YOUR ROLE AS A DESIGNER IN AN INNOVATION LAB
As a Designer at La Victoria Lab, you will have the opportunity to work on a diversity of projects that aim to rethink Intercorp's core businesses through a human-centered design approach. You will constantly be wearing different hats, from designing and running experiments around new solutions for the group, to coaching business teams on new ways of work, and interacting with key stakeholders.
As a Designer, you are a lifelong learner and digitally curious. You have understanding of the design process and design skills that allow you to communicate your ideas effectively. You combine imagination and vision with a tenacious ability to get things done. Your curiosity means you’re always looking for relevant references and building on your team’s insights.
What you bring
- You have 0-3 years of professional work experience in fields related to design, eg. product design, strategic consulting, digital product management, etc.
- You are comfortable in all stages of the design process, from research to prototyping, but you enjoy it more when you are getting your hands dirty.
- You are a hands-on thinker who likes to make things happen.
- You are able to produce prototypes and experiments fast, and listen to feedback to improve on your ideas.
- You have experience working with design and prototyping tools such as Adobe Suite, Figma, Sketch, Marvel, and Google Suite.
- You are highly adaptable and comfortable in ambiguous and ever-changing contexts
- You are able to design and lead usability tests with users.
- You are assertive when proposing new ideas, but you can also leave your ideas behind.
- Ability to discuss and defend your ideas fluently in both Spanish and English (English is the official language of La Victoria, Lab).
What we offer
- A mission-driven organization. Intercorp is intently focused on a single ambitious dream: to create the next generation of modern services for Peru’s middle-class families.
- A tangible impact. While most innovation consultants struggle to see a fraction of their work reach the market, we are gratified to see almost all our designs being used by real people, because of a single reason: innovation at Intercorp is strongly sponsored by our shareholders.
- A learning springboard. Our teams work across a wide portfolio of industries – which is probably our greatest asset for continuous learning – but we also learn from conferences and inspirational trips all around the planet, as well as from best-in-class partners such as IDEO.
- A culture of autonomy. We cultivate a virtuous circle of trust and empowerment, which begins with our extremely rigorous hiring process.
- A sense of community. We only work with folks who have huge hearts and a great sense of humor.
