Summary

We’re looking for a User Experience Designer to represent 100 Shapes in Leeds. You’ll be working directly with our client - who just so happens to be the UK’s largest, commercial broadcaster - no big deal.

We’ll need you for 6 months initially, with the opportunity to extend. You will be the first designer at 100 Shapes to be based in Leeds so this is the perfect opportunity to carve the role out for yourself and make the 100 Shapes mark. From research and ideation to prototyping and testing, you will solve design problems that directly influence business performance. 100 Shapes is dedicated to enhancing the lives of employees through creating better internal tools - and you will be too.

The role

You will be working in our client’s studio, alongside the stakeholders and users, to ensure that 100 Shapes is fully immersed in every step of the design lifecycle.

You will be on the frontline gathering insights from users and stakeholders, tackling complex design problems and owning the solutions you create. You’ll make sure we deliver the best possible experiences for the users.

You’ll have a solid background in the entire user experience design process and be able to clearly communicate how a product or system ought to become, whether that’s through prototypes, sketches, personas, user flows etc.

You’re a self-starter who understands the UX process is a toolkit of methodologies. You’re an expert at picking the right tool for the job and feel at ease when setting out an approach.

Whether it’s through methods like interviewing, observing or testing you’ll be skilled at gathering and understanding user and business needs. You’ll be comfortable collaborating with different teams and facilitating workshops when necessary.

You’ll own the experience; defining the way your digital product interacts with users, making sure it’s simple, user-friendly, and beautifully crafted.

To ensure you stay connected to the 100 Shapes HQ in London we will have daily video stand-ups, regular slack communication - mostly memes - and 1 day per week in the London studio (all expenses covered).

You’re curious and proactive, often challenging and inspiring us with your perception of what’s possible. You’re an impeccable communicator, knowing how best to present your ideas, making your voice heard, and helping the team understand what we’re building.

You have:

  • Skill in Sketch, Marvel, Invision etc
  • Knowledge of web/mobile/device-specific design and user-centered design principles
  • Mastery of UX skills: user research, information architecture, interaction design and ability to think creatively and deliver elegant concepts
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills; you’re a strong collaborator and a self-starter with a “can-do” attitude
  • 4+ years of professional design experience.
