UX and Service Design

Mid-Senior Product Designer

AR/VR Entertainment

Seeking a Product Designer with a strong understanding of design principles and collaborative skills, to work on a project from scratch in a cross-discipline product team. The opportunity to learn under an esteemed leader with experience at renowned companies in design.

The client

They love storytelling, operating with a lean start up mentality, but with the backing and support of a global agency.  They value working as a team, sharing responsibility for researching and bringing the concepts we create together to life.  Their goal is always towards the customer seeking to understand their needs and how best to realise these through the products they bring to market.

Trust and freedom are core to the way they work and believe that their team will do the best to realise our vision and provide the freedom in which to relax as well as work.

The role

You will be working alongside their team of designers and developers to prioritise and develop new features whilst ensuring the work is focused on the agreed desired outcomes, the product vision and purpose, and fits in with the overall product strategy.

This role will see you working as part of a cross-functional, collaborative product team. They understand that designers come in many different shapes and sizes but above all, they’re looking for:

  • Advocates of a hypothesis-driven, iterative product design process.
  • Collaborative designers who bring teams together to collaborate over the problem solving process.
  • Detail-focused craftspeople who set a high bar for quality in their design artefacts.

The candidate

Familiarity with using and managing Material, Figma or equivalent component libraries and design systems is useful.

Familiarity with different methodologies around shaping and prioritising work is very valuable.

Ability to structure research sessions, conduct interviews and synthesise and communicate the discoveries back to the wider product team to help shape the strategy and tactics of the team is crucial.

You should have a product mentality and be comfortable with all stages of the product lifecycle, from initial experimentation and requirements gathering through to delivery and support. Your past work should show that you are used to working and managing large projects: prioritising work streams, working efficiently and managing your own time, fleshing out creative concepts and effectively working, leading other designers and working with developers to bring everything to fruition to your own exacting standards.

You must have:

  • Experience working within a cross disciplinary team to prioritise work against business goals and product strategy
  • A portfolio with real world examples of projects you helped launch that showcase your design thinking skills, with at least one example of iterative design
  • Designed high quality interfaces and prototypes for your team, supported with UX design artefacts
  • UI design using Figma and prototyping tools for rapid validation
  • Experience developing effective product research methodologies and executing them
  • Ability to communicate and present design output to stakeholders

Ideally also:

  • Understanding of web technologies
  • ​​Experience of Design Sprints and Lean UX
  • Examples of how you validate your design work
  • Evidence of how you influenced live projects through user research
  • Start-up or SAAS background
  • Experience of designing multi-user collaborative applications
  • Experience in the interactive, games and entertainment industry
