Are you an aspiring UX/UI Designer looking for the next big challenge? Are you ready to push the boundaries and help accelerate Goodwood’s digital growth?
Goodwood’s mission is simple, we want to be the home of exceptional experiences. We’re inspired by our heritage and are continuously striving to do things even better.
Based at The Goodwood Motor Circuit and surrounded by endless inspiration across our 12,000-acre Estate, we’re driven by a commitment to create digital experiences as extraordinary as our calendar of world-leading events. We believe in being highly engaged and collaborative in everything we do.
As part of this commitment, we’re embarking on an exciting new project to redesign Goodwood.com and bring our brand to life online. Most of your work will be researching, designing and prototyping - testing components, templates and user flows for our websites and apps. You’ll be creating exceptional experiences for our customers and fans across the entire spectrum of the business, from the digital platforms that elevate our legendary motorsport events through to memberships, retail and experiences that Goodwood delivers all year round.
The candidate we’re looking for is smart, driven, and passionate about design and technology. You know that UX/UI design is a critical element of any successful product, and you want to use your skills to craft beautiful, frictionless experiences that delight our customers. You’ll have an eagle eye for detail and an ability to turn complex problems into simple solutions. You understand that good design is not just about making things pretty—it's about making them work better for people.
