ABOUT YOU

Your push your designs to be both gorgeous and functional - you will always iterate on beautiful designs if they don't push the metrics.

You love to communicate UI/UX ideas clearly with a team through mock-ups and supporting artefacts.
You know how to get into a customer's mindset - and make the act of gathering ideas from competitors and other domains an essential daily habit.
Details, details details... perfection is unattainable, but you know details matter.

RESPONSIBILITIES
Collaborate with product management to define and identify innovative solutions for product design.
Create wireframes, storyboards, user flows and site maps to effectively communicate interaction and design ideas.
Execute all visual design stages from concept to HTML/CSS and final hand-off to engineering.

BENEFITS:
There's all kinds of benefits to working our client but the best are the great work/life balance principles at our core.
Work to live - Our founder hated the Goldman Sachs work culture... so we work to live, not live to work. Come in for eight hours of super-focused work time, and then go home.
Time Off - Great results need rest. We don't really count, but with 24 days holidays plus bank holidays you'll have ample time to climb mountains or kick back the tires.
Flexibility - we provide the option of a day's work from home for those that have longer commutes, and as many of us are parents there's always flexibility to deal with the kids.
Pensions - live for today, but don't forget the future. We contribute to your pension pot via Now Pensions, so that you know you'll be retiring well.
Sharpen the saw - whether your ambition is three letters after your name or just to learn new skills, we'll cover the costs of any education and training you want to take.
Expenses - All employees can expense every lunch that builds connections & any book that improves their mind. If it's work related we'll pay for it.
Gear up - With a great gear budget for every hire we'll help you get all the tools you need, Mac, Linux ... maybe not PCs.
