Skedulo

Skedulo is a fast-growing software company headquartered in San Francisco and with offices in the United Kingdom, Australia and Vietnam. If you’re drawn to solving interesting hard problems, Skedulo is for you. Over the past 20 years, less than 5% of software investment has been focused on the needs of the world’s 2.7 billion mobile workers, and the mobile workforce is our sole focus. Join us as we build a scalable platform for the world’s largest brands working with the most respected technology partners.

At Skedulo, creating a beautifully simple and elegant user experience is at the centre of everything we do. We have a relatively small design team, but play a big role in shaping the vision for the product and the company. Our design process starts with understanding the context of use, user needs and behaviours and is heavily focussed on prototyping to bring to life ideas. It also involves close collaboration with teams including Engineers, Product Managers, and Marketers to solve complex problems.


About the role

We are looking for an experienced, versatile, Senior UX Designer (Contract) who is passionate about empowering our users through thoughtful and elegant design. This role is based in London, or can be 100% remote anywhere in the UK.

In this role you will help shape design for our Platform user experience, working as part of a cross-functional product development team with colleagues in Engineering and Product Management. The Platform team at Skedulo is responsible for creating the tools and capabilities that allow Skedulo’s partners to configure, customise and extend Skedulo, and is an integral part of the company’s future vision and growth plans.


About you

  • Interaction design is the most important skill set for this role, and you’ll be in your element creating prototypes, mockups, wireframes and flows. You are able to take complex features and requirements and translate them into elegantly simple user interface designs.
  • You're able to collaborate with engineers and product managers to develop a shared vision for the product offering and feature set.
  • You're passionate about design systems and can work with other designers and engineers to create and evolve a design language, it's components and patterns.
  • You’re a self-starter and can work quickly to take a design challenge and develop your own plan of attack, bringing others in the team on the journey with you. You think in “hours and days” rather than “weeks and months”.
  • You’ve got great prototyping chops and can use tools like Sketch, Invision, Axure, Flinto or Principle to deliver interactive prototypes of your designs.
  • You have excellent communication and influencing skills. As part of this role you’ll need to be as at home working through a detailed feature flow with the engineering team as you are gathering feedback directly from our customers.
  • You know how and when to apply user research techniques to uncover user insights and get feedback on your designs, and you enjoy getting out of your chair and spending time with the people that use the product the most.
  • You like to work as part of a diverse, multidisciplinary team and deliver real results. You check your ego at the door, and are comfortable collaborating with others to get the best result for the entire team.
  • You're a team player, and are happy to put in time to mentor and coach more junior members of the team

Requirements

  • 5+ years design experience, with strong proficiency in user experience design
  • Experience designing and shipping applications or software across a variety of platforms
  • A portfolio of work that demonstrates a breadth of interaction design skills (wireframes, prototypes, flows and specifications)
  • Excellent communication skills, with the ability to engage stakeholders throughout the design journey


Desired Skills & Experience

  • Experience working on complex platform products, applications or software tools
  • A grounding in software engineering, and/or a proven ability to understand complex technical concepts
  • An eye for clean and clear visual design, with experience working with and contributing to Design Systems
