UX / UI Designer
We’re looking for a full-time designer to aid our team in producing fantastic web experiences at our offices in central London.
Ideally we’re looking for someone with at least a year’s experience of working in a professional design environment. Salary will be based on experience.
What you’d be doing
We’re looking for a designer to work on web projects with us from initial learning and research phases, through wireframing, design and delivery.
You’ll be tasked with designing our projects (obviously). This involves a process of sharing with the team and clients little and often – we don’t do big reveals and we encourage sharing and sanity-testing your work with others around you.
We want someone to join who can create beautiful visuals and functional, well thought out interfaces for the websites and applications that we build. We don’t like style over substance but want everything that goes out to be stylish, for the right reasons. You’ll be able to design cutting edge visuals ready for a talented team to put together on complex and exciting projects.
User Research & Interviews
We emphasise a lot of value on learning from users and stakeholders before we commit to designing and building anything. We like our designers to host some or all of these interviews and feed their findings back to the team and into the project.
Sketching & Wireframing
You’ll demonstrate content and hierarchy through sketches and wireframes – picking and choosing the appropriate tools for each project.
Workshops and Prototypes
We use workshops to stress-test ideas and to help clients with messaging problems. We involve our designers to help push ideas around and select the best solutions.
As a team we cover a wide base of skills from design to front and back-end development. Ideally you’d have some knowledge of how websites are put together. If you’re able to code that would be a bonus, but not essential.
Improve with us
We’re always trying to learn new skills and regularly refresh our workflow to include new ideas and deliverables.
We’re ambitious but the environment is relaxed and sociable. The only thing we demand is that you never stop learning and trying to make the next project better than the last. We’ll give you the independence and support to produce your best work.
Since being set up 10 years ago by a designer and a developer Lighthouse has grown into a highly adaptable and flexible team of talented people. We’re not huge but have a big mix of skills allowing us to take projects from concept through to design and development pushing out excellent work and constantly striving to better ourselves.
Starting out as a web design and development studio we’ve changed a little over the years. While we still work with clients to create awesome websites a large part of our business is now spent working with startups and enterprise clients to bring new digital products to market.
We believe the a happy team is the key to success. Among the perks we offer are:
- Bonus scheme and pension plan
- Free weekly company lunch on Fridays
- Company creative outings and hack days
- Training and events budgets
- Booze (and non-booze) in the drinks fridge for all
