UI / Product Designer for Storytelling Start-Up

UI / Product Designer for Storytelling Start-Up Ed Tech Product in London – £50,000 - £60,000

This is a rare opportunity to join a well backed start-up at a pivotal point in their growth, currently going through Series A funding & with upcoming expansion into Asia and the US.

The Client

I am currently working with a well backed Product Start-Up who are currently opening up a whole new avenue of innovative digital products.  They have created a revolutionary tablet and web product aiming to connect generations and share stories through the power of technology – strengthening family bonds & sharing experiences and knowledge.

They are well financially backed with a great advisory board – with no current competitors on the market! Currently they are looking to add the final member to their ‘core’ team and are expecting to scale further in the next 6 months.

Currently the product is tablet and web based but there is scope to push this out also to mobile over the next couple of months – as well as rolling out the product into both the USA and Chinese markets.


The Role as UI / Product Designer

The role

As Product Designer you will work end to end, from the UX to the Visual Design and play a key role in shaping the product right down to a feature innovation level. You will be the sole designer at this early stage however there are plans to scale over the next 6 months. You will lead the design side of the product reporting into the Product Manager in a flat hierarchy.

Currently they have an MVP product out to market and the product is at a crucial stage in its development – providing a huge opportunity for you to come in and take on real ownership with plenty of room to make it your own.

They have lots of exciting ideas in the pipeline for product features that have been validated by early stage user research & they need a talented designer to help them to take new ideas from concept stage to build and ultimately final delivery. Ultimately you should be passionate about creating visually stunning but highly functional experiences for your users.


The Candidate

You should be highly ambitious to grow and lead a team, fired up and able to communicate your design ideas whilst championing the needs of the user.
