Requirements

  • Be collaborative – You value everyone’s perspectives and one of your most powerful design skills is workshop facilitation to help everyone on your team understand the full context of a problem, opportunity, or solution and come to a shared understanding.
  • Be outcome-focused – At Loblaw, customer and business outcomes are everyone’s responsibility. You’re a systems thinker who can think beyond screen design to understand how our users’ and our business’ broader context inter-connect and influence user experience design decisions.
  • Be hypothesis-driven – You love the problem, not your solutions. Your design practice is grounded in the acknowledgement that every solution is a hypothesis built on assumptions and that those hypotheses and assumptions need to be tested and validated.
  • Be self-managed – You understand the design process well enough to be able to proactively plan and scope your work effort to collaborate with product managers and developers to sequence your work. 
  • Be agile - Apply Agile methodology principles to design processes, ensuring iterative and incremental product development, and leverage Jira for task management, tracking, and workflow optimization.

Responsibilities

  • Frame problems and opportunities: you’ll have access to existing data and research as well as the directive to identify when primary research needs to be done to define the problem or opportunity at hand. You’ll communicate with stakeholders to capture and define product requirements, ensuring alignment with business objectives. You’ll also build a strong understanding of industry trends and competitor products to inform design strategies.
  • Interaction design: you have a grasp of the interplay among words, visuals, space, time, and behaviours of digital user interfaces.  You’ll also contribute to the design system for the products in your portfolio.
  • Service design: your role offers opportunities to go beyond digital UI to influence the fundamental design of the services we offer to our users.
  • Facilitate: Guide workshops, user interviews and discussions to help colleagues reach a shared understanding of problems and opportunities.
  • Research: Conduct generative research to deepen our understanding of end user needs, design and conduct usability tests on your design ideas, use the findings to refine your ideas, and continuously iterate to make our products better
  • Hand-off: Create all required design artifacts for our developers to implement. You’ll produce high-quality accessible design deliverables in Figma, including wireframes, prototypes, and visual designs
  • Measure: Track the performance of designs post-launch and continue to optimize based on data.
