Work closely with other designers and the ThoughtFarmer product team to brainstorm and design new features.
Help create and improve our design system and processes.
Work with ThoughtFarmer clients to help them implement their intranets.


You have great interpersonal skills and an ability to solve complex problems and think creatively. You're keen to learn new methods, and you keep on top of emerging trends in user-centred design methodologies and web application development. You're also open to considering different approaches to solving problems.

Experience designing websites, web apps, or digital products.
Understanding of user-centered design and interaction design.
Ability to distill complex problems and workflows into simple, intuitive designs.
Good communication and presentation skills, with the ability to communicate design rationale.
