Visier is looking for a creative, engaging user experience person to join our growing team!

The opportunity.

Visier is leading a revolution in analytics and planning. We are taking the market by storm by changing how people think about business intelligence. We want to get people quickly to business insights without getting mired in technical implementation details. We offer a software-as-a-service solution that enables users to understand their business through visually compelling analytics. Our products deliver that “ah-ha!” moment when insight leads to better business performance.

We believe that our customers should be excited to use our software. They will learn by interacting with our products, not from reading a boring manual or spending thousands on consultants and classes. You are critical to helping us execute this vision. We need your skill, your excitement, and your vision for helping us change people’s expectation of business software. Show us how you see this happening. Teach us how we can be better!

We’re a young company and we want someone who defines himself or herself as a leader. You’ll be surrounded by like-minded people eager to build this company together and make it the best place we’ve ever worked. If you like startup culture and are eager to make your mark then Visier is the place for you.

You’ll translate requirements into UX research into workflows, wireframes, and finally pixel-perfect mock-ups to articulate your vision. You’ll have to spend time getting to know our customers and our products without hand-holding. As well as a “self-starter” you will be resourceful and energetic. You’ll be supported in your work with a top-notch design and development team that has already been successful in launching our initial products to market. Visier provides a great balance between support and challenge – everyone is excited to help you learn AND we expect everyone to be proactive in managing their output to be the best it can be.

About you.

You are excited to create new ways to interact with everyday things. You see opportunity in defining new, creative and simple visual methods to engage and impress people and make them excited to use software. You constantly see examples of old, tired design paradigms and think about how you could make them better! You’re looking for a company that is forward-thinking in its design, yet has a proven business model and successful product. You can balance your enthusiasm for new ideas with functional pragmatism and a customer-centric mindset. You are excited to share your thinking, design philosophy and enthusiasm with the whole company to help spread your vision for how to create and use beautiful software!

You have a strong visual-design background and you should possess a bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience, but most importantly be able to demonstrate how you’ve taken your vision and made it real. You’ll need excellent knowledge of user-centric design methodologies and be excited to tell us your take on the research and thinking in this space. You’ll already have experience developing wireframe prototypes, creating high-fidelity software mock-ups, ideally using Adobe design tools and have excellent experience with CS Illustrator. You will need to be eager to talk to customers and learn how they work, being able to run usability tests and conduct user interviews as part of your research.

It would be great if you have exposure to the business intelligence software space and have an analytical mind with a passion for data visualization. Making the complex simple and clear is a key skill.

If this describes you and you want to be part of one of the most exciting software companies to come out of Vancouver, you need to get in touch with us!

An ideal candidate would have the following:
Bachelor’s degree or equivalent, five years of related experience
Excellent knowledge user-centric design methodologies
Experience with user interface conventions and UI pattern driven design
Experience with wireframe prototyping as well as creating high-fidelity mockups
Strong visual design background. Experience with Adobe design tools, excellent knowledge of CS Illustrator
