About the work

Early market engagement
Who the specialist will work with
The designer will primarily work within the Marine Information Transformation (MINT) programme who are working with leading edge big data technologies such as Hadoop, Nifi, Spark and Hive. The team is building a data reservoir to store, manage and refine data received from sources around the globe. The system will be used by subject matter experts in the UKHO but they are not experts in the technology and so in order that we gain true benefits from the system we need interaction to be intuitive, flexible and predominantly self-service.
What the specialist will work on
Firstly, work with 2 agile development teams and user researchers to deliver new and improve existing user experiences, interactions and visual design, working through entire project lifecycle from initial idea generation, site maps, sketches, storyboards, process flows, user flows and wireframes to deliver visually rich, simple and easy-to-use experiences. Secondly, work with the Head of Technology Production Engineering to guide the UKHO UI/UX strategy within an agile environment in terms of best practices, lessons learnt, job descriptions and team integration.
