Senior Product Designer, Defence

London | Defence

Join our defence and national security business and you’ll be helping users plan and train to meet the most complex security threats in the world. Working alongside experts in AI and Machine Learning, computational modelling and distributed systems, you’ll be putting multiplayer technology to life-saving use.

You will join a small team of product designers with deep appreciation for modern product development and design principles and processes. We are innovative and optimistic; we are also pragmatic and we execute at the highest standard.

Our products will be used by leading planners, logisticians and analysts to support critical decision-making across governments. We are responsible for understanding their processes, needs and pain points, and we identify opportunities to translate them into value-adding product features.

We are building a simulation-enhanced decision support tool for operational planning (OpDST). This will allow users to create and design plans for scenarios and run complex models at scale.

  • Responsible for executing the design process end-to-end, from discovery to delivery
  • Lead and participate in user research and product development workshops
  • Lead client engagement and developing trustful and collaborative relationships with the clients and end users
  • Develop in-depth knowledge of the defence industry and our users to make informed design decisions
  • Translate insight into design concepts to test and validate design directions and decisions
  • Work closely with product managers and engineering teams to define and prioritise features
  • Collaborate with engineers to implement designs to the highest quality

  • Experience in leading B2B customer and stakeholder engagement
  • Fluent in modern product design approaches and foundational interaction design principles and patterns
  • Experience of shipping digital products, ideally in a B2B setting
  • Strong prototyping skills at different fidelities
  • Ability to produce production level visual and interaction design
  • Strong communication skills, and a collaborative working style
  • The ideal candidate would have an understanding of front-end technologies.
  • Experience with data visualisation and/or geographic information system (GIS) would be a significant advantage.
While we think the above experience could be important, we’re keen to hear from people that believe they have valuable experience to bring to the role. If you identify with the team and mission, but not all of our requirements, then please still apply.
