About us

Planes is a young digital product studio, started by two friends who liked making great products together. Taking our various experiences building and growing startups we have built a studio that is helping all sorts of people, from international fin-tech providers launch new apps to companies building their MVPs. A nimble team, we work collaboratively to produce work that we are proud of and our clients love.

Alongside our commercial work, we also work with entrepreneurs with an idea. Our internal goal is to build one new product a month with others, giving them the launchpad to start their own businesses while ensuring we are constantly evolving and creating.

The role

We are looking for someone to join us on a full-time basis initially to help run the design element of our projects. You will work with us throughout the product lifecycle from initial sketches and design workshops through to prototyping and delivery. Working closely with both clients and developers you will help turn ideas into beautiful products. Largely responsible for the UI, you will develop concepts, research trends and design interfaces that users will love. You will also be heavily involved in the UX, user feedback and iteration of products as they go to market.

The position would suit someone who has experience designing mobile and web apps, be that in an agency, on a product team or just in your spare time.

We promote flexible working whether from home or late starts we want work to compliment your life not to define it. We know that the people we hire are here to help us grow something awesome and to do a great job. We have learnt that treating people with respect gets the best out of them, and is far more enjoyable for us too which is why we also offer unlimited holiday. We do however want to build a team that learns, fails and succeeds together so while we don’t mind if you want to go and work from Porto for a week we are after people who are London based.

Who we are looking for

We are looking for someone who has a strong passion for design and making beautiful things. We need you to be responsible for digesting our clients vision and producing delightful products that deliver user experiences that work. You will have experience designing and iterating on mobile and web apps using a mixture of user feedback, data and intuition. You will be proud of the work you produce, but not too proud to let it get in the way and you relish working in a close-knit team. Working with entrepreneurs all day we need someone who can spot an opportunity and run with it, with no hand-holding.

Some skills we need:
- 2-3 years of mobile/web design experience
- Sketch/Invision/Adobe Suite
- Wireframing
- Information Architecture
- Interaction design
- Design thinking/approach to problems
- Exposure to client-facing work
