Designer

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.

About Us

We are changing software development. A lot of companies manage software according to 20th Century practices, with 20th Century software results. We are helping companies to shift away from projects, which deliver outputs, to product teams, who are responsible for business outcomes. We deliver this through our conferences and training offerings which provide motivating case studies from companies who have made the shift as well as the skills and knowledge required to adopt better ways of working. Our key event has grown from zero to over 1,500 attendees in four years, with a core audience profile of UX researchers, UI designers, developers and product managers. We've been growing a lot - but we're just getting started!
