You design UI elements, interactions, and screens. You will develop our UI guidelines with colors, typography, icons, animations & interaction principles.
You create user flows, develop new features and designs to maximize user engagement, and convey cooking fun via our app.
You will design, carry out and evaluate design tests and user interviews to incorporate the results into further development.
You create prototypes for quick testing and validation of your design ideas.
You develop prototypes and A / B tests to quickly test and improve many ideas. You decide when low-fi sketches are sufficient or a pixel-perfect prototype is required.

You have at least 4 years of experience in UI / UX design in a consumer-focused tech company or agency.
You were already part of several product launches, and you know what is required to create outstanding, user-friendly interface designs.
You understand economic efficiency, high customer benefit, ease of use, and aesthetics.

You have experience with design thinking methods, illustration, and motion design.

No one is perfect. If you don't tick all the boxes but have the desire to grow into it - then it's you who we are looking for.
