Mid-Senior Level Designer / Nordkapp
We are Nordkapp, the change agency for visionaries. Together, we clarify your strategy, transform your business, and deliver world-class human experiences.
We are looking for talented mid-senior level designers with experience in digital product/service design to effectively join our team.
What do we expect?
- You are a full-stack designer with relevant experience (4+ years) in product & service design, either in-house, at an agency or on your own hustle.
- We are a people-first company, and we value the ability to articulate & present one’s thoughts & ideas clearly. With us, designs are created together with other people. You have the agency and wit to know when to write and rewrite your briefs, and when to work together as a team.
- Actively participating and contributing in workshops and collaborative work to take your team and stakeholders along the process, delivering clarity, defining ownerships & next steps. You understand the potential net positive (and negative) impact of your work on the business and society.
- Finally, while you might not have the direct responsibility for a project, communicating directly with clients, without any project managers or middle persons is still important.
