We are Crunch! A multi-award winning SaaS company based in Brighton with a brilliant team of 160, over 17,000 clients and over 65,000 members of our community. Together, we single-handedly pioneered a complete online accounting solution to empower self-employed contractors, freelancers and micro-businesses in the UK, helping them to grow their business and create the lives they want as part of a powerful community.

We’re seeking a Product Designer to join our Design Team!

This role will collaborate with like-minded designers, our Product, Engineering and Marketing teams in a dynamic and supportive environment - to help distil the Crunch vision and understand not just the what but also the why, all whilst communicating these messages across functions so they are effectively conveyed to our clients.

Drawing on your visual, user interface and interaction design skills, you’ll be able to move from discovery to design with ease, effectively communicating our purpose, interaction, design metrics and motion to Engineering and Product teams, while also understanding the big picture. You’ll develop a deep understanding of the Crunch brand and how it resonates throughout our entire digital experience.

In this role, you will be:

  • Helping to set the vision for the user experience of our products - creating beautiful but practical solutions, and promoting usability and accessibility for our clients.

  • Ensuring a thorough understanding of company-wide product initiatives, the company purpose and vision and department practice in order to deliver high quality design solutions.

  • Confidently communicating design options and presenting them to stakeholders & development teams  in a visually impactful and exciting format.

  • Evolving our design system and promoting a component-driven approach to building new features.

  • Investigating and exploring design best practices, ensuring Crunch keeps raising the bar with our standards.

  • Gathering user feedback through testing, insight and open forum, encouraging users to lead the way so we are constantly validating our designs to ensure they evolve and are adaptable to change.

  • Working with, coaching and mentoring other designers to ensure a common understanding of tasks and duties and consistent completion in accordance with our quality standards.

  • Working with stakeholders and other departments to ensure schedules and tasks are well-planned and communicated.

  • Actively participating in Scrum team processes and their use of Agile principles and methodology.

The essentials:

  • At least 2 years’ experience in a mid-to-senior level Product Designer (or equivalent) role.

  • A portfolio of projects that showcase your design thinking & UI/UX skills.

  • Experience of using design tools such as Figma, Adobe XD or Sketch.

  • Practical project lifecycle experience — in particular, working with Agile teams.

The ‘nice to have’:

  • HND or Degree in Product Design or similar relevant discipline.

  • Coaching and mentoring skills or even leadership experience would be welcome.

  • Front End development understanding and experience, including knowledge of JavaScript.

  • Experience working with remote and in particular nearshore Development teams.

What you’ll get in return:

We’re very proud of our collaborative and inclusive working culture - you’ll be working as part of a fun and vibrant team, with a whole host of fantastic company benefits! These include:

  • 33 days holiday a year (including bank holidays), which increases with length of service - plus an extra half day holiday on your birthday!

  • Private Medical Insurance and Life Assurance

  • Lots of wellbeing support and events across the year; including EAP, access to MyMindPal, in-house personal training sessions, yoga sessions and more!

  • Company funded social events (when we can all meet again!)

Since the beginning of the pandemic, our team has been working from home and thriving in this new way of working - as a company, we will be embracing this in the longer term and are pleased to open this vacancy to applicants from anywhere in the UK. All we need is for you to be able to work from home in a comfortable, private and distraction free environment - with a solid internet connection (a minimum of 10-12 Mbps upload speed). We'll provide you with all the equipment you need to get set up before you start with us, so there's no need to supply your own. 

 

Crunch is committed to equal opportunities in every aspect of our company and the community, embracing and promoting a diverse and inclusive environment for our team members, those who apply to work for us and our client base, without exception.

We believe that the key to our success is our people, we value the contributions and experiences of all who make up our community. Supported by our company policies and procedures, we will take every possible step to ensure that no person will suffer direct or indirect discrimination on the grounds of ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, family or parental status, national origin, age, neurodiversity or disability status.
