UI/UX Designer

About us

Podium was formed in 2018 as a joint venture with MoneySuperMarket, the largest price comparison site in the UK. The vision was clear – to digitise and ultimately improve the mortgage experience for consumers shopping online.  

To that end, we are working with the UK’s largest lenders and mortgage intermediaries to develop capabilities that enable consumers to complete their mortgage through MoneySuperMarket. We believe that customer focus is critical – and so our aim is to make the process as smooth and informative as possible, empowering the customer to make their own choices about what is best for them.

We are already well on our way – having launched integrated journeys with multiple ‘big 6’ mortgage lenders that allow customers to pre-qualify themselves on MoneySuperMarket via a hosted Decision in Principle. We are now excited to grow the team, and challenge ourselves to achieve more and more.

We want you to help!  

With the customer at the heart of everything we do, getting our user experience right is absolutely critical. We are looking for a talented UX/UI Designer to lead the design of our cutting edge mortgage journeys, and take our existing ones to the next level. In role, you’ll have a decisive influence on all aspects of the MoneySuperMarket mortgage interface. We’re looking for someone who can bring fresh ideas into the mix, and who can use their experience to aid product definition. You’ll be a good communicator, both internally and with clients, and not afraid to challenge us where necessary!
