Senior UI/UX Designer

London, United Kingdom

We are looking for an amazing Senior UI/UX Designer at carwow to come and join our Product Team. We’re a growing team of 90+ that hugely values the importance of design and usability.

Design is baked into the culture of our company, one of our co-founders is our Creative Director, and we look for excellent design in everything, from the website right down to beautiful chrome fire extinguishers in our shiny new office!

We have a clear aim, to become the absolute best way to choose and buy a new car. Car buyers face complex choices and a sea of information, and our mission is to make buying a car simple as well as enjoyable.
