    A bit about you...

    As a talented Senior Product Designer, you thrive in a fast-paced environment whilst contributing continuously to the team. You are able to respond to challenges with both creative and data-informed ideas.

    What you will do...

    Own the end-to-end design process whilst considering the impact of your work across the various teams and parts of the application.

    • Challenge Product Owners, bringing your own knowledge and experience to the table to push for even greater ideas.
    • Mobile-first is not just a buzzword to you, it is a mindset. It is the way that you work and is something that you instil in those around you.
    • Drive your own research to help uncover new ideas and to find existing problems. You are forever inquisitive and never consider that something is "done".
    • Analyse Product Metrics to ensure that your designs and those of the team are working as intended, and if not, you are there to start asking more questions.
    • Create interfaces to test your ideas/prototypes with the team and with customers.
