Product Designer (UX focus) - Stuttgart

Product Stuttgart, Germany


Description

Social media is chaotic, unstructured, unpredictable, exciting. It is the voice of today.We love it, because at Brandwatch we bring structure and meaning to these voices by harnessing the power of social to drive intelligence and answer the questions which matter most to our clients.

We are growing our product design team and are looking for someone to join us on our quest to build amazing SaaS products which push the boundaries of convention, have flair, originality, and make our customers sing out loud with delight.

We want the ooh and we want the ahh! We want personality, and we want grace. If you are a talented UX designer who is motivated by any of the above and want to work in a highly collaborative design team where your ideas count and can tangibly make a difference, then this could be the perfect role for you.

About the team you'll be joining;

Our product design team is split across Brighton, Stuttgart and Berlin. We have a wide range of skills from pure user research through to pure visual design, and a number of people with a blend in between. You will be working in an interdisciplinary team in Stuttgart, collaborating with engineers on a day to day basis, but report to our Head of IA.

About the role;

This role offers a great opportunity for you to help us innovate, develop and deliver a consistently brilliant and delightful product experience. Day to day you’ll be working with small cross-functional teams to help bring new products to life, or improve existing products. Product design and engineering teams sit right next to each other, and our culture is less ego, more friendly and welcoming. You might join a particular product team for a while before moving on to another helping you become well versed in our product portfolio and see the bigger picture. And there’s a lot to see.

You will:

  • Have broad commercial experience working on digital products (ideally web apps / SaaS) focussing on UX design
  • Submit a portfolio that demonstrates excellence in your craft - especially the process that leads to outputs and outcomes
  • Be comfortable conducting user research, usability testing as well as translating findings into design opportunities
  • Be able to plan, organise and execute all aspects of the design stage from concept to prototype
  • Be conversant with the tools and methodologies used by Product Managers and Technical Architects
  • Know how to work with established design systems / pattern libraries
  • Be able to distil and translate complexity into crisp, modern, accessible, inviting experiences
  • Be comfortable working with and presenting to a variety of stakeholders - from developers to senior management
  • Have experience driving UX design within an agile / lean development environment
  • Document and communicate your work efficiently and effectively

As an added bonus you might:
  • Understand and be conversant with the core design principles in colour, typography, psychology, movement and behaviour
  • Have a passion for data visualisation
  • Have designed and tested information dashboards before
  • Have experience working across multi-disciplinary teams, such as engineering and marketing
