Job Brief

We are looking for a high-quality Product Designer to help create an aesthetically beautiful and highly functional experience for our clients and their users.

To be successful in this role, you must put the end-user at the centre of your design philosophy. As a team, we would rather solve our customers’ pain points as simply and efficiently as possible, than build beautiful products that do not.

  • Design mock-ups and prototypes that clearly illustrate key interactions within the product UX
  • Prepare and present rough drafts to internal teams and key stakeholders
  • Explain design choices based on research and clear reasoning
  • Identify and troubleshoot UX problems (e.g. identifying and improving key user workflows)
  • Adhere to (and continue developing) styling systems and standards

Requirements

  • 3+ years work experience as a UI/UX or Product Designer
  • Have a solid visual aesthetic
  • Portfolio of design projects including complex SaaS products
  • Knowledge of wireframe tools (e.g. wireframe.cc, InVision and Balsamiq)
  • Up-to-date knowledge of UI design software (e.g. Sketch or Figma)
  • Team spirit; strong communication skills to collaborate with various stakeholders
  • Good time-management and organisation skills

Preferably

  • Series A start-up experience
  • Knowledge of the asset management industry

Benefits

  • Join a fast growing start-up digitising the asset management industry
  • Flexible, independent and remote-first working environment
  • Help with home working setup, or a co-working space membership
  • Network with high-status clients, from leading investment banks to hedge fund managers and large institutional investors
  • Responsibility and opportunity from day 1
  • Reliably positive, supportive and social atmosphere
  • Huge opportunities for growth and role expansion
  • Compensation package including base + equity/options.
  • Perks package incl. discounts at 30,000 brands such as Samsung, Dell & John Lewis
  • Company pension plan
