Job Description

We’re currently looking for someone to help us explore, craft and improve intuitive and inspiring digital products for our clients.


Your role is essential in helping explore and deliver digital products and services, through:

  • Craft: You produce and document elegant, usable and responsive user interfaces to a high fidelity for development, and efficiently create and consolidate UI components and reusable interaction patterns to form coherent design systems.

  • Brand: You build upon and extend brand guidelines, design languages and/or visual identities with new digital assets, and evolve brands by identifying, establishing, and embedding new brand experiences, design systems or visual identities.

  • Exploration: You repeatedly iterate and improve on an established design solution, based on evidence and sound rationale and confidently explore and steward a broad range of radically different ideas and potential design solutions with clients and colleagues.

  • Validation: You assess and validate whether any given design solution is likely to satisfy common or archetypal user, customer or audience behaviours. You understand common user behaviours, and provide evidence-based design guidance by assessing and validating specific design concepts and solutions with end-users, peers and client stakeholders.

  • Architecture: You structure and sequence information and content into effective user journeys, and extract, interrogate and document a coherent systemic overview of an experience, either as it exists today or as it is could be designed tomorrow, with support and guidance from colleagues.

You’ll have proven digital experience within the industry and also help support and nurture our design practice at Clearleft under the stewardship of the Design Director, through:

  • Relationships: You build good rapport and strong working relationships with colleagues and clients.

  • Direction: You can lead, manage or direct colleagues or team members in executing their work to an exemplary standard.

  • Teaching: You can coach and train colleagues or clients to learn new skills, techniques and ways of working.

  • Mentoring: You support the ongoing growth of colleagues, through informal, ad-hoc advice sessions and regular catchups.

  • Outreach: You're an active participant of the broader digital, interaction design or UX community.

What you value

We’re looking for self-driven, adaptable and bold individuals who thrive on the freedom and trust to do the work they love in the way they like. If you strive to do some of the most fulfilling work of your career, in a culture free from bureaucratic constraints, Clearleft may be the ideal place for you.

You get under the skin of problems

You're a big–picture thinker who insists on a deeper understanding of the problem before rushing into solutions. You intuitively focus on the needs of the people using your products and services, but are able to understand the complexity involved and pragmatism required in balancing them with the client’s organisational goals or technical constraints. 

You're a natural communicator

You understand that success can often rest on the quality of communication and the effort of making complex ideas simple through diagrams, concept maps, sketches or other visual communication techniques. You prefer discussion over emails and documents and pride yourself on expressing yourself clearly and with a strong sense of purpose that encourages trust from your colleagues and clients, whether that’s a conversation around a whiteboard, an interactive design concept or a ideation workshop.

You collaborate

You enjoy working through problems and challenges with clients and colleagues, and workshops are second nature to you. You do your best work collaborating within cross–functional teams and know that shared understanding and stakeholder alignment are the critical factors in achieving successful outcomes. You instinctively share your findings and ideas with colleagues, peers and the community, and love to see them adapt and evolve as a result of constructive criticism.

You value outputs, but not as much as outcomes

You know the best way to tackle complex problems is by remaining adaptable, understanding and respecting the differences between the various research, design or development methodologies (such as JTBD or Agile), while not following any practice dogmatically. You have an array of techniques to draw upon, but focus on the outcomes of your work, rather than fetishise the way it looks or how it’s delivered.

What we value

We hire for culture add, not culture fit. We encourage everyone to bring their own unique character to the team, feeling free to express themselves in a safe and supportive environment. Hiring people from diverse backgrounds enriches the team's values and the work we do, helping make us greater than the sum of our parts.
