We're Hiring

Want to be part of a passionate product design team, based in London?

YUZA is looking for an excellent mobile-app designer with graphical design prowess, UX talent and a strategic approach to designing for end-users.

We’ve created a brand new ‘Product’ department. It will become a design hub for all YUZA ventures and will be made of great thinkers; visionaries who can conceptualise, design, and then put into practice the next-generation of mobile apps; products that millions of people will interact with.

We’ve established the commercial and engineering teams required to incubate and accelerate brilliant app-based businesses. Now we intend to build on this by putting together a much bigger team of innovative product designers who simply “get it”.

If you want to be founding member of an expanding team of passionate UI, UX, conceptual and brand designers then get in touch.

Product Director, YUZA

About YUZA

We Create Innovative Platform Products

YUZA is one of Europe's leading app experience companies and was born at the start at the app boom. It now has tens of millions of downloads to its name.

As well as partnering with some of the world's leading brands to create award-winning apps, we also create disruptive, platform-based mobile app ventures with which we aim to become global category leaders.

YUZA is one of the most consistently inventive of app developers, anywhere in the world... and has gone on to create some of the most ingenious products the market has seen.

Mobile Entertainment

YUZA now operates a business model in which we use our years of experience in product creation to disrupt new sectors in partnership with entrepreneurs. If successful, you will eventually have the opportunity to specialise with one of YUZA’s disruptive businesses, or you could opt to stay within the YUZA core and work on laying the foundations of new projects as they spawn.

We believe in a flexible approach that works for everyone, with the central goal of creating the best product possible.

Design Roles

General Description

YUZA is looking to expand its Product team fivefold, with a range of new positions being created. These are important and senior positions that sit just below that of the Product Director. If successful, you will be expected to work closely with the PD to realise new products through the design phases; from conception through research, UX and visual design towards working with engineers to bring the design to life.

You will be expected to be able to think strategically when designing. In terms of managing time and considering end-user demographics, platform conventions, and wider business strategy.

The roles are flexible in that if it appears that you specialise more in another area of product design (e.g. UX, research, content creation etc.) then it will be encouraged and you can act as a torchbearer for that issue using your expertise across the entire group of companies.

The roles are all very hands-on, however, in that you will likely perform all various design roles to some degree as projects require them.

Vacant Positions

  • Lead Product Designer
  • Senior UI Designer
  • Brand/Visual Designer
  • Front-end Web Developer
  • Researcher/Spec. Writer

About You

We’re looking for individuals who understand and share the company’s philosophy and work ethic. We’d like you to become part of our core team; be a team player, and also be someone who can be relied on when under pressure.

In return, we expect this to be a very rewarding role - seeing products you’ve lead and designed being downloaded by millions and making news all over the world - as well as great opportunities for career growth and personal development in the future.

Requirements

  • Past experience working on mobile applications.
  • Passion for the kind of products YUZA creates.
  • Excellent graphic design skills.
  • Strong organisation and time management skills.
  • Experience in conceptualising individual features and bringing them from idea to completion.
  • Familiarity with the differences between platforms such as iOS, Android, and WP.
  • Proficient use of Adobe Creative Cloud products such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Fireworks etc.


Desireables

  • Experience in web design.
  • Experience of working with software engineers.
  • Experience in basic web coding; e.g. html, css.
  • Experience using Macs and their programmes.
  • Experience using Google Docs.
  • Good skills in copywriting.
  • Enjoyment from sketching.
  • Experience in testing products, or the QA process.
× NOTE: These roles are based in central London, UK. If successful, you will be based in the Carnaby Street office with the rest of the design team.
