UX Designers x4
at Simplify Digital in London
Want the environment of a start-up within a FTSE 125 company?
Chances are you’ve tried to change supplier for your television, phone, broadband or energy services before.
Did you have a memorable experience as a consumer? We’re here to make it a ‘yes’
We’re a high growth technology and retail business. We develop deal comparison SaaS for triple play: TV, Phone and Broadband. It’s a complex industry with over 5,000 products, each with several variants – we’re here to offer customers the right option.
We’re also the proud creators of Voltz, an energy-switching app. It’s had phenomenal feedback on the app stores (5*) and has helped people to save on their energy bills.
We use our deal comparison software ourselves, but it’s also used by companies like Dixons Carphone, Sainsburys, Game, The Guardian …
Right now, we’re in the midst of some big changes which include:
Migrating our services to AWS.
Redesign of our product suite
Scaling up our technology team.
Integrating into the wider Dixons Carphone Group.
Central to our success has been the creation of our software products that assist in the sale of complex products online, in-store, on mobiles and over the phone. Our design team play a crucial role in keeping our products looking fresh and intuitive to use.
