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.
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.

Collaborate with other team members and stakeholders
