Kuudes.
It means “sixth”

So, do we have a sixth sense?

Yes, we do. Our exceptional insight is based on our in-depth Informed Consumer research, combined with our multi-disciplinary expertise and wide experience. Really, it all started on the sixth floor, and the name stuck.

Kuudes is a truly independent and international insight and design agency, with offices in Helsinki and Stockholm. Since 2004, we have helped our clients innovate their strategies and brands with unique consumer insight and creative thinking.

Our open positions

Designers / Helsinki or Stockholm

Kuudes is looking for design geniuses to join the team. You are an experienced graphic designer with mountains of enthusiasm, experience and a wide creative range.

Service Designer / Helsinki

Kuudes is a pioneer in insight-driven service design in Finland and internationally. We co-create innovative concepts and business models with our customers and target audiences – and we make them reality, not slide shows.

The right candidate is passionate about target-oriented design and concrete results – not boasting about methods. At Kuudes your work will come to life in e.g. new customer-orientated service models, omnichannel retail environments, or even a complete shopping centre.

You have at least 3 years of hands on experience with service design projects in a client organisation or as a consultant. You feel comfortable in both digital and physical environments. You are focused on the mastery of service design methods and processes. Some background with visual design is a big plus. We are also interested in hearing about your role and experience in facilitating workshops. Due to the nature of our projects, we expect you to be fluent in both English and Finnish.

We appreciate team players that are open-minded and imaginative with the passion to create meaningful concepts that stand out, create powerful customer experiences, and deliver on commercial objectives. Business thinking is highly valued.

At Kuudes you will be part our multidisciplinary Nordic design team. You will work with brand strategists, architects and other creatives. Kuudes service design is always part of a greater concept, which is why it’s important you can think openly beyond your own area of expertise.

A key part of your job is to inspire the client and your colleagues. You will help them see new possibilities, make brave decisions and be an agent of change for our customers.
