FreeAgent 🚀

FreeAgent removes 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 apps, with over 125,000 customers.

Not to blow our own horn … but Accounting Web even named our accounting software the top bookkeeping product of 2020 and 2021! In 2021 FreeAgent was also voted client app of the year by ICB LUCA. The list could go on and on!

It’s not just our customers that love us, our employees do too ⭐ Find out more on Glassdoor.

We believe in the power of a collaborative, high-performing, and diverse team. We’d love you to join us on our journey.

The role 👷

We're looking for a Senior Product Designer to join our growing team to work on the core FreeAgent application.

Day-to-day, here’s what you'll do:

  • You’ll be in the driving seat and lead the design for your product area.
  • You'll be embedded in a cross-functional team and work closely with PMs, Engineers, and internal stakeholders to explore opportunities that lead to meaningful outcomes.
  • You'll work in close collaboration with our Research team to fully understand our users and their needs.
  • You'll proactively dig into existing insights, behavioral 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 whilst also using and contributing to our design system.
  • You'll be aware of 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 flow and features, and hi-fi prototypes to test workflows with internal stakeholders and FreeAgent users.
  • 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 🙌

This is a great role for you if:

  • You have at least 3+ years of relevant experience.
  • You have a track record of designing user interfaces for complex applications, translating user requirements into elegant, usable solutions.
  • You understand the importance of seeing the bigger picture to create the best user experience possible.
  • You take an empathetic approach to your design work and your working relationships.
  • You share ideas early and at key stages, and you actively seek out and encourage a range of feedback.
  • You’re confident at filtering and distilling opinions and feedback into meaningful responses.
  • You're naturally inclusive with regard to web standards, usability, and accessibility.
  • You can demonstrate fundamental UX methods.
  • You're a confident facilitator and communicator.
  • You’re able to respectfully navigate challenging situations alongside your team.
  • You're experienced working with a team end to end, to deliver features and improvements.


FreeAgent’s Product Designers form part of a wider design department that also includes Communications Designers and UX researchers. We work closely together, share work often, and collaborate across teams. As a product designer at FreeAgent you’ll be expected to champion your work and explain and promote your ideas.

Front and centre to our work, we strive tirelessly to create the very best experience for our customers. We'll encourage you to be brave, take risks and fail without fear, because we believe in the value of the journey and in learning by making. It’s fast-paced at times, but it’s always fun!
