Job title: UI Designer (Maternity cover)
We are looking for a talented UI designer to join the Product team. You will be a team player, problem solver and be familiar working with Agile development practices. You will be willing to help build and maintain our design system and always drive to deliver excellent user-centred work.
This is an exciting opportunity for a UI designer to join our team in Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire (initially home-based). This position is full time, on a temporary 12-month basis.
This role is focused towards UI design but you will need to have an understanding of UX design principles and practices. We are a small team so having the ability to manage your own workload is essential.
You’ll play a crucial role in the creation and design of new product features and will contribute to all phases of our product development cycle. The role involves working closely with the front-end development team as well as internal stakeholders to create design solutions that satisfy the requirements whilst also achieving the best user experience.
It will be your responsibility to ensure the design system and all design libraries are kept up-to-date, so a keen eye for detail is needed. You will need to ensure any data, research or customer feedback is carefully investigated, documented and thought about before feeding it into the user experience. You will have great communication skills and a positive, professional attitude.
