Web UI Designer (Remote) - Learn mobile
Remote position, HQ in Leeds, West Yorkshire
Full-time

Pocketworks is looking for a remote-first Web UI designer to help us create clean, accessible and beautiful web applications. Immediate start if possible.

You will also be learning to design native mobile apps using Apple Human Interface Guidelines and Google's Material Design Guidelines.

Because you'll be managing the clients you work with, we suggest you have about 3+ years of industry experience if you want to apply.


IMPORTANT

This is a remote-first role for UK and European residents only. We have team mates who travel frequently, working from UK, Slovakia, Italy and Spain. Learn how we're committed to remote-first working.

Freelancers welcome if you are looking for a long-term gig that brings the benefits of a permanent role.


You will be working alongside Anna, our User Researcher, UX Lead and PO. We're a close team, so you'll also find Pocketworks to be a collaborative place where people are happy to jump in and help when you need it.

You'll enjoy working with us if you care about some/all of these things:

  • Function over form, it's got to first work right, then look clean and awesome
  • Web standards and accessibility
  • Product stuff - UX, design, marketing and analytics
  • Genuinely enjoying team collaboration, getting input and debating ideas
  • Working closely with clients, caring enough to challenge them and push back at times
  • Working with a truly self-organising team that is transparent and not afraid to push back
  • Being involved in user research, front-end dev or product management. Many of the team have broad expertise.

What's the package?

  • £35,000-£40,000
  • Work wherever you want (home, office, coffee shop, beach etc)
  • 99% remote, you only need to come to the Leeds for important client meetings, onboarding or company events
  • If you want, work from our open and bright office in the centre of Leeds near restaurants and bars.
  • 23 - 28 days holiday
    • 22 days holiday + 1 day per year at Pocketworks
    • Never work on your birthday
    • No working over Christmas (2-5 days additional gifted holidays)
  • It's hard to socialise right now, but we used to do a lot of lunches & beers
  • £1,000 annual training and learning budget
  • You’ll receive a modern MacBook and any accessories you need
  • You own your company laptop after 3 years.
  • Discretional bonuses given

What is the process?

This process should take 5-10 days.

  • 20 minute non-technical Telephone interview
  • 1.5 hour interview over video covering questions around experience, tech and your view on things. You can ask questions too.
  • If we both feel it's a good fit, we'll make you an offer
  • Start immediately, or as soon as you're ready

Note: If we missed anything, we may request a second interview

What does Pocketworks do?

In a nutshell, we help companies launch apps and digital platforms that give customers and employees a better experience. We usually have 4-7 app products that we're working on at any time. Some last 3-6 months, others are under continuous development.

When doing software development, we aim to create robust, clean code that can be maintained for years. It’s about finding that pragmatic balancing point between best practice and speed.

What is the culture like?

It’s positive, relaxed, with a focus on getting good work done. We’re a very sociable and close-knit team of 12 people. We like short meetings that focus on getting stuff done. There is barely any heirarchy here, the team are all very responsible and just crack on with stuff. We speak candidly to each other, not much bulls**t. We value honesty and transparency, very little information is hidden from anyone.
