What we’re looking for
To support our product team, LaterPay is looking for a talented full time or part time UX/UI Designer with a passion for ‘wowing!’ users to help us create amazing user experiences. The ideal candidate will have an eye for clean, simple and meaningful design, possess superior UX/UI design skills and be able to translate user needs and concepts into beautiful, intuitive, and functional user interfaces and flows. As you would be the first UX/UI Designer to work at LaterPay, the role will be both a challenge and a great opportunity for ownership over the development of these processes and disciplines within the company as well as for growth as we grow. We are looking for someone to be a UX pioneer for LaterPay, someone who has suggestions for how we can cultivate a culture of UX in our agile company placing an emphasis on iteration, collaboration and feedback. We want a UX designer who will bring with them ideas and experience for establishing new UX processes that will eventually change the way we approach our work.
What we do
At LaterPay, we empower the business of paid content and services across the Internet. In our process, when a visitor reaches paid content, instead of having to complete a form and hand over a credit card, the user simply agrees to pay later and gets instant access to content, resulting in increased sales conversions and a better user experience.
We believe that consuming paid content should be as easy and convenient as going out to dinner: you are served first and you pay later.
As part of our product management team, you will:
- Collaborate with engineering teams to optimise and improve current user flows and design
- Work on multiple parts of the product as well as the different parallel projects we have running
- Execute all visual design stages from concept to continuous alignment with all involved parties
- Work with the business team to conceptualise thoughtful, original ideas that bring simplicity and user friendliness to the product and any new or existing projects
- Create wireframes, storyboards, user personas and flows, process flows and sitemaps to effectively communicate interaction and design ideas
- Identify both existing and potential design problems and provide elegant solutions
- Conduct user research and assist in A/B testing with a view to translating user feedback into thoughtful, user-driven design
- Establish, own and promote design guidelines, best practices, a component library and UX standards within our company wiki with a view to educating teams about the principles of UX and why they are important for our product.
- Proven UX/UI experience across mobile and web
- Experience working in an agile, iterative development environment
- Strong UX/UI design skills with a great portfolio
- Experience in creating wireframes, storyboards, personas, user journeys and process flows
- Proficiency in tools such as Photoshop, Sketch, Illustrator (or other visual design and wire-framing tools)
- Great attention to detail
- Ability to multitask across multiple projects in a sometimes chaotic (but always fun) environment
- Patience and determination. Rome wasn't built in a day and it may take time before you see the full effects of your UXpertise
- As well as designing interfaces and flows from the ground up, be able to improve existing ones through iteration
- Deliver consistent, engaging experiences across all user journeys
- Ability to solve problems creatively and effectively
- Up-to-date with the latest UX/UI trends, techniques, and technologies
- Fluency in English
How we work
As a distributed team, we’re not too bothered by when and where you work. That said, most of us work Monday to Friday from 9 UTC to 6 UTC, and we're looking for someone who'd overlap at least 4 hours within that timeframe.
We try to be as asynchronous as possible, but feel that we need some “synchronicity” to work well.
- Based in UTC+4 and want to work “normal hours”? Sure.
- Based in UTC-8 and want to time-shift your days to overlap with “Team UTC”? If that works for you, sure.
- Hobbies, family, pets etc. that require you to take time out of your day? Assuming you can maintain a reasonable amount of overlap with the rest of the team, sure.
We care more about what you do and how you work with the rest of the team, than we do about your ability to be at a chair, at a desk at 9am every day.
If this sounds interesting, but you're not sure you're quite the right fit, apply and let us know what you bring to the table.
Because of the very enthusiastic response and high number of applications to this job ad, we've decided to move up the closing date and will take applications until December 21, 2017. We will get back to you and start arranging screens and interviews starting January 2018.
