Job Purpose

At AVEVA we believe in product management where the product discovery process is a key to create the products that customers love. Through product discovery we want to try-out many ideas that enable us to solve customer problems well, by identifying greatness early and enabling technical and usability robustness.

Our mission statement is to “Make the best of the human expertise” and provide decision support tools that work with the user and assist with everyday decision making.  Product Design is a key to that mission. It is also key within the product discovery process aiming at addressing usability aspects and creating a great user experience.

A Product Designer will work within an empowered team of Technical Leads and Software Developers guided by Product Managers.  The team would run a series of experimentations focusing on validation of user needs, discovering new problems to solve and testing various designs that strive to create great user experience while providing customer value.  

We’re looking for an experienced Product Designer who will work alongside the Product Management and R&D teams and establish product design practices which would in future grow into a separate UX function.

• Work end-to-end starting from early ideas, designs, workflows and detailed interactions
• Work closely with the Product Team and R&D teams to research and validate the design with the user experience and value added in mind
