Description

XpertSea’s mission is to develop technologies that transform aquaculture into a modern, efficient and sustainable source of food for our planet. Through research and development of advanced technologies such as AI and computer vision, we’re increasing the availability of quality food, reducing the environmental impact of food production, and improving profitability across the aquaculture food chain.

Product Designers are skilled user experienced professionals. You will focus on information architecture, user flow design, interaction design, and user research on medium to large-sized projects. You will independently manage your projects, but work closely with our design product lead. You will work with Agile sprint teams championing human-centred design and help shape design practices that work best with Agile Methods.

  • Conceptualize and implement solutions that solve core user challenges, achieve business objectives, and conform to technology capabilities.
  • Create and validate new product prototypes based on user feedback, testing, field experimentation, and research.
  • Design, document and hand-off high-fidelity UI and UX specs to clearly communicate requirements to engineers.
  • Proactively seek feedback and input from those involved in the projects.
  • Stay current on UX best practices, specifically for mobile and emerging markets, and apply your design thinking to other areas of the platform and business.
