Thanks to a unique partnership with Accenture Interactive, we’re able to do work that changes the world and Fjord is always looking for kindred spirits. Digital is no longer the centerpiece of brand experience; the emphasis is shifting onto how best to use it as an invisible enabler of physical and sensory experiences. As interactions with users evolve from periodic engagements via a screen to consistent, connected experiences, organizations must create new services that are deeply integrated in the physical world.

 

We are a family of Fjordians, our living culture and borderless playground provide us with space to thrive, following simple core values that inform everything we do. Be adventurous. Bring a vision. Make an impact. Rely on empathy. Nurture collaboration. Stay transparent. Be bold and generous in all you do. 

 

At Fjord, Service & Interaction Design are at the heart of our design process. Our Service and Interaction Designers are a diverse team of strategic, empathetic thinkers and deep interaction specialists who envision and craft experiences from service design to digital product creation. 

 

The Interaction Design Lead owns Interaction Design as a discipline on projects and accounts and contributes to the practice at the studio level and sharing responsibility for the Interaction Design team across all studio accounts. On projects, you’ll support and provide oversight on all aspects of Interaction Design, and lead Interaction Design efforts on our most ambitious work. This is your opportunity to be part of a team that is creating positive impact for our clients and the world by creating products and services that people love.

  • Naturally engaging people at a deep level whether observing or interviewing customers, working with fellow team members, clients and channeling the inner creative.

  • A visual and verbal storyteller, delivering insights about people and behavior in a way that generates empathy, emotion, and engagement from the client and design team.

  • Comfortable with ambiguity in a fluid organization.

  • Ready to collaborate on products and services that change the way our clients do business creating service at scale.

  • Passionate about creating experiences that fuse physical and digital through research, analytics, design and delivery.

 

Role Description

A professional in this position, at this level within Accenture has the following responsibilities:  

 

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

  • Manage all Interaction Design activities on projects, including client workshops, creative brainstorms, and interaction and service design definitions. 

  • Explain, discuss, and justify design decisions eloquently. Give effective feedback and direction to more junior members of the team to ensure quality of design work.
