UX Designer

London, United Kingdom

We are looking for a talented UX Designer with a strong aptitude for research and product thinking, to join one of our cross-functional teams focused on exploring new AI and Machine Learning driven opportunities. It’s a permanent role, based in London (Old Street).

At Signal we want to help organisations identify risks and opportunities and see movements in the market before anyone else. We want to help leaders take bold decisions, safe that the data is on their side. We want to connect all those external data points together, uncover the unknown unknowns, and be at the very heart of the knowledge economy.

We’ve already built a world-class artificial intelligence platform for real-time information aggregation and analysis at a massive scale. We proved our value with monitoring and measurement products in the PR&Comms space, and are now joining the dots beyond.

We are friendly and informal people who are passionate about our brand as we all have a stake in our success. We have an inclusive environment, welcoming the skills and experience from many diverse backgrounds, and together we have created who we are and what we sell. We are proud of our achievements and continue to strive for the unknown.

We are a venture-backed company, having already secured £12m in its latest Series B funding round from investors such as GMG Ventures, MMC Ventures, Frontline Ventures, and Reed Elsevier.

You will be responsible for understanding users, their goals, behaviours, emotions, problems and beliefs, sketching, wireframing and testing ideas, and working out what the team should build next. You will be planning and conducting a wide range of user research activities, analysing research results to identify user insights, make data-driven recommendations, prioritise new feature opportunities and then turning them into rich user experiences.
