Senior UI Designer

Product and Tech • Flexible remote • Old Street

We’re looking for a UI designer to join our growing design team and help us build digital experiences that genuinely enhance people’s lives. We’re trying to shake up an entire heckin’ industry.

About Us

YuLife is creating a new kind of insurance company. Our mission is to inspire people to live longer, happier and healthier lives. We provide life insurance to companies and drive employee wellbeing through meaningful, engaging and rewarding experiences inspired by our favourite games, apps and products.

We live by a simple principle and we strive to translate this to our designs: always seek the win-win in everything we do. This means we should always be giving more than we take with every interaction. Sounds good?

The Role

We’re looking for a Senior UI Designer to join our growing design team and help us build digital experiences that genuinely enhance people’s lives. We’re trying to shake up an entire heckin’ industry and that requires radically creative and free thinking individuals.

We want to work with enthusiastic, passionate and hard-working people who are ready to go on this wild and rewarding journey with us.

Our ideal candidate is self-reliant and flexible - somebody who wants to do their best work and make an impact in an exciting high-growth company and help to foster a culture of design thinking. Somebody practical and proactive, who takes pride in their work and actively seeks feedback.

You will have the ability to:

  • Deliver visually engaging and best-in-class user interfaces to spec, across multiple projects spanning mobile and web
  • Work closely with product owners, UX designers and researchers, developers and QA in order to create beautiful and usable end-to-end experiences
  • Understand customer needs and business goals in order to solve problems through visual design and UI, from lo-fi sketching to high fidelity prototyping

You’ll need to have:

  • A minimum of 4 years experience designing products in the commercial sphere, with a big focus on mobile app UI design

  • Experience designing, testing and maintaining complex components within design systems built for scale
  • Motion and interaction design experience, proficient with prototyping tools such as Principle, Flinto, etc.
  • Excellent communication skills and the ability to work harmoniously with colleagues located around the world

We’d love it if you also:

  • Have an interest in video game UX/UI design or just love gaming (in an insurance company? - you better believe it!)
  • Are an expert at motion design or advanced prototyping with tools such as Framer or AfterEffects
  • Have a strong grasp of the pen tool in order to create your own assets, from iconography to illustrations
