Bristol Usability Group

A Group. About Usability. In Bristol.

Bath-based startup software company is hiring for a Lead UX & UI Designer to help advance a web application that helps teams find the right files quickly and easily, using organisational tools and machine learning.

We’re an innovative software business with ambition, applying novel AI and machine learning techniques to proactively collate large document stores in readily usable ways.

You will define and lead the UX function, working as a voice for the customer to help us shape products that are beautiful and a joy to use.

Sadly, we were asked to remove the employer's name from this public posting. Too many lazy recruiters cold-calling the employer. Please give us a shout and we'll gladly let you know who this is with. Apologies meanwhile. Andrew
