UX and Service Design

UX Designer

Sports App

Working within sports but with a link to betting, you'll be part of a strong Product Team with other UX Designers, UI Designers and a Researcher.

The client

These guys have a massive global reach with millions and millions of views to their site/app each month! They offer an array of sports consumption information with a focus on results. Their aim is to become your 1-stop-shop for everything sports related from results, betting, news, facts and tv.

You’ll be part of a strong Product Team with other UX Designers, UI Designers, a User Researcher and a Head of Product Design. All working on various different products within the companies current and future pipeline of services both in the UK and globally.

They have multiple offices but their HQ is in Central London. Once things with Covid get better, the plan is to have people back in the office eventually but even then, there will be flexibility e.g. 2 days working from home per week or similar.

There is obviously a link to gambling/betting, so you’ll need to be ok with this also.

They also provide some great benefits which include a 10% bonus, private healthcare, pension etc.

*sorry, sponsorship isn’t available however*


The role

They’re looking for a solid UX Designer. Not a hybrid UX/UI or Product Designer, although fine if this is your background so long as you’ve been working as UX Designer more recently.

They want to see evidence of your process within your portfolio, including research/testing through to wireframes, user journeys, prototypes etc.

They have a team of UI Designers already, so you won’t need to produce any of those deliverables although an appreciation for visual design is obviously a given and any capability with UI design or coding is a bonus but definitely not essential.

Key Responsibilities;

  • Take a user-centered design approach and rapidly test and iterate designs with the help of prototypes and testing.
  • Moving seamlessly from whiteboard sketches, paper prototypes, Lo-fi Wireframes to interactive prototypes and Hi-fi Wireframes for a wide range of devices.
  • Work closely with UX, UI designers, product owners and other stakeholders to gather requirements and develop solutions.
  • Balance both business and user needs to produce experiences that solve the need of both the business and user.

The candidate

Key Skills/Experience

  • You’ll need to be into sport to really thrive here – you don’t have to be a season ticket holder but if you at least consume sports media on a daily basis, via podcasts, news sites, television, apps, quizzes, social media, then you’re good.
  • 2 years minimum experience in a UX role
  • Solid knowledge of wireframing software tools like Sketch and Axure or similar
  • Creative in solving problems and not afraid to have your opinion heard
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills and confidence to present designs or prototypes to senior management and directors
  • Experience working on apps
  • Big bonus if worked within gaming or sports before but not essential
