Ux Researcher and Designer

We are growing our team again and this time we are looking for a UX Designer / Researcher to help us enhance and develop the overall easyfundraising User Experience. The role will include usability testing, wireframing, prototyping, running workshops and more. This is a new role to the business and the sole Ux resource and with a totally new platform on the way presents a real opportunity for a strong candidate to come in and make their mark within a popular service.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Setting the Ux agenda: working closely with marketing and product teammates to identify research topics that will help achieve the business objectives.
  • Usability testing and user research: when the project demands it, you will plan, run, and deliver design recommendations from usability tests and other kinds of user research. This will range from cheaper "street recruitment" and "cafe testing" through to more complex briefs that involve participant recruitment and dedicated testing facilities. You need a proven track record in planning, running and delivering user research and this needs to include developing criteria, screening participants, creating materials, tracking results, and coordinating incentives as needed.
  • Desk research: we may need you to carry out competitor evaluations, hands on evaluations, and be capable of using and shaping findings within analytics.
  • Ideation and new feature development: you'll be asked to help shape the product roadmap (based on output from your analysis and research findings), and help flesh out the proposition of new feature ideas. You'll have a strong knowledge of web development and the capabilities of technology to solve problems and will be able to develop these ideas and take them from whiteboard sketch through to wireframe or prototype. You should have the knowledge and experience of using various wireframing and prototyping tools and be able to select what is best for the job.
  • Redesign and optimisation of existing features: if you look at our website now, you'll see it has numerous usability issues and has a dated aesthetic. We're in the process of overhauling our entire technology stack, effectively giving us a 'blank canvas' to work from. We'll be reviewing all key journeys and pages and doing lots of AB and MV Testing on the new platform, which you'll be helping us with.
  • Collaborative design workshops like any good UX designer, you'll need to be a capable workshop facilitator. You'll need to select workshop activities, plan workshops and deliver findings back to the organisation.
  • Daily cross functional working: you need to be capable of working across teams to fulfil different and sometimes conflicting agendas. You will very much be a middle man between design, product management, marketing and development.
