We have a new opportunity for a UI designer for an agency that builds its own products as well as providing digital services to a range of sectors. Are you a UI designer with a strategic approach? Do you thrive in a collaborative test and learn environment? Are you looking for an opportunity where you can have more ownership of your projects and ongoing career? This might be the role you’ve been looking for.
This highly creative agency has been going for 10 years after being set up by a software developer who was and still is enthusiastic about crafting an atmosphere where the best people in tech can execute excellent work in a truly collaborative atmosphere. They enjoy learning from their mistakes and put a lot of onus on experience; the experience of the end user, the client and of course the creative talent delivering the work. Their growing portfolio means they are eagerly looking for their new recruit. The Head of UX and Design needs an ideas driven UI Designer to join the team who has proven experience solving creative problems within an established digital/ tech team and is as hungry to understand the why’s and how’s and they are to produce something that is visually stimulating.
