About the role

We’re looking for a Senior UI designer with 3+ years of commercial experience to join the Tangent design team. We don’t mind if you’ve worked in-house or at an agency. What’s most important to us is that you’ve launched digital products at scale, leading the process of applying UI.

Tangent has a global client base across sectors, meaning you will get the opportunity to work on cutting edge design problems. That can be everything from websites, portals, apps to internal tools that drive our client’s businesses.

Our core design team is based in the UK but working remote. This has given us the opportunity to recruit further afield in other countries. Our initial target areas are the UK, Spain and South Africa. But we are open to speaking with Lead product designers based in time zones within 2 hours of the UK.

You are welcome to work 100% remote or hybrid from our London Kings Cross or Valencia offices. For applicants from overseas, we will fly you over at least once a year to attend our London social events and help build in-person relationships with the team. We’re happy for you to work in a way that suits you best.
