Senior UX Designer
Senior UX Designer
Our expanding Web team are looking for a Senior UX Designer to join their multi-skilled team of designers, developers and analysts. The Web team are responsible for a website across multiple channels - optimising them to ensure a smooth booking journey and the best browsing experience possible in order to maximise conversion rates and ultimately help the business to grow.
This role will join us at an exciting time as the business makes a strategic focus on improving the customer web experience. The team will be pivotal in delivering these changes to fulfil the goal of the programme.
The Senior UX designer will apply their design skills to create aesthetically pleasing, user-friendly web design - conceiving and implementing ideas as part of a fast-moving programme of change designed to increase conversion - on both project work and regular, incremental updates to the website design.
In addition, the role will mentor and coach other Designers and take the lead in building relationships with the rest of the business to clarify the brand and aesthetic requirements for design, as well as understanding technical impediments in order to deliver the design changes.
You will have proven experience of successfully designing aesthetically-appealing e-commerce sites in a commercial environment and have a strong understanding of interaction design. You will have strong Sketch and Photoshop skills, as well as HLM5 and CSS3.
You will have a commercial approach to design, and be able to demonstrate the tangible benefit of any design changes made. You will be comfortable working with Agile methodologies in a collaborative team environment.
You will be an effective team player who takes a user-centred approach to design - anticipating customer needs and behaviours. You will be willing to take a data-driven approach to decision making (rather than subjective opinion), and prepared to suggest and implement new, innovative ideas. You will be able to challenge ideas constructively and work well in a results-focussed team.
Experience of working on large-scale e-commerce sites and using A/B testing methodologies would be very welcome, but aren't essential. Experience of mentoring or managing a small team would be beneficial.
Although we work hard, we also believe in rewarding that hard work. In addition to salaries, we offer a generous benefits package including:
- 28 days holiday (including bank holidays)
- Annual bonus scheme
- Staff pension
- Private Medical
- Death in Service payment
- Subsidised park and ride passes
- Enhanced maternity and paternity pay
- Long service awards - cash payments and increases in holiday allowances
