Senior Digital Product Designer

We are looking for a Senior Digital Product Designer to drive the design of our scientific discovery application.

Abzu Barcelona

Abzu Copenhagen

Abzu® is building a scientific discovery application called Reason®. Reason is a brand new, immersive workflow that augments the human mind to answer the world’s persistent questions in science, business, and everyday life.
We are looking for a Senior Digital Product Designer to drive the design of our scientific discovery application, based in Barcelona or Copenhagen.

Your team

You’ll be an integral part of a small cross-functional Product team with expertise in software engineering, user experience, artificial intelligence, and product development. You’ll collaborate closely with Marta, our UX’er, as well as with the product team developers: Tom, Roger, Emil, Jaan, Casper, and Valentina. More teammates will be joining us in the coming months. Read more about each of us here.

The team works in a self-managed way, where the pragmatic approach and user value win the day. We are highly collaborative across offices and teams, so it’s important to be good at teaching, learning, and exchanging ideas.

As the team (and the company) is distributed between two locations, we have occasional gatherings and you will be required to travel to Copenhagen/Barcelona every now and then.

Your role

You’ll play a pivotal role in shaping design decisions around Abzu’s first core product. Together with Marta, you will have responsibility over the UX direction and processes, working with different stakeholders and customers, to help bring about our vision and ensure our approach is the right one.
Your design team will be tasked with conducting user research, developing wireframes and prototypes, performing usability testing, and whatever else is required to create a product that satisfies the needs of both business and customers.

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 the design processes that enable that.

Experience designing in a scientific field is a clear plus, but not required.

  • 5+ years in a senior UX/UI or digital product design role
  • Experience in defining and conducting user research and translating the results into actionable plans to improve user experience and product
  • Strong UI and interaction design skills
  • Experience designing for complex SaaS products
  • Proficiency in Figma and adapting existing Design Systems (e.g., MUI)
  • A portfolio or other way of showing examples of your work
  • Experience providing guidance and mentorship to other designers

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
  • You are a fast learner
  • You thrive in ambiguity and are comfortable with change and context switching
  • You have a passion for AI and science or research

How to apply

We will review applications as they come in, but please apply by the 15th of February, 2023 by sending your CV and cover letter to Maria Jacobsen at maria.jacobsen@abzu.ai.
