Full Time
This is a very unique position for a Senior User Experience Designer to join the Bristol office of a highly respected, international brand. Through technology this digital app business connects people from all over the world and anchors its values in community and wellbeing. With a new office based in the heart of Bristol they are looking for someone to lead UX progression for their leading Android/IOS app.

What you’ll be doing 

Joining the newly formed UK headquarters in Bristol you will be the first UX Designer. Your job will be to establish UX process and build a multidisciplinary, world class team. The product is already hugely successful in other global markets so your job will be to understand the UK’s customer base and how to build a truly outstanding user experience in an emerging market. Although the Bristol office has big plans for this year the initial team is small, whilst you build a team of UXers around you you’ll be working in a hands on capacity. You’ll plan and conduct regular user research sessions and produce design deliverables including sketches, wireframes, prototypes, information architectures and user flows. Although based in the UK you will be working with remote and international teams on occasion.

What experience you’ll need 

Joining a small but fast growing team you’ll need to be a confident and dynamic problem solver. This is a hands on role so you’ll need to be able to show some solid commercial experience in research and interaction design. The product is across both web and app but the successful UX Designer will be focussing on the app build; prior experience of standalone IOS or Android applications will be required here.

With a successful offering abroad this position is about exploring a new market for the business; there’s huge potential here but this role will take someone driven, passionate and knowledgeable to make it a success. Ideally we’d find someone from a consumer product background although the right agency experience could suit here also.

What you’ll get in return for your talents

You’ll have the opportunity to lead the UX for an internationally acclaimed brand, but with the freedom to define process and grow a team your way. You’ll have the support from a diverse and highly skilled team, with key members of the business joining Bristol to drive its success. This is a crucial role so remuneration is depending entirely on experience, we’ll consider people from a variety of backgrounds and salary requirements. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you think you’re right for the role.

What’s next?

To be considered please apply with an up to date CV, case studies or supporting docs and don’t hesitate to call / email with any questions.
