Joining as the first member of the Design team, working closely alongside Developers and the company's CTO.
Are you a UX Designer interested in joining a start-up environment?
Can you set the foundations of a product's UX journey?
An Oxford based start-up, transacting on a global scale, is seeking a UX Designer as they scale up their team. Supported by a profitable product and a strong round of investment, this role is a chance for a UX Designer to make a huge impact within a small team.
Being the company's first UX hire, there is a significant roadmap of projects to tackle. You'll work closely with the CTO, Developers and wider in-house team to improve the user experience across a range of systems, alongside gathering requirements from customers and user feedback.
This is a more traditional UX / HCI role than you'd typically come across. Yes, you'll be handing over UI mock-ups to the Development team, but the product ethos has always been about functionality and not getting weighed down in being 'pixel-perfect'.
The current design stack, owned by the Development team (before you take over), is Figma for design and Github for the development of stories & planning. The frontend stack makes use of Bootstrap & Material UI.
Here's the requirements:
- A few years' experience in UX Design, enough to plan your deliverables and know where to prioritise your efforts
- A real interest in joining a start-up team - it's a unique product and will challenge you in ways that you'd never see in a typical web design role
- A product focus, able to see the impact of your work across the long and short term
Being a collaborative team, they take an office-first approach to work - though this role is open to hybrid working if required. You should be within a commutable distance of Oxford, either currently or following relocation.
The salary is flexible, so if you're interested but over budget then feel free to put in an application and I'll see what can be done!
