Senior UX Designer, Video Security

Ava is a global technology company with offices in the UK, Norway, and the USA. We exist because we believe that we can create a better, smarter way to deliver security.

We inject intelligence into our approach to security and all our solutions. We help organizations see, understand, and act on their surroundings to protect their people, business, and reputation in real-time.

We know that the best way to meet our goals is with a diverse team, where everyone’s voice is heard. We’re proud that our company comprises 24 nationalities and we’re always looking to increase the variety of ideas and points of view at Ava.

We founded Ava Cyber in 2016 and Ava Video in 2018 and the two companies merged in 2020 to become a unified security provider with extensive capital investment from Ubon Partners.

About this position

We are looking for an experienced UX designer to join our design team in Oslo. You will be joining an awesome team that currently consists of six people - two UX, one UI, and three marketing designers.

You will get the opportunity to work alongside some highly experienced industry professionals in a small but fast-growing company, working closely with UI designers and engineers throughout the whole design process. You will be responsible for designing and developing a key part of the product from day one and we will expect you to be proactive, take strong ownership of tasks, and make decisions that will benefit the company and define our product. As a senior designer, you will need to manage and prioritize workload in a fast-paced work environment.

We are a small company with a diverse team, so you will also be involved in mentoring graduates. This is extremely important and is a part of all of our experienced roles.

Together with our cybersecurity department, you will also get the opportunity to shape our unified security solution.

About you

You’re not expected to have all of the following skills, but they will be useful in performing your job.

We are looking for someone who:

  • Is passionate about creating great user experiences on screen.
  • Has advanced knowledge of a wide range of design tools and techniques, e.g. Sketch, Invision, Illustration.
  • Is able to develop wireframes, interactive prototypes, as well as manage and develop our current design library and processes.
  • Has knowledge of UX and UI best practices and patterns, e.g. material design, accessibility requirements.
  • Has excellent visual communication skills.
  • Has good interview and workshop skills with users/customers.
  • Understands, can structure and can convey complex information in an easily understandable and user-friendly way.
  • Has a Master’s degree in interaction design, UX design, or other equivalent subjects.
  • 4+ years or more work experience in application design for both mobile and desktop.
  • Has an online portfolio or samples of work showing relevant experience.

Even though you’re not expected to be an artistic graphic designer, it is an advantage if you have a solid understanding of layout, compositions, colors, and typography to be able to deliver designs of high graphical quality. It’s also an advantage if you have some experience with programming in a design context, like for creating interactive prototypes. If you have experience working with and visualizing large data sets, that’s also considered a plus.

We think you could be a good fit if you are a team player who thinks holistically, enjoys solving complex problems, and thrives working autonomously, while not afraid to ask for input and learn from your teammates if you’re stuck.

It is also considered a bonus if you are: 

  • Interested in and have a good understanding of technology.
  • A fast learner and enjoy challenging yourself with new things.
  • A constructive person with a positive and open mindset.
  • A self-motivated and structured person who knows how to build a system around workflow.
  • Detail-oriented person who can catch all possible use scenarios for inclusion in a design spec.

Does this sound like you? We'd love you to apply, even if you don't meet 100% of the requirements and qualifications.

  • Flexible working hours.
  • A remote-friendly organization, with colleagues working remotely either part or full-time.
