- You'll pair directly with engineers to bring the finished product to life and place it in the hands of our users.
- When the time is right, you'll play a key part in expanding the product and design team.
What we're looking for...
- You are comfortable with taking the initiative, making data-driven decisions whilst also trusting your intuition.
- You understand how to balance technical constraints, user needs, and business requirements to push for the best possible user experience
- You enjoy the challenge of distilling data-rich, complex systems into flexible, powerful and yet easy to use experiences.
- You always consider the broader ramifications of your work, thinking about the bigger picture and long-term strategy.

- You believe collaboration is key. You are able to articulate your work and decisions through both excellent written documentation and conversation.
- You love to learn and grow, share your knowledge and take feedback in your stride.
- You have experience designing as part of an in-house product development team.
- You have a portfolio demonstrating strong product and design knowledge.
