Brighton - Full-Time

As DabApps continues to grow we need to expand our design team and are looking for a User Interface Designer with excellent design skills and user focus.

To be successful in this role you’ll:

  • Gather and analyse requirements, using your UX and design skills to envision web and mobile user interfaces.
  • Communicate these to both the client and the development team through wireframes, concept designs, documentation, and proposals.
  • Have built up experience through several client projects and be looking for the next step in your career.
  • Have a portfolio of work that illustrates self-confidence in both visual and interaction design, helping users achieve their goals and clients hit their objectives.

  • Have a minimum of 1-3 years of experience in UI design and good references.

Core Skills

Below is a list of core technologies and skills we use at DabApps. We are not expecting any candidate to have experience or knowledge in all of these areas. What we are looking for is the ability and desire to learn the areas you don't have, when and if required. If you only have some of the below, you should still apply!

  • Systems thinking – breaking down concepts into user flows and UI ideas.
  • Responsive web design – an understanding of modern web apps.
  • Mobile design – an understanding of how modern cross-platform apps work.
  • Strong visual design skills (we use Figma primarily to design, though if you’ve used any modern design tools, we can train you up).
  • High fidelity mockups, wireframing and lo-fi prototyping.
  • Excellent time management skills.
  • Experience exploring new ideas on client-facing projects and communicating confidently directly with clients, in workshops or online.
  • An understanding of a user-centred design process (design, research, user testing, validation).
  • Bonus skills: Any interest in data visualisation, web and mobile accessibility, HTML/CSS/JS or at least a basic understanding of them.

Personal Specification

You should be able to work effectively in a team-based agile environment, collaborating with other designers, developers, and customers, as well as playing a part in the growth and direction of the company.

The role is flexible and can be split between remote-working and visiting our central Brighton office when required for meetings, so proximity to Brighton would be ideal.

If you’re interested in this role and have relevant skills and experience, please consider applying even if your background doesn’t perfectly match our ideal credentials. We are committed to diversity and especially encourage members of underrepresented communities to apply.

What are we offering you?

  • A competitive salary based on your experience.
