Are you:

  • You'll be there every step of the way - working alongside the engineers to implement features and pushing forward our internal design system.
  • You'll always be looking to drive the product forward - digging into behavioural data to understand how users are using the website and working collaboratively with other designers and colleagues across the business to deliver towards company objectives

You need to show:

  • demonstrable experience working in an agency, as a successful freelancer, or as an in-house designer
  • experience of designing user interfaces for complex applications, translating user requirements into elegant, usable solutions.
  • a deep understanding of the iOS and Android platforms and an ability to lead the team on native patterns and design guidelines.
  • knowledge of best practices with regards to mobile native app design, usability and accessibility.
  • strong visual and graphic design sense.
  • knowledge of fundamental UX techniques including user testing, wireframing, prototyping, interaction flows, information architecture and more.
  • enthusiasm for taking complex problems and simplifying them for end users.
  • willingness to work with engineers to implement new features within our application frameworks
  • strong interpersonal and communications skills, both verbal and written
  • respect for the opinions of others
