Main purpose of the job

As a UX Designer at CarePay you are part of the UX Chapter and work closely with product owners and development teams to create and improve what the platform has to offer its end users. You are part of multidisciplinary teams including UX’ers, software engineers, cloud engineers, business analysts and business owners. As a UX Designer you take ownership of the behaviour, interaction and look and feel of your focus area within the platform and take pride in achieving results.

Your main task is to create solutions that are aligned with business objectives, the technical implications and the needs of the end users. You have a high level of empathy and a passion for understanding the user. You are not reluctant to ask hard questions to understand the why of a situation and know the difference between what people say they want and what they actually need.

You will be working with a team of UX designers to help you progress in your craft, share knowledge and with whom you will actively contribute to the design library, guidelines and patterns across the platform. You seek alignment when needed, but can work independently to explore new opportunities and solutions.
