Your Mission:

Our Experience Design function is run out of London, New York & San Francisco.  If you enjoy designing digital customer experiences and have an interest in understanding how the underlying technologies are used to bring a concept to life, this role based in our London office, could be ideal for you. As a UI Designer, you will work on Medidata’s next generation of SaaS based clinical trial management applications and play a key role in helping us provide value to our users.

You will be helping us refine and evangelise our nascent Design System. There is still much to be done around refining our style guide, moving from a siloed way of designing our products to a more holistic, coherent, way of designing solutions across products and features. You will be a crucial part of that in our UK office.

  • Present your ideas to a varied audience from user experience designers, product managers to technical architects and developers
  • Be an active contributor and evangelist for our still nascent Design System

As a Team Member:

  • Work positively and productively with the Developers, Business Analysts and Product Managers
  • Help the team present the work done to the clients/users and get useful feedback

What we are looking for in you:

  • Proven professional experience in designing brand identities, grid systems, editorial layouts and applications for web, desktop and mobile
  • Solid understanding of user-centred design methods across the full UI/UX lifecycle
  • Confidence in communicating, defending, and building consensus around UI thinking
