How you’ll make an impact

We’re looking for an experienced UI/UX Designer or Graphic Designer with UI/UX experience to contribute to all aspects of design and creative processes and outputs.  You will ensure that all elements of the online user experience and workflows are optimised for improved usability, usefulness, and exceptional visual design.  You will work with a team on a range of complex digital products for external and internal customers. This role is essential to the success of our business. It requires close working relationships with project teams and customers while working on multiple products simultaneously, so you will need to be self-motivating and self-managing with an inquisitive mind.  You may on occasion be asked to complete some in-house graphics work, but the primary focus of this role is around the UI/UX design.  You will drive design thinking processes within the company and design thinking workshops with our clients. As you are the sole designer for the projects you work on, it is a great opportunity to really own this space and showcase your talent.

You will inspire positive change, and the tools you provide our clients with, will make a positive impact for them and their stakeholders.

This role can be either full-time or part-time (around 30 hours/week).

What you’ll bring with you

If you only have some of the skills we are after, please still apply.  Most importantly, we are looking for the right person who fits with our culture and has the attitude we are looking for.


As we have offices in both Auckland and Christchurch, you can work from either location.

We pride ourselves in the culture our people have created.  We provide many extra benefits that enables us to be a flexible work environment.

We operate an environment where we help each other so together we achieve great results.  We will assist you to achieve a greater technical understanding of your work and supportive of your professional development.

Our firm is growing, and your career growth will only be limited by your talent and ambition.

We offer very competitive salaries, and our offices in Christchurch and Auckland are centrally located in close proximity to public transport with great cycling facilities.  We are technology and thought leaders and we have a number of industry 'firsts' under our belt.  We work in a diverse team that has a great gender, ethnic and age mix and would welcome applicants from an equally diverse range of people.
