Senior UX Designer for Online Marketplace – £40k – £60k

UX Designer for Online Marketplace in London – £40k - £60k

Leading online marketplace looking for an experienced UX Senior who is well versed in Web, iOS and android design to join their rapidly growing team of talented designers.

The Client

My client is a prominent online marketplace community, being the go-to place for buying or selling, and receiving over 23 million visitors to their website every week. Despite being well-established they are constantly evolving as a brand, expanding from the desktop site to iOS and Android apps, which now procure over two-thirds of their total visitors. For this brand digital strategy is key; as is user engagement, and recent investment in machine learning technology has allowed them to build upon their understanding of their customers’ requirements. This relationship with the user is one they constantly seek to nurture and grow by being responsive, and providing a supportive and accessible community where every user is given a voice.

The Role as UX Designer

This role will require you to work in a close-knit team, collaborating with design, product manager and tech team leads in order to cultivate this idea of community within the brand. Your work will be focussed on maintaining and building relationships with existing users, whilst also encouraging brand development by gaining new customers. You’ll be working end-to-end, from concept through to launch, taking your user research and distilling this into meaningful insights to ensure user satisfaction. You won’t just be involved in design, you’ll be instrumental in the development of new product scopes that are going to keep users constantly engaging with the brand.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Working on both a collaborative and independent basis to help define the product vision
  • Delivering sketches, wireframes, user flows and low and hi-fidelity prototypes
  • Designing for desktop, mobile and tablet
  • Constantly refining and improving the design through iterating and testing

The Candidate

An ideal candidate will be someone that is willing to immerse themselves within an established team and motivated to work on a successful community marketplace. You’ll not only bring your experience as a UX designer, but also your ability to learn and adapt, and your eagerness to work on online products.

Candidate attributes will include:

  • Being passionate about design with over 5 years of commercial experience and a portfolio showcasing this experience
  • An ability to operate both autonomously and collaboratively
  • Experienced working with Android and iOS
  • A confident presenter with excellent oral and verbal communication skills

This is a really great opportunity to join a highly creative design team that work on end-to-end experiences. As well as designing, you will be injected into an office that provides a fun, friendly and supportive environment.
