UI / UX Designer (Mobile focused)

Looking for a challenge with purpose & meaning? We need a UX designer to help us build an emotionally engaging personal growth app that aims to bring people together to help them live meaningful lives

29k are looking for a designer to join our team. We need you to help us design an emotionally engaging personal growth experience for mobile devices. Please send your application in English.


What we believe

At 29k we believe that individuals have the capacity to change the world for the better. If we can help people to live more meaningful lives we strongly believe that in turn they will improve the world through their actions. To achieve this ambitious goal, we're developing an app that combines proven psychology-based exercises with cultivating human connection through live video sharing.

Who we are

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

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

Product development stage

After some time spent in the product discovery phase, we are now in the process of scaling up the team to begin building the product whilst also continuing further product discovery. It's for this reason that we need an experienced mobile UX designer to help us get the product to a soft launch and beyond.

What we're looking for

We’re looking for someone to add world class design to our 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 UX designer, you’ll be enabling us to move fast and sustainably on our product. Your responsibilities will include:

- Leading the work to take our user experience and visual design to the next level

- Designing usable, engaging user experiences in a fast paced environment (we're big fans of iterative design and prefer whiteboard sketches over heavy interaction specifications)

- 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 your ideas to ensure our user experience is usable & valuable

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 one 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 an interest in personal growth as well.

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

- Experienced with sketch, our preferred tool for design

- At least an interest in user testing

- A competent graphic designer

- Comfortable with website design

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