Senior Product Designer

at The App Business in London

We are looking for a Senior Product Designer who is able to apply a range of skills (visual design, interaction design, UX research, strategic thinking) to solve design problems and meet the needs of a brief. They should challenge the brief, its constraints and requirements and be able to resist feature­ overload by saying ‘no’ to the right things.

They will need to effectively communicate their approach, reasoning and output directly to the client and other members of their product team to ensure the product is created in an open, agile and collaborative manner.

This requires working fast, iteratively and innovatively, validating outputs based on research and collected reasoning. This process can only be effective if the designer is not only able to listen to but also act appropriately on the feedback and input of other members of the product team, the client and potential third parties and additional stakeholders. As such it’s essential to have not only an in depth understanding of the right tools and processes but also how and when to apply them.

They also have the ability to impart this working knowledge to other members of the team by helping establish working practises alongside the Head of Design, hosting workshops within the Design group or with the direct mentoring of junior designers. They are an inspiration to not only the other designers in the group, but also to other members of TAB, by continually demonstrating the value of craftsmanship and ownership of a product.

While not being wholly responsible they take an active interest in the development of the skills of the Design group, identifying opportunities to improve our processes and toolsets which enables us to work more collaboratively and effectively.

Focussing on a singular product at a time enables them to properly drive and craft the products they work on, however, they will have additional responsibilities outside of their product work and more input into the business so they require solid time management and delegation skills.

What you’ll need:

  • 5+ years experience working in a design studio/agency.
  • Solid understanding of mobile design patterns and responsive web design principles.
  • Experience working within Agile/SCRUM process.
  • Able to articulate and test ideas and with concept prototypes.
  • Well organised and self motivated.
