Senior UX Designer

Job description

We are looking for a UX designer to be a key member of our creative team, who will help us create beautiful products that have a positive impact in people’s lives. You will drive projects from concept to production, taking ownership over UX strategy, user research, translating insights into concepts, creating user journeys, sketches, prototypes and user testing. 

 

As a Senior UX Designer at Above, you will collaborate with an exciting mix of competencies, from industrial designers, to mechanical and software engineers. We are looking for someone that will drive client communication, and deliver best-in-class solutions in a variety of projects: from digital products to physical experiences.

 

Ultimately we are looking for someone that is passionate about designing for people with holistic eyes, and that has a deep understanding of digital interfaces and interactions — no matter where they materialise.


About us

We at Above are devoted to creating value in people’s everyday lives. We are experts in breaking down boundaries between the physical and the digital with the fusion of hardware and software through products and services. We work with the full stack: from strategic concepting all the way through to manufacturing.

 

One of our core philosophies is that we believe in prototyping early and often by bringing designers and engineers together from the very start of a project. If our designers can understand and make technology decisions, while our engineers can grasp and influence the user experience, then we can truly find meaningful collaboration that results in actual relevant products.

 

We work with amazing international brands, local Scandinavian heroes and a fantastic collection of startups. We also have a passion for creating our own products and have a good track record of successful start-up ventures. We’re a team of warm, welcoming, dedicated professionals that love to build cool stuff. In everything we do, we strive for a world class result and we believe you share that mindset.

 

About our creative culture

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.
