UX / UI Designer

Hove, England, United Kingdom

Description

ProdPad is a fast growing, Brighton & Hove based, tech startup. We are currently looking to hire a skilled UX/UI Designer, with experience in user/competitor/feature research, wireframing, user testing, and pixel-perfect UI design.


About us:

ProdPad is cloud-based product management software used by 1000+ companies, including market leaders like Bose, WP Engine, Rackspace, Airbus, and Amazon.

It’s a "software as a service" (SaaS) web tool designed to help teams build better products. By providing a single interface that collects all of the input from an organisation's broad base of users (both external prospects & customers, and internal groups - like sales, customer care and development), ProdPad provides product managers a beautiful interface to organise their product backlog, build their roadmap, and send their requirements to development via any of our incredibly useful integrations.

When hiring, we are always on the lookout for ways to hook up with the best and most interesting candidates out there. We go beyond the standard “job ad” approach - attending conferences, setting up and sponsoring local meetups, setting tech challenges (which we pay for) so candidates can see what life is really like at ProdPad, and of course offering flexibility to enable our team to balance their work and personal commitments.


About the Job:

ProdPad is a small team of multi-talented individuals, each of which wear different metaphorical hats on a daily basis (as is common in startups). The primary role of the UX/UI Designer is to be a key contributor to the success and improvement of the ProdPad app using a variety of skills to do so. You will also be required to provide additional design support outside of simply designing the ProdPad product, by aiding Marketing with improvements to the public facing prodpad.com site and providing assets for social/digital marketing. You will also get to be creative, and design the occasional item for marketing and merchandise, such as t-shirts, event stands, help booklets, and more…).

The Design team interacts with most teams within the business, and has direct regular contact with Development to help bring designs to life . Design is a key contributor to the direction and success of the product and therefore the business, so having the ability to look ahead of what you may be working on today/this month to look much further ahead to see the wider picture and help influence the direction of the company is imperative.


The role will include the following activities:


This is not an exhaustive list. One of the many benefits of working at ProdPad is that as a rapidly growing company, there is plenty to put your stamp on within the organisation. If you have ideas - share them, you never know where it might lead!


About you:

You’re likely from a Product background, or have some experience designing digital products. You have confidence in taking a feature/project and running with it on your own or as part of a team, performing research, wireframing, user testing, iterating and pixel-perfect design on your own as well as collaboratively with others. You have experience in presenting your ideas/work to other members of the team or the wider company and don’t take others critiquing your work to heart, but instead take the comments and learnings away to make the design better in the next iteration. You’re also willing to get stuck in with odd-jobs that need doing that may have a tight turnaround.

Why this job is important:

Our thousands of customers are engaged and excited by the product and expect a world-class experience, which we constantly strive to provide.
