  • Playing an active role in crafting seamless end-to-end user experiences, simplifying intricate technical aspects for user comprehension.
  • Establishing and cultivating a robust design process within the team, which includes maintaining a comprehensive design system and actively contributing to product strategy.
  • Being a vocal advocate for users and championing human-centric design principles in cross-functional meetings, ensuring user needs remain at the forefront of decision-making.
  • Utilising insights gleaned from user interviews, usability tests, and other research methodologies to inform and drive data-informed design choices.


  • You bring significant experience as a part of a high-quality Product Design team, including at least an initial experience leading a Product Design team
  • You have experience working in a customer-first B2C environment
  • You bring a proven track record of delivering products from concept to launch, and beyond
