The role 

We’re looking for a Senior Product Designer to help us change the way the world deals with death. It’s a big opportunity – the chance to change the lives of millions of people and their families every year. 

You'd be integral to determining the direction we take with our products and services. And you’ll help define the relationship we have with the people who need us. 

We have 2 product teams and you’ll be designing across both. This is a role for a clear communicator, and confident collaborator. 

You should be as comfortable rolling up your sleeves to draw on the whiteboard as you are using digital design tools. And as happy to set up your own way of working as you are adopting the best bits of the way we work today. 

Day to day, you will:

  • Lead the design of simple, inclusive, empathetic products and services our customers can trust
  • Contribute to product decisions, balancing the business requirements with the needs of our customers
  • Champion our users and make evidence-based decisions, from insight and strategy through to creation and delivery
  • Continue to develop Farewill's approach to product design, from the big picture down to the smallest UI details
  • Help us build excellent customer facing products and the brilliant internal tools that make sure we deliver them
  • Report to our Creative Director, and work closely with our Lead Brand Designer, Product Managers and Engineers

In the interview, we’ll be looking for evidence of:

  • Design leadership, resulting in simple and effective products across multiple platforms and devices
  • Attention to detail and care for the craft of design
  • An analytical approach with human, user-focussed outcomes
  • Collaborative ways of working with content, research, product and engineering
  • Strong communication, documentation and facilitation skills
  • Assessing and establishing design patterns

What we offer:

  • £75-90k salary plus generous stock options
  • The option to work a 4 day week (off on Fridays), though please note this would be at a prorated salary
  • 28 days annual leave plus the usual public holidays
  • Personal development budget of 3 days and £1000 per year
  • Hybrid working; our team works a minimum of 2 days/week in our lovely East London (Haggerston) office
  • Regular team socials & company-wide events
  • A chance to make a meaningful contribution to people's lives and deaths
