About the role:
They’re seeking a dynamic UX Designer who can work on the development of digital products from research to design with top-tier clients, and also contribute to the firm’s growth in Africa. They’re a fast-paced, lean, and fun organization looking to re-think – and re-do – the way consulting work is done in emerging markets.
The role can be near-full time (~75%, leading to 100% full-time) or full-time from the start – they can be flexible for the right person.
The UX Manager will primarily work on consulting engagements in Africa, and occasionally in other emerging markets, mainly in Asia, and work directly with their private and public sector clients.
The role includes both research (mainly qualitative, such as ethnography, in-depth interviews, concept testing) and design (visual, graphic, interaction) skills. Depending on the project, you’ll work as part of a broader team of specialists in product, marketing, agile project management, software development, and data analysis.
On the research side, typical activities include developing user guides and doing user interviews, conducting ethnography, usability testing, and crafting user personas and journey maps. Design side activities involve developing wireframes, developing information architecture, UI flows and screens, and visual prototypes, both for digital and analog initiatives.
