We’re looking for a senior digital product designer with experience working across (brilliant!) ecommerce and direct to consumer brands, collaborating across product, marketing and art direction. In this role, you would help support ecommerce and personalisation customer experiences on wonderbly.com, working closely with our Ecommerce and Publishing product squads.
You would support a major project (currently in progress) that focuses on the ‘upper funnel’ portion of the experience, where we help customers discover our brand and products and choose the right books for their needs. As well, we are planning a host of new personalised products that will require seamless personalisation journeys and fresh thinking.
This means we’re ideally looking for someone with experience working at the intersection of user experience and user interface design, and content design and UX writing.
Day to day you’ll be collaborating with small multi-disciplinary teams as the design lead with a peer product lead and tech lead working to better understand users, ship new features and tests and help the business achieve key goals linked to the upper funnel and middle funnel (product personalisation) portions of the journey. You’ll take your project briefs from the squads’ Product Leads but you’ll report to our Creative Director on design and content quality questions.

- Great agile team player - experience working directly with engineers, analysts, designers and product managers to create and ship change as part of an agile development process
- Strong foundations in digital product design - able to link business goals and strategy to design guidelines and performance
- Great copywriting skills - comfortable writing for diverse user needs and across different experiences and surfaces
- Experienced researcher - confident working with modern digital workflows using tools like Figma for prototyping, writing interview scripts, interacting with users, and understanding + analysing user feedback
- Good understanding of ecommerce best practices and KPIs - able to draw on personal experience and wider industry knowledge to guide decision making on the role of design in navigation, search, filtering, browsing and related user needs
- Good understanding of the role of visual content - happy to brief and give direct feedback to graphic designers, art directors and maybe motion designers
- Bring consistency across all touchpoints - You’ll invest in design standards, documentation, and processes to further our design practice
- Love for our category and brand - we want someone that loves book, kids and families content and who connects deeply with our internal company values of courage, kindness and curiosity
