Do you want to play a central role in rolling out the strategic Design-Thinking capability at one of the largest renewable energy companies in the world?

Join us and become Design-Thinking Specialist in the UX Design Team where you’ll be responsible for internalising and maturing a Design-Thinking practice which we’ve identified as a key to our Digitalisation Vision. The organisation has a declared ambition of setting new standards for the customer experience in the renewable energy sector. To achieve that, we’re well underway building our enterprise UX and Design-Thinking team in Denmark, where we live out our passion for customer experience, product and service innovation and design with the end user in mind. In this role, you’ll facilitate digital design thinking at a broad level, including user-centric product definition projects, bringing the user into business innovation projects and providing a user focus for technology innovation projects.

Your key tasks will be to

  • work in cross-functional agile projects, supported by your UX and Design-Thinking colleagues
  • collaborate with all our company business and development areas to facilitate, define and roll out a new level of user centricity and help define new digital experiences while tying strong links from UX Design to the rest of the organisation
  • act as the ‘voice of the customer and the user’ within the project teams and agile release trains, ensuring appropriate research and design support for the business solutions
  • plan, conduct and lead client design sprints, workshops and project meetings
  • develop new effective and simplified design-thinking tools for the renewable energy sector. 

Furthermore, you’ll conduct user research, including various forms of in-person and remote research and validation, and you’ll advise clients of current UX/DT methodologies, while maintaining flexibility and adapting to their methods. The work targets all of the organisation’s markets across the world.
Your competences include that you

  • have extensive professional experience in the design-thinking field
  • have demonstrated significant hands-on skills within planning, organising and implementing design sprints in cross-functional enterprise teams
  • have a master’s degree or similar in design, business innovation or in the technical field
  • have demonstrated that you can take ownership, driving understanding and delivering solutions that exceed expectations with strong storytelling skills
  • have strong skills within the digital user-centric design areas, including user journeys, user stories, wireframes, storyboards, sitemaps and screen flows.

Moreover, you consistently pay attention to detail in your deliverables and display confidence in your ability to present and clearly articulate your design decisions. Finally, you have strong relationship skills with stakeholders at all levels, speak and write English fluently and thrive in an international environment.
