UX/UI Designer


Full Timeui/uxLondonUKPosted 1 years ago
Lifebit is building the world’s first intelligent genomics platform that understands DNA data and generates meaningful insights.

We just closed an over $3M funding round from two major London funds after graduating from Techstars London 2017's cohort.

We are building a cloud-based cognitive system that can reason about DNA data like humans do. This offers researchers/R&D professionals, and their corresponding organisations (ie. pharmas), a highly scalable, modular and reproducible system that automates the analysis processes, learns from the data and provides actionable insights.

We believe that a great user experience is at the heart of any successful product. We are looking for a Designer, with UX and web application design experience as well as an affinity to visualisations to join us.

As the Lead Designer you will work closely with the Product and Engineering teams on shaping our platform. Initially, you will be driving thoughtful and independent design, focused on UX for the platform we are building. As products grow and evolve, you will be expected to build, train and lead a team of talented designers.

Our target audience consists broadly of bioinformaticians so we also appreciate technical backgrounds, geekiness or interest in biotech.

Your day-to-day will include:

• Translating concepts into user flows, wireframes, mockups and prototypes that lead to intuitive user experiences.
• Researching, conceiving, sketching, prototyping and user-testing experiences.
• Designing and delivering wireframes, user stories, user journeys, and mockups.
• Rapidly testing and iterating your designs.


• 3+ years of UX design experience working with data analysis platforms, or similar.
• Experience with Sketch, InVision and such is a must.
• Basic HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript skills.
• Strategically create new features and functionality based on user stories and behaviour.
• UX design best practices.
• Solid grasp of user-centered design (UCD), planning and conducting user research, user testing, A/B testing, rapid prototyping, heuristic analysis, usability and accessibility concerns.
• Ability to iterate designs and solutions efficiently and intelligently.
• Familiarity with work management tools: JIRA and Git.

Job Location:
• London, we don’t allow fully remote but are open to some flexibility. If you’re based in Cambridge, for example, we’d cover your commute to London and after the initial on-boarding period, we’d be happy to explore being at the office for just 3 days/week.
