  • An established team of supportive designers, researchers and colleagues. We’re a ‘flat’ team, and everyone is here to muck in and do great work. We foster and encourage innovation, creativity and collaboration.
  • Interesting and varied work across a diverse group of clients where the focus is firmly on the quality of thinking to drive solid outcomes for our clients and their customers.
  • Flexible working hours
  • An open, creative and energetic working environment, where you can help shape, build and enhance the team's culture and way of working.


You will need.


We are looking for people from diverse backgrounds who have experience in some or all of the areas outlined in this job description – however, you must have had actual experience working in business or with clients.  


  • 2-6 years of relevant experience in UX and/or UI design
  • A portfolio of work demonstrating strong human-centred design capabilities across a diverse range of projects
  • Experience working within time-constrained projects and project budgets
  • Expertise or experience in turning ideas and concepts into ready to implement designs

  • Strong interpersonal and teaming skills, empathy and adaptability and willingness to work in interdisciplinary teams
  • A good understanding of general business practices, and how to navigate the needs of larger organisations.


At DNA, we are committed to providing a work environment that reflects the diversity of the communities we work in and the populations we serve. 


Regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, age, or ability, we firmly believe that our work is open, inclusive and that we are at our best when everyone feels free to contribute and be their best.


The successful candidate will be joining some serious talent working on a diverse portfolio of client projects in both the public and private sectors. If you are a curious individual that believes better experiences shape a better world, at the top of your game or determined to get there – we are interested in hearing from you.
