Start from scratch
You will join the team in its early stages, meaning that you are part of the team that defines how the product should be nearly from scratch and what tools should be used based on best practices and your experience.
Along with data scientists, neuroscientists, other designers, user researchers and front end developers among others you will work to create new services and have a direct impact on the success of the product. People in our team are from diverse backgrounds as Finland, Holland, US, Russia, Serbia, Greece, Spain and Venezuela and we normally talk in english (or spanish). We try to keep our processes as light as possible and apply lean startup and lean UX. No long reports or long requirements lists.
While working in a team, you will be part of a community of over 50 designers and user researchers in Telefonica Innovation who are involved in projects like Firefox OS, Tokbox, ElBulli, ElevenPaths and Movistar TV.
On the beach
Our offices are literally on the beach in Barcelona and the views across the city and the see are great. Barcelona is known for its good food, architecture and weather.
Visa & relocation support
As most of us are not from Spain, we know that some help is needed with moving and getting a Visa. We will support you with that process (and your family).
We are looking for people with 5+ years experience in creating digital services and products from flows to visuals. While the focus at the start will be delivering world class mobile experiences, you should be passionate about designing interactions beyond the screen.
As we are testing (remotely) in various countries, good written and spoken level of english is required, spanish, portuguese and german is a plus.
