Product Designer (UI/UX)

The agricultural industry is undergoing a profound change. Tightening regulatory requirements, reduced subsidies and changing sustainability needs of the society. These are a few of the wider trends in the sector that require farmers to change their approach and sharpen their focus. Data and technology give farmers the insight and opportunity to reverse the long-term decline in profitability and optimise their businesses for the future.

Want to make a difference?

YAGRO is an established, award-winning leader in commercial AgTech software, with hundreds of UK farming customers, strong revenue since launch in 2016, and long term financial support to reach our mission: make farming profitable and sustainable. Our team comprises farmers, entrepreneurs and technologists, passionate about making professional farmers lives easier and their businesses better.

We are operating within an industry characterised by manual processes and poor information exchange. We need to distil a complex and opaque supply chain with multiple actors into a simple, elegant and scalable multi-user platform, with industry-leading analytics and data insight and a flawless user experience. That's where you come in.

The opportunity is massive. Come capture it with us. 

The Product Designer Role

As product designer, you’ll join our product team to make YAGRO the most appealing and user-friendly analytics tool for farmers. You will work closely with our Head of Product and engineers to take designs from idea to implementation. Your primary focus will be the experience of our platform and to help design new - and redesign existing - features.

We need you to create meaningful, lasting software that deliver an immediate impact to our customers. We have ready demand for the next generation of our platform, which will focus on predictive data analytics and enterprise insights. 

What we expect you will do

  • Ask relevant questions and actively research our users, to understand who they are and what the real problems they face are.
  • Have a user-centric mindset and care more about solving the right problems than creating random features
  • Shape up rough ideas into more concrete proposals, from wireframes to detailed prototypes
  • Work together with the engineers to solve identified problems and help with the implementation
  • Measure the impact of your solutions, using both qualitative and quantitative methods, and iterate when appropriate.
  • Standardising our design artefacts, developing a style guide/design system
  • Collaborate with the Head of Product to define and develop the product roadmap

Who are we looking for? 

  • You have 3+ years of work experience as a Product Designer UX/UI, working on user research, wireframing, prototyping, UI/UX design and usability testing for web applications.
  • You have created beautiful things that you are proud of and you can show in your portfolio
  • You possess excellent critical thinking, problem solving and communication skills
  • You are self-motivated with little need for supervision, but a dedicated team player who drives results
  • You have experience with Figma, Sketch, Framer or similar software
  • You ideally know HTML/CSS and JS
  • You are fluent in spoken and written English

Where?

Our office is located in Cambridge, UK. We operate a hybrid working model that gives employees the flexibility to work from home, but we meet every few weeks in the office. We would prefer you to live within reasonable travelling distance (train journey or short flight), but feel free to apply if you live further afield. 

Should you apply?

Above all, you’re excited by our vision and share our core values: we’re always learning; always looking for new challenges; we inspire each other; we are open and honest; we trust each other and aren’t afraid to give or accept responsibility and autonomy; and we have fun! 

For the right person, there’s a strong salary, whatever equipment you need and a license to transform an industry and improve the lives of users across the globe. 

To apply, please email a CV to info@yagro.com together with a brief cover note. We’re interested in what you’ve done, but what we really care about is where you’re going.
