UX Designer

Job description

Some people don't believe in magic. Others have lost their faith in tech. At Tover, our trust in both grows each day. One smile at a time. One game at a time. Co-designing purposeful games that delight and stimulate people with cognitive challenges, calls for a full-hearted approach and an inventive mindset. Our solutions may be playful, but we solve serious care and education issues. To maximise our impact, we need to enthuse care providers, teachers, and researchers globally. By inspiring them with relevant metrics. By constantly reinventing our propositions. And by always putting smiles on users' faces. Ready to infuse your career with a healthy dose of purpose? Dare to care with us!

What is your purpose?

At Tover, we don’t make ‘ordinary’ games for ‘ordinary’ people: we co-create purposeful games that inspire and put a smile on the faces of over 1,000,000 people with cognitive challenges. More than this, our games demonstrably improve our players’ long-term quality of life. Whether you zoom in on the Tovertafel UX or focus on My Tover (our online portal with instructional videos, tips and more), your every user flow, wireframe, prototype, mock-up, and design will help us deliver on our promise to positively impact their lives. Do you want to infuse your already awe-inspiring UX portfolio with a more profound sense of purpose? Help us create and cultivate wonder, excitement and connections between people!


The TL;DR version

  • Own the end-to-end design funnel: understand user needs, frame issues, ideate flows and prototypes
  • Be the digital design system’s revered champion and most ardent ambassador: evolve the design system and visual style guide, e.g. by incorporating best practices for responsive web design
  • Test designs with our customers (care and education professionals), using both quantitative and qualitative techniques
  • Team up with developers to produce high-quality, prikkelende interactive experiences & spot-on designs 
  • Collaborate with designers, product owners, and business stakeholders: pick their brain about your designs 
  • Measure the success of your design decisions and ‘correct course’ if and when needed.
