A design and technology firm in New York and Amsterdam.
At Your Majesty, User Experience Designers are tasked with creating digital experiences that bring people joy while fulfilling their needs. You will play a vital role in the life of a project from its conception to completion — from planning research methods to running participatory design workshops, gathering and synthesizing insights, and ideating how those needs should be met. At each stage, you'll anticipate what users will need and advocate on their behalf, articulating your vision through user flows, wireframes, prototypes, and more.
You're a natural-born problem solver with experience applying iterative design techniques like prototyping and user testing. Your definition of a happy day is being in an environment that allows you to develop your skills fluently with teammates who encourage you to experiment and grow. You are empathetic - you’re never satisfied until you’ve found the most intuitive and user-friendly solution. You truly sweat the details. You fight for the user every step of the way and can communicate how your designs will meet their needs through the use of storyboards, user journeys, wireframes, and more. You are passionate — you’re hungry to make things that people use every day. You thrive when you are collaborating with kind humans in an open and fun workplace, because hey, you are you.
