Are you a seasoned designer with a strategic mind-set and excellent communication and facilitation skills?

  • Proficient in sketching, visualizing, prototyping and testing of service solutions in both early and late stages of development, and professional in the use of service design techniques like value proposition, journey mapping, service specification, blueprinting, testing, etc.
  • Up-to-date on the latest techniques/trends/thinking within your field, and ready to share your knowledge and thoughts with both colleagues and clients
  • A problem solver, with ideas that challenge the ordinary, together with the drive –­ and the guts – to bring them to life
  • A master in co-creation and facilitation, embracing user-centric innovation and cross-disciplinary collaboration
  • Someone with a ‘here to help’ attitude, who absolutely, fundamentally believes that we’re better together
  • Fluent in Japanese and English – other languages are a bonus!
