Senior UX Designer of New Things

Jere Ollanketo

We are looking for an experienced UX designer with a visual eye who wants to make an impact.

As a consultant in New Things, you will be helping clients build their digital products from the ground up and be at the core of their business.

We need you to be a person who gets excited about problem solving in the digital space and a self starter, who wants to be a part of building new things. 

Any interest in building a fresh new consultancy is highly appreciated too, as we are a company built by its employees to look like home to us. 

Who are New Things and what can we offer you?

New Things Company is a part of two bigger ecosystems of Reaktor Fusion and the Witted Megacorp. We have the agility and community of a small company but all the support and upsides of a bigger group.

We are a small consultancy saturated with knowhow in the digital domain. We aim at helping our clients up their digital game and raise their digital maturity level. Our projects are often the most interesting, but also the most challenging.  

We offer a work environment where we have self organized teams and no hierarchy. Our consultants have the final say in the projects and sales. This means there will be minimal instruction and maximum trust and freedom in your work that allows you to follow your ambitions and make an actual impact. You will also have a strong say in the company's internal policies. Taking part in company improvement projects and being an active member in our community is encouraged but not required. You can take part as much or as little as you personally feel comfortable.

Our consultants' well-being is our priority. You will be a part of a close knit, supportive community with organized training and courses, events, an empathic back office team and a comprehensive benefits package. 

What you need to be happy and succeed in New Things projects: 

  • Work experience in designing digital products and services. Experience in Service Design in the digital domain is highly valued.

  • Efficient communication skills. The ability to verbalize complex and abstract things in a clear manner is considered a great advantage. Fluent English is important in this position. We consider fluent Finnish a strong asset and if you are fluent in Swedish too we consider you a polyglot superstar.

  • Experience in facilitating workshops and research.

  • Ability to translate client needs into concepts and user interfaces.

  • Experience in the proper tools e.g. Figma, Miro, Adobe software, etc.

  • Experience in crafting and utilizing Design Systems and working with developers.

  • The ability to approach challenges and people with curiosity and empathy. 

  • Self-organization skills and a history of initiative taking. 

  • Necessary permits to work in Finland and preferably living in the Helsinki area.

We don’t expect you to be a seasoned pro in all of the above. Accepting that people have their unique points of strength is in the fabric of our culture. 

The Process: 

  1. Intro meeting, meet your future colleagues! You will meet people from our recruitment team and one of our consultants. 

  2. Second meeting. You will meet with two designers for a longer, in depth meeting where the discussion topics are in the content of the work. 

  3. Offer.
