About the company:

Annotate provides smarter document collaboration made for the digital workplace. We provide a single, secure platform that gets everyone working together seamlessly, from first draft to final sign off. Our intuitive, feature-rich solution is used to create, share, discuss, review and verify documents, by over 250,000 customers with household names such as: IBM, Samsung, FedEx and the University of Cambridge. Our customers use Annotate to support smarter collaboration for internal and cross-organizational teams, while maintaining compliance, security and good information governance.

Annotate Software are looking for someone to own the overall UX experience of their SaaS products. This is a combination role requiring both UX and digital design skills, and you will be responsible for the overall usability, look and feel of 2 major SaaS products - one a generalist document collaboration system and digital workspace across cloud, private cloud and enterprise, and one across a digital workspace specifically for the legal sector.

The role of the Senior UX Service Designer:

You will be an evangelist for user-centred design, UX, and UI, and the overall champion for design thinking within the entire organisation. Working very closely with the Product Managers, every single decision you make or advocate for will be in the interests of a simple, functional, easy user experience, and simplifying many complex user journeys and workflows into a coherent and elegant whole. The job is not to make things look nice - it's to make a very complex digital product work well.

You will have significant responsibilities in defining the UX role in our agile development process, working very closely with senior members of the technical, product, and sales teams, explaining your decisions up to and including board level. You will be able to educate and empower developer teams in design thinking, getting them to output code and build products that have user experience front and centre.

You will not be afraid of your designs going from scoping to live in production in a month or less, and you will not be afraid of getting things wrong, failing quickly and then rapidly iterating to improve it. For us, fast is better than perfect. Our aim is to fail quickly and fix quickly.
