Senior UX Designer / Sandvik

Senior UX Designer

Business Unit Automation is the home of AutoMine® – the world leading solution for autonomous mining. We work closely together with our Sandvik Mining and Rock Solutions product areas to serve our customers. Our focus is developing fully automated and robotic mining technologies for mobile machinery, including machine vision, machine learning and artificial intelligence with an aim to revolutionize the underground and surface mining industry. 

We are now looking for a customer oriented SeniorUX Designer for our Business Unit. The position is full-time, permanent and based in Tampere, Finland.

About your mission

As an UX Designer, you transform ideas, discussions and technical requirements into workflows, concepts, wireframes and prototypes. To succeed, you need to be curious and strive to understand the end-user needs by whatever means are applicable: via user studies or workshops with internal product experts. You make sense of complexity, identify the essential parts and present them to the user in intuitive and elegant solutions. You drive the UX work forward and iterate the design with other team members.

You work with various kinds of products ranging from machine UIs and control room software to desktop tools and mobile apps. Our products are made for professional users in a mining context, for environments and tasks that are not familiar from everyday life. You are not intimidated by complexity, information overload or technical details, but make an effort to learn and understand how to fit the pieces together.

Depending on the project, you may work with a team in Tampere or at other Sandvik sites around the world. Typically you will own the product UX and you can affect how UX work is conducted in each project.

Your work matters: very often the user interface that you design is a key part of the end-user’s job.

About your background

You have suitable degree in a UX-related field and experience in UX design, preferably with non-consumer products. You value the core usability underneath a pretty surface and that shows in your work. Your Figma designs are clear and clean and you are familiar with design systems. You communicate the nuances and reasoning behind your design work in excellent English and preferably also in Finnish.

What is in it for you?

As a long-term UX owner in a product, you get to see the whole life cycle from first ideas to updates based on feedback from the field. Your work makes an impact toward safer and more sustainable mining all around the world. You work in a truly international environment with a lot of opportunities for your professional development and growth.

In addition, we offer you good employee benefits, possibility to work partially remotely, and inclusive corporate culture focused on sustainable development, with values such as Innovation, Fair Play, Customer Focus and Passion to Win. We believe in an inclusive, equal and open-minded culture, and we nurture our diversities to form a solid foundation for achieving great results. Are you intrigued?
