product suite that helps our clients to test, measure, and improve the user experience across all digital touchpoints.

Our Product team works tirelessly to ensure our solution stands out in the SaaS scene worldwide. But as we continue to experience phenomenal growth, it can be hard to keep up. That’s why we’re looking for a creative and visionary Senior UI / Visual Designer to join the team and help drive the Usabilla name to impressive new heights.

Why we need you:

  • We’re currently in the midst of one of our toughest challenges yet. As we tackle restructuring our product you’ll be helping us to reinvent and redesign the user experience. You’ll create meaningful and thoughtful designs with the user's needs and behaviours in mind; all the while supporting our current client base through the transition.

  • Working with a comprehensive SaaS solution is a never-ending learning experience. We are increasingly becoming aware that general ‘ease of use’, as well as bringing delight to daily routine tasks is contributing to the overall efficiency and ROI of business software products. We want to lead the way here with creating a beautifully crafted and delightful user interface for our customers.

  • As our Visual Designer, your responsibilities will include areas of design such as iconography, layout, colour, information visualization (graphs and charts) as well as dynamic behaviours. You will be able to translate our brand values and identity into a fitting and strong aesthetic. You will use your knowledge, expertise and skills in all these fields to help our users successfully navigate and become comfortable with our products.

  • We are expanding our design system and as Visual Designer, you will work closely with front-end developers to expand and maintain this system as the central repository and only source of truth for UI components applied in product development.

  • As a UI / Visual Designer, you’ll contribute to the growth and development of our Design team. You’ll have a real say in defining processes, frequently collaborating with different stakeholders across various teams.

  • UI / Visual Design is highly valued here at Usabilla. It has a huge impact on all departments and the solutions we create; you’ll be one of the few who defines how our product looks and feels from start to end. You’ll work in close contact with Product Owners, UX Designers and Software Developers as well as with customers and our Customer Success team to ensure problems are tackled according to real insights.


Your skills:

  • You know that curiosity didn’t really kill the cat and you can’t get enough when it comes to staying up to date with the latest trends and styles, not only across UI design but in human behaviour too.

  • You’re professionally trained with a design degree in graphic design, visual communication, art school or comparable. Plus, you have relevant experience in a sophisticated software development environment, preferably in business software.

  • You have a strong and versatile design portfolio, built from several years of relevant industry experience

  • Strong leadership and communication skills are necessary when it comes to validating your ideas to different teams and stakeholders. You know how to get to the point, conducting productive and efficient discussions when presenting your work.

  • You back-up your choices with solid thinking and a clear rationale, converting insights and objectives into visual compositions, UI elements, illustrations etc working alongside UX Designers and Development teams

  • You’re able to effortlessly switch from specific, operational tasks to seeing the bigger conceptual picture for our domain depending on the time and resources available to you.

  • You’re an advocate for an Agile way of working based on fast iteration and validation cycles.
