Deadline
30 January 2020

We are experts in digital; providing strategic direction, user centred design and robust engineering to enterprise clients.

Our passion for delivering quality at every stage of this process sets us apart from the competition and makes Sputnik a great place to work. This commitment to quality ensures we have happy clients and a happy team that have the freedom to explore and innovative; pushing the limits of their expertise, while leaving no technical debt behind them.

The reason we can work for large corporate clients such as GoCompare, BPP University, Visit Scotland and Acino Pharma is down to the shared values and complementary skills of our team. We treat each other and our clients with professionalism and integrity respecting each other’s abilities and expertise and providing support to team members where it is needed.

As our Senior Designer, you will bring significant experience and expertise in UX / UI, contribute ideas to new projects, and to how exciting journeys can be improved to delight users and improve conversion.

You will be responsible for devising customer journeys, wireframing, designing responsive websites and mobile apps – ensuring every detail has been considered, from sticky headers to touchscreen targets.

You will lead the way when it comes to conceptualising original ideas that bring simplicity and user-friendliness to complex design challenges. 

Our clients also require traditional design services, such as brochure design and branding. While these are not core services, we are still required to deliver them to the standards of a specialist design agency.

 It’s important that you have an understanding of traditional design and marketing fundamentals, including audience demographics, typography, colour theory etc.

 We appreciate that’s a big ask, but if you combine traditional design skills, practical problem solving skills and an awareness of the latest UI patterns, you’re probably the person we want to speak to.


What you'll bring

  • A deep understanding of UI design across web and mobile applications
  • A keen eye for detail mixed with the ability to rapidly solve problems. Using everything from a basic sketch to high fidelity, interactive prototypes
  • An appreciation for, and understanding of Front-End development
  • Experience using tools including Figma, Adobe, Balsamiq, Zeplin and Adobe Creative Suite
  • Great people skills and a professional attitude – organised, respectful and driven
  • A passion and interest in design trends, continuously learning and sharing your subject matter expertise with the wider team
  • Empathy for how a design will respond once it’s been deployed and content begins to change.
  • A strong understanding of CRO and multi-variant testing
  • Traditional design skills, including illustration, typography, photo retouching etc
