Mobile Interaction/UI Designer

at Ayuda Heuristics in London

(₤30000 - ₤60000 per year)

Ayuda Heuristics is solving an unsolved problem in a really complex domain; learning how people do their daily diabetes self-care and giving them personalised advice to do it better. Our users will come to rely on this app for their daily diabetes self-care and borrow and share data to help others. Along the way we’re creating new knowledge that will help eradicate diabetes. We’re a well funded, female-founded digital health startup based in Finsbury Park.

We’re looking for a mobile interaction designer, someone to:

Join our, mainly technical, six-person team to own the UI and interaction design of our product. You’ll create low-fi prototypes and designs using Sketch, Craft and InVision, for a functionally complex native app where ease of use is critical to its success
Work closely with our founder and product visionary, Isabella, experimenting and rapidly prototyping as we bring the app to life with usable, intuitive design
Get technical. Design and development need to be hand in hand so you either already know Xcode Interface Builder or you’re keen to learn it. It’d also be nice if you’re familiar with code versioning concepts, scripting, and even how to write Sketch plugins but you could learn these as part of the role
See the forest and the trees. You can research and design for the bigger picture, but are itching to get into the details and move features though the pipeline
Understand a really diverse set of user needs, define their journeys and goals and work with our beta users to test ideas, then build them

If this is for you, the next bit will sound familiar. You bring;

An understanding of — and respect for — the iOS Human Interface Guidelines. You don’t reinvent the wheel or design solutions that are too hard to implement
Knowledge of mobile. You know all about the rich interactions of mobile devices and you design with them front of mind
An understanding of auto layout concepts and their pitfalls
A love for hands-on design (brand, typography, UI patterns) and pixel perfection, balanced with pragmatism. You relate design decisions to the value for users and ease of implementation
Knowledge of different design workflows and the toolchains that support them (our current toolchain - which we’re open to changing: Sketch, Craft, InVision, Zeplin)
You know when to use user research and how to incorporate this into the design process
You get that design needs to be at core of our values, mission and principles and want to help us make this a reality with an app that materially improves lives. You bring empathy for the realities of daily life with diabetes, and want to make life better for millions of people

We’re open-minded and excited about where this role could go. It could lead to ownership of the entire brand identity and customer experience across all channels, as well as the Ayuda app. Your passion for design and tendency to stay ahead of the curve on the latest tools, approaches and thinking means you’d like to help us shape this.

Ayuda Heuristics is challenging the conventional thinking and received wisdom of the diabetes world. We work with a massively diverse set of user needs, creating new knowledge that will help to eradicate diabetes. We believe the more inclusive we are, the better our product will be. We are creating an inclusive environment where everyone can bring their whole selves to work, and we welcome applications from all.
