UI Designer for Mobile

UI Designer for Mobile

We are growing our team further and 29k are now looking for a designer to join our team to help us design an emotionally engaging personal growth experience for mobile devices. 


What we believe

At 29k we believe that individuals have the capacity to change the world for the better. And if we can unleash people's ability to live more meaningful lives they in turn will improve the world through their actions.

Who we are

29k is a not-for-profit founded by the Norrsken Foundation and Ekskäret Foundation, with research partners at Karolinska and Harvard, tasked with building a free and open platform for personal development. We have a 5-year goal of improving the lives of 5 million people, and a long term goal of reaching a threshold where we see systemic change in the world.

We are a small, close-knit team of skilled and motivated people who truly believe the world can and needs to be changed for the better.

Product development stage

Right now, we have a lightweight prototype that we have been testing with users to discover where our assumptions fall down. We’re confident enough to start designing and building the features that have proven to work with users, so we’ll need someone to help take our user experience to the next level with world class UI design. We also have some puzzles still yet to be solved in the UX, so we’ll continue our product discovery process to solve the missing pieces of the puzzle.

What we're looking for

We’re looking for someone to add world class design to our existing user experience and help us solve the challenging UX puzzle of connecting strangers on a deep, personal level. This is no easy feat!

As our designer, you’ll be enabling us to move fast and sustainable on our product and your responsibilities will include:

- Taking our user experience to the next level by adding your design flair to our app

- Facilitating and participating in product discovery (e.g. Design Sprints)

- Working closely with our engineering team to ensure our design can be easily implemented

- User testing to ensure our user experience is usable & valuable

- Keeping our slide decks and marketing collateral up to date with brand guidelines

- Potentially refreshing our website to highlight more of the product

Who are you?

You love to dive into the deep end with tricky UX & Product challenges, like “how do we convince people to share their inner world with strangers?” and “how do we connect people on our platform on day 1 with few users?”. You’ve worked closely with engineers and are comfortable making trade-offs for the sake of speed to market. You’d much rather spend your days designing experiences that will go into production, rather than hypothetical pitch decks. You have experience designing mobile apps and preferably, have a passion for personal growth.

- A confident UI / UX designer, experienced with designing mobile apps

- Experienced with sketch, our preferred tool for design

- Experienced with, or at least an interest in user testing

- A competent graphic designer

- Comfortable with product discovery methods like design sprints

- Comfortable with website design

We are super excited to hear from you :-) Also - please send in your application in English, thank you!
