Hello there 👋
Thanks for your interest in Inex One!
I'm Ana, Head of Product at Inex One. I’ll be reviewing your application if you choose to apply 🙂 . Let's get it straight out of the way: you would be team member #3 in a team that has a UX designer and me. In total, Inex One is made up of almost 20 colleagues, from Singapore to New York. Below you'll find detailed sections on what we think you should know about us before deciding to join us.
This is pretty texty, so feel free to hop down to the sections that interest you most!
The story of Inex One
When our founders Filip, Max, Mehdi, and Josefine started Inex One in Stockholm early 2018, they set out to improve global knowledge sharing. Knowledge (in the form of research reports, access to experts, data etc.) is still hard to come by: it’s expensive, siloed and hard to find. If you have ever wondered why management consultants exist this is one of the reasons - they have access to data that no one else has.
The expert network industry is one of those industries that almost no one has heard of, but still has an enormous impact. In short it’s all about helping organizations get in contact with experts to provide insights and information. It is also an industry with huge margins, lots of inefficiencies and a pricing model (huge up-front contracts) that keeps smaller organizations out. This is where Inex One decided to start.
During the past three years, Inex One has helped organizations small and large come in contact with thousands of experts. We have a small and effective team that believes in working smarter, not harder. It's amazing what a small team of focused and capable individuals can accomplish through effective teamwork. On the Product team, we have few meetings, and most of our work happens on Figma, Slack, and Slab. Everyone is included and can see every discussion or decision they want to contribute to.
Right now we think Inex is really at a sweet spot.
Small enough that every team member can have a significant impact.
Large enough that we can offer a stable working environment, solid project management, and well-defined tasks.
Close to profitability, growing steadily with strong investor backing. We are now focused on growing into a stable and profitable company without additional external investment.
Our product connects organisations doing research with expert networks that are specialised in finding experts in different fields and geographies. We support over 20 expert networks and hundreds of clients, doing dozens of expert calls every day. Our clients come in all shapes and sizes such as consultancies, corporates, PE funds and non-profits. We are proud to have clients on all continents except Antarctica (not yet!).
We have a lot of cool features and functions - core is that we are a platform which makes the workflow of our clients and partners simple, fast, transparent, and efficient.
We try to be pragmatic about product management. Our philosophy is that we are obsessed with our users and we take UX, planning, and user interviews very seriously. For any larger tasks we create working groups consisting of UX, tech and business that shape a feature together before detailed designs and coding begin. We don’t adhere to any specific methodology, most seem geared towards larger companies, but have taken inspiration from agile and shape-up.
About the role
As a Senior UX designer, you create user experiences for thousands of professionals, worldwide. You will work with an experienced in-house team of developers on a clearly-defined product roadmap and be the champion of the user as we implement that roadmap. You will be working across the product end-to-end, that means thinking about our clients, our users, and even internal problems to solve.

30% creating/improving smaller features. Often it's little product changes that can add lots of value. This often involves learning more about user needs in order to come up with the best and simplest solution.
10% visual and marketing content design.
10% internal operational feature improvements.
Your main responsibilities:
Provide UX and design leadership to project teams and the wider business, advocating for user experience, educating the team, and helping the team align around solutions that promote quality, usable experiences.
Design research (user interviews, analysing interaction data, collaboration with tech/sales team) to identify and scope features that help our clients be successful.
Create intuitive and elegant interaction design solutions (wireframes and hi-fi prototypes) that solve complex user problems and drive business results within our design system.
Develop and maintain internal UX processes to adapt to an evolving business.
Lead and facilitate meetings and brainstorming sessions that are organised and productive.
Create visual content for sales presentations, articles, blog posts and other media.
3+ years of experience in design-related field, with an emphasis on user experience, interaction design, or visual design expressed in a portfolio of project deliverables.
Experience as a UX-lead on large feature releases or new product launches.
Strong background in wireframing or prototype generation for design research and development.
Versed in software like Figma (what we use) or experience in other programs like Sketch, XD, etc.
Fluent in English (written and oral).
Ability to partner seamlessly with cross-functional teams.
Ability to work across multiple projects in a fast-paced, agile environment
Understanding of the Expert Network Industry.
A degree in interaction, interface or graphic design.
Great at visual design.
Good analytical and problem-solving skills.
Collaborative, but also able to be creative and self-driven.
Proactive and seeks constructive feedback from cross-functional colleagues at all levels.
Even if you feel you don’t check all the boxes, we would love to hear from you and see how you could take our platform to the next level.
You are a team player who strongly believes that we win and lose together!
You are a self-starter who enjoys problem solving.
You believe that empathy and effective communication are important.
