Want to become part of building the fastest growing platform for coordinating action on global challenges?
With Acter, we are on a mission to fundamentally change the way that we work together through a new collaboration tool that helps people, organisations and communities to freely communicate, plan and coordinate action and share knowledge.
Come join us as we are expanding our team, looking for a highly motivated, skilled and value driven UX/UI designer.
🙋♀️Who you are
You have a desire for making a change and are looking for an opportunity to leverage your skills as a UX/UI designer to make a real and scalable impact.
You have a great understanding of user interface design and a profound interest in how things look and feel.
You are able to comprehend abstractions and navigate in complexity, but most importantly you are capable of boiling it down to a simple, elegant and beautiful user experience without losing the essence.
You value the importance of UX and care for details where they make a difference.
You can see projects through the whole process, from investigating user needs, to ideas to visuals to the finished product and user testing.
You are experienced with designing web and mobile applications and familiar with Figma.
You are excited about the idea of joining a startup, where there is a lot of freedom responsibility and opportunity to shape things early on.
You are able to write your own HTML and CSS.
You have experience with tools/libraries like Storyboard and Material-UI.
👷♀️Primary area of responsibility
As the Lead Product Designer, you will be in complete charge of our webapp, webpage and further down the road, mobile app. This mean improving existing features, rethinking existing UX/UI and designing something totally brand new.
On the UX side you will be in charge of ensuring that we continuously involve our users in the co-creation and co-designing of Acter, ensuring that we at all time base our decisions on real needs rather than assumptions.
On the UI side, you will be in complete charge of the look and feel of the webapp and website, which means taking our current design and visual presence to the next level, by streamlining the user experience and user interface.
To summarize, here is some of the day-to-day tasks that you will be spearheading:
Running feedback loops with our user
Developing ideas with the business team, based directly on user insights
Designing low and high fidelity mockups to test and iterate
Design all UI material for the development team (Layout, components, styleguide etc.)
Collaborating with the development team to ensure succesfull implementation and deployment
Collect and synthesise incoming feedback from users in both quantitative and qualitative ways.
👯♀️What we bring
A kick-ass team. You will be working with an awesome and very diverse team (including activists, social entrepreneurs and early Uber and Microsoft folks)
Influence. You will have major creative freedom and be part of creating the foundation for the future development of Acter.
Equity. If you are the right candidate and find the project interesting, we are open to discuss equity relating to a long term contract.
Central Location. Our office is located right by the water in the heart of Aarhus.
A team culture that strives to find the perfect coffee/beer ratio;-)
It is our ambition that we in the very near future are able to not only pay market wages but even above, to ensure a good life quality for everyone in the team.
As of now however, being a start-up and also bootstrapped we are not able to directly compete with market standards. As such, if the pay-check is what’s most important to you right here and now, this is not the right match.
We are looking for someone who wants to grow with the whole team and who is excited to embark on a journey of building something big and truly meaningful.
🤹♀️Your future team mates
The core team behind Acter, consists of a diverse group of people including social entrepreneurs, activists, and professionals, who all is a part of a shared vision. We are now counting 10 heads and cant wait to welcome the 11th!

The problem today is not that we lack ideas nor solutions to solve global challenges, but that we are disconnected. Disconnected both at a collaborative level and knowledge level – an ironic fact, considering that most people today are connected more than ever through the internet. The problem is that there is no (infra)structure and no clear overview, which has resulted in a fragmented ecosystem of people, groups, organisations and larger movements working in silos. This is not new to anyone, however the question and ongoing challenge is: how do we change this? As of today, it is hard to know who the others are, where to engage as an individual, who to collaborate with as an organisation, or how to coordinate and share knowledge across initiatives working on the same global challenges. With Acter we are changing this, leveraging technology to foster new and smarter ways of collaborating, breaking down silos, creating more transparency, inclusion, engagement, empowerment and above all, action!
