In UX, we work in different domains such as Device, Comfort and Collaboration. Ideally, you will become part of our Collaboration domain, where you will be part of a cross-functional team designing great audio- and video devices. As the user needs and thereby requirements for such products are different from a regular headset, we need your competencies to ensure a continuous successful user experience of our Collaboration devices.
As a UX expert, you are actively seeking feedback, and you are easy-going and curious. You know that product making is a big machine with many viewpoints and stakeholders, and you maneuver through these with a conscious choice of methods and by distinguishing personal taste from professional opinions.
You easily keep an overview of the big picture as well as the finer details, understanding why they are important and how everything ties together. Lastly, you can explain your reasoning, accept a challenge, and make decisions.
