Information

I am currently looking for an empathetic problem-solver, experienced in product design, to help us deliver the best e-commerce experience possible. Our design team loves creating meaningful and authentic product experiences. We’re a flexible and collaborative team guided by data, feedback, and a user-centered approach to our process.

My client start from the very early stages: finding the right problem to tackle, exploring ideas for how to solve it and then refining it into a coherent solution. Our product designers carry out research, brainstorming, sketching, prototyping, and collaboration with our engineers to ship great products. We are empathetic user advocates and respect our users’ opinions through interviews, usability testing, and data analysis, as well as wire-framing, flowcharting, and journey mapping to show the different stages that customers go through.

Reporting to the UI Team Lead.

You should apply if:

  • You have at least 5 years experience in a Product Design role with a portfolio that demonstrates experience in product thinking where you have previously shipped UX/UI design for digital products.
  • You are a designer that is constantly inspired – motivating those around you through your passion and drive for what you do.
  • You shine through your designs and you’re excited by regularly coming up with new ideas, shipping new products and features that address your users’ real needs.
  • You thrive in a collaborative workplace; partnering with other designers, engineers, product owners and other disciplines throughout the company.
  • You appreciate big picture thinking. While details are everything, creating an experience that always keeps our users in mind is equally as important.
  • You are a problem solver that’s excited by a challenge. You enjoy sitting in a room and white-boarding ideas to confidently come up with simple, elegant solutions that everyone can move forward with.
  • You enjoy a little flexibility in your work. Our growth means there are constantly new things to work on every day, as such it’s likely that you’ll often be working across the board on new and exciting projects.
  • Sketch is your tool of choice. If you are good at AE or any other motion design tool, we’ll love you even more.
