Your well-established career in UX Design has already proven just how passionate you are about bridging the gap between great digital products and real human users. It's just one of the passions that makes you so unique. Which is why a UX Designer with your seniority will be an incredible addition to the transformative business that is Sage.

You'll take the lead on projects, working with a team of talented developers to imagine better user experiences and make them a reality. There's no toe-dipping here. You'll be working on UX projects that you'll own from their very beginnings, right through the development process, until you take them over the finish line and make life better for Sage users. And we're talking hundreds of thousands of end users across seven countries.

Issued with a MacBook Pro and graphics drawing tablet, you'll have everything you need to get stuck in right away. But before any of that, you'll spend time getting to know your colleagues and our customers so you can understand them and work out how you'll not only meet their needs but wow them with your flair for UX.

Personal development doesn't stop with UX - you'll also be improving your own understanding on our dedicated learning days, with the opportunity to attend (or even speak at) conferences on latest innovations in the field. If you're at home on the cutting edge and you're ready to make a big impact with the special work you do - this is your chance.
