Location: Tumkur, Bangalore ,Remote India

We are looking for a motivated and professional Product Designer to help us grow and enhance the best hosting service and site management dashboard on the market. This is an opportunity to work in a dynamically growing international company where what you do has a direct and immediate impact.

Key responsibilities:

On the service level what we create is the SOFTRE experience. For the design side this means we turn business problems into deliverable solutions even if it overarches different touchpoints of our service.

Working on this usually means conducting research, understanding the underlying technologies and constraints, mapping user journeys, and creating a solution that’s best and also feasible.

On the product level our core responsibility is continuously enhancing My SOFTRE, our hosting management platform and a variety of internal tools. On the design side we create UI design and prototypes, write UI copy, and provide functional specifications for our designs. We work in close collaboration with the development team to ensure efficiency in delivery, but also iterate on our solutions as needed. Most of our UI is created with the help of our existing design system, so we are not necessarily looking for a graphic designer but rather a product designer with a very strong sense and a methodical approach to usability.

What we do often involves rather technical details. This should not intimidate you because we work with great engineers who are awesome at explaining technology, but you should expect that you’ll need to adopt a deep technical understanding of our industry. Still, the essence of the product design work is problem solving and if you’re eager to create a cutting edge digital product, you’ll like what you find here.

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills including collaborating with developers, coordinating with stakeholders, and articulating design decisions.
  • High level of Hungarian and English in speaking and writing.
