Promotes the Nokia brand by creating product design for future disruptiuons with the Chief Technology Office (CTO), as a part of Advanced Design. Creates product design. Incorporate software and hardware features into product design. Differentiate the products for various market segments. Analyses and approves new materials to be used for products.

Main Responsibility Area:
Explore & Create - Should be comfortable operating in uncharted territory: choosing from a broad selection of possibilities, starting from scratch, evaluating what works and what doesn't, pressing on if things seem promising, turning back if a path turns out to be uninteresting.

Improve & Adapt - Our software is one our biggest assets. We want to take advantage of the momentum we gather when launching new work to learn from our audience and adapt our products accordingly.

Integration - Drive the integration of the UI/UX design work into the software UX platform. Be the key engineer helping to translate the UX experience into code.

Deliver - we like to do and experiment but we're in the business of making things. We want people to envision, concept, develop and execute. Making the idea into a tangible product.


You've worked on software that people use. You can show us code that you wrote, or interfaces you designed, or preferably both.

If you're a programming specialist, you've worked closely with designers before and know how to ask for help with things and how to work with a visual designer's direction. You're able to understand and translate design work into software code.
You're ready to work alongside other engineers to achieve results that are greater than you could achieve alone.

If you're adept at networked application development and technology integration, we want to hear from you too. We hope you love reading esoteric network specifications and reverse engineering protocols and building tools to help data flow. You wonder how systems
might scale and how to design those systems for unexpected behaviours and serendipitous discoveries. You're the key enabler to help us translate our best in class user experience design into our new coming products.
