ChemAxon is currently looking for a talented UX designer with a background in visual design. Over the last year our UX team has grown fast, now with five full time UX and UI designers working on some truly inspiring projects.
Location: Budapest, Graphisoft Park. Our office will move to Váci Greens office park in the fall of 2021.
Essential requirements in a nutshell
We look for an experienced designer with a solid background in interaction or visual design. Our team is multicultural, so you need to speak fluent English and be able to give presentations or hold workshops with non-designers. You should see yourself as an advocate of the users and be able to translate their needs into solutions. You need to be self driven, courageous to innovate, but realistic regarding the feasibility of your ideas.
Just a few expectations
We need team players and people with a positive attitude and an open mind to work in close collaboration with developers and application scientists. You will learn and redefine yourself all the time because our culture is built on change. We don’t have any tool fixation because anything can be learned. Just to let you know at the moment we use Sketch, Invision and Abstract, but feel free to use Adobe Suite or Justinmind.
Nice to have or a dream candidate
We will be very happy to see candidates with experience in B2B software or agile methodology. Experience with big data visualization or data heavy interfaces would help our team solve many of our users’ challenges. On the other hand we would be happy to meet people with an agency background and experience in HCD and innovation to bring fresh ideas to life science software.
If you fulfill all requirements, it’s very likely you don’t even exist, but it doesn’t hurt asking or trying. Anyway if it feels like your dream job, keep reading. It’s just getting started...
ChemAxon is quite unique. Seriously.
Imagine it's like an agile startup, but on a larger scale. When we say flat organization, we mean it. You will have the company trust from the first day and you should be able to make your own decisions and share your feedback constantly. If you see a challenge within the organization you are empowered to change it. Everyone is supportive and eager to help anytime. You are going to have all the resources to develop your professional skills (conference budget, free books, internal training, etc). By the way, we have been building chemistry and biology related products since 1998 with clients from the top 10 pharmaceutical companies.
Quick facts about the actual UX team
We are a multicultural team and we say “jó étvágyat” in 4 different languages. We work as a horizontal team and we have three focus areas:
- Strengthen company-wide collaboration and make design methodologies an integrated part of the culture.
- Strengthen consistency by shifting focus from features to user needs and advocate the importance of the user research-based decisions.
- Planning, conducting and implementing a Design System.
Why work with us
We have a modern office in Buda next to the Danube river, with free coffee, snacks, a pool table and ping pong.

There’s even an option to have lunch cooked at the office once a week. ChemAxon promotes healthy lifestyle, people working here are often attending sport activities, we even have pilates and yoga lessons starting in the morning.
