At Personably, we’re building tools to help teams deliver an outstanding employee experience. With a background in fast-growing start-ups, we’ve seen how difficult it can be to ensure everyone gets the opportunity to thrive from day one.

Our focus right now is on making each hire’s onboarding period the best it can possibly be. That means building easy-to-use, intuitive, and beautiful tools. Early on, we’ve worked with the kinds of teams we know best - fast-growing, well-funded tech start-ups. But our vision goes beyond that - we want to improve the world of work for the majority, from small start-ups to big corporates. Help us get there.

Doing all this means creating a product that people want to use. Being easy isn't enough — it has to be indispensable. This is where you come in. We're looking to hire our first ever Product Designer to lead design and user experience across the whole company.

Here are three examples of projects you might work on:

• Improving the user onboarding flow of Personably’s product, so our new users can seamlessly set up their onboarding flow on first sign up. You’ll work as part of the tech team to iterate on your designs as it’s being built and once it’s been shipped!

• Ensuring our brand and tone of voice is consistent across the platforms we use - our website, application, blog and social media platforms.

• Overhauling the flow of the product to make it easy to use the ever increasing functionality - as the product develops it becomes increasingly important to maintain the simplicity our users love while introducing the features they need.

You would be a good fit for this role if:

• You have empathy for the end user of things you’ve designed.

• You find yourself looking at products and being unable to silence the voice in your head telling you where they could improve.

• You strive to make products that are intuitive to use and understand this sometimes means sacrificing what looks aesthetically best.

• You can balance the need to create something perfect with the speed and resources of an early stage start-up.

• You wouldn’t call yourself a developer but you have an idea of the resources needed to translate your designs into code.

• You have one to four years experience designing great products. If you’re a new grad, we might not be able to offer the mentorship that you’d need but if you have a great portfolio and want to show us what you can do apply anyway.

• This would be a great opportunity for someone with some experience, looking to make a mark and have full ownership of design across the brand and product at an exciting start-up.

What’s it like to work at Personably?

Early stage start-ups are hard work, but they can be hugely rewarding places to work. Two days are rarely the same, and you’ll often be expected to step outside of your comfort zone.

As a product designer, we want Personably to be a place you can develop your skills, try new tools and create products that exceed users’ expectations. But don’t be surprised if you get pulled away by the CEO to give your opinion on a new pricing model, find yourself pitching in to help with a community event we’ve organised, or helping our customers through our support chat.

We believe that as a new company, we’re in a strong position to put a real focus on diversity. In our experience, it becomes harder and harder to claw back the ideal of a diverse team as the company goes on. Given that, we’re placing a strong emphasis on hiring candidates with a varied background.

Benefits & Compensation

• 30K - 50K salary p/a depending on experience
• Stock options
• 27 days paid holiday + bank holidays

How to Apply

Send us an email at [email protected] with a few lines so we can get to know you, your CV, and some examples of your work or portfolio. We're based in London and you would be part of the team here so you'll need to have the right to work in the UK (we can't sponsor visa's). We'll let you know when we've seen your application and get back to you!
