Web and Mobile Application UI Designer: Part Time

London, United Kingdom

Who we are

Pepper are a London-based startup on a mission to build the leading cloud and mobile SaaS platform for digitising traditional restaurant, coffee and bar businesses. We deliver white-labelled apps that allow businesses to handle mobile payments, loyalty, and marketing messages - thus engaging with their customers in real time, and increasing sales and operational efficiency. We have several hundred locations live across the UK and US.


We have an ambitious roadmap for building exciting new features into our SAAS platform and integrations to the many EPOS systems used in the restaurant, coffee and bar businesses.

Our customers are both the merchants who interact with our Customer Portal as well as the end-users who use the white-labelled apps. It is important to our business that all our merchants find our platforms easy to use and can manage their accounts with the minimum intervention from us. Our 1st generation portal has reached the limits of what we can achieve with it, so we are now investing in re-building the Portal from scratch.

We are looking for a UI designer to review what we have created, give us guidance on how to improve the usability and the visual appeal, and help us design the new features that we want to build.

In detail, we would want you to:

  • Review the current Portal web journeys and give us advice on how to improve the user experience
  • Review the style / colours / typography choices and improve our UI Kit and Style Guide
  • Provide ongoing design specifications and high fidelity mock-ups based on requirements for new features

Understanding UI as a component of UX will be critical for this role. This role is ideal for UI designers who want to move into UX design. You’ll be able to demonstrate good understanding and judgement of how UI is used to meet the UX requirements, rooted in the goals for the software.


An ideal candidate would have

  • 2+ years UI design experience
  • A good portfolio including designs for B2B or SAAS web applications
  • UI experience designing responsive web applications
  • Proficiency in Sketch and other design tools
  • Experience designing for React and Material-UI components
  • Pragmatism - happy to work within choices that aren’t practical to change
  • Must have fluent English


Remote work only. Once lockdown measures change, you have the option to come to our London Bridge office.

Candidates must be able to live and work in the UK.

We do not offer visa sponsorship.

Strictly no agencies please.


This is a part time role, either 2-3 days per week, or 5 days with reduced hours (we are happy to be flexible for the right candidate).

Over time, the role could become full time, although we would happily consider job-share

Salary: £40,000 - £45,000, Pro-rated
