UI/ UX Designer

at Mush in London

(₤35000 - ₤60000 per year)

App designer (UX/UI)

About Mush:

Mush is a local social network for mums, started by mums Sarah & Katie in April 2016 as a way for mums to meet other local mums with kids the same age. It has since evolved to be a community for all mums around the UK.

Founded by Sarah & Katie, Mush now has 100,000s of mums on the app and a small team based in Battersea.

Mush is a great place to work (we would say that!) with a tight team. We are bonded by our mission to make mums’ lives more brilliant and the need to make our work and personal lives work. We are parents here, and understand our market. We don’t require this of candidates of course, but the job may be more interesting for you if you are one.

About the role:

We are looking for a highly motivated product designer to join our ambitious, close knit team in London. Someone who is a problem solver, a creative thinker and loves a good challenge. A generalist who will be involved in all aspects of the design process, from initial ideas to the final pixel perfect design before it goes live. A designer who loves and cares about the quality of the product and values and understands our community.

A designer who is excited about taking Mush to the next level and finds a perfect balance between business priorities and a user-centred design methodology. Versed in both UX and UI we are looking for a proactive thinker, who alongside the day to day tasks, can also propose and present new ideas to the team. A designer with previous experience in the end to end design process who understands the “mums /parents” audience and has previously worked on a community/social platform.

A team player used to working within a multidisciplinary team where everyone contributes to the development of the product, who is able to listen and influence the product vision. Someone who is excited about our product and passionate about improving Mush in order to provide a great and delightful experience to our users.
