Senior Product Designer / Senior UX/UI Designer

job post

Job Description

 

We're a young company looking for a Senior Product Designer who is passionate about creating experiences that delight users and make a real difference.
Admittedly we have not been design led in the past and this role has been created to shift the focus of our development efforts to a design first mentality where user experience is our primary consideration.
You’ll be responsible for product design architecture, UX, UI, design vision and maintaining clear communication between our development team and Product Manager/Owner. You’ll also have additional support from contractors to help you achieve success. You’ll be responsible for ensuring their output contributes to the implementation of your vision.
Responsible for ensuring designs and design concepts are clearly articulated and documented where necessary with style guides and any supporting documentation within Figma. Interacting with developers is important in this role too, as we believe in collaborative teams.
You’ll join our newly established product team that believes in collaborating, experimenting and being empathetic to our users. We believe in user research to understand needs and UX testing to validate assumptions/experiments. The product is still relatively young so there is still the ability to shape the product with your vision.
The role would suit someone who wants to be hands on but have a greater degree of control of the entire design function. We would consider a Senior who is looking to transition into a lead over time.
BookingLive operates with a UK wide hybrid working model, meaning you have the flexibility to choose if you would like to work from home, our offices or a mix of the two.

Key Responsibilities

 

  • Influence and establish the product identity and vision
  • Articulate vision to the VP of Product and wider team.
  • Responsible for implementing best practice for ensuring efficient design with tools like style guides, componentized elements and responsive components that make designing on a range of devices cost effective.
  • Responsible for communicating overall design(Style Guide + Prototypes) and approach to a team of developers(Developer Handover);
  • Help conduct user research to clearly define user requirements.
  • Help to conduct UX research with customers to justify design decisions.
  • Review customer feedback and formulate recommendations for inclusion in the backlog/roadmap
  • Document designs, components and the wider design system to provide clarity on the design approach and rules.

Essential

 

  • Experience with Figma design software
  • Happy to get stuck in and roll your sleeves up
  • Pragmatic and understand commercial concepts like return on investment and the agile approach to development.
  • Good communication skills to all levels of stakeholders with a people-focused attitude.
  • Knowledge of the latest approaches and trends in product design and a proactive approach to self-improvement.
  • Data-driven with a keen focus on data-driven decision making.
  • A team player who believes in collaboration as the way to achieve lasting success and buy-in.
  • Able to empathise with users and to not compromise on user experience.

Desirable but not critical

 

  • Experience leading the design of a product
