Extraordinary user experiences change the lives of our clients, the lives of their clients and helps us contribute to a better (digital) world. We are looking for a passionate UX expert that wants to take on this challenge and join our Accenture Interactive family.

Depending on your experience level, your mission can encompass the following:

Conceptualize human-centered User Experiences: Uncover user needs through research, develop deep insights, generate concepts and craft how people will interact with the products and services we design. 

  • Collect and assimilate customer data to guide design.
  • Setup and conduct user research and perform usability testing.
  • Analyze quantitative and qualitative user research.
  • Synthesize data from many sources to identify strategic opportunities and recommend innovative solutions. 
  • Illustrate design ideas using storyboards, wireframes, process flows, and sitemaps. 
  • Create the information architecture for user experiences. 
  • Apply design thinking methodologies where needed. 

Align with business objectives and bring your point across: Bring the users’ interests to the table and align with business objectives in order to facilitate strategic, human-centered decision making. 

  • Able to set up co-creation workshops that unite forces and give stakeholders a clear sense of direction and helps them throughout the design validation process.
  • Engage with clients and stakeholders, clearly articulating user needs and incorporate them in design solutions. 

Manage UX deliverables: Be the gatekeeper for the UX from the start of the project until development and beyond. 

  • Translate insights created from research and client input into deliverables (wireframes, user flows, sketches, interaction specifications).
  • Manage UX project deliverables and outcomes together with an interdisciplinary team of experts. 

Also, we know this is tricky, but try to avoid the confidence gap. You don’t have to match all the listed requirements exactly to be considered for this role.
