Here's some examples of the sort of thing you'd be doing day-to-day:

  • Designing a new user interface for a web app
  • Working directly with a client to understand how we can best meet their user's needs
  • Sketching out wireframes, screen maps and user flows as part of a client workshop
  • Providing constructive, actionable feedback on a junior team member's work
  • Reviewing designs for accessibility issues
  • Creating an interactive prototype to test a user flow with a target user
  • Collaborating with a developer to ensure designs are implemented to a high standard
  • Presenting something you've learned back to the team as part of our weekly design chat

  • Care deeply about producing designs that have a positive impact on users
  • Are interested in mentoring junior team members and helping to improve their skills
  • Are proficient at communicating the reasoning behind their work and providing feedback to others
