Digital Designer

Competitive, negotiable salary & excellent company benefits

Trafford Park (5-minute walk from Media City)

 

You might be a talented and creative Digital Designer…

But can you create designs with brains too? Can you demonstrate your process?

If so, there might be a role for you with the UK’s leading mobile technology company.

We’re looking for a Digital Designer with a fantastic, varied portfolio to join our growing design team.

Show us your work. All of it, not just the end result. Show us the working out, the sketches, the bad ideas that led you to the good.

At Apadmi, you’ll get to work on really great projects and help build some truly extraordinary mobile experiences.

Following a UX-based approach to design, you’ll work closely with other designers, software consultants and developers to create digital solutions for many of the world’s most renowned companies.

We’re committed to producing creative, innovative and robust solutions to complex problems. We’re the people companies want building their app. Our team are all top of their game – we’ll expect nothing less from you.

Why would we hire you?

Because you have outstanding creative vision, genuine passion and enthusiasm for all things design. Your attention to detail is legendary. All around you, you see bad design – it’s like a disease. And you’re the cure.

You have a firm grasp of UX design principles and can demonstrate how you have converted functional requirements into beautifully crafted UIs using a variety of methods and tools, such as sketching, wireframing, low-fidelity prototyping and fully-designed interactive mockups.

You can work alongside developers with ease, teaching and learning in equal parts. You can chat to clients too, understanding their requirements and working with them to create something wonderful. All the while though, you are the user’s champion, making sure UX drives the solution to a problem.

Your colleagues all say you’re a real pleasure to work with and you can easily build rapport with teammates and clients alike. You’re friendly, an excellent communicator and can demonstrate a consistently high quality of work, even while under pressure. You’re proactive, self-disciplined and eager to be better at doing what you love – designing great UIs. One handed, while eating a burrito.

Above all, you use your skills to creatively communicate ideas, converting complexity into simplicity.

Why would you want to work at Apadmi?

If you join Apadmi as our next Digital Designer, you’ll get the opportunity to work alongside one of the best mobile development teams in the country, with the chance to make a difference to our every-day workings as a company.

We’ll never shun your ideas – if you think there’s a way we could improve our project operations, we want to hear it! As tech experts, we’re always looking for the latest developments in our industry that will help make us more efficient, so we expect the same from you.

We’re also rapidly expanding, so there are plenty of opportunities to progress within the Apadmi network.

Specific boxes to tick

You must be able to showcase a strong portfolio of visual design work, including UX design. Show us the lot, not just the public website. Show us more than one screen per project, at low-res and at a jaunty angle in an over-compressed PDF – you’re better than that.

You must be able to demonstrate a knowledge of mobile design principles and explain how it differs from web design.

You must have excellent SketchPhotoshop, Illustrator and InDesign skills. Those keyboard shortcuts are not going to learn themselves.

You must have experience of prototyping systems – Axure and Marvel would be our choice, but there are many – pick one. Build something. Amaze us.

Why you should join us

There are plenty of benefits to working with Apadmi – here are just a few…

  • Fitness fanatics

    For anyone wanting to keep fit and healthy you can join in with our football team, cross-fit sessions or running club.
  • Flexible working

    We’re an agile mobile tech company so we don’t follow the traditional 9-5. You’ll get flexible working hours at Apadmi that fit around commutes and commitments.
  • Free breakfast

    Fresh fruit and a plethora of bread loaves are delivered each morning to our HQ, plus we have free hot drinks throughout the day, so early birds won’t go hungry at our office.
  • Free parking at HQ

    We know finding somewhere to park for the day can be tricky as well as expensive, but our main office at Warren Bruce Court offers free and secure parking around the clock.
  • Pension scheme

    You won’t just get a competitive salary at Apadmi – we have a healthy pension scheme for all employees.
  • Social events

    Whether it’s a beer after work, or a few cocktails at the Christmas party, we have a packed social calendar with plenty of events for our team to let their hair down.
  • The Landing & The Fed

    Work from home, HQ or our new satellite offices. We’ve expanded to include The Landing in Media City and a city centre location in Federation House.
  • Training & Development

    We’re always looking for ways to improve, and that includes investing in staff, whether it’s internal workshops, attending key industry events or signing up for training courses.
