Are you looking for a digital design role in Manchester?

We are looking for a digital designer to join our small design group. Our designers work as part of multi-disciplinary development teams on public transit apps, which are used on a daily basis by millions of people in cities around the world. The role can encompass everything from UX design, to prototyping to (transit) map creation.

We are rolling out a new generation of transit products for subway networks to all the cities we cover worldwide. This role will initially be heavily involved with this – a substantial amount of time will be spent working with the rest of the design team on all aspects of these apps, including re-imagined transit maps for those subway systems.

Experience or knowledge in some aspects of digital design is essential, as is an enthusiasm for finding solutions to complex design problems. Experience is also preferred with mobile apps and general UX design approaches and principles. We also look for people who can contribute a fresh perspective to the team, adding to our culture and challenging us always to improve.

Our award-winning team works within the Scrum framework, using the best and latest working practices within the mobile app industry. As we use Scrum, it means that everyone in the team has a voice about how we develop products and features, meaning you will be able to make a difference from day one.

Company benefits and culture

At Mapway we pride ourselves on having a wide range of company benefits from competitive salaries, 31 days holiday (including bank holidays and a 3-day Christmas shutdown) and an employee discount scheme.

Our culture is to work hard but in a relaxed surrounding and to provide a comfortable and engaging environment, we offer flexible working hours, a casual dress code and a fully stocked kitchen (including fruit, bread and a top of the range bean to cup coffee machine).

We all like a good social event and as a company we’ve held a few memorable ones over the years to thank the team for their hard work. Past events have included nights out at The Comedy Store, Go Ape, summer BBQ’s and a company treasure hunt around Manchester city centre with text message clues along the way.
