Do you want to take lead in building a design organization second to none? We’re currently north of 40 designers in a UX and Service Design group going through a strong growth phase. We’re looking for someone to take charge of forming processes, tools, culture and organisation to create conditions for our designers to deliver great value with minimum friction. Is that someone you?
User Experience & Service Design has grown fast in terms of importance and headcount in the past few years at Swedbank. As a design organisation grows, the small inefficiencies and frictions in the design work that used to be manageable in a small team starts to compound and grow to a point where it all adds up to really affect the bottom line. That’s why we’re now doubling down on ironing out the kinks in our design operation to basically build the best design organisation in all of Sweden. Design Operations (DesignOps) commands a central role in this work.
For us, DesignOps is about creating the best conditions possible for designers to get things done and enable design to create maximum value with minimum friction. Basically, making sure the design practice, the people and the projects are healthy. DesignOps activities span from making sure that everyone has a proper Sketch license to creating staffing plans and building a strong design culture.
You will lead and coordinate a small team of people who work either full time or part of their time on DesignOps tasks.
At Swedbank you’ll be part of the journey of establishing design as a force to be reckoned with in an organisation of 14 000 people, reaching over 7 million customers. We’re not there yet. We still face struggles in finding good ways of working and establishing an understanding of the value of design. But we have good traction. We’ve doubled the design organisation in the past year or two and the interest in design is growing in our organisation. It’s definitely an exciting time to do design at Swedbank!
We’re committed to the well-being and development of our employees! We’ll do our utmost to create conditions where you can grow and thrive personally and professionally. You’ll be part of a team of over 40 experienced designers of different skillsets to learn from.
Swedbank is a stable workplace with good benefits and room to grow!
