We are looking for a passionate and engaged UI Designer with experience in mobile application design and web design to join our team. Hands on experience in advertising or marketing graphic design is a plus. The position is in Gothenburg, Sweden and is part of the global Opera Payment Product Department.

The Opera Payments Platform (OPay) enables users to pay for various services through their mobile or web browser. It provides fast, easy, and secure payments and money transfers. Our key markets are emerging economies in Africa, Asia, and South America, where Opera has a traditionally strong presence and user base.

As part of the design team, you will design and deliver a simple and easy-to-use payment experience both on mobile apps and on the web.

As a UI Designer, you will collaborate with other members of our product, design, and engineering teams to translate concepts into a living, breathing product and service.

It is essential that the right candidate can articulate design rationally, verbally, and visually. You have the proven ability to work in a team of creatives with a hands-on approach from receiving the briefing to the final execution.
