Digital, Media & Technology

Brighton and Hove

Closing date: 10/05/2017

Job Description:

Come and join one of the most progressive, exciting and ambitious agencies in Brighton.

Since starting in 2013, Gene has evolved from being a boutique ecommerce agency in Brighton to one of the most effective certified Magento experts in the UK creating and developing some of the most challenging and innovative ecommerce websites and software.

We never wanted to be just another digital agency. Instead of following best practice, we wanted to shape it. We were the first to release Apple Pay for the web on the Magento platform and we have revolutionised Magento’s content management capability with our BlueFootCMS software. As ecommerce partners we are trusted by clients such as PayPal, Braintree, Hornby, Scalextric, Airfix, Gandys, Protein World, Green People and Temple Spa.

Our progressive employee-owned structure encourages a culture where everyone feels empowered, challenged and motivated to succeed. We live by 5 principles; we want to be challenged, we want our work to have purpose, we want to achieve great results, work with people we like and enjoy what we do.

Our clients partner with us because they need a specialist ecommerce agency that can out-think and out-manoeuvre their competitors. An agency that can offer credible hands-on-consultancy backed up with the technical and creative expertise to get things done. They trust us to take a proactive leadership role in managing their online commerce, whilst also being personally involved in the decisions that shape the success of their business.

Enough about us...what about the role:

UX is one of the defining factors that underpins the success of ecommerce websites, it is therefore at the very heart of what we do and plays a critical role for all our projects.

We are looking for an experienced, talented and ambitious UX designer to collaborate with our Creative Director, developers and project teams to produce exciting ecommerce websites and software applications.
We are looking for someone who is immersed in the subject of UX and is an exceptional designer, who keeps up to date with emerging technologies and practices and is confident presenting their work and ideas to all levels of business. We love ideas and we love to innovate, working with our Creative Director you will be instrumental in helping deliver best-in-breed ecommerce and user experience design, and contribute to our creative ideas to help our clients achieve commercial success online.

The role will cover UX/UI design, strategy and planning, analysis, user research & validation (MVT). We want someone enthusiastic, curious and full of ideas and obsessed by what online users and customers really need, and how to create the right experience to get the best results.

This is a small team environment demanding a dynamic and flexible team player, strong interpersonal skills and a business mind.

So why would you want to work for our agency? Well, we are a group of creative, ambitious, talented, hard working guys and girls, single minded in our commitment to delivering the very best in product and service for our customers. GSOH is a must along with being a team player with a can-do attitude, someone with excellent attention to detail, who is well organised, a clear thinker, a problem solver and an excellent communicator.
