Lead UX Designer

The organisation

This opportunity is with a start-up software house, which is backed by a financially powerful multi-national organisation. Working out of modern shared office space amongst other tech innovators, this organisation is tasked with building a range of data analytics led enterprise software products.

The nature of the organisation dictates that it's a very creative environment where a lot of the work revolves around proof of concepts, rapid-prototyping and idea sharing which brings the best out of dynamic and creative technologists.

You will be joining an impressive team where career development is of paramount importance to the leadership team which is reflected in the loyalty and job satisfaction of the current employees. This is your opportunity to join a team of innovators in their pursuit of technical excellence and the creation, development and support of elegant, data heavy applications.

The role

You will join the core UX team which will be made up of two Lead UX Designers and the Design Principal. The design team is in its relative infancy and as such, this is a key hire. You will be building your own team which dictates that you have prior experience in building and managing teams while also remaining hands on.

You will implement processes, be a leader and educate colleagues and advocate UX throughout the organisation.

With a mix of existing products requiring continuous iteration and new ideas coming from the incubator regularly, you will get broad exposure and also watch your products be released and hear customer satisfaction first hand. If you're agency side and want to make the step into this kind of environment, this is your chance as agency side UX'ers are also of strong interest.

The two Lead UX Designers will come from slightly different backgrounds so if you either have a User Research background or a Visual Design/UI background, we want to hear from you.


  • 6+ years experience as a UX Designer
  • Minimum 1 year management experience
  • Strong experience of leading Agile teams (Scrum)
  • Agile and Lead design cycles
  • Technical skills - Axure, Omnigraffe, Balsamic, Sketch etc
  • Understanding of software development processes
  • Good understanding of user-centred design methods across full UX lifecycle
  • Excellent at conveying concepts through wireframes, flows and mock-ups
  • You enjoy hitting team goals and the shared sense of team success
  • Confident working with technical and non-technical audiences
  • Service design skills beneficial

Apply for the role today and we will you be in touch with you as soon as possible if your application has been selected.
