Senior UX Designer

Join Ducky's agile team to deliver a groundbreaking carbon footprint calculator for Norwegian municipalities. Rarely has there been a shorter way from idea to testing and a huge environmental impact.

Ducky is developing an automated citizen carbon footprint calculator together with Asplan Viak and TietoEvry. This is our biggest investment since Ducky was founded in 2014. We're doing this because we want the largest possible impact on reducing global carbon emissions. If this sounds interesting, read on!

The position

As a full-time UX designer in Ducky, you are a key resource in our design group and in our recently established citizen footprint team. You will help design a web front-end for Ducky's footprint calculator, to be used by municipality environmental managers. Later you will work on tools to reach out to citizens who want to reduce their carbon footprint. 

Preferred start date is October 2020, but this is no absolute. You will take part in agile development and testing over the winter of 2020. Next year you will collaborate closely with project partners and customers to further improve the solution. This team (like any other team in Ducky) has full control to its own resources and deliverables.

You will also join other teams in Ducky. Ducky currently offers services engaging individuals in reducing their carbon footprint. You can read more about this on www.ducky.eco.

A company where everyone is a leader.

We believe that all companies should only exist to meet societal needs. When a company is guided by these needs, the traditional hierarchy is no longer required.

  • We are a purpose driven company

    In Ducky, our common purpose is contributing to a sustainable planet, and as co-workers we trust each other to perform all the tasks on our way because we follow our passion, and not because we are told to do so. We work toward positive societal change every day, and through collaboration we create amazing services and profit used to maximize our social value.

  • A meaningful workplace

    When we started Ducky in 2014 we wanted an organisational structure that in itself impacts the world positively. A model that supports the innovation and creation of real, continuous change favoring a sustainable planet. A workplace that empowers us to follow up on ideas and initiatives we are passionate about. Ducky’s company objectives are important, but more important are the ideas, creativity and dedication of each employee working to achieve those objectives.

Self-managing Organisation

Ducky is a self-managing organisation where hierarchy is replaced with purpose and passion. All co-workers are leaders towards a common purpose!
