Serato is one of the world leaders in audio software for professional DJs and musicians. World renowned artists such as Fatboy Slim, DJ Snake, Major Lazer and Mix Master Mike (of the Beastie Boys) love our products and perform with them on a regular basis.
This is an intermediate design role where you will help us design the user interface for our music software products. Sitting in the Design and UX team, your job will be to provide UI concepts and designs that help the product team deliver software that looks amazing. While the main focus is making stuff look great, the ideal candidate will also have a good understanding of UX principles, and know that function comes before fashion when it comes to UI. You need to be comfortable churning out lots of different concepts, but understand working within the tight constraints that come with designing a functional UI.
-Create beautiful UI designs for our world leading music software products, from concept stage, mockups, wireframes, and lots of final polish
-Creating design style guides
-Design both the Interactive and Visual elements of UI
-Work closely with the UX / design and product teams, iterating on findings from research and requests from stakeholders
-Be a core member of the UX / UI team contributing to research, user testing and summarizing your findings.
Who you are
-You want to design software that is used by professional DJs and musicians from around the world. This means continuous refinement of big
complex products, rather than getting a new project each week.
-You’ve had 2-3 years of experience designing digital products in an agile software environment.
-You’re happy delivering things to tight specifications, but can also go crazy and provide a bunch of different ideas and designs when appropriate.
-You take pride in your finished work, but don’t mind showing your working, sharing unfinished concepts and ideas.
-You have a good understanding of current UX frameworks and best practices.
-You have a design or other relevant qualification.
At Serato our culture is highly prized and so finding someone who will integrate well with the team and company, sharing our values of having fun whilst working hard and continually improving. If you love software and music and want to work in a high performing team at a company with a great culture, this could be the role for you.
Isn't the whole point of this article to parody exactly that? I.e. the idea that many in the industry don't know what they're doing, which leads to all the flashy/fishy practices described in the article?
Not wanted in that agency were you? Cheer up.
Awful. Badly written, terribly made, no idea. I have no idea why you would PR this level of work.
Agency Wnk. The cold hard experience of being agencyside provides an understanding that most staffers even C level ad-types have no clue what they're doing.
It's good that. …and then there's the D.I.Y. client - who'll cobble it together with a host of bit players from social media mavens to content creators with iPhone Xs (seriously, I listened to a client bang on recently about ...

Who’s it for: WorkSafe by Assignment Group.
Why we like it: Hilarious but serious, this ad from WorkSafe elicits both laughter and pensive thought as fictional commentators ‘Pat Silverwood’ and ‘Joe Munro’ give a play-by-play of workers actions. And while not all workplaces feature a pair of commentators armed with mics to make themselves heard, it's hoped the enjoyable campaign that will encourage Kiwis to ‘Use Your Mouth’ and speak up in the workplace.
Who’s it for: Icebreaker by Motion Sickness
Why we like it: Motion Sickness has blended storytelling with an ad in this beautifully shot video for Icebreaker. While the connection with Icebreaker isn't obvious from the start, as Riley Elliott's mulls over what makes him so passionate about sharks, we learn a lesson about facing and embracing fear—and it's one that suits the nature of the outdoor adventure brand.
Who’s it for: G.J. Gardner Homes by 99
Why we like it: Personalising a large company like G.J. Gardner Homes can be tough. But the company has done a nice job of giving local workers a face. Going from Queenstown to the Manawatu, franchisees speak about themselves, how they work and how they are involved with, and support, the local community around them. It's a good way to get to know those who are responsible for bringing to life the homes for G.J. customers.
