Fonto is hiringUX Designer

Full TimeUX Design
Posted 2y ago

People have been creating print-ready documents in Microsoft Word for ages. But what if the same content is no longer just printed, but also published online? Our main UX challenge is to guide our end-users across many different industries to focus on structure rather than styling to create content that’s ready to go anywhere. 

As a UX designer at Fonto, you will change the way people work by designing a joyful editing and collaboration experience for authors and reviewers. This means that you will spend your days researching and designing features such as comments, tasks, tables, spellcheck, toolbars etc.

When you first start working at Fonto you will be given the time to get to know our complex products while solving smaller design challenges together with one of our experienced UX designers. You will also discuss technical possibilities with developers while creating prototypes from our design system. Most importantly, you will get a chance to get to know our diverse end-users. 

As you become more comfortable in your role you will start to lead your own projects from start to finish and eventually become responsible for the usability of one of our products.
