We’re just getting going here in London, but we have big plans, and this is the chance to be part of a company that’s growing rapidly in size and reputation.
About the role
We’re looking for a Lead Product Designer with 7+ years experience, who is ready to step into a Head of Product Design role with our growing team. You’ll be integral to the day-to-day operation of the business, building the Product Design team, and shaping/optimising the process.
