Job description
The IBM Design Division need talented and motivated junior designers to join an era of design-led innovation at one of the largest software companies in the world. Designers will conceive and articulate the future of IBM’s entire portfolio of products, ranging from software and hardware to consulting. All of our Software Design roles are based at our Software Development Lab in Hursley near Winchester. Set in a beautiful countryside location, Hursley is IBM’s largest software development laboratory in Europe. Pushing the boundaries of technology in an increasingly demanding world is a way of life at IBM Hursley. It has a relaxed, creative atmosphere that some liken to a university campus. You will initially be allocated to one particular product area. Throughout your first 2 years with us, you will then be rotated through other product areas thus giving you an amazing opportunity to enhance your experience, network and product knowledge. You will be expected to attend a three month design camp at our Austin, Texas location during the first year of your employment.

User Experience Designers
UX Designers will craft intuitive interactions and workflows informed by market and user research. Industrial designers with strong interaction design skills are welcome to apply.

User Experience Researchers
UX Researchers will specialize in discovering, analyzing, and communicating user needs and evaluating user experiences. They will use qualitative and quantitative user research to prioritize design work and communicate results to other members of the team.

Visual Designers
Visual designers will use their expertise in designing visual communication, layout, typography, color, etc. to elicit emotional connections and intuitive, intelligent responses from our audience. Pixel perfect precision and expert skills in Adobe Creative Suite and other design software are a must.

Design Developers
Design Developers will use their expertise in front-end programming, mobile platforms and web markup, to quickly prototype a working model of the assets and ideas generated by Visual Designers, User Experience Designers and Researchers. A strong background in front-end technology (web and/or mobile) is a must.

Each of these positions offers an excellent opportunity to develop a design career with a multi-disciplinary team of developers, designers and business professionals focused on the next generation of software.
