This Digital Product Development Agency works with a wide variety of clients to understand their needs, shape their product and then deliver the development work.

The role

As the senior Product Designer, you will be working alongside the Product and Development teams to deliver user-centred solutions for their clients.

You will be client facing and take on a key role in communicating UX solutions that you develop. You must be a confident and articulate communicator, conveying the value the company brings to their clients.

You will work with a Product Manager to understand the needs of the client, gather the requirements for not just what they say they want, but what they really need.

As you develop a product's design you'll work with the client to explain and confirm how the user experience meets the business' requirements, as well as clarify how the underlying core assumptions and hypotheses have shaped the user interface.
