The BBC’s award-winning UX&D team strives to define modern British design on digital platforms.
Joining us means you will be part of an innovative and supportive community of user experience designers, working with technical and editorial teams to make products that touch the lives of everyone in the UK and the rest of the world.
We make sure we know who we’re designing for with regular user research, and combine this with our own instincts to make creative leaps into delightful products.
You have an outstanding portfolio you can share with us. Ideally it shows work on mobile, connected TV, tablets, games consoles and web.
You want to get your teeth into fascinating design challenges, and you meet them with excellent design communication.
Your specialism might be wireframes, user flows and personas, or layout, colour and typography. And maybe there’s something special that you could offer us: we’d love you to be an amazing prototype builder, illustrator or motion graphic designer.
You care passionately about representing the users you design for, and you have an almost indecent curiosity about them. You want to design not just the best thing but the right thing for the whole audience.
Of course you know how to use Adobe Creative Suite products, but more importantly, you’re happy to pick up whatever new package best suits the task at hand. The same goes for the new devices that your designs might appear on.
You can pitch your work, and sell it to all sorts of people. You’ll have an instinct for balancing the BBC’s needs with our users’ needs, and you’ll be able to work with a diverse group of disciplines and perspectives.
You’ve got a great degree in design – or you have the equivalent on-the-job experience.
We like people who are
- enthusiastic about what they do, and a delight to work with
- motivated and full of ideas
- geeky about design
- geeky about technology
