About BB
Bakken & Bæck is a technology-driven design studio working out of Oslo, Amsterdam, Bonn, and London. Building digital products, brands, and businesses, we help ambitious companies identify, explore and respond to new opportunities.
From defining the future home with IKEA to building decentralized platforms with Coinbase; we are in the business of breaking new grounds. As one international team across offices, we have all the skill-sets needed to help businesses adapt to an increasingly complex world.
We’re committed to cultivating a diverse and inclusive workplace where everyone feels comfortable, regardless of their identity, experiences, and beliefs. We want BB to be a place where you can try out new things with the risk of failing, where you can take ownership over your own work without being micromanaged, and where there’s a low barrier for coming up with ideas — no matter your job title or discipline.
Work-life balance shouldn’t be a perk, but a given. We strongly believe in flexibility, knowing that creativity doesn’t always happen between 9 and 5. At BB you’ll be given a lot of freedom, which means managing your own priorities, trying out new things, and working a flexible hours scheme.
About the role
You’ll be responsible for translating early concepts and ideas into engaging and easy-to-use interactions and experiences to help our clients successfully adopt the next computing paradigm. Your role will focus on all parts of the digital design process — from envisioning and defining new experiences with the team and clients, through iterations and fine-tuning of interactions, all the way until the final documentation and implementation.
We’re looking for someone who enjoys creating innovative experiences, keeps challenging themselves to stay up-to-date with technological progress, and loves designing smart and simple solutions for digital products. It’s important to us that you’re a great team player who can collaborate well with developers, other designers, and clients. As an experienced member of the team, you’ll be keen to help designers from other disciplines get started designing for XR.
You will join our growing Spatial Computing team, responsible for supporting and leading immersive projects throughout initial scoping, direction, and execution. From the very first brief to launch and beyond, you’ll operate at the intersection of different disciplines, in close collaboration with the Development and the Brand and Communications teams.

What we're looking for

  • 5+ years of professional experience as an Interaction Designer and/or UX Designer.
  • Experience designing user flows and interactions for complex spatial interfaces. Ideally, you’ve spent the majority of your career designing for AR/VR/XR.
  • Experience as a lead designer, where you have collaborated with other designers and developers and shown the ability to find a balance between time management and complexity.
  • Demonstrable experience across all stages of a project from conception, to rapid prototyping, wireframing, polishing, delivering new experiences and shipping valuable features.
  • Strong communication skills and the ability to articulately explain and document your process, present your work and communicate your design decisions to co-workers and external stakeholders.
  • Proficiency in Figma, and deep knowledge of other tools such as Framer, AfterEffects, and Blender.
  • Hands-on experience working with one or more 3D engines and/or APIs, such as Unity, Unreal, ARKit/RealityKit is a plus.
  • Experience setting up and conducting user tests, and generating valuable insights based on the test results to improve immersive experiences is a plus.

What you can look forward to

  • Doing things together When not in the midst of a global pandemic we like to get together as often as we can across offices. Yearly trips, meetups, parties, and dinners, or working on interesting projects together.
  • Power your own ideas Do you have a project you've always dreamed of? A company you admire, or a problem you are dying to solve? At BB you'll have a say in what projects we take on.
  • Remote when you need We try our best to keep location from obstructing our cross-office collaboration. As long as you have the possibility to come into the office a few times a week (for workshops, social gatherings, etc.), you're welcome to design a hybrid setup that works for you.
  • Parental leave and baby bonus We have designed our very own “baby kit”, which includes a kr 20.000/€2.000 bonus so you can get a head start on your new parental adventures.
  • Keep it healthy We provide an extensive support package that includes solid health insurance, sponsored therapy sessions, access to physiological treatment, and a lot more.
  • Learning Budget You'll get an annual allowance of kr 15.000/€1.500 to use on courses, classes, or conferences - whatever you need to stay inspired and learn new things.
