Role Description

Working closely with Art Directors, Developers and Project Managers on a day to day basis, the position requires a natural problem solver who can define and untangle UX challenges: transforming complex or unstructured scenarios into simple solutions. Analytical as well as highly creative you can demonstrate and execute smart and original ideas with simple, yet delightful UI design that work across a wide range of platforms and devices.

Rantmedia offers an environment to be yourself, while actively contributing to a fun culture that thrives on collaboration.

  • Identify appropriate UX research, analysis and testing activities.
  • Communicate your design ideas in the form of user journeys, wireframes, storyboards and mockups.
  • Create high-fidelity prototypes and monitor UX testing.
  • Design and prepare production-level assets for multiple platforms.
  • Act as the user-advocate and ensure everything looks, feels and works as intended.
  • Communicate with clients, empathising with their commercial and brand needs.

Requirements

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in UX/UI design or related field.
  • 2+ years commercial experience delivering digital apps (preferably for mobile).

  • Ability to present innovative ideas clearly and persuasively.
  • You are detail oriented, motivated and a natural problem solver.
  • Ability to give and take direction or feedback.

Desirables

  • Some Adobe After Effects or similar motion design experience is a plus, but not required.
  • Familiar working within an agile development environment.
  • Experience working with version control systems.
