Position

UX Manager (f/m)

Contract Type

Permanent / full-time

Location

Munich

Philosophy

At Centigrade, we believe in user experience as a driver for great technology – not the other way around. When a software tool is perfectly aligned to its users’ needs, it may change the way users think and collaborate. Whenever we support our customers from all kinds of industries in developing innovative user interface designs and technologies, we strive to reflect this very philosophy.

Key Responsibilities

As a UX Manager you develop interaction concepts and ideas for a better workflow design of different software products using a holistic and integral approach. In close cooperation with both customers and colleagues you proactively devise and introduce new approaches, while providing structure for developing a product that makes both customers and users happy. Your key responsibilities and skills are:

  • Analyzing requirements, target groups and needs the product should meet
  • On that basis, creating personas and scenarios that form the foundation for the concept
  • You outline possible solutions and create prototypes in different levels of detail – on paper as well as digitally, from macro to micro interaction design
  • While doing so it is quite natural for you to hold up an ongoing communication with both customers and colleagues
  • You understand UX as a comprehensive concept, always baring the entire design process in mind and thinking across project stages and disciplines
  • You are responsible for the quality assurance in every project phase, you continuously communicate with designers and developers, reviewing their work in order to guarantee an optimal user experience
  • You proactively generate visions, innovations and emotions for the client and press ahead with the project
  • You convincingly present ideas and solutions and lead workshops with clients

Your Profile

  • You are experienced in the client-centered and user-centered design of products and solutions across platforms
  • You are a team player and enjoy developing concepts together on a white board or flip chart – but also, you are good at working independently and on your own in a structured and analytical way
  • You are creative in finding solutions and inspire with fresh ideas
  • You see complex problems as a challenge and are passionate about working towards the goal of developing clearly structured products
  • You are quick in switching from the big picture to the smallest detail, from a problem to a solution, from a holistic to a focused approach and vice versa
  • You master common tools such as Balsamiq, Axure, Illustrator and/or Photoshop
  • You have a basic understanding of software development processes and are familiar with terms such as SCRUM (But), Continuous Integration, sprints and user stories
  • Experience in project management would also be appreciated

Further Prerequisites

  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in computer science, psychology, design or related fields
  • Work experience appreciated
  • If possible, meaningful work samples (interaction concepts, wireframes or other documentation)

Benefits

Are you interested in working with us? We are glad to hear that. At Centigrade we work on projects that inspire both us and our customers and are valuable for both sides. As a member of our team you can get involved in topics you are really interested in. Here is what you can expect from us:

  • A welcoming and creative working atmosphere
  • Awareness for a healthy work-life-balance as well as 100 percent overtime and travel time compensation
  • Varying tasks and individual development
  • Flexible working hours
  • Open communication and constructive feedback in a qualified, interdisciplinary team
  • Salary in-line with industry standards as well as non-cash benefits
  • Exciting projects in different industries with various clients: From small business clients to internationally operating corporations
  • Small, project-specific teams and flat hierarchies
  • Further education, for example by participating in conferences
  • Free drinks
  • An exchange of experience and expertise between colleagues in our weekly insight sessions
  • Ergonomic workstations
  • Boxes full of Lego as well as the opportunity to try new digital gadgets
  • A dog – unfortunately only in Saarbrücken ;)
  • You miss something? We will welcome suggestions from you as an employee.
