Designer (UX)

London

Full-time

We're currently on the lookout for talented designers to join us in our (pretty awesome) central London studio.

So if think you’ve got what it takes to create digital products and services that break new ground for some of the biggest brands on the planet, we can’t wait to hear from you.

About the role

At Potato, best in class software development and human-centred design are at the heart of everything we do. We’re a talented bunch of problem solvers who are committed to finding a better way; delivering smarter products that provide more satisfying experiences and more valuable outcomes for our clients and their users. Our clients include Google, Mozilla and the BBC.

As a design team, we want to appeal to both the head and the heart. As a designer we expect you to be able to constantly question and reassess both your own work and that of your team to make sure you’re delivering the right kind of experience for the intended audience.

We know that designers come in many different flavours and acronyms. We’re looking for someone who has the right mix of design thinking and practical skills, and is comfortable picking the right tools and activities for projects.

Whether it’s a rapid design and usability review of an existing app, or taking a project from requirements gathering to polished designs, prototypes and build you should be able to demonstrate clear design thinking and a thorough understanding of design principles, underpinned with evidence wherever possible and appropriate. You should be comfortable working both to clients’ existing design systems and starting completely from scratch on brand new projects with minimal guidance.

About you

You’ll have strong, demonstrable experience shaping multiple parallel projects from inception, and you’ll confidently work collaboratively to discover, generate and communicate new ideas. For this role in particular, we're looking for strong demonstration of UX methodologies, but you are expected to contribute through the entire product design process - we don't separate form from function within our design practice.

You should have strong soft-skills and be confident presenting in front of clients and colleagues alike while thinking quickly. Written communication is also an essential part of the role and you should be comfortable analysing and communicating content requirements as well as producing well-worded deliverables for clients.

Your experience and skills

Ideally, also:

Culture

Working shoulder-to-shoulder with some of the best engineers, coaches and product leads in town, we’ll give you the freedom to manage your own work and trust you to get things done. Want to work from home occasionally? Go for it. Need to unwind with a game of pool or some studio dog cuddles? All good. Ultimately, we just want to make sure that you have everything you need to help us create the best products possible.

You’ll have many opportunities for growth and learning: collaboration within teams, rotation to different products, experimentation on internal tools as well as involvement in our Potato Talks events, mentorship and conferences.
