User Experience

Senior Product Designer

Comparison Platform

One of the most recognisable brands in the country with a global reach looking for a Design System Expert!

The client

These days, the typical response to “what’s the culture like” usually goes something like this…

“Team-orientated, collaborative with a great family vibe. We also have bean bags and free drinks on Friday”

Sound familiar?

If like me, ‘drinks on Friday’ isn’t what makes a great culture, you’ll be pleased to know this company has way more to offer. This is how they described their culture:

  • 4% bonus per annum
  • Incredibly charitable
    • Company has a yearly target to give back. Previous examples include marathon running to raise money, travelling to Zambia to help build schools for communities
    • Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) days – partner with local charities to raise money and awareness
  • Mental Health awareness and well-being groups
  • LGBTQ+ advocates
  • Team events such as Darts, The Crystal Maze, Cocktail Making, Breakfasts
  • 6 weeks of working anywhere in the world!

If that’s not culture then I don’t know what is!

Who they are?

This is one of those huge household UK names – everyone knows them and they’ve become one of the top platforms in the country giving users the best options for insurance, energy/utilities, broadband, digital TV, loans, credit cards, ISA’s and more.

The team set up?

One of the core functions within the business is Customer Experience – within this you have teams in User Experience, User Research and Optimisation.

All teams include access to UserZoom, on-site usability lab facilities with eye tracking and powerful analytics tools.

  • Other half works like an internal agency model, taking briefs and working through them
