User Experience Designer

Would you get a kick out of working for a company that sees UX as its main competitive advantage, and where the guiding principle is "ingeniously simple"? At Red Gate everyone understands the importance of creating a great UX. We're looking for a User Experience Designer to ensure that our designs and products truly enhance our end users' experience. Visit our UX blog to get a taste of being part of the team.

Working across product development at Red Gate, you'll define and communicate the user experience vision for new and existing products. You'll collaborate with product management, visual designers, and engineers, advocating the best design for our users. Collaboration is key at Red Gate. (Teamwork is just one of the reasons Red Gate has been awarded the Best Use of Agile in the UK Agile Awards.)

You'll drive research activities to identify key user needs and requirements and interpret users' needs into effective and thoughtful design solutions. You'll be responsible for early prototyping and testing of new functionality to learn from users and you'll iterate and lead product designs based on results from research and usability tests to create a great end user experience.

It's an exciting time to work in UX at Red Gate. We're moving away from desktop apps and winforms towards web and HTML5. This leaves us freer to create beautiful UIs and more streamlined workflows. Take a look at Source Control for Oracle to see what we mean. We're looking at ways to make our tools work together better and tell a more compelling story for the user. We're looking at better ways to help our users solve their problems. If you can help us help our users then we want to hear from you.

Red Gate is proud to be independently recognised as Cambridge's best workplace as well as an award winning software provider – we aspire to be the best place you've ever worked. Our users love us and UX is frequently singled out as why people have chosen a Red Gate tool. To apply, simply upload your CV and a portfolio of your work which includes the thought process behind your completed design or get in touch if you'd like to talk to us first.
