What you'll do

As a member of our product design team, you'll be working on the core application, designing new features or improving old ones and collaborating with the development team and our users.

The work is fast-paced, challenging and varied and on any given day you might be:

  • Using pencil and paper to draft rapid lo-fi prototypes for new features or product improvements
  • Refining prototypes in your graphic editor of choice (we like Sketch) and presenting your ideas to the team
  • Coding up functioning prototypes to test workflows with our users
  • Working alongside the engineers to implement features in our Ruby on Rails codebase
  • Pushing your own app updates using Git
  • Digging in and analysing behavioural data to understand how users are using features

Ideally you'll have at least 3-4 years working in an agency, as successful freelancer or as an in-house designer, and can demonstrate:

  • Experience of designing user interfaces for complex applications, translating user requirements into elegant, usable solutions.
  • Knowledge of best practice and techniques in mobile app design
  • Knowledge of best practices with regards to web standards, usability and accessibility.
  • Strong visual and graphic design sense.
  • Good front end development experience including HTML, CSS and Javascript
  • Willingness to work with engineers to implement new features within our website and application frameworks
  • Knowledge of fundamental UX techniques including user testing, wireframing, prototyping, interaction flows, information architecture and more.
  • Experience of, or at least a willingness to learn, our technology stack, including Ruby on Rails and Git
