Are you passionate about UX? Are you fascinated by user behaviour? Do you thrive on the challenge of delivering experiences that delight customers, fulfil their needs and beyond? Do you believe user experience should be a key driver of change in a business which delivers real value and commercial benefits? If so, then you’d be joining a team of like-minded people who share your passion and drive.

The User Experience Executive will be part of the UX team, which plays an integral role within the business, constantly looking to improve the customer journey, optimise the user experience and introduce innovations onto the site. We work as part of a wider Ecommerce team including a Visual Merchandising, Trading teams and Web Analytics team to identify key areas for improvement and development. 

This role is very proactive, constantly drawing on internal data analysis, competitor research and industry best practice in order to generate ideas that can develop the site and lead to innovation. Our aim is to create an experience that customers find intuitive, engaging and enjoyable to use and as such will want to return to more frequently. We want boohoo to be our customers’ online shopping destination of choice.

Building relationships with all areas of the business and utilising strong communication skills will be crucial in order to deliver changes accurately, in a timely manner and to a high standard. Identifying and involving the key stakeholders for each project will be essential in ensuring requirements are captured and there is a clear understanding of what each change will deliver to the business.

This is a varied role, which requires the continual monitoring of day to day performance so we are able to pinpoint and resolve any user experience issues in a timely manner, whilst also leading your own longer term projects and supporting the UX Manager with bigger business projects that will be crucial in driving the business forward and continuing our phenomenal growth. As such excellent organisation skills, prioritisation and attention to detail will be required to manage your workload effectively.

A wide skill set is needed for this role to ensure we can successfully take the user experience of boohoo to the next level in terms of optimisation, localisation, personalisation and innovative functionality. To do this effectively you will need to be customer centric and truly understand our audience and their behaviours whilst always aligning with business goals and KPI’s.
Utilising a variety of methods including A/B testing and usability research will be necessary to attain this knowledge and to continue evolving with our audience. Excellent knowledge and skills in coding HTML, CSS and JavaScript will be a key skill set for both A/B test campaign builds and communication with developers.
