About The Role

Hippo Digital is looking to build a talent pool of talented Interaction/UX Designers for current and future contractor opportunities. Due to the variety of our projects and clients, we have Inside IR35 positions available on a short-term or long-term basis with fully remote/flexible working arrangements. Interaction/ UX designers ensure that people using a service can do what they need to do, when they need to do it, in a way that is easy for them. Working with user researchers, they identify what users need from a service and use that information to inform their design decisions. Champions of user-centred design, they work with other Agile team members to test and iterate designs, and advise clients on how to get the best from Interaction/UX design.

  • Lead multidisciplinary Agile teams to design services that meet identified user needs
  • Advocate inclusive approaches and styles within interaction/UX design
  • Build supportive relationships with clients and stakeholders, yet challenge ideas and manage difficult conversations
  • Support other Interaction/UX designers and advise other colleagues on how to get the best from Interaction/UX design
  • Promote Hippo’s people-centred design offer both internally and externally

Skills and experience that you need

  • Advanced interaction/UX design skills, with experience of applying these across different environments
  • Experience of working in multidisciplinary Agile teams to design and deliver people-centred services
  • Experience of designing for diverse users, including those with accessibility or assisted digital needs
  • Proven experience of championing interaction/UX and service design approaches
  • Experience of mentoring/training other interaction/UX designers
  • Advanced communication and stakeholder management skills, with the ability to manage conflict and convey difficult messages with tact and sensitivity
  • A good understanding of other Agile roles across design, product and tech
  • Strong consultancy and leadership skills, and confidence in exploring problem spaces with clients to determine the most appropriate way forward
