At Vitaccess, the UX Designer is responsible for helping develop the user experience of our applications and our platforms. You will be working closely with the developers, designers, business analysts, and of course the users(!) to develop the participant experience and user interface for our mobile study apps.
As part of a small but enthusiastic team, you should be prepared to turn your hand to anything. We are looking for someone to develop and advance the UX and UI across all of our platforms.
You will report directly to the Director of Technology and will not need years of experience. What will be much more important is a passion for creating outstanding user experiences and making the complex appear simple! You’ll start out as our only in-house UX Designer so you’ll need to be confident in that role, but you’ll have the full support of our in-house team and we’ll get you up to speed in no time!
Gather and evaluate user requirements, needs and opportunities in collaboration with the Developers, Business Analysts and Consultants.
Develop UI mockups and prototypes that clearly illustrate how functions will work and look like.
Create wireframes and create user stories, journeys and flows.
Research and analyse user interface data and identify improvements to improve our platform or applications UI.
Help implement new features predominantly on mobile, but occasionally also web, applications
Enhance and integrate designs with the existing development team.
Identify and troubleshoot UX problems across the platforms
You’ll definitely be good at making strong and effective working relationships with the different teams within the business. You don’t need to be a techie but you’ll know what good software looks like and will have an ability to think about the design of UX and what it should look and feel like.
We are looking for the following experience:
Familiar with modern development frameworks so you know what is achievable
Knowledge of Agile (Scrum or other)
Experience using the tools required for UI build and test processes
Previous experience in an industry with varied, sometimes vulnerable users, or users with limited digital experience. Ideally healthcare, education, social services, charity sector or similar.
Bonus points for:
Any experience of mobile-device based UX design and UI delivery is a plus
Knowledge of automation frameworks and user testing
Experience working with outsourced teams
If this sounds like you, excellent! Get in touch!
