We are looking for the Shigeru Miyamoto of digital services, someone who is as passionate about designing elegant user experiences, as using human-centered design and systems thinking to solve complex problems.
You’re obsessed with all things visual, and love combining your interest in people and their needs, with your ability to make things beautiful, engaging and fun.
We think you might be from a design consultancy, digital product company or gaming design studio and wondering “what’s next?”. You have been doing a form of in-depth interaction design and implementation for 4-6 years and you’re curious about the opportunity to play a leading role on a multi-disciplinary design team driving innovation in the Singapore government.
The team you will be joining:
The Experience Strategy & Design (ESD) team was formed to help drive an ‘outside-in’ approach to the development of the next generation of government services. Made up of researchers, experience strategists, interaction designers, service and environment specialists, visual and content designers, the team leads user research, product conceptualisation and prototyping on key strategic initiatives for the Government Digital Services (GDS) group. Our model is to bring together domain & policy experts, data scientists, designers, product managers and engineers, to define the right problems to solve, identify opportunities to make an impact, and to experiment with bold and disruptive ideas.
What to expect:
At ESD we believe that Visual Interaction Designers make their greatest impact when they work along the intersection of caring about what people need, uncovering what technology can do and making simple, engaging experiences. In addition, they do so with an experimental mindset, continuously prototyping, testing and learning about why something is working or not.
We’re looking for Designers who want to get their hands dirty throughout the entire design process. To be involved in everything from going in the field, to building empathy for users’ needs first-hand, to bringing insights to life through compelling stories and visual experiences, as well as creating interactive experiences and user interfaces of all kinds.
We work in an extremely collaborative environment, alongside other teams of designers, developers, data scientists, domain experts and policy folks with diverse backgrounds and perspectives. It’s important that you are always engaging the outside world for inspiration, spotting opportunities for innovation and sharing what excites you with the broader community.
