The role: Senior UX Designer

We are looking for a Senior UX Designer to join our GSTP team in Sofia!

Our tech teams work remotely within Bulgaria, occasionally you’ll need to come to the office in Sofia. Not often, but up to 4-5 times a month and of course, we’ll cover all related expenses. Working as a team is what makes us great and spending quality time together is essential for keeping us mission-aligned.

Are you our next star player?

Come and join a new team to build exciting new products featuring rock-solid stability, high velocity code-shipping and ground-breaking innovation. We’re lean, we’re agile, and DevOps is at the centre of everything we do! And you’re in good company: you’ll be standing on the shoulders of the giants who crafted the most popular apps and products of their kind.

Why we need you

You’ll work on the most critical, strategic projects at the heart of the world’s largest public online gaming business, with funding and opportunities to match our huge ambition.

It’s your chance to work on greenfield developments where you’ll build and run new products that will ultimately be used by millions around the world, building on your career so far and learning new tech skills to tackle problems that only exist at this scale.

Who we’re looking for

We are seeking a Lead Product Designer who will act as a mentor, domain specialist and leader across all 3 tribes of GSTP from the new global Sportsbook to trading and risk management.

For you, design doesn’t just mean sitting behind a desk producing outstanding visuals and user journeys (although you’ll be doing that regularly) it means acting as a leader and mentor to the rest of the design and product teams across GSTP.

You’ll be able to facilitate effective large scale workshops with the partners right up to Director level, use your design skills to produce beautiful visuals and bring our customers to life through interpreting research, reading the market and anticipating (and being one step ahead) of our customers next moves.

Your experience:

  • You’re an outstanding communicator and partner manager. You can build strong relationships with researchers, designers and UX architects, product managers and the wider team. You’ll also be a ‘force to be reckoned with’ – a domain specialist whose opinion is respected because of your depth of skills and expertise.
  • You’re a visionary designer of online and mobile products. You’ll be able to easily switch not just between mobile and desktop but also between iOS and Android and all the variants in between. You’ll have an in depth understanding of the nuances of each format and will use this to bring beautiful and impactful customer experiences to life.
  • You can organise, facilitate and lead regular innovation sessions, product reviews, and design sprints.
  • You keep up to date with the latest industry trends and share this with internal communities, using your presentation skills and partner network that you will create.
  • You’ve worked in a dynamic, collaborative, transparent, non-hierarchal culture.

Your skills:

  • Expertise in web design, mobile design and the nuances of different formats. You’ll utilise outstanding skills in prototyping software, Adobe CC and more.
  • Solid grasp of how to direct user researchers in planning, facilitating and analysing field research, e.g. diary studies, contextual interviews and interpreting the results into forward-thinking experiences.
  • Delegating work across the design team, utilising your team in the most effective way.
  • Acting as a peer with Senior Product Managers and Heads of Product in steering our product towards excellence. You’ll challenge where needed and roadmaps will change because of your influence.

Your behaviours:

You’re someone who can spot opportunity in the detail and who isn’t afraid to challenge the status quo – you’ll obsess about the customer at all times and won’t have any problem challenging other senior leaders where you think we aren’t doing what’s right for them. We’ll expect you to look inside and outside the market place for market opportunities in key areas like navigation, feature set and more. You have an obsession for the finer detail, constantly striving for perfection. And finally, you thrive in a fast-paced, results driven organization.

What’s in it for you?

Our experience-based salaries are competitive. Plus, there’s a discretionary annual performance bonus. And we provide advice and dedicated assistance to those moving to Bulgaria.

Your package will include:

  • health and dental insurance for you, your partner and your children (if you all live at the same address)
  • a personal interest allowance to let you learn something new or pursue a hobby
  • 1000 BGN as congratulations if you have a baby whilst you work for us
  • in-house training and development to develop your skills, progressing your career
  • free fresh fruit, snacks and drinks in the office
  • contribution towards your transportation and lunch expenses
  • relaxation areas around the office, including a PlayStation and Pool table
  • sports program and social events; including our sensational summer and Christmas parties

What happens next?

If you’re what we’re looking for, next up will be a phone interview. And if that goes well, we’ll meet you for a face-to-face interview.
