You will be working within our Product & Technology team alongside product managers and developers to define and execute on the product strategy. This will include research to understand the problems that our users face and to validate solutions through continuous learning. You will own the interaction and visual design across our applications, supporting the exciting expansion of our offering through 2020 and beyond.

Championing a user-centric approach to design, leveraging lean principles to deliver value to our users early and often
Performing user research to understand each of our stakeholders and leverage the resulting insights to shape tailored experiences

Good knowledge of UX testing methodologies and their application in a design process
A good eye for UI, with the ability to translate brand values into design elements
Experience working within multidisciplinary teams, collaborating with product managers and developers to deliver optimal outcomes for users
A passion for excellence, with the tenacity to keep working at a problem until it is solved and the belief that through great design we can change the way people perceive and interact with care.
Good to Have
Knowledge or understanding of the health and care sector
Experience in leveraging design for reassurance and peace of mind
Experience designing for a variety of demographics (few of our users a digital natives)
