Job Type: Full Time, Permanent

The Company provides systems to schools, colleges and multi-academy trusts to help keep children safe - the work they do really makes a difference. They are a remote UK-based team and are looking for multiple Ruby on Rails Engineers to join them.

They’re looking for a product designer to help them grow the team: you’ll have some ability in front-end development, with a keen eye for UI and UX design. You’ll be given ownership of their product’s design, ensuring that their functionality remains easy-to-use for customers as they continue to develop. You’ll be reporting to the Managing Director, their product owner, and working closely with the Engineering team as they bring your designs to life.

You’ll need to be comfortable translating wireframes into an intuitive interface, whilst being able to suggest and implement UX improvements. You might spend one day talking to the customers about how they use a particular feature, the next researching new controls for a particular screen, and then a few days working on some new product ideas.

The Company do the majority of the work and daily communication through Slack, with regular conference calls, screen shares, and opportunities for pairing. They run two-weekly sprints in a kanban fashion, but don’t get bogged down in the process. Their roadmap and in-flight boards are managed with Trello.

They believe in creating careers, not jobs. During your time with them you’ll receive regular, honest, helpful feedback. They’ll be looking for ways to grow your expertise, and they will provide opportunities for your professional development. Although they’re a remote team, they speak every day, and arrange regular meetings both by department and as a company.

Required Skills:

* A flair for user experience and user interface design
* Experience with HTML, CSS, and jQuery
* The ability to translate wireframes into designs
* Comfortable talking to customers through email, phone, and in-person
* Comfortable using macOS as your day-to-day operating system, or happy to learn
* A strong standard of spoken and written English
* An interest in education, safeguarding and improving children’s lives

Other things that might be useful:

* Exposure to development using Ruby on Rails

The highlights:

* Work remotely, with travel covered for training days and team building
* Essential hardware provided, including a laptop and VOIP phone
* Full training, including safeguarding, health and safety and information security
* Staff Employee Assistance Program
* 28 days’ holiday pro-rata, including bank holidays
* Regular wage and benefits reviews
* (Negotiable) reduced hours outside term time
