You will be part of a tight knit team of innovative practitioners who are obsessed with understanding the needs of our customers and have the skills to partner with them in experimenting with new ideas that can open up new markets or radically change how they deliver existing products/services. Our goal is to double our customers’ inventiveness by doubling the number of experiments they can run (Jeff Bezos).

In this role you will use your UI/UX expertise to show customers the art of the possible in developing prototypes using machine learning, deep learning, IoT and serverless architectures. You will apply design and user experience best practices that ensures the prototypes provide a foundation to production solutions. We will provide a creative environment where high judgement failure is embraced so you can move fast without compromising on research time that is required to experiment with new ideas.

Expert confidence in applying UX best practices to design problems - Keeping the customer and end user in focus without sacrificing velocity. You’re comfortable with committing to design decisions through peer review and rapid testing methodologies.

Comfort with code. You take ownership of your design output and see it through into the functional prototype. An ideal candidate will understand the technical investments or limitations and use that to inform their design decisions. This also means you aren’t afraid to pitch in on light front-end development or ‘design in code’ on occasion.
