At Catapult we're building a better way for people to find casual work. Whether it's working in a bar, hotel or stadium, our candidates receive jobs through our app and are free to choose exactly who they work for and when. With Catapult, the casual workforce now has complete control and ownership of their working life.

We work with some of the best known hotels, stadiums, retails, bars and restaurants in the UK. We've been growing incredibly fast and are looking for a hands on designer to join us for the next stage of our journey.

About the role

Your first task will be to review our existing - fairly ad-hoc - branding and design and help to develop a plan for bringing all of this together across web, mobile, email and offline.

You'll then be working closely with the product team to shape everything from our candidate mobile app to our employer tablet and web application. You'll work with the product owner to understand new features, develop user journeys, rapidly iterate on wireframes and mockups before creating final designs to be implemented by the development team.

As our first designer you'll have the opportunity to have a real impact on the design and UX of our product as well as the overall product roadmap.

About You
