Paddy Power, Betfair

We were going to say something profound about putting users first (like everyone else here has!) but we figure if you're reading this you're already into UX and it's pretty much a given that if we sponsored an event we take it seriously too, right? So let's just crack on...

We are looking for a kick-ass Senior UX to join one of the most exciting UX teams in Europe. We have a team of about 30 UX & UI Designers and have offices in four different countries (one of them has an actual slide in the office to get between floors! Why? We have no idea, but we like it!)

We have two testing labs, one in Dublin and one in London and we are constantly testing our work with real customers.

Our CEO likes to reference Dieter Rams so we need to know what we are talking about!

Hopefully you’re talented, fun and interested and want to find out more here. Paddy Power & Betfair jobs
