UX/UI Designer

Plexus Services

Plexus is on a Mission to Transform the Value of Legal Services. We are rapidly becoming a global SaaS business with offices in the UK and Australia.

  • Plexus people are relentlessly curious, hell-bent on challenging the status quo
  • We set the bar high, are outcome focused and hate politics
  • We embrace change, as there are no maps for where we are going
Our new UX / UI Designer will work within our current Product UI Designer, Product team and with our Engineering team to deliver beautifully simple, user-centric solutions that our clients love using. You’ll be responsible for contributing UI designs with UX thinking for new features and improvements to our product suite as part of an agile product development process with our Melbourne based engineering teams. We believe the breakdown of the role would be 70% UI and 30% UX with some flexibility depending on what is being worked on.
  
In addition to the product development cycle activities, you will be a part of the team defining and developing a new design system. As it evolves, you will take on joint responsibility for overseeing its maintenance as well as the application of the product style guide and components library across the UI of the product suite. 
  
If you lean towards the multi-tasker side of front end design, this role includes an opportunity to take on or grow into front-end development tasks including using HTML5, CSS, React and Javascript to build a SaaS enterprise front-end, and/or building and maintaining design system components to help us to craft a world-class scalable and innovative SaaS product suite. 
  
Key objectives:
  • Prepare wireframes, high fidelity mock-ups and prototypes, and work with the product owner to define specifications to brief developers and evolve requirements on agile sprint activities.
  • Achieve continual improvement and adherence to the style guide and UX principles by seeking peer review and guidance from the lead UX designer.
  • Support the development teams to define and implement user interface designs and interactions throughout the sprint cycle.
  • Contribute towards the user experience research and design effort for specific items from the roadmap.
  • Routinely evaluate the product and provide ideas for UI and UX improvements.
  • Work collaboratively with the product and engineering teams to provide input to aid with final decision making and form part of a cross functional team with various levels of engagement with Product, Engineering, Marketing, Customer Success and Sales to understand and define the user experience of the Plexus products.
  • Contribute to the product roadmap and provide constructive feedback to enhance and move it forward between releases.
  • Build a body of knowledge through quantitative and qualitative research that describes our target users and how current users adapt to, utilise and adopt the Plexus products.
  • Clearly identify and develop user personas, user flows and other artifacts that describe the users of the Plexus products and how they use them.
  • Develop and maintain a relevant Design System that grows and develops in a manner that can be utilised for the benefit of improving the Plexus products.
  • Define and measure the success of the UI and UX functions.
  • Assist in creating and maintaining the design process and communicating it throughout the product and engineering teams.
