Senior UX Designer

Apadmi prides itself on being one of the best mobile Digital Product Creation teams in the country. Our clients include the UK’s leading brands, and we get the chance to work with them and make a real difference. 

Our design team is growing, so we’re looking for a Senior UX Designer who can define and design the experiences for that will delight our clients and their customers, delivering value at every step. 

Reporting to the Creative Director, you will be a senior and active member of the design team who has experience of working in agile teams and enjoys close collaboration with strategists, product managers and UI designers – from Discovery to Delivery. You’ll be the champion of the future user, always looking for the insights that will unlock the ideas that lead to innovative and impactful new solutions. 

You’ll lead the UX research during Discovery – interviewing customers, running workshops, analysing behaviours and identifying pain/gain points. You’ll then help establish new KPIs, designing the journeys and wireframes to prototype and test with users. Your strong knowledge of usability testing to validate and improve the experiences you design is critical here. 

You’ll lead the UX for key accounts, so we’re after someone with management experience and – crucially – can build strong relationships with our clients. You’ll have a great portfolio of work, with proven mobile experience. 

Your passion for creating amazing experiences should be infectious – you should push the rest of the team to realise your vision.

  • Analyse requirements and provide accurate estimates for the UX elements of a project.
  • Be experienced working in an agile/scrum development process.

What you’ll need

  • 4+ years of UX experience, ideally in a digital agency or consultancy.
  • A brilliant portfolio of products that highlight where your UX skills have made a real impact. There should be a significant number of mobile examples
