Graduate User Experience Designer

Cisco Systems Inc.
Sheridan, IL 60551

In Lysaker, near Oslo, you find Cisco Webex Devices R&D Center. We make the best video conference systems in the world whether youre at your desk, in the meeting room or in the Boardroom. At Webex Devices, we reach for a degree of perfection you will only get when hardware and software are designed together. We develop all parts of our products under the same roof - from idea to design, mechanics, industrial design, user experience, machine learning and artificial intelligence. We simply create whatever we need.


Our goal is to transform the connections between people. Our products help people connect and collaborate all over the world. They are used by freelancers, small businesses, universities, governments, multinational corporations, powerful political leaders and even by Queen Elizabeth II.

We are looking for an ambitious User Experience designer to join our Collaboration Devices Design team.

What you will do:

As a User Experience Designer, you will be part of our Collaboration Devices Design team. We work closely with software developers and product managers in our Oslo office. In addition, we run cross-team activities, workshops, trainings and events with our design peers in California, Seattle, Ireland, and Shanghai.

You will be working closely with other UX designers, visual designers, service designers, industrial designers, product managers and engineers in the process of building the right experiences. In our multidisciplinary team, you are the ambassador for the millions of our users across the world. Your job is to identify user needs and maintain a user-centric perspective throughout the development process.

As a User Experience Designer, you will:

  • join an enthusiastic, high-performing team
  • contribute to our design process and principles
  • identify and prioritize user needs
  • explore possible solutions, and specify the flows and UI
  • coordinate design work across multidisciplinary teams
  • conduct heuristic evaluations on existing products
  • contribute to a consistent user experience within Ciscos Webex brand

Who you are

You are an analytical talent with a deep understanding of UX methodologies, processes and principles. You are up-to-date on trends and theory within the profession, and are passionate about design, technology and human collaboration. You enjoy making the complex simple, as well as flexing effortlessly between the bigger picture to central problems with attention to detail.

To succeed in this role, you need to be a team player. You communicate clearly and effectively, engage people around you and promote an open-minded environment for creative exploration and designs to become real. You are self-propelled and not afraid to take lead responsibility. You keep your eye on the goal, aim high and can be pragmatic when needed.

In addition, do you have:

  • relevant education (bachelor or higher) in Interaction/UX Design, or a related field?
  • proficiency in visualization, wireframing and prototyping tools such as Figma, and the Adobe suite?
  • know about usability principles and testing?
  • the ability to think end-to-end from insight to concept to wireframes to product delivery?
  • fluency in English, both written and verbally?

If this sounds like you, we are eager to hear from you!

Any professional experience of user interface design projects from concept to implementation in multidisciplinary teams is a major plus
