From the day we opened our doors in 1971, MRI Software has built flexible, game-changing real estate software solutions to improve people’s lives. The only way to carry out that mission is to hire the absolute best employees on earth. People like you.

Work hard, play hard. Always. Our relentless commitment to client success, our employee resource groups and our promise to empower our teams to reach their full potential are a few examples of what makes MRI Software special.

And we’re insanely dedicated to creating a work environment that you look forward to every single day. That’s why we invest heavily in our employee engagement, so you enjoy the tech industry’s best perks. Together with the whole Pride, (lion roar for "family") employees, customers, and partners, we’re on a mission to break new ground and lead the real estate industry into a digital-first future.

We understand the need to provide a flexible working environment partnered with team collaboration and socialization. Therefore, we operate a hybrid working model with 3 days of working from home per week. This role can be based at our Cape Town office.

The Role:

As a Product Designer at MRI, you will work across the UX domain, including research (user interviews, product reviews, persona development), design (sketching, group ideation, information architecture, interaction design, prototyping), documentation (wireframes, specification writing), and user testing.

As part of a cross-functional team, you will collaborate with other designers and use qualitative and quantitative data to make informed, design-related decisions. You should be proficient at converting requirements into practical product features and have a high standard for visual design execution.

Functions:

  • Design user interfaces and process flows using iterative design techniques incorporating findings from user interviews, usability testing, and other forms of requirements discovery

  • Produce user personas, user stories, prototypes, wireframes, interaction and design specifications

  • Run ad-hoc usability tests with end users when needed and communicate research findings
    Facilitate design review sessions with key stakeholders with the goal of advocating for the user needs

  • Engage with development to understand platform capabilities, communicate design goals, adapt and verify designs through the agile software development process

  • Create and maintain UI guidelines and visual standards

  • Identify opportunities for product or feature enhancements

  • Remain up-to-date on industry trends, market conditions, and consumer preferences

  • Iterate existing designs to meet industry or consumer needs

You Have:

  • 1-3 years’ experience as an information architect, interaction designer, product designer, user experience designer, and/or usability engineer

  • Proven knowledge of design aesthetics and solid understanding of User-Centered Design principles

  • Sharp attention to detail

  • Proficient in design tools, specifically Figma. Experience with other design tools such as Sketch and the Adobe Suite is beneficial

  • Understanding of cross platform, browser, and device design strategies

  • Relative experience with HTML/CSS/JavaScript. While it is unlikely you will code, having knowledge of how Front-End code works is beneficial

  • Knowledge of responsive design techniques and challenges

  • Experience in contributing to a design system

  • Time and project management skills
