The art of making a complex tool accessible to all

As an UX Team Lead, you will act as a creative problem solver and a key player in improving the user experience for the platform. Your focus is to increase the quality of the product by facilitating the design process in cross-departmental initiatives. 

A cohesive, simple and mature user-centric experience and an engaged team are your main priorities.

A glimpse at your day-to-day:

  • Start your day by hanging out at the UX Coffee on Zoom with your team: What's new, what's old, what’s the new Miro feature? It's also time for you to share the latest update on the projects you are leading!
  • Before lunch, you have a quick call with Nicolas, VP of Product to revise the next quarter product roadmap and exchange ideas.
  • Afterwards, you take some time to finish your "UX canvas" before your new project kicks off.
  • The UX lead for Commerce LOB, Serdar, just got back from his design leadership conference and he is ready to share the insights he gained in a co-development session.
  • Time to join a planning session - you co-lead the discussion about the newest platform feature with your product manager, the development team and your fellow designers to identify the main points your team should focus on.
  • On your no-meeting afternoon, you take the opportunity to look at the user testing feedback on the latest usability prototype you produced: it's time for some iterations!
  • You eventually get a ping from one of the engineers about a design review task. Your team seeks your input: Maxime is looking for feedback on the new Data Dashboards, and Gustavo on the new animations.
  • If it’s a Thursday, at the end of the day people stay a while for the happy hour at the office, some open a beer: tomorrow you’re working from home anyway. It’s time to disconnect and enjoy some social time together!
