User Experience (UX) Design Consultant

A major international sports broadcast organisation based in Europe is looking for a highly creative User Experience Design Consultant to join their product management division on a fixed-term contract basis until December 2019.

There is a possibility for this contract to be extended for a further duration or even become permanent, however this is not guaranteed at this stage.

As an experienced and analytical UX Consultant, you will solve complex business and functional design problems across the company's digital and OTT video products, covering websites, apps and TV platforms.

You will focus on the overall look, feel and functionality of each product from a user experience perspective, achieve synergy across all product offerings and ultimately make it easier for sports fans worldwide to find, engage and interact with unique content 365 days a year.

Applying a fan-centric design approach, you will create user journeys, interfaces, process flows, storyboards, wireframes, low and high fidelity designs and prototypes, all based on user research, interviews, usability testing, competitive analysis and wider market research.

You will drive the design process to ensure the best fan experiences are achieved, inform the team of best-practice digital UI patterns and trends, communicate design rationale throughout the project lifecycle and ensure all projects keep moving efficiently to successful launch.

Candidates will have a proven background as a User Experience Designer, ideally having worked on digital projects such as websites, apps or OTT video players, with a strong portfolio which demonstrates informed UX design decision processes, end user journeys, sketches and wireframes.

Experience of working with design software (Axure, OmniGraffle), digital technologies such as HTML, JavaScript, CSS and native mobile software and the ability to create intuitive wireframes and multi-platform interfaces are essential. Any additional knowledge of Google Design Sprint would be advantageous.

This position requires an adept listener, a fast learner, an adaptable approach, a creative thinker, a strong interactive and visual designer and a strong multi-tasker to deliver multiple projects simultaneously.

International travel may be required as part of this role (less than 40%), therefore applicants must be willing and flexible to travel at short notice.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work for a world-renowned sports brand and design cutting-edge digital video products at the forefront of technology.

If you feel you have the right skills and experience to be successful in this role, please apply now with a copy of your CV and latest portfolio.
