The Role: You will support the product design team and also collaborate with numerous teams across both titles - editorial, engineers, product management, product, commercial, marketing - as well as helping to form relationships with other design teams across the wider business. You will join a team that defines the digital product experiences for mobile apps, newsletters, subscriber journeys and editorial publishing tools.

You will be brimming with creative ideas and have a demonstrable interest in current affairs and culture.

The Team: The product design team aims to deliver clean, engaging ways of attracting customers and telling stories. Our overarching aim is to deliver a beautiful product that serves our journalism in the best way possible, with new and innovative ways of reaching existing subscribers and attracting potential new readers.

Skills and Experience

  • Product design capabilities

    Experience and knowledge of product design software, such as Figma, Sketch and Adobe Creative Cloud, as well as prototyping tools, and research tools such as Userzoom etc.

  • Strong communication skills

    The ability to collaborate with other disciplines, and the ability to sell your ideas confidently, always knowing when to push and when to pull.

  • UX/UI standards

    Understanding of human-centred design principles. Confident UI designer, especially keen on creating pixel-perfect icons and maintaining the design library.

  • Think creatively

    The skill to think outside the box and solve problems, not just be an artworker. Be enthusiastic about an idea and bring people along with you.

  • Attention to detail

    An awareness of product design trends and the desire to deliver beautiful, user-centred solutions. Be keen to self-evaluate your work, but always be open to feedback from peers.

  • Industry experience

    Ideally editorial/publishing or subscriber-based product experience, but not essential.

  • Collaboration

    Collaboration is key. A lot of stakeholders means a lot of discussions - it's good to talk, but you should know when you need to crack on to hit that deadline.

What we are looking for from you:

  • You love product design and you're interested in news and current affairs.

  • You have a clear portfolio displaying the formulation of your ideas, solving problems, and re-evaluating your approaches.

  • If you want the opposite of a small design agency experience.
