job description

UX Designers, I am looking for you. For a genuine UX job.  With our client your remit is clear. Their clients want to make something better, sometimes with internal applications, often with customer facing ones, sometimes with websites, and they will have clear and distinct business needs.

You come in at the start, with the conception and research. Aside from the need to stick within certain brand guidelines on occasion, your role will be to turn the business need into something usable, visually pleasing, and importantly, problem solving.  That problem could be a low ratio of visits to sales, correcting an application which interacts poorly with the user, or greenfield projects whereby you have no legacy application to work off at all.  If you are looking for a UX role which isn't just UI development, visual design, or implementing another persons idea from the higher echelons of the business, then this could be the one for you.  Whilst visually pleasing designs are important, the focus here is on User Centred Design.  

The role: 

  • Understanding the clients business needs, and a high level of what they would like to achieve. 
  • Perform research, analysis, and sketches to determine how you can design something to address the business needs
  • Within Agile methodology, design, create user journeys, prototype, and wireframe for the websites/Web applications you are responsible for
  • Work closely with developers to ensure that your designs are also appropriate for high performance development  


  • Good experience with User Research and Design for Applications or Websites focused on User Centred Design
  • Strong understanding of the Psychology behind HCI
  • Understanding of the limits and strengths of web development technologies (we do not expect you to be a developer, don't worry)
  • Fluency in English and German
  • Patience, and good listening skills 

If you are interested in a job with freedom to use your skills and education to the best of your ability, then I look forward to receiving your application.  Matt
