At Perlego, we’re working hard to make education accessible to all. In this digital age, we believe that anyone should be able to learn anything at any time. Knowledge should be more accessible, not locked behind sky-high price tags.
Over the past 4 years our goal has been to support students across the UK & Europe to access quality books. The next stage of Perlego is two fold: 1) expand our support to students globally, and 2) build a product that goes beyond the book, a platform that helps students study smarter and more effectively.
What we’re looking for
A mid-weight Product Designer with experience designing world-class app experiences and beautifully crafted interfaces. You’d be joining our design team, working on every stage of the design process, from research to delivery.
How we work together
We organise ourselves into cross-functional squads, with each squad working together on a common goal. This role will be part of our mobile squad which consists of 6 team members – a Technical Lead, 3 Engineers, a QA Engineer and you.
It’s the perfect role for you if you have:
An insatiable passion for digital design and the latest trends.
Strong visual skills, creative thinking and design background. Detail-oriented, always striving for quality and consistency.
Strong portfolio (with app design experience)
3+ years of work experience designing digital products for web and mobile platforms.
You’re proficient with UI design tools, such as Sketch, Figma, Framer X or XD.
You’re proficient with prototyping tools, such as InVision or Marvel.
You can own a design process from start to finish from workshops, user testing and UX research to creating first class final designs and dev handover.
You’re passionate about analysing data to make informed design decisions and to test your theories.
You create close relationships with stakeholders and customers.
You can communicate your hypotheses and findings back to the business with actionable takeaways.
You have energy, passion and a sleeves-rolled-up mentality: think quick, act fast and measure later. We don’t overplan or get lost in “strategising” – you’re a self-starter.
It’s a plus if you have:
→ Advanced experience with user research and testing
→ Experience with Agile and/or Scrum
→ Experience in working closely with developers to design, develop and deliver a product
→ Experience in a startup environment and/or MA (or equivalent) in Business / Entrepreneurship
→ Have a general interest in books, reading and always learning new things!
What you’ll do
Take on responsibility for the design process, from research to prototyping and preparing requirements to create delightfully simple experiences for our users.
Develop a deep understanding of our users’ goals, workflows and pain points, through conducting user research and running workshops.
Work collaboratively with our engineering team to deliver your solutions
Work alongside a marketing designer to ensure your features are communicated to the right people at the right time.
