UX/UI Designer


Responsible Recruiter: Temitope Ayodele

The Role

We have built the KONUX Predictive Maintenance System for rail switches, the first AI-based solution for the rail industry.

As a UI/UX Designer, you will solve complex design problems with a focus on our users’ needs. You are a well-rounded designer, who steps back to analyze complex workflows but also dives into the interactions and visual details. You are comfortable sharing early and often feedback, collaborating with other designers and cross-functional stakeholders to establish a world-class user experience for our customers across our digital product platform. This role is primarily focused on UI Design, however you should feel comfortable with tools and methods from the complete UX Design process. Our ideal candidate has a clean design sense, and is dedicated to molding complex, dry experiences into simple, delightful ones.

When pioneering a new technology, the unexpected is expected. Thus, the KONUX Culture includes a growth mindset, resilience, and flexibility. This means: seeing setbacks as learning opportunities and encouraging you to drive harder. Improving continuously by failing fast and learning fast. Staying up when the going gets tough. Thinking and acting without barriers within a highly dynamic environment, based on data-driven decisions. If you share that culture… Apply and become a part of the KONUX vision: Transform railway operations for a sustainable future!
