"Ease of use is invisible, but its absence sure isn't." Do you use your creativity to come up with a suitable solution for every issue? Then the role as a UX consultant at ALTEN might be something for you!
The concept of UX is incredibly broad. For example, your focus can be on a piece of preliminary research, or visual design, the implementation or testing of a product. In any case, the user is always central to you.
Do you always think slightly differently 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 analytically strong, so that he or she can choose the right directions in exploring an issue. For this role it is important that you have above-average social skills, where you have to deal with different stakeholders within each project. You can adapt your communication to these stakeholders, ranging from management to application specialists.
You like to take the initiative and are committed to turning a relatively small, growing proposition within ALTEN into a great success.
At ALTEN you take on the challenge within various projects. One day you may be conducting interviews with end users about the bottlenecks of a product or service. You process and analyze the input of this into a feature where you will work out the development and/or design. You divide this into tasks such as wireframing, prototyping and a visual design. The next day you are observing somewhere, giving a presentation about your product concept or facilitating a workshop to concretize a customer's vision.
- Completed Bachelor/Master Industrial Design, Human-Technology Interaction, Communication and Multimedia Design, UX-Design or a comparable design direction
You have experience with and knowledge of:
- Software development
It is not a requirement, but you have an advantage if you have knowledge of:
- WPF, QML, HTML5, C# and possibly C++;
- Being able to translate User Requirements into a design;
- Adobe XD, Sketch, Figma, Photoshop, Indesign or Illustrator
Did you enjoy the conversations as much as we did? Then you immediately receive a permanent contract. If you choose to do so, the next step is to choose a car. We also provide a laptop. We think time for relaxation is just as important, so you get 27 vacation days as standard with us. Do you want more days? You can buy 10 more. You don't have to worry about your pension, we arrange that for you with an excellent non-contributory pension scheme.
With the right guidance from your Business Manager and Technical Manager, you will embark on your new ALTEN adventure.
