  • Commission and conduct qualitative and quantitative research.

What we're looking for:
You have deep experience conducting research and providing insights to use for ideation and to assist product owners in prioritisation and decision making, identifying and planning projects, roadmaps, and establishing a focus on customer outcomes over feature output to deliver digital experiences that we will be famous for. You may also have extensive UI capabilities and experience working with design systems. Bonus if you have experience contributing to or building a design system

Since November, Virgin Australia has been working on a plan to set itself up for future success. The Group has worked to ramp up flying, simplified its organisational structure, confirmed plans for 25 new 737 aircraft to renew and grow the fleet, and signalled deeper investment in technology and customer experience.
Within digital ecommerce and distribution, a whole strategy and team capability is being built from the ground up, with a combination of BAU and blue-sky opportunities in the pipeline.
It could be described as a ‘business as usual foundation with a start-up heart and re-imagined playful streak that’s ready to delight our guests and customers once more.’ The team consists of several UX and Digital Designers working across several digital product squads.
This is an exciting time to join a growing team - we'd love to hear from experienced Senior/Lead UX Designers
