    About Decently

    We’re an early stage health tech start-up with an exciting and ambitious mission to use technology for good and directly improve the lives of our users and customers.

    We believe in doing things Decently!

    Even before we defined WHAT the business was going to be focused on we were clear on HOW we wanted to operate!  Down to how we look after our team, our interactions with our customers, the problems we solve, and the quality of the digital solutions we create!  

    We have a flexible approach to working so whilst we are based in Liverpool UK, and would of course love to hang out with you in person, we have no expectation for you to attend the office on a regular basis.  At this very early stage we do however ask that applicants to this role are based in the UK to facilitate any potential for face to face meet-ups as and when needed (CV19 restrictions permitting).  

    So, you just need to ensure you have a great home wifi connection and desk set-up and we’ll provide you with everything else you need to be successful in your role!

    Take a look at the job spec and see how it fits...we can’t wait to meet you!

    We are an equal opportunities employer and value diversity at Decently. We do not discriminate on the basis of religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability status. We are committed to building an inclusive and diverse workplace where everyone can do their best work.

    About the role

    This is a full-time role but we are open to discuss flexible working for the right person and providing the key objectives can be met.

    We are looking for someone with a strong background in design. We firmly believe that the UX of a product is one of the most important factors of its success. We want to build beautiful products that are easy to use and you should too.

    • Conducting user research - both quantitative and qualitative - in order to present findings and recommendations for new or improved product features.
    • Creating user personas to drive product decisions, define user stories and help prioritise product development.

    • Defining and demonstrating user flows/wireframes/mock-ups to enable rapid prototyping of new product features that address user needs.

    • User testing of new features or concepts - comfortable using virtual and face-to-face methods to gain valuable feedback.

    • Create and own our product design system - including setting up desktop and responsive grids, primary, secondary, tertiary, warning, info, error colours etc, button sizes (small for mobile, medium and large for desktop), type styles (H1's, H2's, para 1, para 2, caption, button, footer text etc).

    • Contributing to evolution of broader Product Brand e.g. logo, brand kit, visual identity, font set, marketing collateral.

    • Interacting regularly with our Product Director and customers for anything from product discovery to usability testing.

    • Ultimately working closely with the rest of the product team as they come onboard.
