Bridging the gap between great digital products and real human users is just one of your many passions. That's what makes you so unique. And it's UX Designers like you, whose mark has already been made in the tech sector, that makes Sage the transformative business it is today.

You'll work with a small team of experienced developers tasked with imagining better user experiences and making them a reality. There's no toe-dipping here. You'll be collaborating on UX projects that you'll from the very beginning, shaping the direction throughout the process, and making life better for Sage users. And we're talking hundreds of thousands of users across seven countries.

Issued with a MacBook Pro and a digital 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.

Your 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.
