It is critical that the Agile UX/UI Designer understands the background and purpose of our business.
TrackMyRisks is a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform that helps businesses manage their risks. By its nature, risk management can be a complex process, which is why many businesses either pay lip service to it or completely ignore the need.
Our aim at TrackMyRisks is to change the way that businesses manage risk by making it as simple and intuitive as possible.
In order to achieve this, it is essential that the TrackMyRisks platform is extremely user friendly and highly intuitive, even for users with low IT skills. Therefore we need an Agile UX/UI Designer who understand the core principles of a user-centred approach to design and development. At all times, the focus must be on achieving the highest possible level of UX, through a simple and intuitive UI.
How we behave and operate as a business is constantly checked against our core values:
Integrity – “stay true”
Everything we do is in the best interest of our customers and the product(s).
Humanity – “be human”
First and foremost, every crisis has a human impact.
Commitment – “get stuff done”
Your problem is our problem and we won’t rest until it’s resolved.
