Can you bring creative user-centered ideas to life and make great things happen beyond what meets the eye? We believe in teamwork, fun, complex projects, and simple solutions. How about you?

We’re looking for a likeminded UX Design Lead with the experience, passion and Jedi skills to help us rid the world of crappy design – one project at a time.

*You must be willing to come into the London office twice a week once it's safe to return to the office.

If you're curious about what we are working on right now in the Studio, here's a quick snapshot:

  • We're working on a new concept of using AI + Design for a next generation online retail experience.
  • We're creating a new bank from scratch, from service design to a design system for the experience.
  • We're helping a multinational food company design new brands and products for the future of plant based foods and immunity.
  • We're working with an energy company create a new consumer app and platform for renewable energy.

Would you like to...

  • Interact with clients, colleagues and external parties to make sure our design solutions are conceptualized and delivered with top-notch quality
  • Work systematically with complex business processes and align them with strategic direction
  • Support and synthesize primary research, develop insight-driven product strategy, present your ideas and facilitate workshops
  • Predict the direction your domain and industry are taking – and make sure we’re at the forefront
  • Manage client relationship, support sales activities and identify user-focused business opportunities
  • Align and collaborate with other lead designers, locally and regionally
  • Challenge and inspire teams to deliver the best possible solution

We would like you to be...

  • A skilled expert with 5+ years of professional experience in leading digital projects
  • A strategic design thinker with extensive experience in concept development – leading teams and managing clients ­, and inspiring both
  • A problem solver, with ideas that challenge the ordinary, together with the drive to bring them to life
  • Someone with a ‘here to help’ attitude, who absolutely, fundamentally believes that we’re better together
  • Fluent in English – other languages are a bonus!

Would you like to join...?

  • A team working and evolving remotely in this current climate – we truly are in this together!
  • Virtual cook-alongs, lunches, team activities, and craft sessions that bring us together
  • An inspiring, social, collaborative, and playful work environment, with an open-minded and diverse culture 
  • Local inspiration sessions all year round 
  • Free health insurance and other benefits too
