We are currently seeking a curious and empathic UX Designer with a demonstrable history of bringing design thinking insight to deliver compelling user experiences. 

The role sits within the Product organization responsible for the content production and customer experience driving the world's most trusted news organization, Reuters News.

As a UX Designer you will work in an agile environment as part of a global cross-functional team including engineering and product owners, as well as users and senior stakeholders across the business.

  • Create user-centric, accessible user experience principles, patterns and components for the digital design system underpinning our new Content Production systems.
  • Develop and maintain the Design System for the appropriate design medium (currently Figma and Storybook) and keep all documentation up to date.
