  • Identify areas of improvements on our digital platforms through gathering user research and evaluating user requirements.

What we're looking for

  • A strong and credible design track record with a focus on UI/UX and ecommerce design.
  • A hunger to develop innovative ideas and create beautiful, intelligent pieces of design.
  • Ability to lead design thinking backed up by practical UI/UX principles, data and customer insight.
  • Passionate about accessibility and mobile-first design best practices, standards and techniques.
  • Confidence to balance business needs with design requirements in pursuit of the best solution for the user.
  • Natural curiosity for psychology and the digital world.
  • Outstanding communication.

Our people are at the heart of our business and we offer a great environment where we have fun, celebrate success and give you all the tools you'll need for a rewarding career with a team who are passionate about what they do. This is backed by our recent 3 star accreditation, the highest accolade from Best Companies achieved through our ‘world class’ levels of engagement.

We are fully committed to supporting our staff to work in a flexible way that allows them to balance all of their commitments both inside and outside of work. As we move forward and grow we are committed to supporting our teams to work in a way that lets them be at their best, whether that’s on-site or remotely, traditional or flexible working hours.

We'll welcome you on-board with 24 days holiday (plus 8 bank holidays) with the opportunity to buy additional holiday if you fancy an extended break, a great annual bonus scheme, the latest mobile phone and contract (that’s on us!), and a staff benefits scheme (with over 250 discounts and offers available).

We also offer free life insurance (which covers 4-times your salary), private medical insurance for you and your family and an attractive pension package.

Having fun both inside and outside work is really important to us so we have a highly motivated social committee who organise regular social events which previously ranged from escape rooms, meals out and bowling to Tough Mudders. They’ve even worked hard to keep the fun going virtually since we’ve all been unable to get together.

Our head office is in Ilkley, West Yorkshire. In response to Covid-19 we are currently operating as a fully remote business. We are following government guidelines closely and all employees are working from home wherever possible until further notice. We are open to applications no matter where you are located and we have moved our interview and onboarding process to be fully virtual.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of age, disability, race, religion or belief, gender reassignment, marital and civil partnership status, pregnancy and maternity, sex or sexual orientation.
