“Ease of use is invisible, but its absence sure isn’t”
Do you use your creativity to solve a problem? Then the role as UX-consultant at ALTEN might be something for you! The UX concept is incredibly broad. For example, your focus can be on a piece of preliminary research, or perhaps visual design, implementation or testing of a product.
At ALTEN you take on the challenge within different projects. One day you may interview end users about the bottlenecks related to a product or service. You process and analyse the input from these into a feature that requires development and design. You divide this into tasks such as wireframing, prototyping and visual design. The next day you are somewhere observing and giving a presentation about your product concept or facilitating a workshop to concretise the vision of a customer.
What role do you play as a UX-er at ALTEN?
Who are we looking for?
Do you always think something different from others and do you always want to know the ‘why’ behind a question? We are looking for a critical, curious UX consultant who is also analytical in order for to choose the right directions in exploring an issue.
