TL;DR:

We are looking for an experienced, accurate and highly creative Interaction Designer that lives to tweak & tune user flows and wires. As our Interaction Designer, you will be working directly with our Product Design Lead and Visual Designer on the optimization of our new cross-platform gaming portal and related products.

You will also interact (pun intended) a lot with our developers, analysts and the rest of our talented technical, business and game team. Do you love getting and processing feedback from tons of real users? And do you always fight for the best user experience – no matter what? Then please reach out and send us a message with your Interaction Design / UX portfolio!

Your challenge:

  • Create process flows, user stories, wireframes, prototypes and mockups for design solutions that our users can understand easily
  • Continuously iterate and improve the products of the Poki platform: mainly our web portal and publishing solution.
  • Create prototypes and test with users to gain actionable insights at an early stage
  • Collect and analyse user behaviour through on- and offline experiments (e.g. A/B testing, benchmark studies, analytic tools, and surveys)
