Senior Interaction Designer

For you, people come first. You master human centric design methods and know when to research and when trust your guts. You work in Lean UX mode by default – less specifications and more hands-on design, prototyping and testing with developers and business owners.

Must-haves:

  • Design skills: IA, wireframes, flows, prototyping
  • Content skills: an eye for detail, writing and editing copy
  • People skills: articulation and presentation skills

Senior Visual Designer

You have a deep understanding of scalability and different browsers, operating systems and devices. You enjoy working with all phases between ideation and delivery. Being a type nerd is a definitive bonus.

Must-haves:

  • Design skills: typography, branding, UI best practices, flows, prototyping
  • Content skills: an eye for detail, a sense of style for illustration & photography
  • People skills: articulation and presentation skills

Front-end developer / Technologist

You have a hacker-like mentality & curiosity towards technology.
You are fluent with all modern front end technologies and frameworks, possess good rapid prototyping skills, an excellent eye for detail and a passion to keep on the cutting edge on all things digital.

Must-haves:

  • Excellent HTML, CSS, JS skills
  • Deep understanding and experience in front-end frameworks, responsive web design and productive development short cuts
  • Good experience in modern content management systems, data base technologies and web analytics
  • Independent decision making, a craving for quality end results
  • A human centered stand point and a can do attitude
  • Eye for visual design and ability to quickly catch and build on designer’s ideas

Nice to have;

  • Node.js, Ruby, Python.
  • e-commerce platform knowledge
  • C#, C++, C
  • Internet of things experience and electronics tinkering

General requirements

We are not looking for a specialist here. Instead, you’ll be working on anything from the abstraction and problem solving at the top end of the value chain to designing new behaviours, services, systems, interfaces and interaction. You work on products and services that are predominantly digital: different web browsers are the most common platform here. You also need to be comfortable with designing applications and software for mobile devices, embedded systems, internet of things and platforms enabling new product development.

We are a fast moving environment so you need to be a self starter who’s not shy of starting a conversation of your work with your team and clients. On a more practical level, you need to be at home with Creative Cloud apps and to have chops to build your own work don’t hurt either. Curiosity towards the world and new things is a must.

What we offer

As an organization, we have been running flat and lean way before they became trendy terms of the day. That is why we appreciate people who are not afraid to step up and take responsibility when needed. In return, we offer you the chance to do the best work of your life with the best and brightest colleagues you’ll ever have. All this in a relaxed but professional working environment in central Helsinki, with clients in southern Finland and abroad. And of course the usual state-of-the-art tools you need to get the job done.
