UX Designer

Full-Time Anywhere

Diwala is looking for a UX Designer to be hands-on in product development with a focus on our users. We need you who have great knowledge of inclusive interaction design to join us in making our services helpful, exciting, intuitive, cohesive, and beautiful.

So… what do we do?

We create digital solutions for identifying and verifying talent. Our vision is to infuse the global skill market with trust and transparency – to incentivize growth and independence. Our mission is to provide a digital proof of skills for talent around the world. No little task – we know! But we have a lot of fun doing it.

We work from anywhere, always.

In Diwala we work from wherever we want, and have done so for years. A lot of companies are now opening their eyes to remote working and although it is not for everyone, it suits us perfectly. As a designer in Diwala you will be able to meet colleagues physically if you are based in Kampala, Nairobi, Oslo or Colombo but our process is optimized for remote work. Don’t worry – we make sure to get to know each other and have a coffee-chat from a distance ☕️or company trips.

Being a remote/distributed company means we need to stay innovative in gathering user insights, despite not always being able to meet them physically. We hold digital workshops and find smart solutions for insight and understanding, to build the best product we can!

Stuff we do as designers in Diwala:

  • User- and market research
  • Journey mapping
  • Sketching
  • Prototypes in all forms
  • Develop our style guide & component library
  • Graphics and illustrations
  • Testing
  • Workshop facilitation

Your main tasks will revolve around user research, ideating with the team, prototyping (from mockups to wireframes and testable prototypes) and collaborating with our amazing team of developers. As a team we set vision and strategy, and we want you who are eager to contribute with your ideas and perspective.

As a startup we are always in a need for speed, and we hope that is something you enjoy as much as we do. We keep the ball rolling, but we never forget to check in with our users and make sure we are building the right thing, and building it right.
