A little bit about us...
TheAlloy is a UK top-ten design innovation consultancy founded in 1999. From our base in Surrey UK, we work with clients from many sectors, all over the world, creating better experiences through integrated product design, interaction design and design strategy. Our success has led to a great client mix that combines long-term repeat business partners with a steady flow of new business. We work for both start-ups and some of the world's largest brands like Samsung, HP and Toshiba.
As an employee-owned business we aim to offer careers, not just jobs, with on-going professional development and mentoring, to help every team member achieve our shared goal: creative excellence in everything that we do.
What we are looking for...
We are looking for a talented Visual Designer to join our UI team to build engaging and successful on-screen interactions. We need somebody who can work within an established team but show initiative and drive to work autonomously. Attention to detail, an eye for pixel perfect layouts and a stickler for accessibility & inclusivity are an absolute must.
As a Visual Designer on our UI team we are looking for someone who can combine desirability and usability by manipulating pixels to control icons, colour, type, visual hierarchy and behaviours.
Consultancy experience is desirable but a passion for user experience and a constant drive for learning and bettering yourself will go a long way. Whilst we know you’re not a developer you should be able to hold your own while conversing with software engineers about development strategies as well as with clients about understanding their brand and their users. You should have excellent information and graphic presentation skills with a strong understanding of interaction design principles for embedded, web or mobile solutions. The ability to create interactive simulations to showcase your visual creativity is a must.
What you can expect...
The projects you will be working on here are not your average web applications. We work across many diverse sectors including healthcare, consumer electronics, broadcast and finance to name but a few. Within these sectors we deliver on multiple platforms such as tablets, mobile, tv, desktop & embedded ce devices as well as browser based applications. We will provide a challenging but exciting and rewarding work environment that promises to push and support you in your future career development. As we are 'employee owned' it's in our interest to make sure you are performing to your best and we know you'll be doing that when you're enjoying yourself.
