So you want to be a User Experience designer?

UX Designer

We're looking for a keen-minded enthusiastic candidate with an eye for detail, and a real passion for User Experience (UX) design for a role here in our beautiful Edinburgh office. You'll need to know the fundamentals of the internet, user research and user experience design. Could potentially suit digital account managers looking for a more creative role, or web developers looking to step into the user experience space.

The UX team

In the User Experience (UX) team we’re responsible for designing the experience of a digital product – how easy it is to navigate, how it behaves, and how it feels. The ultimate aim of our game is to design something that’s not only usable, but that surprises and delights people. If a website is frustrating, annoying, or just plain dull then perhaps that site needs our help. Beyond the design of the functionality, the UX team act as custodians of the product’s behaviour and design, making sure that the whole team’s vision is maintained right through to the finished product; so we are involved in most of the production process in some way or another.

You'll need to know the fundamentals of the internet, online marketing, and user experience.
