User Experience Architect (IA)
We design the BBC’s amazing digital experiences, from apps to websites, from BBC News to CBeebies. And we design the ‘behind the scenes’ employee experiences to help make these happen.
In UX&D you’ll get to shape the tools that help people across the BBC unleash their full creative potential. Working together with users and colleagues, you’ll take a holistic, human-centred approach to help create a BBC that’s truly fit for the Internet age.
As a User Experience Architect you’ll work alongside designers, UX architects and design researchers in the Systems + Service Design UX team to give employees and partners the best possible experiences. That could mean working on enterprise scale finance or IT systems to Publishing systems that let journalists and producers create and publish content online, or Production systems for News, Radio and TV broadcasting.
You’ll also be joining our information architecture specialists within UX&D who are committed to making BBC content, experiences and tools more meaningful and connected. We don’t just care about the information – our priority is always the user and their experience.
Human-centred design approaches are a fundamental part of how we work. In this role you’ll be applying them in a pragmatic, problem-solving environment. You’ll work closely with those across the BBC who use the systems you create, getting under the skin of the future of content production and ways of working.
As a member of BBC UX&D, you’ll join over 100 user experience professionals across the UK with a global audience, a range of thrilling challenges, and great learning and development opportunities.
