We are working with a company specialising in website building tools who are looking to hire a Designer to join and lead their fast-growing team.

They offer a bespoke service aimed at non-techy business owners looking to launch websites. As opposed to the DIY website providers, where users will have to take the time to learn the tools, learn layouts and to write content, this is all created for the user and offers unlimited changes once the website is up and running.

Whilst being originally UK based, with recent growth and investment they are now in the States, the Philippines and launching to other English-speaking countries across the globe.

They recently moved to new offices in Shoreditch with room to expand. The design team is currently 4 people and they’re looking to grow by 2/3 in the next year.

You’d work in agile teams alongside Product Managers/ Product Owners, Developers and a Content Writer. They also have an internal marketing team who you would occasionally work alongside.

Within the role, you’d primarily be responsible for the end-to-end product design of their suite of tools (including complex dashboards, a CRM and the website builder tool, as well as occasional marketing work. It’s a great opportunity to strengthen UX experience and gain exposure to complex tools and systems.

To be successful in this role you should have:

  • Commercial experience within a design role
  • Prior line management or mentoring experience 
  • A polished portfolio showcasing end-to-end design work on complex digital complex. They’re keen to see and understand the design rationale here; the brief, the process and results.
  • Excellent layout and typography skills
  • Knowledge of HTML and CSS would be a real plus
