Full time, Preferably London-based

About us:

BeZero Carbon is a global ratings agency for the Voluntary Carbon Market. Our ratings allow all market participants to price and manage risk. BeZero’s ratings and research tools support buyers, intermediaries, investors, and carbon project developers.

Founded in April 2020, our 60-strong team combines climatic and earth sciences, sell-side financial research, earth observation, machine learning, data and technology, engineering, and public policy expertise. Our head office is in London, and our people work from six continents.

Job Description:

BeZero is looking for a Senior Product Designer to join our nascent Product team. This design role will be focused on shaping the future of our ratings platform, BeZero Carbon Markets.

The team is an autonomous and empowered one. We’re looking for someone who can find practical, iterative, elegant solutions to design challenges; suggest design trade-offs when the time to market is paramount; and work with/communicate these to the product managers and engineers.

Responsibilities:

  • Building a comprehensive understanding of our customer
  • Running discovery and leading user research
  • Making strategic design decisions for the product
  • Sketching and concepting
  • Workshopping solutions with the team
  • Prototyping and validating solutions
  • Representing the voice of the customer
  • Crafting production-ready designs
  • Managing the assets, libraries and story-books

Our ideal candidate will have:

  • Good communication skills - we are constantly communicating in very technical language to each other one minute and in layman’s terms to non-technical people the next.
  • Experience working with a multi-disciplinary engineering team - we’re constantly looking for that perfect balance between implementing the perfect solution and a practical solution.
  • Demonstrable UX/UI/IA skills - this is a cross-functional design role which will favour those who have a breadth of skills.
  • Experience carrying out user research - we’re constantly planning, conducting, analysing and collaborating findings in order to feed back into the design process.
  • Preferred: Experience working with graphing/charting and data-intensive interfaces (such as digital financial technology products)

What we’ll offer:

  • Competitive remuneration and opportunity for equity in a rapidly growing VC-backed start-up through share options
  • Opportunity to be a core member of the product function within a high-growth environment
  • Potential to grow into increased responsibility quickly
  • The chance to build products for customers that include some of the largest companies in the world
  • Ability to learn and develop alongside a range of sector specialists from the scientific, economic and business community
  • Opportunity to work in a cross-cutting role, interacting with lots of different parts of the business
  • Growth opportunities that come from working at a fast-paced VC-backed technology business
  • Flexible working arrangements: A central London office space (Old Street) if you wish to work from an office, but opportunity to work completely remote as well.
  • 25 days leave (with additional time off between Christmas and New Year, and for your birthday)
  • Private medical insurance, dental, critical illness cover, income protection, life assurance, medical cash plan, cycle to work scheme, and a health and wellness cash allowance.
  • Opportunity for share options.
  • Regular social events

Our interview process:

  • Initial screening call (15 mins)
  • Second interview with the Product team (~1 hour)
  • Design task (time-boxed to 1 hour, 3 days to return it to us)
  • Final interview with Senior Management (45 mins)
  • Reference checks + offer
