A bit about the gig:

As a Product Designer, you’ll be designing internal tools for a global retail organisation. Drawing from an existing design system to explore and document UI solutions.

Working closely with project managers, UX Designers and engineers as part of an agile team you’ll need to balance user and business needs along with engineering limitations into everything you produce. Being comfortable presenting your work is key as you will need to be able to rationalise and communicate your understanding of these needs and limitations to the team and stakeholders when presenting your solutions.

While there is a design system to work with, there is scope to push this and propose new UI elements or additions to the component library where relevant.

Slight emphasis on UI in terms of responsibilities, however any examples in your portfolio of research (establishing user needs), journey maps, wire-frames and testing are a huge benefit.

Note: Internal tools or complex software experience will also be a huge benefit but not a requirement.
