As a Data UX designer, you will be a member of the UX Design discipline team within Product & Tech, while your day to day role will be as the UX designer embedded with the talented Data Platform Insight team. The Data & Insight team ensures that Kolonial.no as an organization gets maximum value (learning, insight, informed decision-making, forecasting) out of its data. The Data UX designer’s role is to ensure that the Insight team works effectively on building data products that actually serve the original need and that they are of the highest-quality with respect to ease of use, clarity, and impact.
While we are no longer a start-up but a “scale-up”, Kolonial.no is an organization that moves quickly and likes to change things often. All designers do a little of everything, and we will welcome (and expect!) you to identify new opportunities for how design can contribute to a better customer experience and operational excellence, and jump on them.
We believe that UX design crossed with Data & Insight can push us to entirely new levels, and Kolonial.no can lead the way in showing how UX can do for data in 2020 what it has done for code over the last 20 years.
- Lead the design work on improving the user-friendliness of Kolonial.no internal data and insight products (machine learning models, reports, dashboards, graphs, tables).
- UX research on the insight needs of internal stakeholders, mapping out the problems Data & Insight works with into a singular set of services.
- Build and prototype data visualizations directly in our data system (Looker).
- Coach the Data & Insight team how to use a user-centric approach to the creation of its data services and products.
- Own the design and development of a holistic design system for all information design within Kolonial.no.
- Strengthen the connection between the Data & Insight and UX Design teams. How might we combine qualitative and quantitative data for deeper and stronger insights? How might we use data to evaluate design decisions?
- Contribute to building data literacy throughout Kolonial.no, leveraging a designer’s ability to present clearly and tell stories.
- Be an active member of our UX Design team, through sparring and design team sessions.
