UX designer for the solar revolution (Oslo)

How do you like the idea of being the UX designer in a startup substantially helping the climate challenge? A startup growing fast and expanding throughout the European market, mentioned in Forbes as well as showing presence in conferences such as the Ignite 2019 energy conference.

We are looking for that UX designer.

We offer the unique opportunities of a scaling company, a skilled and passionate team as well as a job with a deep sense of purpose. You will have great opportunities to grow both in your design leadership and in your craft. You will be part of an autonomous team with continuous and fast paced development. We value insight and inclusion, and believe iterations make perfection.

"We aren't your typical energy utility sector crowd but ecommerce professionals with a vision that solar panels and installation services should be sold online both cost effectively and with as much ease as a television set or a pair of jeans."

- Andreas Thorsheim, CEO

Who we believe you are

You have an urge to explore, investigate and drive the company in the future with the power of design. You know what is good content and also have a good eye for what is an inspiring user experience throughout the service touchpoints.

You know the potential of what good design can do for customers as well as business. You want to understand the business, get to know our customers and involve users to create awesome products.

We imagine you have more than 4 years of experience, but being "senior" is more about attitude than number of years. Your story will show us that you are an inspiring UX designer who can take an important role.

What you will do

We believe in the strength of depth and diversity. We want to be challenged and that you pull us in new directions. You will work with the experience of our digital products, as well as evangelize design culture in the company. Together with the product and engineering managers, you will push the company to its potential, across Europe.

Responsibilities

  • Work with customers, installers and colleagues to gain and spread insights and understanding.

  • Together with an UI designer create designs and concepts for all our products; from the sales channel, Otovo app, recurring services to our installer platform.

Special abilities

We are a young company and need people to help where it is needed. While we are looking for allrounders, some special skills are appreciated. Perhaps you have one or two of these?

  • Enjoys communicating design and design decisions

  • UX management and service design

  • Design for different cultures

  • Strong in both UX and visual design

  • Usability ambassador

The challenge

“Over the next five years, we fully expect Europe to surpass the United States in terms of solar installations. From a residential solar installation standpoint, we are just at the start of the journey and expect five million homes to go solar in the next five years.”

- Andreas Thorsheim, CEO

Perks

We believe being part of growing a company putting sustainable energy into every home is the best possible perk. We also offer great pension, personal insurances as well as a conference budget and great room for self development. More reasons to join us.
