Senior UI Designer

Job description

Famly is on a mission to completely transform the childcare industry. Yeah - we know! It's certainly not fintech, although we do have plenty of financial features in our product. We might not be the latest social media influencer platform, AI company, or produce ride-sharing skateboards.


But we do work in an industry where the work we do has a very real chance to ease stress, and save time for those who nurture and educate children. By doing so, it's a chance to have a positive effect on the lives of the children themselves.


Famly has been shaking up the childcare software industry for 7 years, and is now used by hundreds of thousands of parents every day in the UK, US, Germany, Denmark, and Norway. We’re a start-up based in central Copenhagen, and are expanding our product-market fit across various international markets.


Our users love our product, and in every market we enter, we find the sub-par usability of existing solutions has gone unchallenged for years. It’s a great landscape in which to bring a product that’s actually fit for 2020 - but we know we can do even better in terms of usability and visual consistency.


That’s why we need an experienced Senior UI Designer to take core parts of the Famly platform to the next level!


Job Description

We’re looking for an ambitious, structured, and talented UI Designer, who wants to learn and grow with the company. You'll be reporting to the Head of Product, working in a team of incredibly skilled people on a mission to make it easier to give children the best possible start to life.


Your responsibilities:

  • You'll own the process of iteratively developing UI design prototypes and, together with the Product Managers, getting user feedback, conducting user research, and analysing user behaviour to arrive at the best possible design solution.
  • Together with the Head of Product, you’ll be responsible for developing the Famly Design System, including formulating the vision for the overall IA, look and feel of the Famly product.
  • You’ll work closely with our developers to ensure your designs are implemented to the highest possible benefit of the user.


In short: It'll be your responsibility to take the usability and look and feel of Famly to the next level.


  • You have significant experience creating highly usable, intuitive user interfaces.
  • You’re able to design aesthetically-pleasing user interfaces and have a keen eye for detail.
  • You can clearly communicate the reasoning behind your design choices.
  • You are good at receiving and providing feedback, always able to take a step back and understand points of doubt from other people's perspectives.
  • You have experience with not just creating, but also evolving design systems.
  • You have a real drive to understand the users' needs
  • You have experience with user research and usability testing.
  • You’re well-organised by nature
  • You have an entrepreneurial spirit

We hold high ambitions on both a business and culture level and we want everyone we bring on board to share our passion for making a change in the lives of our users - and never settling for ‘good enough’ when it comes to what our product can do. That culture we mentioned? You’ll be part of an incredibly close team, with an unrivalled office location on Købmagergade in the centre of Copenhagen, Friday bars, coffee, lunch, laughs and learning!


We hope to get a chance to invite you in so you can see who we are for yourself - we can’t wait to meet you!
