About the Opportunity
We’re looking for an experienced UX designer to redesign a core part of our product, used by thousands of customers every day. We expect this project to take around 1 month.
Although this is a standalone project, it is likely there will be other projects of a similar nature in future.
Please note that this is a UX project, focussed on re-designing the structures and user-flows of a core part of our product. The final deliverables (wireframes and user-flows) should be based on our customers’ experience, our customers’ needs and our needs as a business. This is not a UI project and we will not require Hi-Fi designs.
We are the industry leader in online booking and marketing software for barbers. Barbershops often don’t have the capacity to attract business online and organise their time – on top of providing their barbering service. We provide booking and marketing software to enable business owners to easily take bookings online, manage their time and market to their customers.
As a UX designer, you will work closely with our development team, operations team and directly with our customers to understand how a core part of our product should be re-designed and function. The project is focussed on the ‘Timetable’ page, used by thousands of barbers everyday to manage their appointments.
Your work will impact thousands of small businesses across Europe.
