Head of Design & UX

Cool scaleup downtown Copenhagen



Forecast is building the next generation of intelligent project management software – making the lives of project managers easier at the touch of a button with their machine learning capabilities. They give creatives and project leaders time back from the boring stuff, so they can serve their clients and not spreadsheets.

If you are sick of the corporate rinse and repeat and want to be part of building an engineering organization (the whys, the hows, and then let’s just try this weird idea to see if it works), then this could be your next move!


Forecast is looking for an experienced and passionate Head of Design & User Experience to be a part of their exciting journey in changing Project Management. As Head of Design & UX at Forecast you will be owning the entire design strategy and vision around their platform, leading a team of designers and researchers to create seamless, intuitive, and beautiful user experiences that set Forecast apart from the crowd!


You will be responsible for the overall Forecast brand identity, owning the creative vision for Forecast, and ensuring consistency across how Forecast represents its brand and product. You will be working on improving and creating accessible features that make their platform enjoyable and easy to learn. You will be partnering closely with the VP of Product and CTO driving forward an intuitive design culture with great attention to detail embedded across the organization - setting the bar for excellence!


Your responsibilities…


  • Lead the Design function and UX research as they continue to expand their design practice across their different offices globally. This responsibility spans across both product and marketing e.g., website, brand, and product

  • Partner closely with Engineering and Product leadership, embedding their comprehensive design strategy and vision in every aspect of the product development lifecycle

  • Foster cohesion and collaboration across cross-functional teams, developing practices within Design to improve capabilities and put in place scalable ways of working

  • Empower your teams to work with their own cross-functional product team stakeholders to ensure that design is at the forefront of engineering iteration

  • Develop a design culture that is detail-obsessed - from big product launches to individual pixel perfection - and puts customer value at the heart of their decisions

  • Maintain and build design team processes and ways of working that ensure that all designs delivered are in line with our brand vision and high-quality standards

  • Establish Forecast as a design leader in the enterprise software industry


You will be great in this role if you…


  • Possess excellent leadership- and communication skills and a strong people mindset

  • Hold demonstrated experience in Design (UI & UX) leadership, having set and built design strategy across a business

  • Hold experience building and growing teams - mentoring, coaching, and developing team members

  • Hold experience establishing processes to ensure that good design practices are followed in every part of the product as well as ensuring cohesiveness with external communication e.g. website

  • Have the technical ability to actively bridge gaps between engineering and design teams

  • Have the ability to identify opportunities for organizational processes and operational optimization

  • Have the ability to bring simplicity to complex problems and tie together and communicate how design decisions impact business outcomes

  • Have a growth mindset and openness to feedback

  • Are an agile and creative team builder who is also a cross-functional leader.

  • Think big, get stuff done, and have great social skills!


You will make your mark on an AI platform in a scaleup company that oozes drive, has a great company culture, and professional knowledge sharing with passionate colleagues
