Your job

Extraordinary user experiences change the lives of our clients, the lives of their clients and helps us

contribute to a better (digital) world. We are looking for a passionate UX expert that wants to take on this challenge and join our Accenture Song family.

Our UX expert is a strategic UX designer, a service designer with strong UX affinity or a conceptual UX/UI designer who goes beyond the craft of design. You will be looking at the bigger picture of desirability (people), feasibility (technology) and viability (business) of design. You will be working on design projects that range from more service design focused (conception of future services) to delivery focused (creation of digital products).

Depending on your experience level, your mission can encompass the following:

Conceptualize human-centered User Experiences: Uncover user needs through research, develop deep insights, generate concepts and craft how people will interact with the products and services we design.

  • Collect and assimilate customer data to guide design
  • Setup and conduct user research and perform usability testing
  • Analyse quantitative and qualitative user studies
  • Synthesise data from multiple sources to find strategic opportunities and recommend innovative solutions
  • Illustrate design ideas using storyboards, wireframes, process flows, and sitemaps
  • Create the information architecture for user experiences
  • Apply design thinking methodologies where needed

Align business objectives with user’s interests: Bring the users’ interests to the table and align with organisation objectives to facilitate strategic, human-centred decision-making.

  • Able to set up co-creation workshops that unite forces and give stakeholders a clear sense of direction. Help them throughout the design validation process
  • Engage with clients and stakeholders, clearly articulating end-user needs and incorporating them into design solutions

Manage UX deliverables: Be the gatekeeper for the UX from the start of the project until development and beyond.

  • Translate insights created from studies and client input into deliverables (wireframes, user flows, sketches, prototypes, interaction specifications)
  • Manage UX project deliverables and outcomes together with an interdisciplinary team of experts

Also, we know this is tricky, but try to avoid the confidence gap. You don't have to match all the listed requirements exactly to be considered for this role.
