Lead UX Designers / K Group

What kind of a LEAD UX DESIGNER FOR K GROUP would you become?

The K Group Design team is looking for a new colleague, to become Lead UX designer for Finland’s largest food media and grocery e-com service, K-Ruoka.fi. If you’re a combination of hands-on attitude, excellent design skills, experience from working with large-scale development teams and enjoy working with a fun, diverse team of professionals, we want to hear from you!

In the role, you’ll be both doing hands-on design on our e-com site and content presentation, as well as steering the work of other designers (also external) in the product team. We expect you to mentor other designers, provide feedback and find ways to improve their work. You’ll also work closely with other designers to develop and maintain our design system.

We expect you to have references of similar large-scale design projects, either in-house or at an agency with large clients. Experience on E-commerce is a big plus. To succeed in the role, you’ll need to have good communication and networking skills and an ability to collaborate with designers, product owners, business and developers alike. Creating concepts and production design is a given; but you should also have a strong understanding of design systems and be prepared to also advocate the design system approach in the organization. Knowledge of the Finnish language also helps you, as you’ll conduct user research and analyze customer feedback.

With us in the K-Group, you’ll be part of defining the future experience of multichannel grocery retail. You’ll get an opportunity to be part of an ongoing transformation and get to work with a fun team of professionals making it happen.

Interested? Please get in touch, tell us more about yourself, what we could expect from you and what you would expect from us. Let’s start the work to make shopping fun!
