Job description

As an User Experience Designer @ Skydreams, you are involved in every step of the product development process. From problem statement to implementation, you are responsible for both interaction and visual design. You have an important role in turning Homedeal and Moving24 into the strongest brands in the market and the opportunity to develop new brands from the get-go.

Together with the UX lead, you are responsible for the design of new solutions and improvements to our existing products. You will gather and discover business requirements, user insights and technical boundaries. You can translate these into new user flows, customer journey maps, wireframes, prototypes or another suitable deliverable if needed. You keep the big picture in mind and – at the same time – you are fully aware of the important details in the UI.

Work at Skydreams
