Senior UI/UX Designer DAZZLE ROCKS / Helsinki

PUBLISHED: December 21, 2021

Are you a passionate and self-driven person who is ready to break new ground for what will become the new norm of mobile gaming? We are looking for a seasoned Senior UI/UX Designer to join our skilled and highly effective team in Helsinki, Finland.

As a Senior UI/UX Designer, you are responsible for a 360-degree approach to creating the player experience. You consider social interactions equally as important as gameplay in order to make our MMO feel like a game a social place at the same time. As an example you will be working with chat systems, voice, messaging, notifications, emotes, forming teams, and communicating progress in the game.

You will also help to define the “feel” of the interactions, such as UI animations, editing the world, and how new content is introduced to players. You value integrity and attention to detail and you aren’t afraid to team up and communicate efficiently your work and design intent to others.

If you’re right at home in a fast-moving and growing start-up environment and being a great team collaborator is second nature to you, let’s connect!
