UX designer

TL;DR

We are looking for a UX designer to join our ship. Someone who is intrigued by people, how they use technology and can test if a digital solution answers their need.

About us

We are an ambitious digital design studio that focuses on Durable Design. Durable means qualitative design that lasts for a long time and has a long term positive effect on people. We think research is key to a good design process.

We work together as a team of specialists, with people with different talents and backgrounds.
