Are you a curious UI designer with a sharp eye and adaptable approach who wants to help our online experiences shine bright?
IN A NUTSHELL
At Bellroy, we pour our heart, soul and many design hours into helping people move with greater simplicity and ease. Our online assets play a huge part in making that happen all around the world, and we're looking for a UI designer to make our customer experiences as beautiful and delightful to navigate as possible.
Reporting to the Creative Director, you'll work collaboratively within our digital team to create compelling brand experiences for Bellroy's digital channels - our website and global digital marketplaces (of which there are currently 4). In an agile environment, you'll prototype design updates and concept new site features, ensuring they are both aesthetically and functionally sound. You'll work closely with engineers to discuss feasibility and design implementation. And you'll partner with our UX/Product Champion to map customer journeys and optimize our website, applying those same learnings to our TMall, Rakuten and Amazon channels.
If you can bring your sharp design eye and adaptable approach to help our online experiences shine, we'll offer a world class team to learn from, the tools and resources to help you do your best work, and the support you need to flourish.
WHAT IT'S LIKE TO WORK FOR BELLROY
We work with a growth mindset, experimenting, iterating, shifting and always looking for better ways to achieve our goals. So, working with our team of creatives, designers, analysts and developers, you'll play a critical role in helping our digital experiences become even more compelling. In return, we'll give you the tools you need to do a great job, the space to make that happen, and the support you need to flourish. Bellroy is located in a great Fitzroy studio where you will work together closely with our in-house team of back and front end developers, working primarily in Ruby on Rails. You'd be leading the UI design and working closely with our developers, UX Designer and Product Champion, and the Customer Insights team to really understand what our customers want and need, and to figure out the best way to deliver an awesome experience for them.
YOU COULD BE THE ONE, IF...
You are a smart and curious thinker who can't resist a challenge. You're collaborative, creative and optimistic. You appreciate (deeply) the beauty of design, and are fascinated by how it can impact human behavior. Your experience as a designer has shown that you can create high quality visual designs supported by great typography, grids and color theory. You're excited by working with a team to deliver world class customer experiences.
While communication through layouts and images is your strength, you're good with words too. You can effectively communicate conceptual ideas, design rationale and specifics of the user-centered design process, and work through feedback and external input without breaking stride. You're approachable, open-minded and a real team player (which is lucky, because we're a real team). You're comfortable with some uncertainty, and enjoy tasks that involve deep exploration. You enjoy predicting the outcome of your designs and revel in A/B testing to update your knowledge and expertise.
You think mobile first, and understand just how different devices play a part in our digital experiences. Your basic understanding of UX best practices and principles helps you pull it all together, for a seamless design experience no matter how (or where in the world) it is viewed.
We're a global business, and we love making Bellroy accessible to folks in all corners of the globe, in a way that resonates with them. So it helps that you're super curious about cultural differences and like to observe what works best in certain global markets from China to the USA, Australia to Japan.
