UX Designer

Applied is a company on a mission - we are passionate about hiring the best person for the job regardless of race, gender or whether your dad plays golf with the CEO on weekends.

Our product isn't just good, it's important, but sometimes it's clunky, confusing, or just doesn't flow like it could.

We need a UX Designer to take what we have, break it down, build it back up and teach it to sing. Someone who's curious, user-driven, and creative and wants to help us leave the world just a little better than we found it.

We recently closed a seed investment of £1.5m, have already helped hire over 2,000 people over half of whom (according to our data) would have been normally overlooked.

These achievements rely on a team that truly stands for what we believe in: talent from diverse backgrounds, impatient to deliver and keen to get stuck in – full of ideas, energy, and an ability to inspire and support the growth of others around them. A team who thrives on learning, empathy and grit.

The job

We're looking for someone who is:

  • passionate about making high quality digital products that add real value to people's lives

  • compassionate about collaborating with others and managing uncertainty to get things done

  • keen to participate in and distill valuable insights from user research

  • comfortable iterating on design wire-flows and usability testing

In your first 6 months you'll:

  • meet our customers. We build features and products for real people and so we love going to chat to them, it's the best way to understand what they want.

  • learn about our Scrum process and get involved in all aspects from day one

  • plan, refine and design key new features in our platform as an integral part of the team

You'll benefit from:

  • equity in the business

  • open and fair pay (yep we put all payslips in the shared drive)

  • employee benefits package

  • being involved in other aspects of the business, from strategy, management and training, to shaping team culture

What are the next steps?

You don't need a CV, just your brain

To get started, pop your email in the top right of this page.

Instead of submitting a CV, you’ll answer some questions that are related to your day-to-day job. After the job closes, your answers will go through our sift process: all answers will be anonymised, randomised and then reviewed each answer by a panel of reviewers.

If you are shortlisted, we’ll invite you to interview, which will also be managed through our platform. Also, we love giving feedback, so you'll be able to see how well you performed at each stage of the application process.

Expected duration of this application process: 1-2 months.
