Job Opportunity: UX Designer

Are you currently a junior looking for the next step in your career? Are you ready to play a more integral role on projects? And do you have a burning desire to produce work that has the power to inspire change in our society? 
If the answer is yes, this may just be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for…

Wolf&Player are seeking an up-and-coming User Experience Designer to join our small but highly talented creative team in London.

We grow our clients’ influence by designing strategic communications that inspire action. You will play a central role in this, designing engaging digital products which spark change — from shifting attitudes and behaviours to starting new movements.

You should be an analytical and creative designer who is confident taking ideas through a lean, user-centred design process. You’ll be disturbingly creative, have a razor sharp eye for identifying what is important and get satisfaction from delivering products that don’t just work, but give pleasure in doing so. You will also be able to communicate crystal clearly, have a positive attitude and vitally a good sense of humour.

In return you will have the opportunity to carve out a central role for yourself in a highly ambitious, passionate and growing ethical design studio. You’ll work on a wide variety of interesting projects for our partners who are all working to inspire change and make a difference in the world. And we’ll make sure you enjoy the journey as much as we do, because for us work-life balance and wellness and wellbeing are just as important as the production of great work.
