We are a mirror ball & embrace diversity, not only nationalities & backgrounds but also of competencies. Made up of industrial, digital- and service designers, mechanical, electrical- and software engineers, split over three offices - Stockholm, Malmö and Shenzhen.

 

One of our core philosophies is that we believe in bringing designers and engineers together from the start. When our designers understand the state of the art tech-enablers and our engineers get the big picture, the user experience moves from a vision into the market – and beyond, creating value in people’s everyday lives.

You’ll be comfortable developing and executing user research and insights, guiding clients, creating and delivering concepts, personas, storyboards, user flows, and construct functional prototypes. All from a cross-discipline perspective that considers multiple aspects of the brand/business/experience.   

 

Our culture heavily relies on creative teamwork where everyone is an important decision maker. You will be able to influence ideas, platforms and upcoming briefs as part of a multidisciplinary team. Observing, reflecting and making is the approach that the team uses to overcome our everyday challenges together.

 

What we will be looking for when we meet you
