Have you ever seen doctors still using pagers in hospitals? Perhaps even wondered why such antiquated technology is still being used in life saving situations? Well, so did we.

Main purpose of the job

As Senior UX Designer, you will lead and contribute to all parts of the internal Product Design process: from roadmap prioritization, discovery, research & validation to prototyping, UI and documentation. You will be responsible for building a clean and effective user experience for our customers.

You will specialize in distilling feedback, data and complex technical requirements into simple and effortless experiences for our customers. You will advocate for these customers with high levels of user empathy, while simultaneously understanding the diverse goals and required effort of your teammates. With an experimental mindset, you will be comfortable nimbly testing & measuring a variety of solutions, doubling down on what works and moving on from what doesn't. Working closely with the Product Team, you will objectively balance qualitative and quantitative insights (combined with UX best practices) to make informed decisions about what to build next. You will push the state-of-the-art and challenge convention with every creation.

What is the challenge for UX Design?

During the last year our main focus was to deliver loads of new code to meet our business goals.

We are now ready to establish a solid UX function in-house to provide high quality UX research and insights to feed into our product roadmap and future development work – ultimately enabling us to produce better quality products that delight our customers and end users.

To be successful in this role, you'll need:

Be a “do-er” – proactive and a quick worker. You need to be able to get the balance between attention to detail (to ensure the development output meets the designs) with quick turnaround and as such, you need to be pragmatic based on the type of work and urgency of it. You also need to be a “self-starter” – including flexibility to travel to various customers in Switzerland.

Have a proven experience designing modern SaaS products embracing “User Centered Design” principles and methodologies.

Be able to present low and high fidelity designs in an effective manner to both internal and external stakeholders.

Demonstrated ability to effectively partner with and communicate to stakeholders, product managers and engineering team members. Expert in connecting the dots between business needs (Design Thinking), technology, UX/UI design, copywriting and passion for innovation.

Foundational experience (2-4 years) with techniques in qualitative and qualitative research. Familiarity with various user research tools. Ability to ask, as well as answer, meaningful and impactful questions.

Expert knowledge in usability testing principles and methodologies. Good knowledge of design tools. Has solid working understanding of Mobile/tablet SDKs HTML, JavaScript, and CSS design capabilities.

Self-organization and documentation keeping is a key, since we are responsible for the whole pipeline. From conception, through visualization to delivery.

You are a curious, creative, confident and energetic team-player. You are happy to promote your ideas within the group, and listen to others as we work to build a consensus on the best approach. We don’t expect any particular technical skillset beyond the norm, but want to hear about what you’ve got and what you want to do. You don’t mind getting your hands dirty and are ready to join in and get the job done.

Fluent in English and German. Italian or /and French is a plus.


The biggest perk is that you’ll be working on a game-changing product, in an established industry ripe for disruption, with motivated, amicable people, and in the process you’ll be making a positive impact on the lives of thousands of people

Stock: ownership in a fast growing company- commensurate to your experience and expertise

Prime office location & flexibility: office in prime location in Zurich and work from home options

Continuous learning: Sponsorship of meetup and conference attendance

The chance to contribute to an upbeat, fully engaged culture.

Unlimited coffee :)
