InMotion is hiring a

Senior UX Designer / Front-End Developer

London, United Kingdom

What we’re looking for

We are hiring a Frontend Developer, Visual Designer & UX expert to lead the design, creation and experimentation of new service concepts, and provide expert consultancy to our ventures, bringing to life UX and design solutions that enhance our product and delight our customers.

Working as part of our technical team, you’ll be our Front-end Developer and UX Design expert-in-residence. With your brilliant understanding of user-centred app and web design principles, you’ll work to improve our services through clever and beautiful design. As part of Jaguar Land Rover, design matters to us. It’s part of who we are and the great experiences we deliver to our customers. We want our apps and services to be as compelling to look at, interact with and use as a Jaguar or Land Rover vehicle. That’s some challenge!

You’re passionate about the whole design process, from technical architecture to user psychology, A/B testing, UX best practices to beautiful UI. You’ll take ownership of design features and work in the Lab with our product leaders to create user flows and wireframe out ideas, bringing them to life with your own visual design, to then help them test new ideas, business models and value propositions.

You’ll work closely with the rest of the technical team, to engineer and develop prototypes and use customer validated learning to shape and develop the product concept. You’ll set the benchmark for all other designers to follow, to develop our design and UX DNA, which then all our ventures will follow.

You’ll develop and implement a blueprint across a range of ventures. You’ll work closely to support their development, overseeing the direction and implementation of your blueprint to ensure that products are intuitive and engaging, delivered to the highest quality.

You’ll work as part of a cross-functional, collaborative team of engineers who specialise mainly in React.js, Node.js, Ruby, JavaScript and HTML5, product leaders in the Lab and a range of ventures in our Accelerator studio. You’ll be expected to contribute to the development of all our products and services.
