At SQUAD SOCIAL (www.squad.social) we're changing the way LGBTQ+ people interact online. We want to end isolation of LGBTQ+ people by giving them alternatives to dating and hook-up apps to find each other and interact.

We're looking for a kick-ass UX designer who can get to understand our target audience, figure out what makes them tick and to help shape our social networking platform. We're a start-up raising seed capital now and things have started moving fast so we need someone to take over leading the product for the founder who's off raising funds (which is going super well!).

We've already started with some personas and top-level user experience research and you'd be supported by our Product Advisor who ran this work. Day to day you'd be conducting user testing, helping assess the success of wireframes put together by our offshore development team and working with our in-house creative and brand owner to make sure we're designing for maximum interaction and engagement.

This role is free-lance on variable days per week depending on business need but we're in the middle of wireframing our product and have a roadmap stretching for months so if you're awesome we'd love to have you on the team.

We're a small team, based in Shoreditch, things move fast.

What it takes to succeed:

You're super detail oriented
You've worked with remote/offshore teams as an intelligent client
You've got experience putting together a product roadmap
You have experience applying UX design excellence to social networking products


Stuff that puts you at the front of the queue:

You already understand LGBTQ+ market
You understand how to build products targeted at 16-24 / Gen Z audiences
You're fun

You're a digital native (or design like one!).

To apply please send a CV and portfolio of your work, highlighting your experiences of the points above. Also tell us why you love our company so we get why you're passionate.
