Job Description

Blend analysis and imagination and what do you get? Product Design!

As a Graduate Product Designer, you’re creating for the user.

It’s all about solving problems that matter to our users. In order to do that, you need to really understand our users by conducting research and using those insights to create products that meet the customers’ needs.

You are responsible for designing a product or feature that is valuable to customers and solves the intended problem. The experiences you create will be useful, usable and enjoyable for our customers. This requires a mix of analysis and imagination.

As a product designer you are responsible for how the user interface looks, feels and behaves. You ensure the interface is attractive, functional and adheres to brand or style guidelines.

Beyond the knowledge and value you provide through your specialist skills, you gather and share information on multiple subjects that maximises the value that you bring, as well as enabling you to work in the most efficient and effective way.

 

Day to day you could be:

  • Turning user research into tangible ideas that form behavior changing features.
  • Taking part in discovery, workshop and co-design sessions with customers and colleagues.
  • Designing workflows and detailed interactions that brings the experience to life.
  • Validating designs with our users.
  • Thinking conceptually, as well as obsessing over the detail.
  • Work closely with engineers as they build and release.
  • Working to increase awareness of what a great experience feels like throughout the business.

We invest in the future of our business and technology by continuously experimenting with new techniques and tools. In return this helps keep our products and processes modern, effective and efficient for the user.

If you choose to join us, you’ll receive industry training, wide-reaching career opportunities and a wealth of support through our Early Careers Network, buddy, line manager & mentor scheme. You’ll also join onto our 2-year structured Graduate Development Programme, which is packed with workshops, short-courses & online material designed to help kick-start your career.

 

Our concept is simple. We believe in expanding horizons – it’s what makes Experian a global leader and a Top UK Tech Employer.

Qualifications

You’ll have recently achieved or be on track to achieve a minimum 2:2 degree classification, with a Bachelor’s degree in Technology, Graphic Arts, or a Communication field.

Don’t have a degree in those fields? That’s ok. We’re looking for creative individuals with strong communication skills who are able to present and explain their design decisions & have the ability to think outside the box.

You’ll be finding creative ways to solve design challenges and improve the customer experience. Therefore, it’s important you can apply critical thinking and problem-solving skills to find solutions that put customers at the heart of it. You’ll be working with people across a variety of teams, meaning communication and collaboration skills are key.
