UX/UI Designer

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

As a designer in the digital team you will be designing high-quality websites, user interfaces, interactive wayfinding screens and other digital environments. You’ll work together with designers from other Velvet design disciplines – strategic, branding and environmental. 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 have offices in Tallinn and Tartu with the mindset of being online-first (and written) in our communication. You are empowered to work remotely and we are flexible with where you spend your working hours, but we expect you to be mainly located in Estonia as we will be coming together regularly to work on complex issues or have fun.

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, hands-on from the fuzziest of concepts to the final commit.

  • Communicating with your team regularly and proactively.
  • Stay up-to-date on emerging visual and technical 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.
  • Working towards building a better world. Truly. We solve unique problems, work with game changing projects and partners in skilled and multifaceted teams.

We expect you to have:

  • Previous experience in other creative agencies or in-house design teams.
  • Experience and know your way around Figma, Adobe Suite 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.
  • Good written and verbal communication skills.

I’m in! What’s next?

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

We don't

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