Interaction Designer

We’re looking for a interaction designer into our digital team who wants to work with a team of award-winning designers, developers, researchers, and producers to design user-centered digital environments.

As an interaction designer in the digital team you will be creating digital products and services across wide variety of clients in both the public and private sector. On projects ranging from websites to large scale applications. You’ll work together with designers from other Velvet design disciplines — strategic, branding, environmental and live events design. We need you to know where value comes from and how to create it.

How do we work, learn, and play?

We are in constant debate as to what is the best approach to a particular project. We strive to use the right tools for the job and regularly evaluate ways to work smarter. We are passionate about the quality and consistency of the products we deliver. The team is free to choose how they work to deliver the best results.

We are remote-friendly and flexible with where you spend your working hours. We have offices in Tallinn and Tartu with the mindset of being online-first (and written) in our communication.

We have the necessary snacks, drinks, wellness benefits for gyms, other health services, and team retreats fitting for a 2020 Design Agency of the Year and 2021 Digital Design Agency of the Year.

What you’ll be doing:

We need you to work with the project from idea to launch, together with the team, following the full design process, from conducting research to conceptualising and designing the product.

  • Determining users goals and defining the necessary product interactions
  • Creating wireframes and prototypes that illustrate key product interactions
  • Conducting testing to identify problems and areas for improvement
  • Together with the UX/UX designers and developers develop layout and visuals
  • Presenting your work to clients and your team
  • Plan, scope and define your work with the team
  • Stay up-to-date on emerging trends and methods and share your knowledge across the team
  • Continuously improve your team’s processes, methods, and tools.
  • Taking full ownership of your work.
  • Work in tight collaboration with your team and thrive on providing and receiving honest feedback.

Ideally, you have:

  • Previous experience in other agencies or in-house design teams as UX or interaction designer.
  • Experience and know your way around Figma, Adobe Suite, Miro and other tools of the trade.
  • Capability to back your design decisions with research, proven practices and data.
  • Ability to work with English speaking team and clients.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.

I’m in! What’s next?

Write us at job@velvet.ee with your CV/LinkedIn and portfolio before December 6th and we’ll get in touch with you as soon as possible. If you have any questions, let us know.

Why people love it here

We are not big on hierarchy, we are big on collaboration and straight talk. We are friendly, playful and sometimes we like to break the rules.

We do

speak up, take care of each other, start with empathy, fuck up like pros, work for business value, collaborate like crazy, punch above our weight and deliver kick-ass work!

We don't

speak ill of our competitors, blame the client, work with alcohol, tobacco, gambling, pay-day loans, political parties or assholes.
