  • Who are we?

    Outfly is London’s leading design innovation agency. Over the last 10 years we’ve been disrupting the model of traditional agencies to make something that works for the high-speed challenger brands of today. We work with innovation wings, social impact startups, entrepreneurs and fast-paced tech companies to help the people that need it most. We do everything from brands, websites, marketing, business plans, pitch decks, video shoots, app designs, product designs, office designs (lots of designs), copywriting, message aligning, immersive experiences and social media.

    We don’t get briefed, we get challenged.

    What you’ll be doing

    You’ll be a bit of an undiscovered genius, obviously. We’re looking for an all round UX superstar, a creative and strategic blend. We need you to be able to own projects, crafting flawless user flows and turning those into game changing experience designs. You’ll have the support of the rest of the strategic and design team, but you will be the central cog bringing it all together. This is someone who can see the big picture, has the confidence to pitch and realise creative ideas, with the focus to carry them out.

    You’ll spend your days working closely with our strategic and creative directors and our head of marketing to help them revolutionise our partners’ brands from the focal point of pure UX. The aim of the game will be to create experiences and journeys that deliver on business goals while being highly usable and delightful.

    Most of your time will be spent in either strategy workshops, or taking point on our ongoing UX projects, from traditional digital UX design to immersive experiences and full scale service design. This means everything from running workshops to user flows, wireframing feasible designs in consultation with our dev team, to rolling out UI with the support of the wider design team. We’re a crazy supportive and collaborative company, but this role will best suit someone with independent drive. The right person will run ahead, researching best practices, innovating around them, and getting stuck in, fast.

    We’ve got some pretty crazy workshops, but we’re always open to innovate so you’ll be expected to own the process, improving our offering and running the workshops yourself within the first two months.

    Our partners are fast-growing tech startups with an appetite for disruption. You’ll need to be able to understand complicated concepts quickly, the big picture that connects them, and provide insights to help them clarify their message and position. You’ll then need to be able to formalise these into beautiful, well written, well designed strategic decks.

    The skillset you’ll need

    To enjoy this role, and succeed within it, you’ll have:

    • A strong understanding of UX and design methodologies.

    • The depth of understanding to implement those in an agile environment

    • Experience defining design systems that work across a complex product.

    • Experience working with development teams and reacting to their needs

    • Experience communicating human centered design and research’s role in the design process.

    • A portfolio showing experience designing wireframes and sitemaps for web and/or mobile

      applications.

    • An excellent level of written, interpersonal and presentation skills

    • A proven ability to deliver game-changing brand and strategic ideas

    • Proven examples of big ideas and proactivity, where you’ve gone above and beyond to add the

      value no one else could see

    • A sound foundation in design theory and software knowledge.

    • Expertise in Figma, XD and GSuite are essential.

    • A high level of competency in Adobe CC, (specifically XD, Illustrator and Photoshop) will be

      advantageous.

      Basically we need someone who really knows their stuff, to help us up our game and build on an already fantastic team (if we do say so ourselves). More importantly, we need someone who is bored of bureaucracy and wants to grow fast.

      What about you?

      You love innovation, and have:

    • A flair the likes of which we’ve never seen

    • A passion for purpose-driven ideas, entrepreneurship and tech

    • The desire to build a world-class agency that’s been waiting for you

    • A rock solid conscience and a heart of gold

    • Three years in a UX design role.

      Perks of the job:

    • Full time role, Salary D.O.E

    • Benefits (depending on contract type):
      Pension, Corporate Perks Package, Discounted Gym Membership, Personal Learning Allowance, 35 days off per annum, Cycle4Work, Tech4Work and Electric Vehicle schemes, share options for loyalty, being in Europe’s largest tech hub; surrounded by weekly events, coffee mornings and member nights!

    • A badass team that plays with nerf guns.

    • Genuine room to innovate and grow.
    • Hours of work are flexible, but average Monday to Friday 900am 600pm. Flexibility will sometimes be required to meet business and client needs.
    • Flexibility will sometimes be required to meet business and client needs but we operate on a hybrid/office remote model, with an office located in Europe’s biggest Innovation Hub in Plexal, Here East, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London.
