UX Designer

The opportunity

We’re looking for a talented end-to-end UX Designer to drive forward our product, supporting our mission to humanise online decision making and to drive incremental sales for our major retail partners.

This is a great opportunity for a skilled UX Designer to get stuck into a broad range of client and product challenges. You’ll be working with a passionate, cross-functional team to deliver iterations to our current product, as well as driving innovative ideas for our future opportunities.

Our product is a playground for experimentation, and you will help to steer our tests to constantly improve. You will use your research skills to ensure that the customer is at the heart of our longer term strategy.

We are grounded in the principles of consumer psychology which helps us guide consumers to make difficult buying decisions with confidence. As the global trend in retail continues to shift from the high street to the web, we are uniquely placed to help brands adapt to changing buying behaviours.

What we are looking for:

  • 2+ years as a UX practitioner, ideally within a digital product based environment

  • Able to demonstrate your approach to UX for a given task or project

  • Empathy for customer needs, but can also consider technical limitations and business goals

  • Not fixated on beautiful visuals but passionate about solving problems

  • Proven ability to drive data-led optimisation within a digital product

  • Experience of user testing and user research

  • Comfortable planning and running UX workshops

  • A background of working closely with both developers and designers

  • Willing to be versatile and adaptable, working across a broad range of projects and managing your workload wisely

  • An innovative mindset, ready to tackle a variety of opportunities

  • Confident communicating ideas to the wider business and our partners

Your responsibilities:

  • Working alongside our product owners and visual designers to create groundbreaking digital solutions

  • Conducting usability tests and user research

  • Designing new features and optimisations for our products and internal tools

  • Developing ideas that improve user engagement and have a positive impact upon conversion

  • Building interactive product prototypes

  • Working with developers to ensure feasibility

  • Planning, creating and facilitating UX workshops
