The client

This client has recently released its first ever product, a capture the flag and training delivery platform. Their mission is to build amazing digital products that make a difference, their team are extremely busy and are looking for a Digital Product Designer to join them on a Permanent basis and to help make this product, and future products look amazing.

This particular client has a small design team but exists as part of a much larger team (their parent company has over 30 people within the team). As the Digital Product Designer, you will be working alongside an established development team and directly for one of the co-founders (who is also an experienced designer).

The role

They are currently looking for someone with great front-end UI/UX design skills, who has a keen eye for interface design and a strong knowledge of design fundamentals generally.

Key responsibilities:

  • Working with the co-founders and dev team lead to help drive product ownership and
    roadmapping, helping decide on product priorities.
  • Taking elements from the roadmap and turning them into fully specified features with accompanying user stories, wireframes and prototypes, then into coded UI designs ready for implementation.
  • Overseeing and improving our custom design system for the product
  • Working with the co-founders to plan for future product ideas.

The candidate

You’ll have a passion for creating amazing user experience’s and solving complex problems with elegant solutions that prioritise clarity and purpose. You’ll also need to be comfortable writing high quality, semantic, modular, maintainable code – strong HTML and SCSS experience are a must (although they do have a front-end developer you’d work with on the more complex elements). Experience with Git for version control, building or working within custom design systems and frameworks, as well as a good understanding of accessibility, responsive design and browser testing, are all things they will be looking for.

As part of a small cross-functional team you will need solid communication skills, the ability to collaborate with technical and non-technical people, as well as the capacity to work steadfastly under your own direction. You’ll help play a role in product ownership, roadmapping and working with the senior team to decide on product priorities.

You will be working remotely, but they do have an amazing office in Ascott-underWychwood, which you will have to attend a meeting at once a month.
