What we're looking for

UXDX is seeking a highly ambitious, results-driven, self-motivated designer who wants to own and lead the brand and corporate design for our company brand - conferences, website, community and training courses. The role is key for creating a distinctive and unique identity for UXDX that communicates our key brand and messaging. You'll partner with Marketing, Training and Community team members to create a compelling vision for our audience.

Whats in it for you?

This is an incredible opportunity to make a meaningful impact on the future of a young, but fast growing company. You could join a large organisation where things move slowly and you have limited responsibilities / ability to stretch yourself or you could join UXDX and take the responsibility and ownership that you want. Be warned though that this is a double edged sword - your career progression will be quicker, but it will require a lot of hard work and stepping outside of your comfort zone.
