Sr. User Experience Designer

Holborn, London



RBI’s rapidly growing Commercial Property brand EG (formally Estates Gazette) is looking for a proven senior UX designer to join their product development team, as they look to innovate and improve the UK PropTech industry.


The role

We are looking for an end to end designer who will be responsible for promoting and driving all aspects of the user-centred design process. Working with stakeholders and customers, you will research, understand and communicate user goals and business requirements. You will design user flow diagrams, wireframes and interactive prototypes to help shape products that solve complex problems for users. We work iteratively, testing our ideas early and often.


The role would suit a candidate with previous experience both of practicing UX in a large company and line management.


In more detail

•Define lead and implement good user experiences and design

•We are looking for a real designer, not a unicorn. Someone who isn’t afraid to try, fail, learn and do better

•Yes, you will conduct user tests, run workshops, define user experiences, prototype and design UIs but you won’t do it alone

•We are all for you pushing forward your designs but when you do, be sure you know why you are doing so and have the data to back it up

•You don’t own the design at EG but rather make it so great design can flourish and grow

•You’ll be working across all of our products, evolving current ones, improving old ones and help us define and develop our future ones

•You will manage one very talented designer and going forward potentially a few more graduate designers

•At the end of the day we are looking for a heart, a brain, a pair of eyes and a work ethic to match


The company

We are part of a global community, working as part of a hugely successful, socially-responsible FTSE100 organization, which maintains a keen focus on and commitment to great work-life balance and outstanding career opportunities. We are not ping pong tables and flipflops but we have the resources to get things done and the freedom to do them.




In more detail

•Our current Sr designer is only leaving because he is moving back home, otherwise he would have happily worked here until his retirement 

•Our developers are keen on making things better

•Our PMs are in constant contact with users as will you be, and together you will build beautiful things

•We believe in building things quickly and making them better as we go along


Your team

You will report into the Product Development team and help define the UX and design strategy of the company, working across functions. You’ll work and sit with all the PMs, across from marketing and behind the researchers. A short walk across the floor (yes, we own the entire floor) and you will work closely with all of the developers, sales teams and customer support rock stars all focused on building things with impact and that add value to our customers.




•Work closely with stakeholders to understand business goals and requirements

•Plan and lead user research to get a deep understanding of user problems, goals and requirements

•Create sketches, wireframes and quick prototypes and test them with internal domain experts and users to validate

•Design detailed interactive prototypes

•Run usability testing with work-in-progress and live products

•Manage and create style guides to inform future design decisions

•Support the entire new product development life cycle from discovery, through shaping and build to launch

•Organise and facilitate workshops to collaborate, learn and communicate the latest industry trends and best practices

•You will be responsible for managing and mentoring at least one UX designer including setting and reviewing objectives, career development planning and giving regular feedback and support

•From time to time providing guidance and support to other UX grands across the RBI brands

•Be a thought leader – participate in the local UX industry, create case studies and drive the education of our company on UX issues



•Relevant studies in design, UX and or appropriate experience

•Line management experience preferable

•Extensive experience creating wireframes, prototypes and related design documentation, some of which should be for b2b products

•Must be able to provide an online or digital portfolio that demonstrates your UX skills

•We use Sketch + InVision and Axure here. Ideally you do too, however if you have a tool you can use to allow prototyping / wireframing and UI then do use that.

•Workshop facilitation and presentation skills

•Strong interpersonal and communication skills

•You need to be able to communicate your ideas and design decisions

•You need to know how to test and run user sessions


The Benefits

We’re asking a lot from our successful candidate, however the benefits will be significant as you’d expect from a company like us. As well as having the opportunity to spend your working days with some really great people:


•We’ll pay you a competitive salary

•We’ll contribute generously to your pension and offer you 25 days of holiday each year (With the option to buy 5)

• You’ll have the opportunity to join a fantastic share-options programme.

•If you see a conference that seems valuable we’ll pay for you to go, If you need some software we’ll get it. Need the latest Macbook pro, done

•We hope you care about charity because you get 2 days a year to give to any charity in the UK

•We care about developing people, training them so they can leave but don’t want to
