DesignOps (f/m/d)

We at Yara are part of a global network, collaborating to profitably and responsibly solve some of the world's key challenges - resource scarcity, food insecurity and environmental change.

About the Unit

Yara aims to be the crop nutrition company for the future and is leading the development of sustainable agriculture and digital tools to contribute to solving global agricultural challenges. We have a worldwide presence with sales teams in ~150 countries and around 17,000 employees.
Drawing on over a century of crop nutrition experience, Yara established the Digital Farming unit – now Digital Ag Solutions (DAS) – 4 years ago to explore how technology could be used to impact farmer livelihoods and productivity. Today, DAS has built products for smallholder and professional farmers, retailers and other farming ecosystem stakeholders across Asia, Africa, the Americas and Europe.

DesignOps is the key to scaling digital product design teams with more efficiency. As companies mature and invest in design, they need to operationalize workflow, hiring, alignment between teams, and more. Thus, designers can focus on design work while someone else takes care of the rest.

We are looking for a UX professional with a passion for organizing, streamlining, and coordinating, and who can bring DesignOps experience to our growing team.

Important: We're able to offer the role in our locations in Berlin, Sao Paolo, Bangalore or Singapore. Note, the company is not able to provide relocation to the candidates living outside these cities. 

As part of a centralized UX team, you will

  • Together with the Design Ops lead, work on defining the way we operate and structure the function of Design.
  • Actively engage designers to comply with design tools, principles, processes and standards set for the design function.
  • Measure, implement, and drive changes to make sure designers are working at optimum effectiveness.
  • Use the available systems and platforms to share design assets and templates, to ensure consistency in design work across Yara.
  • Collaborate closely with design leadership and senior contributors to define, document, and operationalize processes. This includes defining and keeping up-to-date documentation of how the Design team works, as well as how to work with all disciplines of the team.
  • Evaluate and implement new tools with designers, writers, researchers, and cross-functional partners to solve for our growing need to collaborate holistically across the organisation.
  • Regularly touch base with other stakeholders to get a pulse of their pain points and together help set up solutions and processes that eliminate those.
  • Champion the good practices inside of the design function and enforce constant improvement.
  • Help build ways to explain how we work and the value we add in order to build presence internally and externally.

 

Who you are

 

  • You have a minimum of 5 years of experience as a UX/UI or Product Designer.
  • You have experience with operational topics inside of a design/UX team.
  • You are an excellent communicator: this role benefits from negotiation skills, as the act of evolving and changing long-held organizational methods and practices, requires a lot of convincing.
  • You can shift from big picture to tactical easily: You can go from overseeing the entire design process to being involved directly in specific project work.
  • You are proactive in resolution: we need a doer that makes things happen. 
  • You are a good listener: we dedicate quite a bit of time to reach out to the team and other stakeholders to be able to understand the problem correctly.
  • You have a curious and experimental mindset: the role requires looking out for new ways of doing things.
  • Comfortable with Figma, Miro, Confluence, Jira.
  • You have excellent English communication skills both written and verbal
