We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated Product Designer to join our growing creative team.

This position is full-time with flexible remote working options.


Key areas of responsibility

As a Product Designer, you’ll show the ability to balance form and function creatively, whilst inviting both client and user needs. You see this as a challenge, and do whatever it takes to see a project through to a high level of quality. As a Digital Product Studio, we need your collaborative design skills and strategic thinking at every stage of the project, from competitor benchmarking to wireframes, through to visual design and prototyping, ultimately designing amazing digital experiences, products and platforms for our clients. 

You know your way around front-end code, and are able to accurately reproduce designs whilst maintaining a scalable, well organised codebase using best practices. On top of this you have a desire to keep up to date with the fast paced development world and like to experiment with emerging techniques and technologies. In your eyes, great development can bring a design to life. Static web pages are fine, but you like to use your skills as a developer to push things further, adding meaningful interactions that aid the user experience and improve the quality of the finished product.

  • Confident in articulating your ideas, and great at communicating with both clients and the rest of us

  • The ability to multi-task and solve problems and challenges

  • Always staying ahead of the trends in web, mobile and product design, and the best practices

  • Working as part of a development team, you write commit messages that make sense and can give and receive constructive feedback on pull requests

  • A few years of product design experience at an agency or consultancy is a big plus
