Product/UX Designer 

Social media is chaotic, unstructured, unpredictable, exciting. It is the voice of today.

We love it, because at Brandwatch we bring structure and meaning to these voices by harnessing the power of social to drive intelligence and answer the questions that matter most to our clients.

We are growing our product design team and are looking for someone to join us on our quest to build amazing SaaS products which push the boundaries of convention, have flair, originality, and make our customers sing out loud with delight.

We want the ooh and we want the ahh! We want personality, and we want grace. If you are a talented Product/UX designer who is motivated by any of the above and want to work in a highly collaborative design team where your ideas count and can tangibly make a difference, then this could be the perfect role for you.

About the team you’ll be joining

Our product design team is split across Brighton, Stuttgart and Berlin. We have a wide range of skills from pure user research through to pure visual design, and a number of people with a blend in between.

About the role

This is a role based in Brighton. It’s a great opportunity for you to help us innovate, develop and deliver a consistently brilliant and delightful product experience.

You must:

  • Have at least 2 years aggregated commercial experience working as a UX designer on digital products (web apps/SaaS preferred over mobile/native)
  • Present a portfolio during your interview that demonstrates excellence in your craft - show us your process of translating outcomes into outputs
  • Be able to drive great UX design within a cross-functional team of Product Managers, Marketers, technical architects and developers
  • Be able to plan, organise and execute all aspects of the design stage from concept to prototype
  • Be able to distil and translate complex requirements into modern, accessible and inviting experiences
  • Have experience in planning and conducting user research (generative and evaluative) and translating those findings into design opportunities
  • Document and communicate your work efficiently and effectively to a variety of stakeholders and colleagues from juniors through to execs

You might:

  • Understand and be conversant with the core design principles regarding colour, typography, psychology, movement and behaviour
  • Know how to work with established design systems / pattern libraries
  • Have a passion for data visualisation
  • Have designed and tested information dashboards before
  • Have experience designing for mobile contexts

We develop our staff. We care about everything, and above all we support each other.

Working for Brandwatch

Brandwatch Brighton is where it all began. We can be found in the vibrant North Laines in our contemporary offices. Whilst we don’t believe in stereotypes, we host subsidized onsite pilates and yoga classes along with our Juice Mondays. We have cupboards bursting with snacks, a well stocked drinks fridge, sushi lunches, flexible working spaces, weekly massages and if you’re lucky we’ll even treat you to an ice-cream on the beach or our fortnightly massages right from the office.
