UX Designer

Information Technology | Singapore, Singapore | Full Time

Job Description

Dubbed “The Most Innovative Streaming Video Service” by Forbes, Rakuten Viki is the world’s leading platform for Asian entertainment and culture, where tens of millions of people watch their favorite TV shows, movies, and influencer videos and engage with the content. With more than a billion words translated into 200+ languages by a community of avid fans, Viki brings global entertainment to fans everywhere.

Soompi, a subsidiary of Rakuten Viki, is one of the biggest global K-pop news sites and the longest-running fandom community. From innovative engagement features to original content and social shopping, Rakuten Viki and Soompi are pushing the boundaries of user engagement and social viewing.

We’re looking for a Product Designer to join our UX & Design team. This position is full-time and based in Singapore. At Viki, we believe that empathy is key to creating meaningful products and experiences for our users. Hence, UX research is an integral part to our design process from start to end.

One of the priorities for Viki this year is to improve our users’ experiences. You’ll be designing new holistic experiences; we’ve accrued design debt over the years, while at the same time the users’ needs have evolved as well. As such our products need to evolve and grow more. You’ll be helping to shape the discussions on what good user experiences will be like for our users, designing products that our users love to use not only because of the content we provide, but also because of how our products work and fit into their lives.

We are a lean team and as such a challenge will be to juggle multiple projects and products at the same time across multiple platforms (Web, iOS, Android, TV apps). You’ll be working closely with Product, Business and Marketing teams and Engineers to understand, research and translate requirements into products.
