Are you interested in joining a growing Design team within an innovative, collaborative, client-focused and low-ego environment? We are looking for creative and data-oriented Senior UX Designers to work on our highest value and most challenging client engagements.
Who we are
At Tangity, the global studio of the NTT DATA Design Network, we break down complexity to the human scale. We create tangible and intuitive solutions that have a positive impact on companies and society.
As a design studio, our job doesn't stop once a product is launched, it continues until the idea succeeds out in the wild. We accompany businesses on their path of evolution or radical innovation, including testing, measurement, and optimization, while empowering their way of work. We help them look toward the future and imagine the long-term impact their solutions will have on people, the planet and society.
To do so, we focus on people's needs and desires and leverage all of NTT DATA's technology. NTT DATA, Trusted Global Innovator, is a dedicated IT services and solutions partner for customers worldwide: headquartered in Tokyo and employing more than 100,000 professionals in over 50 countries.
What you’ll be doing
As a Senior UX Designer, you will focus on our clients’ products and services, developing a strong empathy with those who use them. Armed with this empathy, you will craft design concepts that meaningfully improve the user experience of those products. You will take those concepts from paper or whiteboard sketches through to detailed, precise wireframes and prototypes that allow developers to understand the detail behind your proposals. As part of a growing design team, you will have the chance to contribute fresh ideas and ways of working.
Reviewing requirements gathered from client stakeholders and subject matter experts, and exploring how these can be translated into a compelling design concept
Lead and participate in collaborative sketching workshops alongside colleagues and client stakeholders
Collaborating with other interaction designers to carry out user research, discovering the insights that will guide your concepts
Carrying out user testing remotely and/or in-person
Illustrating user journeys, personas and goals, information models and more
Drawing upon existing design standards and pattern libraries, as well as identifying opportunities to expand them where necessary
Producing wireframes and interactive prototypes to depict proposed functionality to stakeholders, potential users, developers and other audiences
Providing developers and business analysts with detail about your design concepts, through annotations and/or verbal briefings
Actively seeking out feedback and constantly challenging both your own ideas and those of others on your team
Working closely with UI Designer to collaboratively sketch out early thinking and to iterate on detailed interaction design work
What you'll need
You have a talent and passion not only for UX design but also for information architecture, prototyping, and user research. You are deeply curious about people — their motives, their environments, the things they are trying to achieve — and recognise that they are at the core of any design project you carry out. Bad user experiences frustrate you and you would take every opportunity you get to eliminate them. Your career as a professional interaction designer is off to a promising start but you are looking for a new set of challenges to help your skills develop.
Your career might previously have led you into a related field — for example, visual design, business analysis or development — but you are now keen to develop a deep specialism in UX Design
5+ years of experience of UX role in either a client or agency environment
You are adept at creating sketches to explore and communicate your ideas
Experience in Mobile, web and responsive environments
Creation of user journeys and experience maps
Experience running user research and user testing
You have experience of UX tools, such as Axure, InVision, Sketch. Experience in Zeplin and Userzoom would be desirable
Preferably, you’ll have designed products and services with complex user interfaces
A knowledge and understanding around accessibility within design
Ability to confidently participate in and lead workshops with key stakeholders and clients
Whilst not essential, it would be nice if you had an understanding of HTML5 and CSS, AEM, Angular and CMS systems and Jira
What we can offer you
Opportunity to work on NTT IP-led projects to support your ideas and have a positive impact on society
Empathy and Flexibility
Help decide the way we shape the growth of Tangity, through our Culture Club, Growth Club and Ops Club, you’ll play a part in those decisions
Finally, this is a fantastic time to join the company as we continue to grow rapidly.
