Want to become part of building the fastest growing platform for coordinating action on global challenges?


About Acter

If we are going to solve some of the most pressing challenges of our time, we need to become much better at organising ourselves.

With Acter, we are on a mission to fundamentally change the way that we work together through a new digital infrastructure that helps people, organisations and networks accelerate their impact.

Acter enables overview, collaboration, knowledge sharing, impact measuring and includes all the essential tools needed to connect and enforce the change and transformation towards a better world.

We are currently expanding our team and are looking for a skilled and value driven UX/UI designer to join us in realising out vision.


Current status

During the last two years we have managed to build a strong community, validate our concept, and establish partnerships that have allowed us to secure further funding for further development and scaling of Acter.

This includes taking our design and visual presence to the next level, by streamlining the user experience and user interface.

For this we need you!


Who you are

  • You are able to comprehend abstractions and navigate in large complexity, but most importantly you are capable of boiling it down to a simple, elegant and beautiful user experience without losing the essence.

  • You have a big drive for creating change and are looking for an opportunity to leverage your skills as a UX/UI designer to make an impact.

  • You are experienced with web and mobile applications and familiar with Figma, Sketch or similar. Also, you have experience with component-based design

  • You have experience with tools/libraries like Storyboard and Material-UI.

Primary area of responsibility

Overall you will be bridging the gap between the research team and development team, with primary focus on developing the Web and App design. This include:

  • Together with the research team, translate insights from our users into the UX and the UI of the platform.

  • Design all UI material for the development team (Layout, components, styleguide etc.)

  • With potential to also co-create Acter's overall visual identity.


Your personal qualifications

  • You are passionate about changing the status quo and make a true impact in the world.

  • Willingness to go the extra mile and have a can-do attitude.


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;-)

Financial expectations

  • As of now, being a start-up we are not able to directly compete with market standards. As such, if the pay-check is what is the most important to you, 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.

Acter

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!
