Entale: UX/UI Designer (Contract)

full-time Founders Factory London

We are looking for a talented UX/UI Designer to bring the user experience to life for customers of our new tech startup, Entale.

Entale is a new platform for publishing and consuming rich media and enhanced audio.

Were innovating on the podcast format - adding enhanced content and social shareability, as well as deep analytics and discovery tools - to make the audio experience more rich and engaging for the listener across multiple platforms. Were also creating modern publishing tools, to facilitate simpler and quicker content creation, as well as new ways to tell compelling stories.

We are backed by Founders Factory, the Accelerator/Incubator created by Brent Hoberman and Henry Lane Fox, and count The Guardian as our media partner. We are based in the Founders Factory offices, which encourages a modern and tech-focused culture. No strict work hours, a host of Slack channels, a beer fridge, ping pong table, an open plan office and quiet working spaces for breakout and brainstorming.

We are looking for a talented UX/UI designer to help the tight-knit product team shape the user experience of multiple elements of the product, from initial concepts, through prototypes, to detailed specifications and designs.

You should be skilled at crafting beautiful, intuitive interfaces on a variety of platforms but also enjoy diving deeper into the product design process and solving big problems - whilst also delighting users and stakeholders. You’ll need to be able to respond and thrive in an ever-changing, fast moving environment, and be passionate about shipping products, not just about designing them.

This role is an initial 3 month contract position for 3 days per week, and as Entale grows it has the potential to develop into a permanent role for the right candidate.

  • A structured approach to understanding users, and framing design decisions around your findings, with experience designing and running user research and workshops
  • Intense focus on production value and attention to detail, showcasing a portfolio of products both beautiful and functional
  • At least three years of design experience in roles demonstrating leadership and ingenuity
  • Experience designing beautiful and functional interfaces across platforms
  • Comfortable thinking fast on paper and throwing ideas away
  • Skilled at developing and crafting wireframes, user flows and prototypes
  • Proficient skills in at least one creative suite and prototyping tools - we use Sketch for design, share designs in Zeplin and track projects in Trello
  • Experience working in a collaborative, fast-paced startup environment alongside Product Managers and developers a bonus
