We believe that great design has the ability to engage and inspire people and we strive to rethink and redefine how people interact with commerce applications and products. Our creative designers are makers, facilitators, strategic thinkers, emerging technologists and conceptual problem solvers who make every decision an informed one. We value proven skills over big egos and thrive on positive, transparent teamwork.

As a Designer, you'll rely on design thinking and human-centered design principles and work closely with clients, product stakeholders and business partners to turn complex but ambiguous requirements into highly beautiful and elegant, usable and engaging design artefacts.

In this role, you will be working on next-generation concepts and forward-looking commerce and payment micro services.

* Translate new concepts, business requirements and workshop outcomes into storyboards and presentations

* Inform, communicate and present design strategy/rationale effectively to key stakeholders
* Collaborate with cross-functional teams of Innnovation Center and business teams to create compelling interactive and best-in-class experiences.
* Work closely with prototypers and developers and clients to deliver the final product within an agile environment as needed.
* Work closely with external design or research agencies and provide guidance.

Qualifications and Experience:

* 8+ years in related professional work, preferably working in design agency, consultancy, start up or established global corporates.
* Outstanding online portfolio demonstrating successful work samples.
* Expert knowledge of Sketch, Adobe CC and proficient working experience in prototyping tools such as InVisionApp, Axure, Principal, Visio or similar tools.

* Possess a strong design point-of-view and proven ability to communicate it.
* Strong working knowledge of user testing especially RITE and other user research methods.
* Strong storytelling skills (personas, customer journey maps, storyboards)
* Experience or knowledge in branding (colour, typography) is a big plus.
* Strong facilitator, collaborator, communicator (verbal and visual).
* Demonstrated knowledge in mobile platforms (iOS and Android).
