Tamedia is the leading private media group in Switzerland. The digital platforms, daily and weekly newspapers and magazines of Tamedia offer overview, classification and selection. The company was founded in 1893 and employs a staff of approximately 3,400 in Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Israel, Luxembourg and Serbia. It has been traded at the Swiss stock exchange since 2000.
And PUX is the product and UX team within Tamedia. We help some of the biggest Swiss brands to build better products. Now that's a lot of blah. Let's try to explain in depth. Tamedia owns or is invested in many well known companies and brands. Doodle, Homegate, 20Minutes, Ricardo, tutti, Tagesanzeiger, Autoricardo, Jobs.ch and many others. These companies have amazing product teams, but sometimes they need support. Be it a specialist who's focused on growth or research, be it because they need to speed up. And that's where we come in. We are a power team of 12+ UX- and product-people who can swoop in, help, run, manage, research, grow, design, prototype and consult. Even smile. And we only do it for Tamedia-companies and brands and we only do it because we love good products. Was that clear(ish)? Oh, and PUX is a fast growing team, we're in startup-mode. That's why we are looking for a person, who knows the pros and cons of an agency and how to ensure that we are always top-notch in what we do. So if you're slow, if you don't like change or if you like the band U2 - well you know what.
