We are a diverse group of designers, strategists, engineers and wordsmiths who make things that people love to use.

Role Overview

Beyond is looking for an experienced UXer with a focus in design and research to help us create exceptional digital products for some of the world’s most exciting brands (Google, The BBC, Diageo, Snapchat, Paramount, and Novartis, to name a few). As part of a hyper-collaborative multidisciplinary product team, you’ll help set the vision for end-to-end user experiences, and work hands-on to turn that vision into reality.

As a Senior Designer, you’ll work independently on projects with minimal oversight, shaping their approach and strategic direction. You are passionate about developing beautiful, meaningful, human-centred products that meet both user needs and business goals. You’ll use that passion to exceed client expectations, inspire your coworkers, and help us build our capabilities across the team and wider organisation.

The role reports into an Associate Director or Director of UX, who will help guide your career and match you with opportunities to help you grow.

As a Senior UX Designer at Beyond you’ll:

  • Work with other senior team members to pitch, win, plan and execute excellent product design/strategy work with clients.
  • Design best-in-class user experiences and clear, systematic information architecture.
  • Plan and execute user research, including usability testing, surveys, focus groups, ethnography, and guerrilla-style testing.
  • Support service design efforts with our Product Strategy team, including research, service blueprints, etc.

  • Craft clean, cogent, on-brand presentations for internal work (e.g. pitches) and client workshops/meetings.
  • Travel to clients’ offices when needed to better understand their environment and build empathy for their challenges.
  • Document your work when necessary in the form of presentations, sketches, wireframes, prototypes, etc.
  • Plan, participate in (and often lead) workshops with colleagues and/or clients, in-person, hybrid or virtual (e.g. using Miro).
  • Approach every problem with a lean UX mindset, supporting product quality, innovation, and rapid time to market.
  • Create happy, thriving partnerships within nimble, collaborative, multidisciplinary teams and with clients.

Things that will make you stand out:

  • Your focus is UX, but you have a calling and affinity for other areas of the product development process and a strong appreciation of UI, research, product thinking and/or service design.
  • You have an online portfolio that demonstrates your process and thinking, from sketches to iteration to launch and beyond.
  • You have 5+ years of experience designing for consumer-focused tech and/or agencies.
  • You have experience designing for all devices, and interest in new and emerging technologies.
  • You have an interest in and experience working with digital strategies or collaborating with digital strategists.
  • You are comfortable working toward pixel-perfection or with low-fi sketches, depending on need.
  • You can bring your designs to life with a number of UX, design and prototyping tools including Figma.
  • You are familiar with working in an agile environment.
  • You have a people-centered design approach, and are constantly looking to improve your decisions through user feedback.
  • You are driven by user needs as defined by data, analytics and metrics.
  • You want to learn and grow in your discipline, and regularly seek feedback from coworkers to help you do so.
  • You have the ability and empathy to inspire others to deliver great work.
