We're on a mission to change the face of cyber security education for young adults and we're looking for a Senior Product Designer to join as Product Team Lead to help us do exactly that.

Originally built a few years ago, our flagship product, CyberStart, is an industry leading educational game used by over 200k students as part of programmes in the UK and US which are looking to help solve the cyber security skills shortage. We're currently rebuilding the product and looking for a hands-on product designer to play a pivotal role in getting the new product launched and drive a robust product management process to ensure it goes from strength to strength.

Key responsibilities 

  • Work with the CPO to take operational responsibility for implementing our product strategy, and be the on-point person for the successful delivery and continuous improvement of the product.
  • Manage the product team (made up of another product designer and a product manager) and oversee our product management framework, processes and tools.
  • Work with the leadership team, other team leads and the product manager to understand, prioritise and translate customer needs and business goals into an ambitious product roadmap.
  • Coordinate and communicate between the product team and heads of other teams (technology, marketing and operations) to ensure alignment on product goals.
  • Play a hands-on role in product design, working with the other product designer to create wireframes and prototypes, design and iterate components and UI's (in Sketch, Figma or HTML/CSS).
  • Set a high bar for product design generally, pushing for consistency and quality across our product, and driving towards a world class product experience.

    Your skills and qualifications
  • You'll likely have a design related degree (product, interactive or digital) or similar in a related field, but more importantly you'll have significant experience as a senior product designer in a digital agency and/or product company.
  • A strong product design portfolio which showcases the process, principles and research behind your best work is a must. You'll have a keen eye for interface design and a strong knowledge of design fundamentals generally, with a passion for creating amazing user experiences and solving complex problems with elegant solutions that prioritise clarity and purpose.
  • You will need strong communication skills (written and verbal), experience articulating design and product direction to senior stakeholders, and the ability to collaborate with technical and non-technical people on design and product decisions.
  • Previous experience managing design and/or product people in a small team environment.
  • Experience working in a strong product-led environment where positive user outcomes are prioritised through the use of a robust product roadmapping process.
  • Great organisational skills and the ability to juggle multiple streams of work.
  • A passion for design generally and demonstrable experience being the senior design and product advocate in a team.
Working environment 

Most of the team work remotely, but we do have an amazing office in Ascott-under-Wychwood for when the world gets back to working in person again, so either are an option long term.

Level and salary

  • We're ideally looking for a strong hands-on product designer who has some experience leading a small team.
  • Salary is negotiable based on experience.
Company benefits

  • Pension.
  • Private healthcare and free eye-tests.
  • Flexible working.
  • High spec hardware.
  • 28 days holiday plus bank holidays per year.
  • Regular team 'get togethers' - virtual and in-person!
  • Scope to attend industry events.
  • Fantastic training and development opportunities.
