Product – Consumer Products /
FARFETCH exists for the love of fashion. Our mission is to be the global platform for luxury fashion, connecting creators, curators and consumers.
We're a positive platform for good, bringing together an incredible creative community made up by our people, our partners and our customers. This community is at the heart of our business success. We welcome differences, empower individuality and celebrate diverse skills and perspectives, creating an inclusive environment for everyone. We are FARFETCH for All.
We're the customer experts and advocates. Our teams work on the end-to-end product lifecycle; from understanding the motivations and needs of our customers and partners, to designing and testing hypotheses, to creating industry-leading experiences for luxury shoppers, sellers and service providers. We set our Product vision and achieve our strategy in close partnership with teams across the business.
Our London office is located in Old Street, London's tech hub, and is home to a broad range of teams including Commercial, Marketing, and Product. Our open plan space is ideal for collaborative working and sharing ideas, or you can enjoy some quiet time in our dedicated library. We also have a large outdoor terrace which is the perfect spot to have a team lunch or host events.
A unique opportunity join a global product design team who are defining what luxury means for digital. This role is for an experienced designer with a deep knowledge of working within a diverse team (design, engineering and product management). You will have a knowledge of design methods and practices to help your team understand and make sense of their customers' needs and behaviours. You can structure and organise complex models and information and translate it into visual and text artefacts that can be used as references by others to support product development. You have technical knowledge of web, native UI and interaction design to ensure that our information architecture translates into appropriate experiences within our products. As well as shaping and creating products and features with your product team, we want you to use your knowledge to help us systematically develop the capability and expertise across the entire design discipline. FARFETCH looks for designers who want to help raise up and develop those around them, and who can approach work with a clear intent and to reflect afterwards upon the effectiveness.
