Senior UI Designer - Budapest
Designers in Budapest, Hungary
We believe that all good things when people share ideas. We're looking for experienced designers to help us shape Prezi’s exciting future by redefining the way ideas are developed, presented, and shared We're proudly backed up by TED, Sunstone Capital and Accel Partners (the folks behind Facebook, Spotify, and Dropbox) and we have cool downtown offices in both Budapest and San Francisco.
What we’re doing
The most prevalent presentation tools are still based around concepts imagined over two decades ago. We believe that people’s ideas deserve better. Prezi is redefining what the experience of building and sharing ideas should be today. We’re breaking away from the restrictions of slides, making space for non-linear narratives, and providing a seamless workflow that encompasses before, during, and after a presentation. Prezi was born in the cloud — offering our users all the flexibility of a web-based product and the limitless opportunities of cross platform collaboration. We see a huge potential in Prezi and feel that we have only just begun to scratch the surface.
How we work
We approach design with an empathetic and holistic view. Sharing ideas is in our DNA and for us, design doesn’t start and finish with creating compelling UI in Photoshop. Prezi designers embed themselves into cross-functional teams where they work side-by-side with product managers, developers, and user researchers. We’re involved in every step of the process, from strategy conception to following up post-release. And because Prezi is our product, after we sketch, whiteboard, prototype, and iterate, we get the chance to further improve our designs by learning from data and real people.
Prezi is a constantly evolving product that will never be "done" because we know we can always make it better. Every day, millions of people share ideas with Prezi--improving their experience and making Prezi more accessible are the two goals that drive everything we do.
Who we're looking for
You’re someone that shares our ambitions, but you also think we could be doing it so much better. Moreover you can articulate where we’re going wrong and what we can do to fix it. As a person and a professional, you're not afraid of big challenges, dealing with complexity, and exploring uncharted territories. You have an unshakable passion to create beautiful, powerful, and appropriate interfaces. You have experience with interaction design and it’s reflected throughout your body of work. Ideally, you’ve worked on a web-based product and can proudly point us to it. You’ve designed for mobile and multi-platform and know well the constraints and opportunities that come with both of these.
You're a team player at heart that thrives at providing inspiration for the designers around you, as well as geeky developers and grumpy product managers. You know when to make concessions and when not to relent. You have a constructive attitude and process feedback easily. You like to work in an agile, fast-paced environment. It’s a huge plus for everyone if you can quickly prototype your designs. You live and breathe design but you are curious and open-minded enough to enjoy life beyond your beautiful retina display.
This position is located at our main office in downtown Budapest. We're walking distance from some of the best bars in the world, wonderful sixteenth-century thermal baths, and a multitude of iconic landmarks and that’s just touching on the surface of Budapest’s charm. You'll work within our small design group in a multinational team of more than a hundred. We'll have a team dedicated to providing you with all the assistance you need to relocate. If you choose to do so, you won’t be the first as you can see from this post (this one too).
