Grimsby, Lincolnshire

Are you an experienced, creative, and analytical designer with a solid grasp on disciplines ranging from research, analysis, ideation, facilitation, pixel-perfect design, prototyping, and user testing?

Would you like to be part of both an ambitious but informal UX & Design team working strategically on the end2end user journey, and also be situated very closely to the development in a developer team, where you have the main responsibility for product design of some of our key digital offerings and will be part of digitally transforming our ferry & terminals business? ?If so – Great, we might have a match!

As this collaboration will be largely undertaken remotely this role will not suit everyone. However, if you are motivated for the challenge, we will assist by providing the opportunity to travel periodically to Copenhagen to build rapport and work with colleagues in the UX & Design Team.

  • Collaborate closely with the System/Business Analyst in your development team on what and how to test to inform needs for your F&T based product
  • Analyse data and synthesise relevant insights

  • Produce wireframes and pixel perfect designs in Figma using our design system Hydro to create strong deliveries for developers
  • Make sure user tests of new designs and features is carried out
  • Communicate insights to relevant people, both in the UX & Design Team and to other stakeholders in DFDS
