Job Description

Job title: Senior Product Designer 

Location: London/Bristol/Edinburgh/Lisbon (including hybrid)

Salary: £46,000 - £65,000

 

Kaluza wants to power a world where net-zero is within everyone’s reach, by building the platform that will accelerate a sustainable, affordable and resilient energy transition. It’s a huge challenge, but often the toughest problems are the most rewarding to solve.

Since launching in 2019, Kaluza’s technology has been empowering some of the biggest energy suppliers to better serve millions of customers.

From revolutionising billing to smart electric vehicle charging, our real-time cloud platforms transform supplier operations, reducing cost to serve and boosting engagement. And most importantly, they enable suppliers' customers to drive decarbonisation with smart, low carbon technologies.

 

Where in the world of Kaluza will I be working?

You’ll be joining the Kaluza Platform Design community. We’re made up of squad embedded Product Designers and cross-functional practices in Brand, Content Design, Design Ops, Research and Service Design.

We’re dedicated to forming partnerships with Product and Engineering to solve complex problems. For us that means everything we do, we apply platform thinking — going beyond user centred design — looking at the big picture of ecosystems, designing for interconnectedness and simplifying services.

 

What will I be doing?

You’ll be responsible for the end to end digital experiences our clients, energy retailers, provide to their customers. This means looking after key journeys, from submitting a meter read, renewing a contract, moving home and everything in between. You’ll ship high fidelity designs of new components and their variants and quickly prototype solutions to visual and interaction problems to test and discuss with your team.

Your first focus will be the component library. You’ll look to understand its scope, users, value and vision with the intention of improving it and expanding it. You’ll work through the introduction of new components and patterns end to end: from the initial research to visual design and documentation.

You’ll do this by:

  • Collaborating deeply with your product manager and team of engineers
  • Clearly articulating your ideas and decisions to internal and external stakeholders
  • Building on top of our design system and adhering to accessibility standards
  • Being a hungry self starter who can test solutions with users, using wireframes, mockups and prototypes
  • Crafting detailed and polished user interfaces, that solve concrete problems

 

Is this the job for me?

This is an incredibly exciting time to join the team, we have the foundations in place and now our focus turns to getting our product into the hands of more customers globally.

Ideally you will have:

  • Excellent attention to detail and a keen eye for good design
  • A track record of taking on long-term projects designing complex digital products that successfully solve user problems
  • A deep understanding of the product development process, from user experience research through to detailed UI and visual design
  • The ability to gather business requirements as well as user needs to craft solutions that meet in the middle
  • Mastery of UI design tools (we use Figma) and using components, symbols, styles and libraries
  • Knowledge of interaction design industry trends and patterns across all device types and screen sizes
  • The ability to shift gears in a fast changing environment
  • Experience with lean and agile approaches to product design delivery

Kaluza Values

Here at Kaluza we have five core values that guide us as a business: 

We’re on a mission, We build together, We’re inclusive, We get it done, We communicate with purpose.

Our values are not words on a wall — they are at the heart of our culture. They are how we make decisions and how we treat each other. They are concrete and clear, and reflect what we as people, and as a business, really care about.

Kaluza’s vision is to power a world where net-zero is within everyone’s reach. Would you be interested in joining us to help achieve this?

 

From us you’ll get

  • An additional 9% of your salary to spend on a wide range of benefits, including your pension, a selection of lifestyle, health and green benefits, or simply take it as cash!
  • Private Medical Insurance and Life Assurance
  • 26 days holiday, including a day off for your birthday you can take at any point
  • Flexible bank holidays, 5 of which you can choose to take whenever you like (3 are fixed days)
  • Progressive leave policies with no qualifying service periods, including 26 weeks full pay if you have a new addition to your family
  • Discretionary annual bonus
  • A dedicated personal learning budget
  • Flexible working — we trust you to work in a way that suits your lifestyle
  • And more...

Even better? You’ll have access to these benefits from day 1 when you join

 

We want the best people

We’re keen to meet people from all walks of life — our view is that the more inclusive we are, the better our work will be. We want to build teams which represent a variety of experiences, perspectives and skills, and we recognise talent on the basis of merit and potential.

We understand some people may not apply for jobs unless they tick every box. But if you're excited about joining us and think you have some of what we're looking for, even if you're not 100% sure, we'd still love to hear from you.
