Job Description


Designer | PUSHCODE

We are looking for a Designer for PUSHCODE, a service that makes it easy to implement "web push notifications".

The development of PUSHCODE was selected for a “Monozukuri grant”, and through joint development with VMware Tanzu Labs, we have an environment that provides hands-on experience with Lean Startup principles and Extreme Programming (XP) methodology.

[ PUSHCODE ] https://www.pushcode.jp

Designers start by defining the "personas" in product development, conduct user interviews, share the learnings with the team, and create prototypes to test the assumptions that need to be tested next.

We believe that one of the most important roles of a designer is to find the "issues that really exist" for the "users that really exist". Once those two things are found, you share them with your team, and then you develop together, working towards the same goal.

[ Area of Responsibility and Job Description ]

◆User Research
You will design and execute a series of user research, from defining personas to conducting interviews, analyzing the results and sharing them. You will learn systematic user research techniques and tools, and contribute to the success of the product through the practice.

◆UI Design
You will design easy-to-use UI that takes user behavior into account. You will be responsible for creating designs that will be implemented in the product, from designing wireframes and screen transitions. You will also continue to improve the design by making adjustments based on user feedback.

★The PUSHCODE team is multinational, and we develop in English. We are looking for people who respect different countries and cultures, diverse personalities and values, and enjoy working together.
