UX / Product Designer Consultant (Contract)

The Role

Axiom Zen is looking for UX Designer Consultant with a focus on product design to join our Vancouver office for three-to-six months, with the possibility for extension.

At Axiom Zen, our UX / Product Designers consider the full spectrum of a product, not just the specific elements like the UX or visual design. We don’t expect you to be a master of every aspect involved in designing a product, but you’re comfortable with how these concepts overlap and how they contribute to a better product.

As a UX / Product Designer Consultant at Axiom Zen, you know how to hit the ground running from day one to make maximum impact. You will facilitate product visions by researching, conceiving, wireframing, sketching, prototyping, and mocking up user experiences for digital products. You’re great at validating ideas, communicating your recommendations, taking feedback and brainstorming with the team. You also don’t shy away from taking charge and leading design meeting when necessary.

  • Has designed many different web and mobile products from concept to completion, with a portfolio that excites!

About Us

Axiom Zen is a startup that builds startups. We specialize in new venture creation, taking ideas from paper to product-market fit. We have developed the people, processes, and perspectives necessary to successfully navigate the nexus where the latest advancements in design, engineering, and business intersect.

We believe traditional approaches to innovation have stopped working; the strategic landscape is changing too fast. By the time carefully-laid plans are implemented, they are already outdated. A successful endeavour doesn’t play catch-up!

Optimizing for impact often means working with emerging technologies (like VR and AI), but also includes advances in product, visual design, and even storytelling. Our team of fifty founder-quality engineers, designers, and product leads combine a wealth of experience from fast-growing startups as well as companies like Apple, Google, and SpaceX.
