    • Telling powerful stories across the business to drive confidence and conviction around Trainlines’ European growth plan.
    • Staying on top of consumer and market trends to amplify Trainline's strategic and competitive edge
    • Maintaining and evolving Trainline’s design system, in collaboration with our Engineers, to ensure the UI is consistently implemented across our portfolio of products


    • Minimum of 6 years commercial design experience
    • Outstanding communication and storytelling, communicating concepts and ideas to stakeholders at all levels, in different shapes depending on the context
    • Deep understanding of the UX process and the role of design values + principles within a small team
    • A passion for the speed that comes with working in an innovative, tech-led environment.
    • The confidence and willingness to challenge the status quo and blaze new trails with your team
    • Taking broad challenge spaces and working through a robust process to deliver high quality, customer-centric design artifacts

    We’d especially like to hear from you if:

    • You have experience working in the travel or urban mobility space
    • You have experience of designing for the product development life cycle
    • You have experience with designing to improve awareness + activation
