A client of mine are looking to onboard a Senior UX Designer for an initial 6-month contract. You will be the key designer Embedded in their Pro upload' crew, working on a PDF upload app. The tool is fairly new and still in beta, it's how Professional designers can upload their print-ready PDF files to be printed. There are lots of meaty, interesting problems to tackle.

They will need you to be the key designer for the crew, doing discovery work, carry evaluative research to deliver spot-on design solutions and attending the agile ceremonies for the crew. You'll frequently be using data and working closely with the Product Manager, engineers and other disciplines in the business.

Essential

  • Very strong visual design skills
  • Ability to create beautiful, well thought through interaction design
  • The ability to think creatively about a solution - for example sometimes the answer is to change copy, not to redesign.
  • You'll need to use research, data and critical thinking skills to decide what is the least you can do to bring maximum value to their customers.
  • Strong stakeholder management skills, ideally demonstrated in a complex environment
  • Sketch and InVision.*
  • A diverse background gained through experience working on a variety of complex projects of all shapes and sizes
  • Knowledge of using, maintaining and extending pattern libraries
  • Commercial acumen - the ability to think about trading off effort v reward and input into roadmaps
  • Prior experience working within a multi-disciplinary team including other Designers, Tech, Marketing and Product specialists

Desirable

  • Experience working on a complex customer-facing interface
  • A background within apps/web apps
  • Ability to work in an agile, iterative way - with experience breaking down bigger work into iterations
  • An understanding of the difference between a broader vision and MVP (and the steps in between)
  • Experience of using different research methods to inform design - formative, summative, using prototypes etc
  • Experience collaborating within a distributed design team on pattern libraries and using them to ensure consistency across Agile teams
  • Experience with atomic and modular design thinking/approach
