UX Designer

London, England, United Kingdom · Product Design

Description

Who we are

Ostmodern are a mix of researchers, designers and technologists based in a bright and energetic studio in Shoreditch. We’re committed to designing, building and evolving the world’s best video-based consumer products.

The company was founded as a UX and Design agency, specialising in video-on-demand products for clients like Channel 4 and ITV in 2006. Since then, we’ve built on our excellent reputation, expanding into the sports industry and building up our technical capabilities, allowing us to deliver products end-to-end.

Today, we’re proud to deliver flagship products for major broadcast and sports organisations, including Formula 1, BBC, Arsenal, and Channel 4, right down to tiny startups who can benefit from our expertise. We operate at the high end of our markets, working with clients who want to innovate, and who appreciate the importance of user insights.


Skylark

Spotting the absence of a fast and flexible next-generation CMS in the market, we simply developed our own. Skylark is a purpose built platform, shaped by the unique insights we have learned from years of creating innovative digital products for our clients. It has helped us as a business in learning what makes a good product and also given us the chance to learn about building a great product.


How we work

We hire people who know their craft, and love working alongside colleagues with varied skill-sets, backgrounds and viewpoints. We believe strongly in the power of empathy; working as a united team, learning what forces are driving and challenging clients, and understanding their audiences’ motivations and anxieties.

We work in cross-discipline project teams, who are given full ownership of their delivery and client relationship. Teams work in scrum methodologies, and are encouraged to hone their approach, finding right blend of ceremonies and tools for them and their client. Together, they solve difficult problems and deliver innovative, intuitive products that millions of people use every day.

As a UX designer, you’ll work with peers who genuinely care about the craft of design, and constantly challenge themselves to improve the way they conceive and execute design systems. You’ll be integral in the process of defining and designing the products you create; we don’t treat UX as an afterthought, you’re not just hear to wireframe what someone else has defined.


How we relax

We’re here to work hard, but not work ourselves to death. We have beers and cocktails every Friday, and breakfast (BreakfOst™) every Wednesday. People hang out together in various ways, either climbing, playing chess, competing in the darts league, or just going to pub.

We have a monthly all-staff meeting, quarterly off-sites, and each team has a monthly social budget to use however they choose.
