UX Consultant (interaction design focus)

We’re proud that we get to design work that’s seen by hundreds of millions of people around the world. As we continue to grow, that level of exposure is growing. These days, if we can improve our clients work by just a fraction of a percent, that’s worth tens of millions of pounds. Details matter. We’re looking for people to help craft those details – the flow of a sequence of screens, the animations and transitions between them, the micro interactions that barely get noticed but that make all the difference. Like us, you’ll love collaborating. Our UX Consultants work in small teams with visual designers, front-end developers and our clients to come up with designs that make a difference. You’ll need to be comfortable playing an active role in workshops, sketching, and sharing ideas early in the process. The role covers all aspects of UX – from researching users and designing with data to setting out an IA and creating user journeys. But while you’ll have skills in all these areas, you’ll have a particular interest in interaction design – sketching, prototyping, crafting the flows and the details of a great interaction. We’ve offices in London and Bristol. The role would be based in either location. Your experience • A portfolio of projects that demonstrates an understanding of layout, priority, interaction, flow and feedback. • The ability to explain your ideas clearly, referring to general or project-specific design principles. • Strong client relationship and consulting skills. • Experience of developing IAs and user research. • Great organisational skills and attention to detail. • The right to live and...

Job vacancy: Help us tell our story

Background We’ve been pretty good at telling our story – what we believe in, what we do, what impact we have – since we started cxpartners. People tell us that they have a strong sense of who we are and that when they meet us and visit us, we match their expectations. We share our story (with each other, our peers, our clients and our prospective clients) in several places: blogging speaking at conferences interviews and articles in magazines writing books through case studies In the past that’s often come down to the activity of a few key people in cxpartners. As we grow larger, we want to make sure their good habit stays at the heart of our work. We need you to support our growing team in developing that good habit. We need you to find the narrative threads in our work and help everyone tell our story and to stand back and ensure there’s a plan and balance in what we choose to talk about. Our ideal candidate It’s not just about writing – writers prefer a solitary life. We’re looking for a storyteller to engage with our audience. We want someone who believes in the power of stories to transform the world – someone who’s interested in the way stories shape people’s lives and thinking. You’re probably interested in everything from Aristotle’s ‘Rhetoric’ to Chip and Dan Heath’s ‘Made to Stick’. But we also want someone who believes in our story. We want to create products and services (mostly websites and apps) that make people’s lives a little better. We do that by involving people...
