Full-Time London Salary: £35-50k + equity

Product Designer

Commonplace is a fast-growing Series A startup in the digital engagement space. Our award-winning SaaS platform provides a space where communities and organisations work together to create better places to live and work.

The role:

As the Product Designer in our scaling start-up you will be instrumental in our success, owning all aspects of the design and usability of our product in partnership with our Head of Product.  Since we are going through uncertain times you will be comfortable with a degree of ambiguity, able to adapt to changing priorities and pivot at short notice. You’ll have a lean start-up mentality and a bias towards data-driven decision-making, with a focus on producing MVP’s in support of business outcomes in a process-light environment.

Knowledge necessary:

Adobe suite, Invision and Sketch or Figma
Agile working practices including Scrum and an MVP / Lean approach
HTML and CSS designing digital services
It’s also advantageous (but by no means necessary) to have Javascript and React

Skills and experience needed:

Getting involved at every stage of the design and production life cycle
Conducting brainstorm and design studio sessions with internal and external stakeholders including scoping and shaping sessions with developers
User research – quant and qual
Wireframing and prototyping
Visual skills to help shape what the app looks like, implementing our new look and feel that is currently getting worked on
Defining and preparing tickets for developers
Conducting QA for new features


You’ll be a natural communicator with collaboration at the heart of how you work, which means informing and making decisions as well as taking guidance from others.
You’ll be a problem-solver, thinking iteratively and solving big challenges in small chunks.  You’ll have ideas and use your initiative to shape the Commonplace platform and processes.
Eye for detail and not shying away from getting stuck in production code to refine something or to work closely with developers on a new feature within the same sprint.
Time management – when to say yes and when to no; prioritisation within sprint

Compensation and benefits:

We offer:

A competitive salary, with a company bonus and commission structure, and an equity component once you’ve settled in.
Flexible holiday arrangements – we don’t limit how much you take – and 20 days fully paid sick leave.
A Macbook Pro to work on, a tailored learning and development plan, and support for professional training; £750 per year training budget.
Flexible working hours – you are free to work the hours that suit your lifestyle, including working remotely and working-from-home.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.


If you have some examples of previous work, we would be interested in seeing those too.
