Lead Product Designer

  • London
  • Full-time


Bain & Company is one of the world's leading strategy consulting firms, where bold thinking, inspired people and a passion for results come together for extraordinary impact. A key aspect for achieving our mission is ADAPT, our global digital experts team with capabilities in product design, product management, design thinking and software development. We help our clients solve their toughest business problems and provide strategic advantage fueled by design, technology and analytics.


Our Lead Product Designers are hands-on design leaders and the backbone of our design capability. In this role you will apply a user centered design approach to create impactful digital solutions in an integrated team with strategy consultants, product managers, data scientists and software developers. You will lead the full design process hands on: user research, synthesis, concept creation, prototyping, testing and high-fidelity UI and visual design. Additionally you will contribute to product strategy, act as the foremost advocate for the power and value of design, and collaborate closely with diverse client stakeholders to ensure knowledge transfer.

As a core member to the team you will also help to bring ADAPT to the next level as a business. This includes supporting the recruitment of new design talent, coaching junior team members, contributing to design culture and evangelizing our capabilities within the firm.

We are looking for a highly collaborative, intelligent, ambitious individual with exceptional problem-solving and communication skills. You’re comfortable with ambiguity and change, and have a passion for making an impact in high stake business environments.


 Success in this role will require: 

  • Several years (minimum 5, preferred 10+) of hands on experience in designing and bringing digital products and services to market (or equivalent experience)
  • A thorough understanding of UX/UI, Design Thinking and Agile methods
  • Fluency in working with state of the art UI and prototyping tools (e.g. Sketch, Figma, Flinto, Invision, Adobe CS)
  • Excellent communication, presentation, facilitation and people management skills
  • A highly ambitious and entrepreneurial spirit with the ability to thrive in a dynamic and fast-paced environment 

This role requires approximately 40-60% European-wide travelling to clients as needed. Your home base will be in our London office.
