UX Designer

The mission

Most will agree that universities and colleges are quintessential to a well-functioning society. However, with their inherent operational complexity and immense size, they are among the most difficult organisations to run efficiently. TimeEdit is on a mission to solve this by delivering the most comprehensive suite of efficient resource management tools to the higher education sector globally. We are the fastest growing provider in the industry and are expanding rapidly with new implementations in the Netherlands, Belgium, Australia, New Zealand, to name a few. More and more universities are discovering TimeEdit to solve their scheduling and resource management needs.

The challenge

With the market transitioning away from legacy monoliths, Excel spreadsheets and home-grown has-beens, the TimeEdit Product & UX team plays a pivotal role in defining the next generation of digital tools for universities across the globe to use. Starting last year with the recruitment of our UX Lead, we are still in the defining phase of how UX should work at TimeEdit - this is a great chance to be part of that journey and a field we will heavily invest in going forward.

As a UX Designer at TimeEdit, you will:

  • Have broad role with responsibilities ranging from setting UX strategies & managing design systems to conducting user research and working together with the development teams delivering detailed designs
  • Be an ambassador within TimeEdit for user-centered design and educate the organisation on how to involve users in the development
  • Be part of our Product department together with a UX Lead and four Product Managers, reporting to the VP of Product and mentored by our UX Lead

Your day-to-day

  • Work with the rest of the Product department to set the high level strategy & vision for our product suite using ProductBoard
  • Continuously develop and refine our design system in Figma, building out components and guidelines to cover all products
  • Work on specific new development project in tight collaboration with product managers & SW developers
  • Engage with our end users to understand their needs and pains and perform user tests to verify your design
  • Test, review & approval of final developed products, features and end-to-end user workflows in Storybook & Chromatic

If you have a couple of years of experience with similar tasks as outlined above and believe joining one of the most exciting growth journeys in the Nordics would be for you, please apply.

About the company

TimeEdit was established in Gothenburg in the mid 90’s by an astrophysicist making a timetabling application from an Excel sheet on crack. Since then, the system has been professionalised and developed further to arguably become the world’s most modern fleet of resource management tools for higher education institutions.

Today, TimeEdit is a market leader in Europe and one of Scandinavia’s fastest-growing Edtech companies. On average, our customers spend 20% less on facilities, representing more than 4MEUR (!) in savings per year (yes, we’re pretty proud of that!). Less money spent on empty rooms means more resources allocated to research projects and higher education quality.

We recently celebrated our 170th customer and are growing fast through new exciting applications and a global roll-out. Today, more than seven hundred thousand students, teachers and schedulers use our products every day (yes, we’re pretty proud about that, too!).

Our office is located at Kungsportsplatsen in the heart of Gothenburg. There’s standing desks, great coffee (according to most), open areas, closed offices and a very BBQ friendly terrace.

Context, not controlIf the team is fully aware of our purpose and how it maps to TimeEdit's current state of business, we believe we can make much better decisions and accomplish far more than through a top-down management model.

Swing for the fencesWe encourage experimentation. Better to try and sometimes fail than to sit tight and… fail for sure. Each mistake carries a lesson, and we make sure to learn from it.

Judgment > PoliciesSocial media policy. Travel policy. Buy a round of beers at an event policy. Work from home policy. Nay. Our policy on these (and most things) consists of three words: Use good judgement.

Work-life fitWe're scaling a company where people can build their work around their life, not the other way around. Flexibility means you're in the driver's seat to create a schedule that works for you, your passions, and the people you love.
