Description:

We’re looking for a Product Designer to join our Manchester studio. We need somebody who is passionate about learning from user behaviour, attitudes and emotions to create exceptional products and services.

You'll have the skills to develop research and insights to visualise ideas, you love to see your work come to life and have a portfolio to prove it.

Your work will also show a clear thought process. It’s not all about the finished product, but how you got there that is most interesting to us.

Requirements

  • Portfolio to demonstrate your experience and product design work across a range of projects.
  • Proactive problem solving approach to the design challenge with an inquisitive mind.
  • Advocate for Human Centred Design approaches, tools and processes. 
  • Experience producing and using Design systems.
  • Confidence in presenting your design rationale to colleagues or clients. 
  • Skills in communicating and influencing product strategy.
  • Creative mind, collaboration skills and a desire to learn.
  • Awareness of trends and best practice in UI and UX design.

Responsibilities

  • Play a primary role in defining product direction, approaches, and apply research, data and insights to make informed design decisions.
  • Contribute and assist with facilitation of a range of workshops in the design approach.
  • Work with multidisciplinary teams to create and deliver solutions that satisfy the needs of the business and the end user.
  • Produce Design Systems and supporting assets.
  • Design prototypes to try things out, mitigate risk and learn. 
  • Work with the Engineering and Development teams to ensure design is successfully considered throughout the implementation stage.
  • Share knowledge, trends and best practices with team members.
