Fjord is a design and innovation consultancy. We create useful, effective, and desirable digital services that people love. We help the world’s leading businesses make complex systems simple and elegant with the power of design. Founded in 2001, Fjord employs a diverse group of over 800 design experts in twenty two global creative hubs.

Our work environment appeals to self-motivated, flexible team players that have great interpersonal skills and lots of curiosity. We believe in peer relationships rather than hierarchies; in teams rather than lone thinkers. Fjord is all about an open collaborative approach and we think it is the key enabler for us to deliver innovative, ground-breaking work

As a designer, you:

•Help evolve the practice across the studio with highly collaborative and inclusive style, while liaising with leadership across Fjord to establish best practices, evolved processes, and cultivated communities.
•Assume responsibility for overall quality of the team’s work across the studio while capably mentoring others in a range of design research approaches.
•Own client relationships from design research standpoint, building the value and impact of design research through key client relationships and selling in the work.
•Discover growth opportunities in the studio and across the discipline with other studio leaders.
•Present at conferences as a Fjord discipline leader.

Working together, we will:

•Have specific opportunities to use our craft to make a difference in people’s lives.
•Engage in ongoing activities that enable us to learn, practice, and evolve our discipline.
•Collaborate on products and services that change the way our clients do business.

We are a family of Fjordians. Our living culture and borderless playground provide us with space to flourish. Thanks to a unique partnership with Accenture, we’re able to do work that changes the world.

Fjordians have simple core values. Solve collaboratively. Be curious. Use feedback. Assume 100% responsibility. Focus on desired outcomes. Fail forward. Contribute proactively. These values inform everything we do, and we’re always looking for kindred spirits.

We believe there is nothing more important than creating products and services that will positively impact the world we live. Keeping the human at the center of our design ensures that impact. Be part of a team that is curious, driven by empathy, and relentless in our pursuit of meaningful and impactful design.
