At Blip, UI design is more than just snazzy concepts. It tells a story through the eyes of our customers and plays a vital role in making our products simple and usable.
As a UI Designer, you’ll be equally comfortable doing small design tweaks one day to changing gears and brainstorming ideas that solve customer problems and make us industry leaders. We love our customers, so expect to get involved in some research to ensure your designs are as intuitive as they can be.
We have a strong culture of being collaborative and slightly mischievous, so if you like to (over) share and don’t take yourself too seriously, then you’re someone we’d love to meet.
The UI team is looking for an enthusiastic, pro-active UI Designer – someone who loves doing what they do and executing innovative, practical and relevant design solutions for our customers.
In your role, you will be challenged to define and prototype new concepts for the site; to help the team understand the pro’s and cons of new approaches; and use this work to sell concepts to the business by getting feedback from users.
