We're hiring!

Abzu is an international group of specialists with many years of experience in high-performance computing, computational neuroscience, bioinformatics, deep learning, mathematics, physics, and business. We’re building something truly new in the Life Science field. In order to help us invent the future, we are looking for a senior UXer.

UX Design Lead

Copenhagen or Barcelona

You will be an integral part of the multi-disciplinary Product team in either Copenhagen or Barcelona and play a pivotal role in inventing Abzu’s first core product. You will have sole responsibility over the UX direction and process, working with all manner of stakeholders and customers alike, to help bring about our vision and ensure our approach is the right one. 

You’ll be developing the UX for a product, mostly from scratch, in a space where there are very few templates to follow. That may mean working on anything from user research, interactive prototyping, UX testing, iterating, guiding implementation where needed, and whatever else required to achieve the best approach. You’ll need broad experience and interests, a self-starting, entrepreneurial mentality, and the ability to deal with the ambiguity that comes with deep tech product development.

About you...

The right candidate has a clear view on how to navigate the above and a desire to work in (mostly) uncharted territory. Preferably you have a strong design school background plus several years experience in core (digital) product design. Alternatively, demonstrable experience in designing novel products with a strong understanding of and skill in the design processes that enable that. Experience designing in a scientific field is a clear plus, but not required. Working in a team distributed across 2 offices entails some travel.

You probably have:

  • 5+ years in a senior UX role
  • Bachelor's degree in Design, HCI, UX, or similar or equivalent work experience
  • A portfolio or other way of showing examples of your work

We’d love it if...

  • You are a design generalist. You might tilt more towards one design discipline over another, but you’re familiar with the full range of skills required to design a product, including user research and testing
  • You have a clear point of view about design and about your work
  • You’re a fast learner
  • You thrive in ambiguity and are comfortable with change and context switching
  • You’re a curious and ambitious good human
  • You’re able to travel on occasion, if informed in advance

About Abzu

Founded in February 2018, Abzu is an applied research startup with offices in Copenhagen, Denmark and Barcelona, Spain.

Abzu was born from the desire to challenge the fundamental assumptions of contemporary, black box AI. Abzu’s pioneering artificial intelligence, the QLattice®, accelerates analysis and insights through transparent and explainable models.

You’ll have the opportunity to be part of a highly-skilled, fast-thinking, and energetic team. Our philosophy and culture are based on self management, which empowers people to be themselves and make their own decisions about their work.

We are focused on creating the best environment where people have integrity, a strong sense of responsibility, and collaborate in creative and inspiring ways. We believe and trust in people, their high potential, and inestimable value.

This requires transparency and trust, which is an integral part of our technology and who we are. This organizational style is not a fit for everyone. 

Our mission

Our mission is to build a machine where cognition arises through self-organization of millions of interactions. We are bringing explainable artificial intelligence to researchers and scientists worldwide.

With the rapid advancement of machine learning, anyone can fit a model to a dataset. However, it is still too complicated to explain what is going into a decision, why a specific outcome happens, and what's truly important.

Our graph-based technology is currently used in the life science and pharmaceutical industries to find answers to problems by leveraging our technology’s "explorative" ability to test millions of potential models and seamlessly pick the simplest and most accurate ones.

As a result, researchers and scientists can test hypotheses faster than ever using one standardized machine learning framework to interpret and explain what is going into a decision (and not just predicting it).

We look forward to hearing from you!
