We’re excited to announce that our design team is expanding.
If you want your work to have global impact we want to hear about your vision. We work on projects ranging from expanding vaccination coverage to infrastructure monitoring that helps build schools. You can learn more about these projects here.
User experience design requires collaboration between designers, engineers, the business and users, to create the most useful and usable products.
We believe that “There are no problems we cannot solve together, and very few that we can solve by ourselves”.
We’ve prepared a guide with steps of how you can join Acasus.
1. FIRST CONVERSATION
The first step is a quick phone conversation to assess if Acasus is a good fit for you. This phone conversation will consist of basic questions regarding your current employment and position you’re interested in. If it looks like we have a position that will meet your expectations, we will set up a meeting with our Design Lead.
- Do we have a position on our team that would meet your expectations and experience?
- When would you be able to start working with Acasus?
- Which stream (web or mobile) interests you most?
2. MEET OUR DESIGN LEAD
In the second step we set up a face-to-face meeting with our Lead Designer, Vasiliki.
This conversation focuses on understanding the next step in your career and getting a deeper understanding of your experience. Vasiliki normally focuses on the areas that interest you and how you would like to grow with Acasus.
We also take this opportunity to answer any questions you might have about Acasus and the work that we do.
- What are the next steps in your career?
- What have you done in the past to solve challenges when they’ve arisen?
- What questions do you have about Acasus?
3. DESIGN CHALLENGE
The next step is to choose a successful mobile app that particularly interests you, find an issue and suggest a design solution.
There is no time limit - whether you finish in one day or one week is entirely up to you.
Share your design mockups and thought process. Our lead designer will assess the quality of the solution and its complexity. Successfully completing this penultimate step will lead to a team talk.
"At the core of Acasus is a mission to find solvable problems and help provide the solution. In some ways this step is a technical version of our core mission. Can you identify a UX/UI issue in a project and fix it?"
This procedure is designed to let you work at your own pace and let you demonstrate what you believe are your strongest skills.
- Can you find an interesting challenge in a UX project and help solve it?
- What strategy would you take to help solve new, unexpected challenges?
4. TEAM TALK
In the final step we would like to hear more about the solution you provided in the previous task in a small discussion with Vasiliki. You will meet at least one additional member of your future team. We believe in involving everyone at Acasus in the process for helping with team expansion. These conversations are an excellent opportunity to ask any remaining team or design-focused questions.
- What was the reason for choosing that particular mobile app and issue?
- What made this challenge interesting for you?
- How would you evaluate people interested in joining our team?
