The Client
My client is a customer experience consultancy and digital product development agency. Their goal is to deliver the most compelling experiences for their clients, based on customer insights, iterative development and delivered using the latest web technology. My client uses agile and lean techniques to deliver their work but are not strictly tied to any one methodology. My client is looking for someone who will thrive and grow with them - if that sounds like you and you have these skills, it’s time to get in touch.

About you
You’ve got several years agency experience under your belt. You’re excited about building brilliant digital experiences that surprise clients and delight users; balancing psychology, technology and design.
Comfortable building wireframes and prototypes from scratch, as well as responding to detailed briefs; you have pragmatic, hands-on experience and a strong knowledge of trends and technologies.

The role
Working across a collaborative and multidisciplinary team you will be critical in how my client produce, create and design digital experiences.
From the beginning, you’ll be involved in creating modular, scalable wireframes and mock-ups that creatively apply consistent interface patterns across a variety of use cases and device types, including desktop, tablet and mobile.
As part of a specialised and dedicated project team, you’ll be integral; shaping the direction of the company's design direction and helping to continually improve and optimise the designs and techniques my client uses. You'll work alongside highly experienced developers and designers with plenty of opportunities to learn. We’ll also give you the time (and funds) to develop your own skills independently, with training courses and conferences to ensure you grow alongside us.
