I have an early morning interview for an IxD position at a high-growth 2 year-old startup. The company produces a physical device, as well as the software that will function across multiple devices and platform (mobile and desktop). As fas as I know, i'll be reporting directly to the VP of User Experience and working closely with the other designers / developers. The culture is what you'd expect at a startup, small intimate groups.
RPA (rpa.com) is looking for a couple of people to help with user experience design efforts alongside our existing teams. As a User Experience Designer, you will work closely with Project Managers, Creatives and Engineers through numerous stages of the product development cycle. You will be involved in all aspects of the product lifecycle, from ideation to implementation.
You will help to define the user model and user interface for new and existing projects.
Let me introduce myself I'm a Principal UX Design Expert at Vodafone Group based in London UK and I am interested about cool design agencies based in london that might work with us. What I'm looking for is an agile design agency that could deliver fast and great UX innovative concepts. Equally if your a talented designer/developer drop me a line or two about what you do. If you can send me something interesting or cool images you have delivered would be even better. Would be great to see stuff before we talk.
I've been given the chance to set up a UX department from scratch at an existing digital agency.
The agency has about 70 really good people (designers, coders, the works) many of whom are interested in UX design. And at the moment we do a bit of usability testing and the odd bit of research. But my mission is to really put the user at the center of everything we do.
Obviously I've got a lot of ideas for how I want to approach it, but basically I'm looking for advice from anyone who's done this before.
