Job Type: UX Designer
Location: Remote, home working
Salary: Depending on experience
We’re Zebedee. We create websites, applications and apps that elevate brands and transform their performance. We are a small, friendly, hardworking, can-do and collaborative web agency team of problem solvers, strategists, creatives, UX designers and developers.
We foster an extended team ethos for our clients in order to build strong and transparent relationships. We’re agile and fast, enabling the delivery of our work quickly and to the best possible standard.
We are looking for a full-time, remote working exceptional UX Designer to become an integral part of this team. You will have significant agency experience, live and breathe UX and are super passionate about everything digital – you’re someone who can work collaboratively with senior designers, the dev team and management, as well as independently on a remote basis.
You’ll need to show us an exceptional portfolio of current work, provide strong references and will have excellent Sketch or XD skills and open to using new prototyping software. A good experience of HTML and CSS under your belt is highly desirable.
As the successful candidate, you must be prepared to roll up your sleeves and get fully involved in the workflow of the agency. A practical, no-nonsense approach to work, with a keen eye for detail and bags of motivation is what we’re after. You must enjoy a challenge and relish the idea of working collaboratively as part of a small team and contribute to other, non-design related agency tasks when required.
