Product Designer

The App Business


As part of the Design team you'll be working on products and services for some of the world’s biggest brands. You'll be involved from planning through to execution, becoming an ever-present advocate for the user. You'll help your team to make informed design decisions, placing the needs of the user and the business at the very heart of your work.

Your interest and focus will be in human-centred visual design, supported by a broad knowledge of common user interface design patterns, iconography, typography and colour theory. You'll enjoy concepting and visualising solutions in response to the problems, ideas and opportunities you help extract from users and stakeholders.

You'll be most effective collaborating alongside engineers, strategists and other skilled team members in order to respond to the varying constraints of each project. You'll be keen to drive and justify your design decisions using research data, design principles, prototypes and the resulting user-testing learnings.

As a mid-weight Product Designer you'll be able to confidently contribute to a project’s design activities from kickoff through to delivery. You'll be paired with at least one other designer on projects – both to complement your skill-set and help you develop. You'll also be encouraged and supported in contributing to our Design team’s discipline.
