Job Description

Who we are, what we do amp; why we do it

We are Dext. Our suite of tools makes accountants more productive, profitable and powerful. In doing so we give them back the most precious commodity, time, which they can then use to add greater value to their clients.

Accountants and bookkeepers are the backbone of every successful business. For more than a decade we’ve empowered our partners with innovative technology solutions to make businesses better. Dext allows them to meet the challenges they face today, tomorrow and in the future.

We are looking for an experienced design leader who is able to use evidence and knowledge of user behaviour and needs to help shape and develop product strategy for areas of Dext's platform.

You will work with the area leadership (product management, engineering and you) to ensure that teams are clear about their objectives and missions, and that they have the clarity of purpose to move quickly and autonomously.

This role is responsible for the quality and coherency of UX within the design teams, as such you are expected to ensure that the teams are working within our design standards, and contributing to and using our design system, as well as ensuring our system meets the needs of the contributing teams.

The role (what you’ll do):

  • You will be the lead designer for a number of key areas of Dext platform, working alongside product management and engineering leadership for that area.
  • You will be responsible for the quality and coherency of your area’s execution across the channels and touchpoints they deliver to.
  • You will ensure that local knowledge and improvements are considered and evaluated in terms of their contribution to the platform as a whole.
  • You will collaborate with other area leadership teams within Design and Product, making sure that the customer journeys across and along all areas of the platform are coherent, effective and consistent.
  • You will lead by example, willing to dive in to teams to support and help them where needed. You understand when to be hands-on, and when you need to be a mentor.
  • You will support the channel leadership teams by bringing deep knowledge of the needs and goals of customers’ interactions within your area to shape strategies, and collaborating with your area leadership team to contextualise them into your area.
  • You will directly line-manage UX designers who work within the Dext design function: we want to make sure management is designed to meet the needs of everyone involved, so these designers won’t necessarily be part of your area or located in the same office as you.

About you (what we are looking for):

  • You have the ability to demonstrate the process and outcome of an evidence-based approach that you’ve employed on previous projects.
  • You understand how to select and develop appropriate methods for prototyping and when to apply them as tools to remove risk.
  • You have experience using Sketch, Figma or equivalent.
  • You are regarded as an expert in designing products for web or native platforms.
  • You are strategically minded and a creative thinker.
  • You are aware of the latest trends within the industry.
  • You are stimulating and challenging to work with; keen to drive things forward every day.
  • You are a confident leader that knows how to motivate a team.

These are our ideal requirements, but we hire on potential, not just on experience, and we know that some people are less likely to apply for a role if they don’t meet 100% of the criteria. At Dext we are committed to cultivating a diverse, inclusive and empowering culture, so please apply if you meet the majority of these competencies.

What you will be a part of:

We are a highly ambitious, innovative, market-leading FinTech. We are a global, well-funded business but have the dexterity and pace of a scale-up. We are uncompromising in our desire to achieve our best, day-in day-out, and we have three clear values which guide everything we do:

Be Brave - Everyone in the company has a voice to challenge ideas and the status quo.

Be Exceptional - We set high standards for ourselves. We aim to be exceptional at what we do.

Be Together - We are one team. There is no such thing as individual success without team success.
