Designing reusable UI components to help accelerate workflows for designers and engineers
Solicit feedback from everyone in the team and our users in a cohesive and executable manner (with lots of user testing along the way)
Help with design workshops, carding up user-stories and defining personas etc

Ability to create delightful animated interactions where necessary and examples of designing fun interactions that engage users
Passion for delivering an exceptional product and passion for your craft
Flexible work hours - we don’t focus on 9-5, you know when you work best
Learning and development is key: we’ll fund what you need, we have a very healthy budget for training, conferences, online tutorials etc, just let us know what you need

Highly competitive salary
Equity in a new startup with a highly experienced team

Building an innovative, first of its kind product and being involved in a startup from the outset with a highly experienced team that’s done it before
A design-led organisation (one of our founders is a designer) - Great products are built on the foundation that we understand our users and we test creative designs with them, and we surprise and delight them as they interact with our product
We value the qualitative and quantitative view for the bigger picture (not vanity metrics)
Regular 10% time (1 day every other week) to play around with new concepts and new software
Regular all-in hack days
Product, Design and Engineering all in one place for easy collaboration amongst the whole team
A fun place to work! We work hard but we also enjoy ourselves and understand there’s life outside work
No hierarchy or politics, just good work with passionate, smart people
