Job Description:

Looking to accelerate your design career? Want to own the design of global products and sites? See your designs through to launch and beyond? Make a real difference to customers and communities? 

You’ll join a small team of talented, innovative, fresh-thinking designers whilst being part of a wider global community of analysts and developers. 

You’ll take an active role in the interaction design of our products, with the freedom to do the best work of your career. 

Your first 12 months will look something like this:
Set up your new MacBook Pro and Wacom tablet if you’d like one. 
Discover the breadth and depth of the products and sites you’ll design for - on web, tablet, and mobile. 
Immerse yourself in our Design Language, define improvements, and get them published. 
Iteratively design end-to-end experience for big-ticket product features. 
Get to know our customers and users by name - meet entrepreneurs over dinner, and visit some incredible small businesses. 
Engage with talented developers to make your designs reality, and collaborate on our Development Framework, Carbon. 
See your designs reaching hundreds of thousands of users across 7 countries. 
Continue your self-development – with dedicated learning days, and funding to attend or speak at conferences and meetups. 
Make a difference to the communities we live and work in with 5 volunteer days every year. 
Enjoy benefits like flexible holiday allowances, a great pension, a healthcare cash plan, and join the onsite gym if you like. 

We’re interested in talented interaction designers who deliver effective solutions, and well as delightful experiences. If you’re ambitious enough to deliver the best in the market, but humble in understanding the real life needs of users, step this way! 

Key Responsibilities:
Competitor analysis, definition of the user model, discovery of business rules and constraints, collaboration with analysts. 
Design of layout patterns, UI elements, navigation patterns, information architecture. 
Divergent and convergent, iterative design, backed up with rationale and critique.
