We’re looking for a UX designer to join us in the Holiday Extras Shortbreaks team. Working with brands such as Ambassador Theatre Group, Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, and Legoland; the workload is fast-paced, but the atmosphere is fun.
We know that designers come in many different flavours – the person we are looking for will have the right mix of design thinking and practical skills, and must have a good understanding of UX – within the context of web design. You will need to be pragmatic, proactive and understand the challenges and the opportunities that a large e-commerce business has to offer. Your mission will be improving what we put in front of our customers, and you will have a passion for solving their problems.
You’ll have a strong portfolio and you’ll confidently work collaboratively to discover, generate and communicate new ideas. You’ll be working alongside developers, copywriters and product owners to create awesome user experiences online; you should thrive on feedback, critique and iteration.
We want to talk to you if you tick all of these boxes...
- HTML, CSS
- Responsive design
- Working knowledge and use of Bootstrap or similar framework
- Photoshop, Sketch or equivalent
- UI design for multi-branded applications
- Strong communication skills and a flexible, pragmatic approach
It would be great if you have experience with…
- User research and requirements gathering
- Sharing design thinking and recommendations to clients & colleagues (face to face)
- Creating concise and clear documentation, where appropriate
- Analysing Web analytics
We are looking for the best to join our team. We pride ourselves on being able to offer exciting challenges in the world of UX, whilst providing a fantastic environment in which to work. Along with pension, medical insurance, enhanced maternity, cycle-to-work schemes, etc we also have birthday days off, ‘Anytime +’ (our flexible working philosophy that says if you are contactable and connected it doesn’t matter where or when you work), and Project Lounge – our fortnightly ‘freedom to learn’ RnD sessions.
