Senior/Lead Digital Product Designer
A big hello from the team at Compucorp!
Our mission is to enable digital transformation in organisations that deliver social good. We work with Charities across their digital stack allowing them to reimagine the way they work so they can focus on impact.
We do things a little differently, basing all our solutions on open source products, having flexible working practices and real team mentality.
As a distributed team with our head office in London, the role will allow you to work remotely, but also to meet and work with talented people from all over the world. Although this is a full-time role, we can offer flexible hours and uniquely friendly and supportive culture to grow and develop your skills.
Let’s face it - most open source tools are ugly and poorly designed. Products developed by communities focus on what’s essential not what is elegant, with features and function prioritised over user experience. We want to change that by taking the open source products we work with, already used by hundreds of thousands of people, and turning them into beautifully crafted user centric solutions, which are as intuitive as they are engaging for people to use.
We have a unique opportunity for a senior digital product designer to take a leadership role in our growing team.
You will set overall direction and provide mentorship to our mid level designers working cross product and platform to unify our approach and strategy to digital product design.
You will be excited about tackling complex user interface challenges relating to business applications for the non profit sector, such as CRM, HR and finance systems but will also be equally comfortable working with Website, app and branding projects.
You will have a rock solid technical understanding of responsive and mobile layout principles for digital design. You will set best practices and create processes that ensure the best developer handoff and final outcome possible.
You will be experienced in using the latest design tools such as Sketch, Principle, Abstract and giving direction of best practice for collaboration to junior members of a team.
What we value in this role:
* You have formed opinions over what makes great digital design but are open to the thoughts and views of others
* You love the challenge of making complex things feel simple
* You can convey conceptual design problems and solutions clearly to other team members
* You’re someone who likes to implement processes and ensure they are followed
* You seek to learn from others as well as share your knowledge and experience
* You are as supportive as you are a leader
Experience and skills:
*Experience delivering simple and elegant design solutions to complex business applications
*Experience working with and leading a team of other designers
*Expert knowledge of Sketch, Principle and Abstract
*Comfortable with Invision and other interactive mockup tools
*Expert experience with fluid design principles and best practices
*Strong knowledge of UX component libraries and interaction design
*Previous experience in enterprise software design
*Demonstrable experience creating user interface toolkits for web applications
*Desirable: Some basic HTML/CSS skills, ability to review developer code to see where issues may lie
* Desirable: previous experience in working with CRM system(s), and good understanding of CRM UX/UI challenges
