Contract Product Designer (Cardiff) in VC-Funded, Fast-Growing Software Startup – £400-450 Per Day – 3 Week Contract

Published: November 18, 2021.
Deadline for applicants: December 3, 2021.

We’re looking for an experienced Product Designer to collaborate with our Product team on enhancements to features within our cloud-based Research Management platform.

This is an initial three week contract to start as soon as possible, paying £400-450 per day.

Summary

  • Bipsync is a fast-growing, venture-funded SaaS startup with a product thoughtfully designed to optimise research management. Our customers are global multi-billion dollar hedge funds and asset managers.
  • Our product consists of several application interfaces across web, iOS and desktop. 
  • We’re looking for a Product Designer to help us evolve and improve our Research Management System. Initially this will involve a specific key feature but there are opportunities for further collaborations in future.
  • This is a fixed term role and we are able to consider people who would be working 100% remotely – but it would be an advantage to be in a timezone close to that of the UK.
  • We are an equal-opportunities company that values diversity and welcomes all qualified applicants.

Project description

  • Learn about Bipsync’s business, clients, and products so as to inform your work;
  • Communicate with key stakeholders to understand and unearth feature requirements;
  • Create functional wireframes and visual designs, considering how the feature should function within the application and its place within the wider platform;
  • Effectively communicate design processes, ideas and solutions to the product team;
  • Iterate on Bipsync’s application design, maintaining existing brand guidelines.

Requirements

  • Portfolio of work readily available alongside CV;
  • Experience with industry standard design tools (e.g. Sketch, Creative Cloud, Balsamiq, Figma, Framer X or InVision Studio);
  • A solid understating of UI/UX fundamentals;
  • Previous experience designing large web-based applications;
  • Experience of designing and delivering wireframes and mock-ups optimized for a wide range of devices and interfaces;
  • A good awareness of corporate branding, layout, colour theory and typography in digital media;
  • Excellent attention to detail and strong organisational skills with an adaptable and positive attitude;
  • Excellent presentation and communications skills;
  • Highly organised with the ability to prioritise your workload under pressure, meeting deadlines and handling multiple tasks simultaneously;
  • Proven experience of keeping up-to-date on the latest thinking in the world of design.

Optional but advantageous:

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Graphic Design or related field;
  • Experience in HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript;
  • Knowledge of accessibility standards (e.g. WCAG);
  • Experience performing user research to discover user needs;
  • Usability testing to iterate digital product designs.

Existing Design and Our Approach:

User Experience as at the heart of what we do – we’ve worked closely with clients to iterate the product interface to ensure every new feature, workflow, icon and click matches the productivity needs of today’s modern funds and their professional investors.

We strive to bring an accessible/friendly user-focused interface design to an industry where this focus is typically lacking.
