User Experience Designer - UX, UCD, Information Architecture, Web

An opportunity for User Experience Designer (UX) has opened in Oxford to join a R&D team building a 3D design tool. This is a great opportunity to design the feel and experience of a tool that will make a huge impact across the design and engineering community.

If you are interested in designing for creatives and have a passion for interaction design then this could be the role for you!

The Role

The UX Designer will be joining a R&D team consisting of Software Engineers, Mathematicians and Mechatronic Engineers. The project will be running into beta testing late in 2018, presenting the application to a large and highly engaged audience.

The UX Designer will explore and develop the User Experience design space, contributing ideas and design elements to the GUI. You will see your work quickly translate into awesome user-centred tools with which to create physical 3D printed objects.

Putting the user first, your involvement will span the full development cycle, including ideation, design, testing, documentation, and user-feedback-driven continuous improvement. The existing culture is user-focussed, with a low-touch, highly technical and knowledgeable management team. You will independently drive the UX design thinking across the company, moving towards a UX leadership role.

You will be designing systems that support fantastic user experiences for the 3D printing community, accessible to light users and the top standard for professionals and power-users. A wide range of professional and educational backgrounds would be desirable within the role, such as: the Creative industries; Human-Computer Interaction (HCI); Product Design; Interaction Design; User-Centred Design (UCD).

About You

This role is strongly UX focused - you will require a genuine interest in how users think, feel and behave when interacting with products, and passionate about using user research to design fantastic user experiences and to drive product success. The most important skill is a willingness to learn and to communicate and collaborate with our team.

This role would be suitable for a UX Designer with 1-5 years’ industry experience OR a postgraduate degree.

The UX Designer will bring the following traits:

  • Friendly, curious, creative
  • Understanding of interaction design and user-centered design best practices
  • Comfortable working from low-fidelity mockups up to high-fidelity test prototypes
  • Familiarity with user research methodologies
  • Collaborative and communicative across teams, willing to advocate your ideas, and open to critique and feedback

If you feel that you can fulfil these criteria, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

The offices are based South of Oxford, with ample parking and a car sharing scheme for those who typically commute by public transport.
