UX & UI Designer

Job description

We’re looking for a new full-time intermediate/senior UX & UI Designer to join our team of designers and developers in Helsinki who are passionate about creating meaningful digital experiences for our clients.

Our multinational team has a mixture of different cultures and we pride ourselves in having a team with all kinds of backgrounds. We’re outgoing, sarcastic, honest and always eager to keep learning. Hopefully, you are too. We like working closely together and always rely and learn from one another, so you’re never going to be stuck alone with a challenge or a project. 


Designing user flows, wireframes and visually captivating interfaces for websites, online stores and applications should be your bread and butter. We place great importance on UX, usability and accessibility, so hopefully you find these important as well.

Most of our projects are custom-made WordPress websites, WooCommerce stores and various different Web Applications. You can check out our previous and some ongoing projects on the Pixels website.
