ZAGENO is looking for a Senior UX/UI Designer to drive the design of our successful online biotech marketplace, zageno.com.

We are accepting candidates from anywhere and we will take care of relocation costs for the successful hire. Our company language is English.

Our marketplace is helping thousands of scientists from all around the world to get critical products for their research more reliably, faster and cheaper. We really care deeply about creating the best customer experience and delivering top customer satisfaction.

We are growing fast: in size, revenue, and team. We are at the point now where our initial design guidelines are no longer enough: we need you to kick start our next level of design, striking the perfect balance between UX and UI - erring on the side of UX if a tough call has to be made.


You are the right person for the job if:

  • You are a "Web Designer" as per https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_design. Web design is not just about web UI, but also about typography, usability, information architecture, etc...

  • Usability is your forte. You can put yourself in our customers' shoes and design, drive and improve a great experience from a UX point of view

  • You can get designs done: it's not just about the idea of the improvement, but also about turning something abstract into a well designed page to pass over to our tech team

  • You can turn requirements from different teams (CEO, marketing, scientists, ...) into a beautifully designed product or feature, delivered as a set of pages, wireframes or prototypes

  • You communicate effectively with tech teams, delivering designs that can be easily implemented (we currently use Balsamiq, Zeplin and Sketch, but we are open to any other tool)


Last, but not least, you are passionate and motivated about what you do and *why* you do it.

This is not just a standard recruiting sales line.

We worked really hard to build a very driven team, who works together to build a better product for all the scientists out there. Not for their own interest, not for their own team’s interest, but for the company's interest.

This is key in a successful company like ours.


What you'll find at ZAGENO:

 

  • An English speaking and welcoming international team of ~25 people from more than 15 countries

  • The possibility to work together with some of the most talented minds in Business, IT, Marketing, and Science

  • The opportunity to grow your role and to develop a career with the company

  • An amazing and spacious office in Zeughofstrasse, in the center of Kreuzberg

  • The usual cool stuff: free drinks, coffee - proper coffee! - team events, etc.
