Do you enjoy developing beautiful and effective web interfaces? Would you relish the challenge of pushing design boundaries within a corporate university identity, and provide excellent user experiences for potential and current students?
The UX Developer is a new post within the Web Development Team at the University of Kent. It offers you a fantastic chance to play a key role in shaping the user experience of the University’s online presence, and the establishment of a framework to ensure on-going brand consistency on the web.
You will be working in an enthusiastic and highly motivated team to design, develop and support key University web systems. You will maintain close relationships with a range of customers and stakeholders across the University to understand their requirements and translate them into attractive, effective, and responsive designs.
You will have a passion for great design.
You should be familiar with current UX theory and practice – such as responsive design and mobile-first methodology – and have an understanding of how to shape the user experience to meet their needs. A key skill set will be your ability to determine those needs by planning user testing and gathering usage data.
Your key technical skills will include a good working knowledge of HTML5 and CSS3, and tools such as Adobe Photoshop.
With this role the IS Web Development Team will have 8 people who are responsible for key web systems. They use an agile approach to software development and were nominated for a UK Agile award in 2012.
