As a rapidly growing customer experience (CX) agency, we need you to help us build exciting digital experiences for our clients, locally and globally. We’re searching for a talented UX Designer and we’re hoping that someone is you.

About you
You’ve got several years agency experience under your belt. You’re excited about building brilliant digital experiences that surprise clients and delight users; balancing psychology, technology and design.

What you'll do
Working across a collaborative and multidisciplinary team you will be critical in how we produce, create and design digital experiences.
From the beginning, you’ll be involved in creating modular, scalable wireframes and mockups that creatively apply consistent interface patterns across a variety of use cases and device types, including desktop, tablet and mobile.
As part of a specialised and dedicated project team, you’ll be integral; shaping the direction of the company's design direction, and helping to continually improve and optimise the designs and techniques we use. You'll work alongside highly experienced developers and designers with plenty of opportunities to learn. We’ll also give you the time ( and funds ) to develop your own skills independently, with training courses and conferences to ensure you grow alongside us.
