UX Designer – Shortbreaks

Up to £30,000 DOE + profit share + benefits

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...

  • 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.
