About Impraise
 

Founded in 2014, Impraise is one of the most successful people-focused companies to come out of Y Combinator. With offices in Amsterdam, Lisbon, and New York, Impraise has quickly become one of the fastest growing tech companies in Europe.

Serving hundreds of customers worldwide, Impraise is the partner of choice when it comes to creating a feedback culture that empowers organizations and its most valuable asset — it’s people.

    
The Role

User Experience Design is at the core of the Impraise product team. In this role you create and test concepts for new features, translate high level ideas into concrete solutions, and you are a central figure of one or more feature teams. UX designers are great collaborators and work together with our engineers, product managers, and UI designers to deliver value to our customers.

Our teams take real ownership over the product and work with specific targets to improve our web and mobile apps. This way they have the freedom to decide how to influence the success of Impraise.

As UX designer you’ll be part of the growing the Impraise Design Team: a group of UX, UI and Brand Designers with the goal to push product and brand design to the next level. 

The Product
Impraise is a people enablement platform. With our desktop and mobile apps we make performance and development processes meaningful for people, actionable for managers, and painless for HR. Our users request and exchange timely feedback, and take ownership of their day-to-day performance objectives and long-term career aspirations.

 

A Typical Week

A typical week in the shoes of a UX designer at Impraise might look something like this:

  • You'll brainstorm with Product Managers, Designers, Engineers on concepts and new features.
  • Influence the shape of the product based on research and data while executing wireframes, mockups, user journeys, and cross-platform interactive prototypes.
  • You’ll be sharing and presenting your work to your team, while being able to precisely articulate design rationale.
  • Together with Product Managers, Engineers, Marketing, and Customer Success you’ll launch your work for tens of thousands of users worldwide.
  • We’ll learn together through design reviews, co-designing sessions and regular workshops.
  • At the end of the week, you’ll celebrate your accomplishments and learnings with the team during our company stand-up.

P.S - Drinks are on us 🍺🍷
