All of us are going to die. It’s a fundamental, tragic, romantic part of what it is to be human. But the services that should be supporting us haven't changed in decades. From writing your will to planning a funeral, the way we deal with death is formal, complicated and expensive. Instead of feeling supported, people feel lost.
But it doesn’t need to be this way. We started Farewill to make the experience warmer, brighter and friendlier.
We’re the UK's biggest will writer, top rated probate provider, and one of the leading funeral companies in the country. We’re backed by top investors who are as excited by our mission as we are, and we’ve won awards for the work we’ve done.
But there’s a lot more to do.
We’re looking for a Lead Product Designer to help us change the way the world deals with death. It’s a big opportunity – the chance to change the lives of millions of people and their families every year.
You'd be integral to determining the direction we take with our products and services. And you’ll help define the relationship we have with the people who need us.
We have 2 product teams and you’ll be leading design across both, so this is a role for a clear communicator, and confident collaborator.
You should be as comfortable rolling up your sleeves to draw on the whiteboard as you are using digital design tools. And as happy to set up your own way of working as you are adopting the best bits of the way we work today.
In terms of how we work, we’re based in London and this is a hybrid role.
Making your application as smooth as possible:
To change the lives of millions of people it’s important we build a diverse team that represents them. Part of that is creating a workplace that celebrates diversity in all its forms, and where everyone is treated fairly, equitably and respectfully.
We believe flexibility is important too, so we’re happy to learn more about how you work best. And, If you need any flexibility or adjustments in our interview process to help set you up for success, please let us know.
We know that some under-represented groups put off applying for roles when they don’t feel like they meet every criteria perfectly. If this sounds like you, please get in touch anyway. Ability and attitude is just as important as experience.
