Are you ready for 5G? Elisa is now recruiting 

5G Product Designer

Are you keen to be one of the digital frontrunners? We frankly speaking do not know what the designer will be doing in a few months time, although we can share a great deal of the experimentative processes that are part of the role. However, we can learn something from history: 2G enabled text messages and email; 3G boosted mobile apps; 4G changed the way we consume videos – and all these were disruptive unexpected changes – again we cannot fully predict what will come about with 5G! That is for you to solve.

What will be the killer app for 5G? In this role your job is to experiment and find out as a member of Elisa 5G new services development team. In the first half a year you will run 30-50 experiments and find out a few worthwhile to consider them a viable product. At this point you will make a handover to the next team to scale it a global success.

It is of utmost importance you work in close connection with the many Elisa experts across the organisation, whilst the more you bring a relevant future and 5G orientated designer network of your own to the company, the better. 

In essence, we are looking for an expert communicator, brimming with positivity, warmth, and empathy with a clear customer-centric mentality. We trust you are able to communicate effectively successfully across all levels within the organization, to communicate with partners and internal organisation including C-level executives as also startups. It is of high importance you are trusted by organisation in 5G E2E service design as you will organize workshops and summits related to 5G new service development.
