Clearleft is a world-renowned digital design consultancy based in Brighton’s popular North Laine. We work for a range of high profile clients including Channel 4, Mozilla and NBCUniversal. We also run three popular design conferences and a couple of small tech start-ups.
Clearleft is a friendly and collaborative team of interaction designers, graphic designers and creative technologists. We’ve been in the field of User Experience design since the early days, and love sharing our ideas with the community through books, presentations and conferences. Thanks to this we’ve been lucky to work with some amazing clients including Channel 4, eBay and Mozilla, and find guiding them through the design process deeply rewarding.
We’re currently looking for an experienced UX designer to join our small and supportive team in the heart of Brighton. Ideally you’ll be somebody with around six years of experience and be able to show us a portfolio of sketches, experience maps and clickable prototypes and other such design assets.
That said, we do know that good design is more than a collection of deliverables, and a good designer is more than a fancy portfolio. We’re looking for somebody who is curious about the world and wants to make our digital lives better through the sensitive application of design.
We think good designers are facilitators, so a large part of your role will be leading our clients through the design process. You should be confident running a variety of stakeholder workshops to help extract requirements, set vision and iterate through ideas. You should also be able to present your findings in whatever way works best, from simple presentations or screencasts, through to detailed concept maps or day-in-the-life cartoons.
We don’t mind if you sketch your solution on paper, wireframe in OmniGraffle or hand-code an HTML prototype. However, we do prefer a fast, iterative approach and “just enough” fidelity.
Clearleft’s ethos is to hire smart, capable people and give them the support, trust and freedom to do a good job. We’ve worked hard to create a nurturing environment that will let you do the best work of your career, free from the typical constraints of big agency culture.
Every member of the Clearleft team brings something new to the mix. We’re keen to hear from people with a diverse range of work and life experiences. However we’re especially interested in hearing from folks with multi-platform experience.
We also believe that a positive, creative culture is at the heart of our success, so we organise regular events such as movie nights, team training days (like sketching and letterpress printing) and company days out (like photography classes and trips to the Design Museum). We also provide each member of the team a £1,000 training budget, so if you’ve always wanted to go to the IA Summit or Interaction14, now you can.
