Job Description:

Head of UX Design
Cape Town CBD


We’re looking for a Head of UX Design who provides strong leadership skills to successfully lead a team of UX Designers and has a passion for crafting intuitive, consistent, and delightful user experiences for brand.
You should be an excellent communicator, self-starter, and collaborative enthusiast. You should also have a knack for visual details as much as holistic systems thinking.

Minimum Requirements 
  • A Bachelor's degree with a focus on design would be highly desirable, however, we believe equivalent industry experience and a can-do attitude goes a long way. 
  • 3+ years as a UX Design leader & manager. 
  • 5+ years UX design experience with apps and web.
  • Experience in application user interface design and interactive application design. 
  • Experience designing wireframes and creating interactive prototypes with InVision app, Flinto or Principle. 

Duties & Responsibilities 
  • Direct, manage, motivate and mentor a team of UX designers.
  • Advise on best practices to design delightful user experiences.
  • Put in place right-sized processes and standards to scale team capabilities and productivity.
  • Take ownership of designing and developing UX designs across the company’s app & web portfolio. 
  • Responsible for wireframing, designing and producing UX/UI designs. 
  • Rapidly produce multiple concepts and prototypes; knowing when to apply pixel-perfect attention to detail, and when to make low-fi sketches and prototypes. 
  • Produce interactive prototypes using InVision app, Flinto or Principle. 
  • Refine and iterate designs based on outcomes of user testing to create the delightful user experiences. 
  • Work with small multi-disciplinary teams. You’ll partner closely with engineering, product, and business folks to find elegant but practical solutions to design challenges. 
  • Ensure products have a consistent look and feel across platforms with platform specific enhancements, ensuring platform specific best practices are adhered to. 
  • Create and maintain design systems, guidelines for visual assets and style guides. 
  • Ensure smooth handover to engineering using Zeplin or Sympli.
