FreeAgent 🚀

FreeAgent aims to remove the stress and pain of dealing with business finances. From the very beginning in 2007, our aim was to create a product that would make an impact and improve the lives of micro-businesses in the UK. Now FreeAgent is one of the UK's most popular online accounting software providers, with over 125,000 customers.

Not to blow our own horn … but Accounting WEB even named FreeAgent the top bookkeeping product of 2020 and 2021. And in 2021 our mobile app was also voted ‘Client App of the Year’ by ICB LUCA. The list could go on!

It’s not just our customers who love us, our employees do too ⭐

The role 👷

We’re looking for a Product Designer who can collaborate with internal and external stakeholders, and work across teams to create a unified customer journey.The role is perfect for someone who cares deeply about the end-to-end user experience and can look at the big picture as well as sweat the details.

As well as working on the FreeAgent product, this is an exciting opportunity to work with external design teams, providing domain expertise and guidance. As a result, communication and collaboration are key to this role.

Day-to-day, here’s what you'll do:

  • You'll be embedded in a cross-functional team and work closely with Product Managers and Engineers to explore opportunities that lead to meaningful outcomes.
  • You’ll collaborate closely with both internal and external stakeholders, providing direction and guidance where required.
  • You'll work in close collaboration with our Research team and external design teams to fully understand our users and their needs.
  • You'll proactively dig into existing insights, behavioural data, and work with our domain experts to help drive the FreeAgent product forward.
  • You'll collaborate with other product designers to solve problems and craft consistent experiences.
  • You'll be knowledgeable about our business goals, risks, and engineering possibilities and work within constraints, knowing when to make trade-offs.
  • You'll use your facilitation skills to bring people together to explore and ideate.
  • You'll create rapid lo-fi prototypes to communicate user flows and features, and hi-fi prototypes to test workflows with stakeholders and FreeAgent users.
  • You’ll work with external stakeholders to map customer journeys whilst also providing design direction and domain expertise.
  • You'll deliver high-quality, consistent designs and documentation for our engineering team and design system team.
  • You'll be part of our growing design community, participating in meaningful design discussions, including crits, forums, and drop-ins.
  • You’ll encourage the growth and development of colleagues through advice sessions and sharing learning materials.
  • You’ll work with peers and leadership to make the best space possible for design to happen and ensure teams are set up for success.
