Job Description

Love to create? Let’s talk. 

We are SWIPE Studio Zurich. We love to create digital products that add value & spark joy.

As a part of Accenture Song, SWIPE Studio specializes in experience design, strategy and the engineering of digital products, platforms, and ecosystems. We do this in our studios in Hamburg, Berlin and Zurich, and we do it with an emphasis on mobile and native iOS and Android apps. 

Our portfolio includes companies in the mobility, automotive, lifestyle, telecom, health and public services sectors. Among many others, our clients include Audi, Europa Park, Motel One, VW, UBS, ADAC, Telefónica and various Governments.

For our Zurich-based studio, we are looking for a Design Lead (all genders).

If you have made it here, you should have answered the initial question with YES. Great. You love to create solutions that solve problems and spark joy. You have a passion for designing digital products that appeal and offer a great experience to their users. You are capable of conveying your ideas and visions verbally and visually. Additionally, you lead and support your peers to do so, too, and thus help them grow and thrive.

What you can expect from us:

  • As a part of our freshly founded and growing team in Zurich, you will experience a dynamic and people-centered culture

  • You will get to bring your ideas forward and take responsibility within our fast decision-making processes and flat hierarchies

  • Being part of a network constantly reveals new opportunities to work on impactful and publicly visible projects and initiatives

  • Your expertise and experience place you as an integral and central part of the team in Zurich and across the organization

  • You may get to be hands-on at one point and direct and lead activities throughout the entire design process at another point

  • With your know-how, you will be shaping our and our clients' offering in the digital sphere

What you will do: 

  • You will be taking over the design lead role on various projects, pitches and initiatives

  • Sometimes, you will be hands-on designing – from visualizing an idea and creating a mockup for a pitch to setting up a design library or fine-tuning screens for an app

  • More importantly, you will be leading other designers to create with passion, giving them creative direction and ensuring the final product excites us, our clients and their users

  • In your leadership role, you may also be client-facing, holding presentations or running workshops, or you enable your peers to do so

  • You educate and inspire our design team and colleagues and provide them with actionable advice

  • You ensure and stand up for creative and visual excellence

What we offer:

  • Agile, cross-functional and international team collaboration for national and international clients and projects

  • Flexible remote work and home office policy

  • Part-time or full-time (80%-100%)

  • Personal and professional growth, career and educational opportunities and offerings 

  • Competitive salary, a wide variety of fringe benefits and compensations

  • A pleasant working atmosphere and lovely colleagues


What you should bring with you:

  • Solid experience in user-centered design, user experience design, design systems, interface and interaction design for web and native applications

  • Several years of professional experience in the development of digital services and products from scratch

  • Excellent know-how of the design process, methodologies and mindsets, from design thinking methods to agile ways of working

  • Ability to bring your ideas to life visually and tangibly – from scribble to static, to animated to interactive

  • Experience with digital user interface creation, animation and prototyping tools such as Figma, Adobe CS and emerging tools in the field

  • A high affinity for creative direction and quality design

  • Decent knowledge of relevant technology, corresponding principles and frameworks

  • Strong interpersonal, communication and presentation skills

  • A good sense of humor and enjoyment of interdisciplinary teamwork

  • Experience of working in an agency environment

  • Fluency in German and English

We are looking for people with their own life story and out-of-the-ordinary resume. Individual, not just like the rest. Different rather than conventional. Diversity is our strength and an essential element of Accenture’s corporate culture. We want an inclusive and open working environment in which everyone can be their natural selves. Everyone is welcome to apply to Accenture, regardless of origin, creed, disability, age, nationality, marital status, partnership status, sexual orientation, gender or other legally protected reasons.
COVID-19 update:  The safety and well-being of our candidates, our people and their families continues to be a top priority. Until travel restrictions change, interviews will continue to be conducted virtually.
