Description

Are you an experienced mid-weight Product Designer who enjoys the autonomy of leading UX/UI projects from start to finish? If you're a self-motivated and curious person with an eye for visual interaction and a strong understanding of user-centred design principles, we'd love to hear from you.

We're looking for someone who can seamlessly blend user experience and interface design, an autonomous thinker who's not afraid to bring fresh and best-practice ideas to the table and lead the design of our digital products and platforms. With 4-5 years of in-house experience under your belt, you're ready to take on more responsibility and showcase your end-to-end project prowess. You'll collaborate with a diverse and multidisciplinary team to create visually stunning, intuitive, and user-friendly designs.

About us

We are Canvas8, a strategic insights practice operating out of London, NY, LA, & Singapore. We help our clients understand people so they can make better business decisions.

Our work is about investigating the hidden insights in everyday life – from the psychology of boredom to teenage make-up rituals to why Barbiecore is a Gen Y thing – and making them meaningful for brands. Our team is a blend of different disciplines and skills – from psychology to journalism, and anthropology to behavioural economics. What unites them is a desire to understand people and a passion for delivering outstanding work.
