Why it’s worth reading this

We're exceptionally proud to be a home-grown success story. 17 years ago, we were your classic kiwi start-up that has now evolved into a successful global software solutions business.

Our talented, energetic people are the heart and soul of our business. We look after each other and foster a culture of authenticity and trust (and having a heap of fun along the way!).

What you’ll do

This role will incorporate leading the full design process from concept development through to wireframes and high-fidelity specs.

As an advocate for usability, design and innovation within Provoke and for our customers, you will ensure emerging technologies are front of mind, identifying opportunities to incorporate best current thinking into solution design.

Further tasks include :

  • Carrying out and generating insights from user research
  • Solving tricky business problems
  • Finding the balance between business and user needs
  • Collaborating with technical people to create intuitive designs within constraints
  • Creating wireframes and interactive prototypes to communicate your designs clearly
  • Carrying out usability testing to validate your designs with a range of users
  • Speaking persuasively about your design decisions
  • Effectively communicating with and positively influencing diverse stakeholders through written recommendations, roadmaps, specifications and of course your designs themselves.
  • What are we looking for?

    As someone with several years’ experience in this space, you’ll take a pragmatic approach to the commercial UX world ideally combined with a relevant tertiary qualification.

    In addition, you’ll have the ability to explore multiple design solutions to a given problem or feature to then communicate those solutions visually.

    We’re also after :

  • Someone who can relentlessly advocate for the customer, deliver exceptional results and juggle multiple priorities within a fast-
  • paced, dynamic project management environment

  • A portfolio or samples of work demonstrating great user-centred design solutions and patterns, across both desktop and mobile devices
  • The ability to rapidly prototype and create a variety of design artefacts with a deep and broad knowledge of usability principles and techniques
  • Fluency in best practices for mobile and web-based information architecture and responsive design
  • Creative and responsive interactive prototypes experience with Axure (or similar)
  • Visual design expertise demonstrated through mock-ups and style guides
  • Proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite (primarily Photoshop and Illustrator).
  • What's in it for you? For a start you’ll spend your days working with talented, energetic people who have a little pinch of zest and are the heart and soul of our business.

    We care about each other and foster a culture of innovation, authenticity and trust.

    In addition, we have some pretty neat perks that reflect our desire to look after your health and wellbeing, making life just that little bit easier.

    Combine all that with strong ties to our Wellington and Seattle offices and you’ve landed yourself a pretty enviable new role!
