OfferZen Digital Product Designer Jobs in South Africa

The Opportunity

  • Being a product designer on an OfferZen squad isn’t any old design job.

  • You'll be part of the process of deciding what gets done.

  • You’ll be working alongside your squad’s product manager and the lead developer to discover and decide on the future of the user experience on OfferZen.

  • They’ll want to hear your advice, and they’ll want you to back it up!

  • You’ll need to use a wide range of user-centred design techniques, and a few service design skills too.

  • You’ll need to tackle everything from user testing and journey mapping to sketching workshops and product analytics.

  • But don’t worry, there’s super solid mentorship where you need it. You’ll need to deliver detailed flow and UI documentation to the dev team too, and use or extend our design system on the way.

  • But you don't need to create glamorous new visuals for the brand or UI.

  • It's up to you to decide if the job's done right.

  • You'll look after your missions from discovery through to delivery, gathering lots of feedback on the way.

  • But it'll be up to you to make sure they're done right.

  • It’s a Silicon-Valley-level role, right here in Cape Town: Smart colleagues, an inspiring goal, lots of autonomy and a focus on delivering a world class product, one mission at a time.

    What you’ll do

  • We take human-centred design very seriously here.

  • You’ll need to work with customers, data and stakeholders and create and test prototypes to make insanely great user experiences with limited resources.

  • Analyse usage and performance data to identify focus areas

  • Conduct user research to gain insights into user needs and issues

  • Work with your product manager and lead developer to discover what to build

  • Help the squad to envision great solutions to the problems you’re tackling

  • Validate hypotheses through prototyping and user testing sessions

  • Design UX flow, and UI detail that works seamlessly for our customers and that fits with the OfferZen design system

  • Work with your squad to deliver, measure and iterate on solutions.
    What you’ll need

  • More than 4 years experience in UX Design.

  • Diploma or university degree (degree in design or psychology is a bonus).

  • Ability to work both autonomously, and in a small team to solve complex problems.

  • Experience using UX methods such as customer interviews, user journey mapping, problem statements, ideation workshops, sketching, prototyping and user testing.

  • Knowledge of relevant design tools, such as Figma, or Axure RP.

  • Some experience in working with analytics to understand your users' pain points and
    their response to your new software.

  • An obsession for high quality, high cadence work in close collaboration with software delivery teams.

  • Unlimited curiosity about everything, including how software gets built.

  • A fearless personality, to make sure that design is done right in your team.

  • Extra bonus for having experience in front-end development.

    What it’s like to work here

  • We are a fun-loving and very driven team of 90+ people. The Product Group (including tech, product and design) is doubling in size this year. We have big plans!

  • We're dedicated to authenticity. We treat people as people, caring personally and speaking openly.

  • We foster low-ego behaviour - we own our mistakes as well as our victories. We're never about blame.

  • We're always about honesty, learning and continuous improvement. We ensure lots of transparency and visibility. From OKRs and strategy to analytics and company performance numbers, it's all available for you to see and understand.

  • We're passionate about learning and levelling up. Everyone at OfferZen strives for a growth mindset.

  • We read books, listen to podcasts, share expertise obsessively, then take on hard challenges with smart guidance and support. When things go wrong, we look for the learning and how to improve.

  • We're good at remote. We have office space in Cape Town and Amsterdam but we're working remotely most of the time. For this role, we need someone located in South Africa.

  • It's more fun to be near our Cape Town hub office, but we have all the tooling and processes to operate very effectively remotely.

  • We also offer 20 days of leave a year which are available to use from the time you start.

  • We love to do fun stuff together including 6-monthly offsite sleep-over events, and monthly experiences like games nights, or even Sumo wrestling events!

  • There's a running club, a hiking club, a book club, two D&D campaigns... And now we're remote we're experimenting with online games, and online escape rooms.
