Lead Product Designer

We’re looking for a user-focused Product Designer to help us tackle a profound human challenge – redefining the way the world deals with death.
In a stubbornly Victorian industry, our success to date has been down to our radically different approach to the problem and championing design’s role in the solution.
Working collaboratively in our cross-functional product team of 8, you’ll lead the vision and execution of how people experience our products.

Who We Are
We are a small, nimble team on a mission to change the way the world deals with death. Our Product team is currently 4 Developers, 1 Product Manager, 2 Customer Insights and 1 Lawyer and we’re looking for a Product Designer to complete the team. We’ve been featured on Product Hunt, we’ve been praised by GDS, we’ve had hundreds of stunning customer reviews and we’ve helped to raise more than £45 million for charities.

Who You Are
You’ll be a natural simplifier and communicator – someone who can distil complex legal requirements into simple, understandable designs.
You’ll be comfortable working at different levels of fidelity, from sketches, through to prototyping and final designs, and at different levels in the design process – from 10,000 feet views of our journey, to interaction design on the site.
Above all, you’ll want to play a major role in shaping the future of the death industry and building wonderful, best-in-class products that solve real problems for millions of people.

You’ll lead the design of our user experience across mobile and web
You’ll work collaboratively within the product team to research, define and solve challenges on our existing wills product
You’ll lead the design of our next product – our Professional Executor service
You’ll play a key role in hiring and leading our growing Product team
You’ll be up for getting involved outside of your role at times (e.g. Customer Service if we’re dealing with huge traffic, helping our growth and partnership teams design materials, organising team events if you fancy)
You’ll do this by being a phenomenal communicator, always putting our customers first, and loving to work collaboratively in a tight-knit team.

You Should Have:
2+ years experience in digital product design with a real strength in visual design
Experience with ‘end-to-end’ Product Design (from initial wireframes through to prototyping and visual design)
Experience in an iterative and collaborative software development environment
Great at communicating design decisions, as well as giving and taking feedback
Experience of user research

We Hope You’ll Have:
Experience working in a small startup
Experience hiring and leading other designers
Understanding of inclusive design and accessibility

If this sounds like what you’d love to be doing, we can’t wait to hear from you.

Hello, we’re Impero.

We’re an independent, award-winning, creative agency that’s sole purpose is to make tired brands famous again. We’re multi-disciplined but our hearts lie in digital. We work with high profile brands such as Beefeater Gin, Havana Club, Ugg, Lindt Chocolate, Kingston, 7Up and a bunch of others. Right now, there’s about 38 of us (plus 6 rotating office dogs) — but that number grows all the time because we’re still young, ambitious and pretty good at what we do. We’d love to meet people who want to be part of and help drive that growth.

The role:
Your primary goal is to ensure Impero’s design work continues to be the award-winning work we are infinitely proud of. This means bringing the highest level of technical skills and ownable styles to the table. This means trying new things, learning new skills and breaking norms and inspiring other team members to produce equally great work.

Senior Designers should have initiative. Whether it’s to pick up management responsibilities, suggest new ways to improve workflows or just ensure the team’s wellbeing. Seniors should have good relationships with the rest of their team members, and be able to assimilate jobs down to them. You must also be a team player — sometimes you will need to support the juniors in the day-to-day work… or simply help to get the mail.

You should also be able to comfortably work with other departments, supporting or leading where necessary. You must be a good communicator.

Senior Designers can not only handle client meetings but receive briefs (written and verbal) and understand how their design work fits into the broader picture of the client’s brand communications.

If you live and breath digital and design, we want to meet you. But above all, you must embody our core values and fit within our culture. We want to meet you if you…

• have 6 years minimum agency experience.
• have management experience in developing other team members — and are keen to continue doing so!
• have amazing digital design skills and a thousand unique styles and ideas tucked away.
• have a strong understanding of design trends and how to harness them.
• have good communication and presentation skills in selling your ideas, be it to your team or to clients.
• are able to problem solve and bring solutions to the table.
• are proactive and committed to developing your own knowledge and skills.
• are unafraid to roll up your sleeves and muck in.
• are organised and self-disciplined, with an ability to multi-task and consistently hit deadlines.
• are driven, motivated and have meticulous attention to detail.
• have a can-do attitude and a bit of the ol’ entrepreneurial spirit.
• are interested in being involved in the growth of the business as a whole.

The perks of working at The Mighty Impero include:

• To be part of something special — this is an exciting growing agency with no board of directors, or shareholders to report to.
• The ability to stamp your mark on an organisation – and not just be a cog in the machine.
• Free snacks, booze and coffee!
• Monthly breakfasts with the whole team.
• Seasonal company parties.
• Annual personal development plan and training budget for your own growth.
• Opportunity to pitch your own projects to our Impero Creative Council for dedicated time and resources to work on projects outside your immediate scope.
• The love of six rotating office dogs.
• A ‘yes work’s important, but let’s not get too serious’ vibe.
• A distinct lack of bureaucracy or politics.
• Ownership over your own projects whilst enjoying an inclusive environment.
• The future opportunity to possibly work in our other offices (Buenos Aires and very soon The World).
• Beer. Wine. Gin. Rum. Chocolate. (Working with our clients has added perks).
