Full-time UX Designer

at Geckoboard in London

Welcome to Geckoboard! As our first UX Designer you’ll play a pivotal role shaping our Geckoboard product. Combining your user-centered design and creative thinking, you will help our customers visualize and communicate their complex business data, making their data useful!

Right now you are probably working in a B2B or similar business product environment, leading the user experience aspect of technically complex products. Supporting one of our biggest projects to date, your experience, in collaboration with our product, engineering and design teams, will help us completely re-imagine how users get their data into their Geckoboard.

What we are looking for
As our UX Designer you will be someone who:

  • Can design elegant and intuitive solutions, that have measurable outcomes, to technically complex problems based on meeting customers, leading workshops, researching, exploring and defining problems etc…
  • Champions the user above all else.
  • Has experience working closely with developers in a lean / agile environment.
  • Can give (and receive!) constructive feedback.
  • Has an infectious enthusiasm for building products users love!

It’s not essential, but it would be great if you also had :

  • Some HTML, CSS and JS as we do some prototyping in code.

We believe excellent design and placing the user at the heart of everything we do is critical for our ongoing success. As our UX Designer you’ll have the chance to be hugely influential in shaping the future of Geckoboard. You’ll work closely with our Product Managers to identify opportunities to improve the product, and get hands on with the Development Team to implement and iterate your solutions.

As part of the screening process please include links or attachments to your portfolio. We are keen to see evidence that demonstrates your thought process and showcases your work, with information about the framework and methodologies you deploy.

Thousands of businesses use Geckoboard to build live TV Dashboards that focus teams on what matters. We take the complexity out of connecting data and make it simple for anyone to understand key metrics at a glance. Some of our customers include Marketo, G2Crowd, Slack, Skyscanner, Dashlane and Hootsuite.

The role is based in our London office.
