In this role, you will be part of the XD Lab team at our headquarters in Tokyo.

  • Create clarity: Visualize complex ideas into understandable concepts that evolve and enhance the product and service experiences
  • Bias towards action: Help teams prioritize roadmaps and set the strategy
  • Storytelling: Radiate information and celebrate success and failure
  • Be mindful of the process: Keep a critical eye on “how” we work, as well as “what” we are working on, and make improvements

You’ll also…

  • Help plan and facilitate design workshops and help with the logistics of design sessions
  • Operationalize the XD Lab in Tokyo
  • Participate in research efforts to understand customer needs and define opportunities through usability and empathy studies
  • Be an active part of the Takeda innovation network
  • Using Figma or Adobe software to create UI prototypes

  • Helped to organize and plan a few workshops
  • Experience working in highly regulated industries is a plus
  • Experience or understanding of Agile environments
  • Experience working with cross-functional teams
  • Business level English/Japanese

During the interview:

  • We may want to get to know you better, so there may be some things we do together, like play with LEGO, but there will be no homework or “design exercises”
  • We love questions, so please have plenty
  • What are your career goals and aspirations? What do YOU need from this job?
