About us.

We're a cutting-edge tech company that loves to innovate, take on challenges, and push the boundaries of our sector. At LIFX we are hands on, collaborating closely across all parts of the company in Australia, Silicon Valley, Seattle, and globally - sharing expertise, knowledge, and skills. We love big ideas, genius at play, and good team players.

About you.

The right fit for this role will be a great communicator and collaborator whose passion for delivering experience design knows no bounds. You’ll have experience working in tech driven, best-in-class, research supported experiences across both physical and digital touchpoints. As part of our Design team, you'll work closely with Labs, App, Customer Success, and Marketing teams to deliver our vision to market.

We’re looking for someone who loves a challenge (like us), endlessly advocates for the customer, and can work with us to champion HCD, Design Thinking, and other customer centric ideals across our business. This is an “in-house role” but don’t be fooled—there are no ‘dull days’ here, just opportunities for varied and engaging hands-on work.

Day to day the job will look a bit like this:

  • Hands on UX Research and Design across the entire lifecycle of a project
  • Strong understanding of User Experience principals and best practices
  • Keen understanding of User Interface design with a focus on Atomic Design principals
  • Working across labs, app, site, customer success, and other engagement projects
  • Managing & coordinating your projects across various parts of the business
  • Offering input and extracting feedback from meetings along with sharing findings with various parts of the business (we’re very collaborative…)
  • Working with other teams to run quant and qual research using techniques such as multivariate testing, facilitating workshops and improving experiences.
  • Bring balance of both form and function into a tech landscape

Requirements

Must have:

  • A strong understanding of commonly used design applications such as Sketch (primary), Illustrator, Photoshop, Adobe XD, Figma, and more.
  • A passion for technology and IOT
  • Experience with research, testing, facilitation and execution of UX and UI work
  • Experience with UI best practices across accessibility, feedback, consistency, recall, and hierarchy using great standards, grids, typography, and responsiveness
  • The willingness to listen to feedback, work to a brief, take initiative, manage priorities and deliver on schedule
  • To be considered, show us what you got - we’d love to see case studies
  • The right to work in Australia in a full-time capacity
  • A tertiary design qualification preferred


For bonus points…

  • A background or interest in graphic and/or industrial design
  • Exposure to Design Thinking principals

Benefits

Make your mark on the experience and brand expression of one of Australia's leading tech innovators. Collaborate with tech royalty on projects - we could name-drop some Silicon Valley giants we regularly get to collaborate with but you'll just have to meet us to hear all about it.

At LIFX we have flexible working conditions across a global team of passionate and energetic people leading the smart home revolution. We actively work on creating a safe, inclusive environment free from discrimination.

While we'd love to have a coffee with all of you, only successful applicants will be contacted for an interview.
