Design dominates everything else at Keka
Keka is disrupting the HR Tech space with ‘Design’ as the differentiator and have fast become the market leader. Design therefore is at the core of everything we do and Design dominates everything else at Keka. You will find people at every level talking UX. What that means to you as a designer is that you no longer are limited by tech teams or bureaucratic management telling you what’s possible and what’s not. Experience is the end goal and you are at the helm of designing experiences!
Boring things made interesting.
Payroll was boring. HR operations were boring. That was until we made them interesting, with UX. Keka made the HR tech cool and sexy again. Simple actions such as applying leave, are a design canvas for us to show how great an employee experience we can create. We set a benchmark in an industry that is inundated with clunkly ‘enterprise’ software experiences. This is therefore your chance to rethink how “business software” should look and function, and to have fun while doing it.
The Traits we look in you
Not just Pretty but intuitive designs
You must have an incredible eye for detail. You don’t just create pretty mockups in a vacuum, you also ensure they’re usable and efficient. You should have deep sense of intuition and role-playing ability to step into customers’ mind and come up with interfaces that adapt to their workflow. The UI screens should drift from screen to screen as the user expects them to and make their life easier reducing the burden of useless clicks and actions.
“There are three responses to a piece of design - yes, no and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for.” -- Milton Glaser
Passionate about Design
Passionate UX designers constantly watch people do what they do and analyze why. They can’t help but redesign inefficient user interactions or processes that they come across in everyday life. It could be an interaction on a web, mobile device, a grocery store, architectural design or a simple bureaucratic workflow. Everything in this world is an interaction to be improved!
Prior SaaS / B2B experience is a must
You must have had prior experience designing UX for enterprise or B2B products. Unlike B2C where you can put yourselves in the context of the user, enterprise applications require stepping into an alien’s shoes and that’s not a skill and patience, everyone possess. And that’s exactly what we strongly desire. And if you worked in a SaaS environment designing intuitive workflows with myriads of varying parameters, that’s definitive plus skill!
