UX Designer

The Role

We are looking for a designer to join our in-house product development team. Previously we have worked with freelance designers and agencies. As the first designer in our team, you will have the opportunity to demonstrate your creative flair from day one. 

The role will be varied, with no two days the same: you will be wire-framing new product features, providing eye-catching and enticing content for email marketing and social media campaigns for our clients, pushing Sensible Development’s brand and visual identity, producing new identities/sub-brands for our clients’ auction sites.

You will be in the thick of it helping us make decisions. You will see how we take ideas from a range of sources, take part in discussions on how best to turn those ideas in to reality and then help us implement them. We work on a democratic basis and will always listen to your ideas. 

You will be someone who is a true creative and has their finger on the pulse of modern digital design. You will have an interest in creative and new ideas for both websites and digital marketing campaigns and good knowledge of how websites work and how users interact with digital technologies. 

We are looking for someone to grow with us and develop a set of skills complementary to our existing team and help us grow as a company.
