Senior Product Designer for Automotive Consumer Platform Shaking Up the Industry

Senior Product Designer for Automotive Consumer Platform Shaking Up the Industry in Central London – £60,000 + equity

The Client

My Client is revolutionising a previously complicated market, and bringing it into the 21st century! With no competition, this well-backed start-up is leading the way in placing the user in the seat of power when purchasing a new car.

Their whole product is built around the user, and as a result they are reaping the benefits. Since starting in 2013 with 3 people, they are now 100+ strong, and still growing! They are backed by investors from amazing start-ups such as Lyst, Shazam, Betfair, and although they have sky-rocketed in size, they still have retained their close-knit start-up vibe. They have the best of both worlds- an established feel, but small enough for each person to have a measurable impact and ability to interact with users at all stages.

Design is a core part of their product, as their Creative Director is a co-founder. They are planning to set the foundations for an amazing product team, and designers will have a huge impact on the future of their offering.

The Role as Senior Product Designer

This exciting Product Designer role will encompass complete end-to-end UX and UI design. My client is working on multiple projects on responsive web and mobile. This is an amazing opportunity to be involved with EVERYTHING, to be hands on and immersed in every design detail.

The challenge My Client faces is users being unaware that their service is available. Because of this, every design decision must be transparent and informative to the user, and must gain and retain their trust. They are constantly exploring how they can better their approach, and get repeat business and referrals. Each day will be focussed on constantly improving and innovating their product, and you will be given the ownership to explore the best possible solutions for users.

The Candidate

First and foremost, you will love creating intuitive visual designs and interactions for both mobile and web, and always looking forward to innovate their offering for their users. You will rely on your stellar understanding of UI and UX principles to do this, as well as your amazing communication and strategy skills.

As well as these attributes, you will also have the following:

  • An informative portfolio outlining and showcasing your UX and UI skills
  • Ability to communicate how data informs your design decisions
  • Ability to know what limitations you face, and how to work around them
  • An ambitious, strategic and entrepreneurial mind frame. You will be able to step back and visualise a future for the product- and then work to achieve it.
