reMarkable is a Norwegian technology company developing products that help people think better. Although being such a new and young company, we have already had a substantial increase in sales and revenue as well as in people, currently counting over 200 employees. After a very successful launch of our second-generation paper tablet, which, among other things, has been named TIME's "100 Best Innovations of 2020", we now face challenges and opportunities in the global arena.
We are now looking for a skilled and experienced lead concept developer. You will be given the opportunity to influence all the steps needed to create a product used by hundreds of thousands of customers worldwide, and will play an important role in our ambitious growth and product development plans to achieve our goals - to help people worldwide think better - Better Thinking.
About the role
As a lead concept developer, you will help us shape the digital product development at reMarkable. You will be given the opportunity to work with improving our existing products and services, as well as taking part in developing our new products and services. You will also play a central role in shaping the concept development field of study at reMarkable as well as the UX design team, which will be your “home”. We have ambitions to keep growing, both in size and revenue, meaning that it will be natural for you to have a personnel manager role for a team of concept developers. In this role, we are concerned about a good balance between manager tasks and project work. Your tasks will range from exploration, early concept work, development of new features, the experience between hardware and software, and partake in projects in other areas of the organization. As a lead concept developer at reMarkable, there is a great opportunity to influence both product development, and last but not least - you have a great opportunity to influence your role and everyday life.
Who you are
Your background is UX designer, but have experience and expertise in concept development and leading cross functional teams in creative processes. Your “home” at reMarkable will be in the UX design team in the Design department. You are also comfortable working as a UX designer if needed. Having experience with concept development for physical products combined with software, service design, or tangible interaction is considered an advantage.
These are some characteristics we are looking for in the new UX designer:
Have more than three years of higher education, five years of experience, and consider yourself a professional with deep knowledge of the concept development field of study.
You are skilled and confident when it comes to the subject of concept development - be it the design, process, or role.
You thrive in the role of leading creative processes and including multidisciplinary participants in the process.
You enjoy making intuitive solutions with a clear sender.
As a person, we hope you:
Are proactive and take responsibility where needed.
Are self-going and take responsibility where needed. You have professional experience, relevant experience is preferred, and the ability to lead others in a team.
Have good communication skills. Both Norwegian and English, written and oral.
Are sociable and like hanging out with your colleagues.
When you work at reMarkable, you get:
The opportunity to work in skilled interdisciplinary teams and in an environment capable of solving complex problems within hardware and software, marketing in a global arena, strategy, management, CRM, and content management, to mention a few.
Rewarding and challenging tasks and the results
Opportunity to get involved in all aspects of creating a technological hardware and software product, used by hundreds of thousands of users worldwide.
Career opportunities that focus on professional and personal development in a fast-growing company, where skilled professionals and managers are crucial for our success.
A work environment that takes care of each other and a culture that focuses on socializing in the form of game nights, training groups, theme parties, and so on.
This has resulted in a great work environment that offers motivation, joy, and a culture built on our values; curiosity, dedication, and generosity. In addition to competitive terms, we offer the opportunity to buy shares at an employee price and six week holiday annually.
