Job Description

INTERACTION DESIGNER
How can we revolutionize the way the world works and lives? How can we use emerging technologies to improve human life and experience? These are some of the questions we’re grappling with at The Dock, Accenture’s multi-disciplinary research and incubation hub in Dublin. Technology, design and business experts investigate, imagine and bring new ideas to life. Our designers at The Dock are part of Fjord, a global design and innovation consultancy. We bring the human to the heart of the solution, asking how technology augments and impacts people’s lives

The opportunity

We are looking for an Interaction Designer to join our Fjord design team in The Dock. The right candidate is someone who can take abstract concepts and craft compelling design propositions – in collaboration with a diverse team of design, technology and business experts. You are a team player who brings a diverse skillset to the table. You are passionate about emerging technologies and their potential to change how we live and work. You are also pro-active and hands on in your approach and are comfortable collaborating with software and analytics teams to build compelling and engaging proof of concept prototypes.

As an Interaction Designer, you:

• Uncover user needs through research, develop deep insights, generate concepts, and craft how people will interact with the products and services we design.

• Understand Interaction Design as a discipline and a practice.

• Tell an engaging story and clearly communicate design solutions, conceptual ideas and design rationale (both verbally and visually).

• Can quickly sketch ideas, to assess viability and align team on a vision.

• Translate abstract ideas into tangible, engaging experiences that help internal teams and clients learn.

• Consistently push yourself the boundaries of your design craft to explore emerging areas such as artificial intelligence, voice and mixed reality.

• Partner with design, technology, and project management to ensure the project meets creative, strategy, and project objectives.

Working together, we will:

• Unite and inspire designers, creating world-class work. 

• Consistently create and elevate brilliant design thinking in our studio and beyond. 

•Collaborate on products, experiences and services that build the business and change the way our clients think about design.
