Are you a UX designer looking for a new challenge and have a keen interest in working for an International brand? Then read on.

A well-known eBusiness with offices in London are looking for a design professional with strong UX experience where you will have the responsibility for the development and maintenance of the UX design for the digital experience. You'll need to have a real passion for UX design and a strong track record of innovative user-centred design thinking.

Responsibilities:
You will work on the development and maintenance of the user experience online and more generally act as an advocate for the discipline. You will be expected to take a hands-on approach to deliverables that span the full user-centred design lifecycle.

Responsibilities can be broadly divided into two main areas: Insight & Planning and New Feature Design

  • Plan and implement creative ways to collect and analyse customer behaviours that will inform the design of key product features.
  • Create prototypes to test UX thinking within the team and with user testing.
  • Determine the appropriate level and type of user research, concept testing, and usability testing.
  • Conduct user research and testing; perform competitive audits and market research - and then convert findings into design decisions.
  • Provide insight into design trends, competitor analysis and what's hot in the app space.
  • Clearly articulate your solutions to internal stakeholders. You should be able to:
  • Design the information architecture and interaction behaviour for new features and functionality - through the use of workflows, sitemaps, wireframes etc.
  • Collaboratively develop prototypes for demonstration and evaluation of concepts.

What you will bring

  • Demonstrable experience as a User Experience and Interface Professional.
  • Good understanding of UX/UI and interface design patterns and new trends.
  • Proven experience designing for mobile devices and strong knowledge of web and mobile technologies.
  • Proven ability to gather insights from statistical analysis (e.g. web stats), competitive reviews and usability testing to improve the Apps' user experience
  • Strong communication skills; ability to present new concepts to stakeholders. Facilitation and collaboration skills to gain agreement on UX designs from Managing Directors to Product Owners and developers.
  • Proficiency in a variety of design tools used for the creation of specifications as well as tools used for demonstration and prototyping purposes (for example: Axure, Adobe CS, etc).
  • Self-motivation. You are proactive, identifying areas for improvement and take the initiative to implement.
