Second Nature's mission:

Obesity has become a global epidemic; in the UK, we spend £9 billion a year alone on diseases like type 2 diabetes (that’s 10% of the NHS budget). What’s shocking is most of this is preventable – through sustained lifestyle and habit change.

Enter Second Nature.

We’re here to help people take control of their health. By bringing together behavioural science, technology, and incredible people, our grand mission is to eradicate the global epidemic of chronic lifestyle diseases once and for all.

Our digital habit change programme – delivered digitally through mobile and web apps – helps people to improve their lifestyle, lose weight, and ultimately reduce their risk for conditions such as type 2 diabetes.

We’re also one of the few consumer health brands that are also actively commissioned by the NHS (for us, it’s to help people living with type 2 diabetes).

Their stage:

We have just closed our Series A fundraising (Dec 2019). We have a team of 100 people, which will continue to expand over the coming year, so it’s an exciting time to join!

The role:

  • Lead on the designs of new features ‘end-to-end’ making even the most complex problem into visually simple solutions.
  • Help to plan and run and evaluate qualitative user research studies, including user interviews, remote and in-person usability studies.
  • Champion user-centric design thinking across the company and maintain a collaborative design process.
  • Work closely with the rest of the product team / engineering to make decisions on features we build
  • Use quantitative data and user feedback to validate and iterate on features.
  • Plan and facilitate workshops where needed to gather insights and create actionable next steps
  • Identify gaps in both the product and the company to shape the future of the company
  • Consider users involved alongside business and technical requirements
  • Collaborate across teams to advice on design, UX and best practices across the board

Requirements:

  • You have experience designing for people and services in-house or at consultancies/service design agencies. You may also have experience as a designer in another discipline but have demonstrated how you skills are transferable.
  • You have demonstratable experience working on complex problems. You can tackle design problems autonomously, from beginning to end, from problem definition to iteration, through prototyping and user testing.
  • You have a good eye, capable of creating both low-fi sketches and pixel-perfect visual designs.
  • You have a clear rationale for your design decisions - everything is purposeful, you are strategic, analytical and a great problem solver.
  • You have excellent communication and storytelling skills, both in your design work and working across teams, engaging stakeholders across the design process.
  • You have an insatiable thirst to learn and strive to improve as a designer.
  • You have a ‘get things done’ enthusiastic attitude, you take initiative, don’t wait to be asked and are willing to get stuck in.
  • You have an online portfolio or PDF to share with us.
  • Please note that we are only accepting applications from UK residents

Benefits:

  • You can see the impact your work is having on improving people’s lives and tackling the obesity epidemic on a daily basis.
  • You will provide direct input into how we should improve our product, designing new features as well as improving existing parts of the product.
  • You’ll get to work with friendly, smart colleagues all incredibly passionate about solving the type 2 diabetes epidemic.
  • You’ll have autonomy and responsibility for your work direction.
  • There's plenty of opportunity for career progression.
  • You'll get exposure to the development of an early stage start-up
  • Currently the entire team is working from home, but we've always offered a flexible working environment where you can work from home when you need to and would continue to do this in future
  • We have regular company-sponsored socials (pub drinks, team dinners, board games and movie nights) - currently this is all remote but will hopefully be back to normal soon!
  • You can find out more about working with us here.

What you’ll do:

  • Help define and research the problems around skill development for employees and companies

  • Create simple user experiences 
  • Define the information architecture and visual design
  • Help build and evolve our design system
  • Work closely with Product and Engineering in planning and implementing sprints and projects
  • Talk with users and own the usability of the product
