Product Designer

at carwow in London

carwow is changing the way Europe buys cars. We want to make car buying simple, enjoyable, and digital – becoming the absolute best way to buy a car.

We’re a young and exciting startup at the beginning of huge growth. We’ve raised over £19m in funding since we launched in 2013, and facilitated the purchase of more than 40,000 cars worth more than £1 billion. Consumers can read and watch in-depth reviews of every car on the market in the UK, quickly compare offers from our trusted dealer network and buy directly from them without any hassle or haggling. We are looking for an amazing Product Designer at carwow to come and join our Product Team.

Design is core to the culture of our company, one of our co-founders is our Creative Director, and we look for excellent design in everything, from the website right down to beautiful chrome fire extinguishers in our shiny new office!

Car buyers face complex choices and a sea of information, and our mission is to make buying a car simple as well as enjoyable. Great user-centered design is a major part of this mission; it builds trust, explains data in an understandable way and can improve all the other key parts of the business. Plus we like making people happy!

We’re still small though, which means you get to make a huge difference in a growing and already successful business.
