What we’re looking for:

If you are someone who thrives in a fast paced, innovative environment, and has a passion for baking unique experiences into product designs, then the role of Product Designer at Dukka Inc. might be right for you.

This is an innovative new product in the Nigerian B2B space.

We are building a suite of products that do not quite exist in the Nigerian business landscape, and this will be an opportunity for you to put your stamp on the product that is being built.

Job Description

As a Product designer, you want to measure and optimise our applications to improve ease of use (usability), and create the best and simplest user experience by exploring many different approaches to solve end-users’ problems.

We are looking for a well rounded product designer who is able to understand our business requirements and any technical limitations, as well as be responsible for conceiving and conducting user research, interviews and surveys, and translating them into sitemaps, user flows, customer journey maps, wireframes, mockups and prototypes.

The Product designer will also be expected to design the overall functionality of the product, and in order to ensure a great user experience, iterate upon it in accordance with user-testing.

A good product designer must have empathy for the user, a deep understanding of user-centered design (UCD), and strong analytical abilities.

Typically, we expect you to be a design generalist who can cater to our design needs.

You should be motivated to combine the art of design with the art of programming.

Responsibilities may include translation of the UI/UX design wireframes to actual code that will produce visual elements of the application. You should also be comfortable with designing some graphics as required by the team internally, and sometimes, for marketing purposes.

This role reports to the Product Lead.

Consider existing applications, evaluate, and troubleshoot their UX effectiveness

Run user testing of applications, software, and websites

Conduct layout adjustments based on user feedback

Adhere to style standards on fonts, colors, and images

Design new user-facing features

Collaborate with other team members and stakeholders

Help decide the direction the application’s design takes



Whilst it would be great for you to have a Bachelor's / Master's Degree in Design, Computer Science, Engineering or relevant field from an accredited university, we place a higher value on significant work experience in the workforce to compensate where there is no qualification.

Skills and Qualifications:

Proven work experience as a UI/UX Designer or similar role

Portfolio of design projects

Knowledge of wireframe tools (e.g. Sketch, Mockflow and InVision)

Up-to-date knowledge of design software like Adobe XD, Adobe creative suite, Figma and similar tools

Team spirit; strong communication skills to collaborate with various stakeholders

Skill in Mobile and enterprise design (Mobile, tablet, desktop)

Iconography (Asset design)

Logo design

Good time-management skills

Proficient understanding of web markup, including HTML5, CSS3, React will earn you more points

Knowledge of 3D tool e.g Blender or 3D max are highly valued

Proficient understanding of server-side CSS pre-processing platforms, such as LESS, SASS, bootstrap will earn you more points
