Position Title: Senior Digi Physical Interaction Designer

Duration: Contract

Location: Sweden

Assignment Description

* In this role, you are responsible of designing market-leading UI and UX in the in-car HMI for the Client.

* As a Senior UI/UX Designer, you may also be asked to take on a team-leading role for internal or external projects.

* You will challenge the way our users interact with and use the car, with special focus on touch points beyond the traditional screens, and apply systems thinking to information and experience design to find new ways to engages both driver and passengers through digi-physical or physical touchpoints along a user journey.

* You will participate throughout the entire design process, from inspiration and research to building prototypes and communicating the vision for in-car digi-physical experiences.

* Together with a team, you contribute to the development, evaluation and documentation of novel, physical or digi-physical interaction concepts in the interior or exterior.

* You collaborate on designing, running, and testing new solutions through experiments and prototypes at varying levels of fidelity.

* From visual storytelling, wire framing, click-through prototypes and animations to functional interactive prototypes.

* You systematically ensure that concepts are coherent, satisfy user needs and expectations, understand user pain points as well as meeting safety and regulatory requirements, and minimize driver distraction.

* To create new opportunities, you will explore and identify focus areas for user research, selecting appropriate research methodologies, and synthesize user research results into actionable insights for iterative concept development.
