Your Title: Design Technologist

Location: Christchurch, New Zealand

Division: Agriculture

Are you interested in bringing design concepts that will help farmers globally to life? Our Agriculture Team is looking for a Design Technologist to help support development within our division.

What You Will Do

In our User Experience team, the guiding principle is straightforward yet essential: “Design industry-leading solutions that delight customers and drive business growth through empathy, collaboration, research, and efficiency.” Design Technologists make this possible.

As a Design Technologist, you’ll work alongside a team of User Experience practitioners, engineers, and product teams to turn concepts into living, breathing prototypes and iterate on interactions, animations, and details to deliver best-in-class user experiences for our website platform. As a Design Technologist, you’ll combine strong UI design aesthetics with technical ability.

In this role, you will work creatively through and around perceived limitations and/or challenges, as well as partner with product management and engineering to ensure that techniques and designs translate to existing user needs and technical guidelines.

  • Create prototypes based on design concepts created by the user experience team and the company’s design system

  • Use strong design principles that relate to typography, color, spacing, iconography, etc., to aid in the creation of prototypes

  • Build and iterate on appropriate-fidelity prototypes that express design intent

  • Componentize existing web pages with the standards and structures of the company’s design system

  • Develop front-end code based on the business requirements and the company’s design system

  • Deliver code that is flexible and can be iterated upon, with an understanding of what to fake and what to make.

What Skills & Experience You Should Bring

  • Bachelor's degree in computer science, interaction design, human-computer interaction (HCI), or related UX degree

  • Web UI development knowledge with HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, JSON, REST, etc

  • Demonstrated hands-on experience with Vue or other Javascript-based Web UI frameworks

  • A portfolio of work that demonstrates an ability to create simple, well-thought workflows and experiences that solve problems

  • Fluency in user interface design fundamentals (typography, color, spacing, iconography)

  • Excellent verbal communication skills

  • Collaborative in spirit, open to iteration and feedback

  • Strong attention to detail.

About Your Location

Based at our main campus in Christchurch, New Zealand, enjoy free parking, an onsite gym, an active social club, and a great team environment where people love working with leading technology solutions.

Here you'll find the inspiration and opportunity to be yourself and thrive with a team that is passionate about bringing new ideas and innovations to life and building a better, more sustainable future.
