UX Designer

Angel Solutions creates pioneering web-based software that serves the education industry (teachers, leaders, school improvement officers, education data analysts and more). 

Most of our products are designed to save people time and deliver powerful data analysis, but that's not all we're about! We also strive to be creative and innovative in everything we do, and want to remain a friendly, close-knit team even as the company continues to grow.

  • As comfortable plotting out user journeys, as bringing those journeys to life in Adobe XD, Figma, Invision or similar?
  • Someone who keeps up-to-date with industry trends, and will embrace opportunities to innovate and learn at a company where hard work and creativity is rewarded?
  • Are you passionate about advocating for user-centred design, and putting UX at the heart of developing digital products?  
  • Keen to make a real difference to health and educational outcomes in the UK, and beyond? 

Can you:

  • Design interactive applications that are easy and intuitive to use?
  • Make complicated data look beautiful and easy to understand?
  • Use UX techniques such as workshops, interviews and user testing to develop an understanding of problems and how to solve them?

  • Updating the design or content of our external websites
