IPsoft, Inc. User Experience Designer in Amsterdam, Netherlands

User Experience designers work collaboratively as a key part of our UX team to identify specific user/client needs and engage in ideating/evaluating initial concepts for how to apply IPsoft’s artificial intelligent agent Amelia.

Designers are expected to consider the project from a high level and how it fits in to an overall service, but also consider the fine details of user interface design across devices, and flows to help users achieve their goals. The role of a visual designer is to approach each project with a focus on interpreting/developing the client’s existing experiences into an engaging AI driven user experience. Designers must be able to apply and communicate solid rationale as part of their creative process and at all times execute to the highest standards.

UX Designers are responsible for the conceptual development, direction and delivery of visual design of the interface that Amelia dynamically controls; including iconography, responsive layouts, data visualization, information design, and typography. They possess excellent hands on visual design skills with a strong sense of graphic, web and native app design, and a high level of understanding of visual solutions that work across all devices, (a mobile first approach). They contribute to the overall experience design aspect of projects and pitches, and have an appreciation of delightful CX design. The Visual Designer can communicate effectively, clearly articulate ideas and possess a commercial understanding and awareness.

Designing corporate identities, logos, logotype, illustrations, iconography, print and marketing brochures a huge plus.
