UX Engineer at CitizenLab

As a UX Engineer in our product team, you are responsible for providing the user with the most delightful and effective experience when interacting with our product. 

  • You take part in feature planning meetings across our two product squads. In close collaboration with the engineers, you come up with solutions and relentlessly inject the user perspective. 
  • You’re always making small design prototypes, validating them with users, together with the product manager. 
  • You deliver the final designs with care for details and technical feasibility. 
  • You take ownership of the component library and tweak our visual identity, in collaboration with our designer.

At CitizenLab, we work in small teams where members collectively take ownership of the outcome of the features they build. We work in very small iterations and release continuously. We’re strong believers in user testing and understanding live product usage.

What do we expect from you?

  • You have multiple years of experience in product design.
  • You're great at building UI designs and prototypes.
  • You're effective at validating these designs with real users, both in-person and in-product.
  • You know how to translate your designs to HTML and CSS.
  • You're great at interpreting the numbers of product usage analytics.
  • You have a good understanding of a component-based front-end framework like React.
  • You're an excellent listener and able to unify UX, technical and business constraints in your designs.

What can you expect from us?

  • Unlock your full potential and have an impact at scale. We're daily working with +125 governments to connect them to their citizens.
  • Become a key factor in our rapid transition from startup (15 employees) to scaleup (35 employees).
  • Work in a fast-paced, collaborative and supportive environment—right in the heart of Brussels.
  • Be part of our dynamic European team. We organise many team activities and go for lots of spontaneous after-works... which inevitably turn into political discussions after two beers—that's an interest we all share. :)
  • Informal work vibe with open communication and full transparency on results.
  • Participate in inspiring team lunches, bi-quarterly strategic town halls, bi-yearly off-site team retreats.
  • Receive a competitive salary package, incl. perks such as 26 paid holidays, your own laptop, flexibility on working from home, and more.

CitizenLab is committed to being a diverse and inclusive workplace. We encourage applicants of different backgrounds, cultures, genders, experiences, abilities and perspectives to apply.
