About Us

Who you’ll be working with
Capgemini UK Digital Experience Design Services are a newly formed team working alongside others within Capgemini. We design, adapt and develop user experiences tailored to customers’ real life, across different interfaces, devices and digital platforms.

Main Purpose Of Role

The focus of your role
We’re looking for a Senior Digital Experience Strategist willing to embark on this exciting new journey and help us shape it. You will work with designers and technologists in a creative environment to develop new product ideas and bring them to market and help our clients deliver the best customer experience, leveraging creative talent and business acumen to enable the team to deliver the best and optimal solution.

Our work requires us to balance user needs with business objectives: the right products for our clients are the ones that meet both. A strategist’s focus leans slightly more towards the business end of the spectrum, and this is reflected in the responsibilities outlined below.

Key Responsibilities

What you’ll do
You’ll be at the forefront of customer experience design. You’ll get to thoroughly understand clients, their business, their customers. You’ll shape the holistic customer journey and understand the interdependencies between all media and touchpoints that create interactions between the brand and the customer and deliver the customer experience.

You’ll think strategically about what the digital customer experience will be and how it will integrate with the physical and the product experience, from awareness, to conversion, purchase and advocacy.

You’ll identify innovative digital customer experience opportunities and work with clients to optimise existing ones, all in response to user, cultural and business insight.

Within the Digital Experience Design project implementation you will:
• Design, develop and commission observational and quantitative research.
• Synthesize quantitative / qualitative findings and develop insights.
• Run ideation workshops.
• Understand the interdependencies across all media from TV to 1-2-1 communication and all touchpoints, mobile, tablets and IoT in order to define the interaction between digital and physical media and touchpoints.
• Develop and design the digital customer journeys and identify the most appropriate touchpoints for each stage of the journey.
• Be able to work in synergy with agencies generating brand content and to advise and provide recommendation about content management for each stage of the journey and across all digital touchpoints.
• Lead / take part in prototyping and user feedback sessions.
• Develop opportunity maps and experience models.
• Build client opportunities and drive sales for a minimum of £500k per year.

You’ll be working in a team with visual and UX designers, digital architects as well as consultants and engineers within the wider Capgemini to develop the right strategies and frameworks that will enable the front end design and development of the digital experience and its integration with technology.

You’ll take responsibility for representing the company, winning new clients and business and the entire process behind this. You’ll seek out and develop relationships with potential clients, articulate and discuss our capabilities, and build and present proposals in consultation with the management team and our design and technology leadership.

Skills and Experience

What you’ll bring
You are fundamentally a strategist, with the ability to stimulate, understand and assess the creative process. You’ll be comfortable working with senior management teams and C-level executives and in dealing with complex systems and processes. You’ll also have familiarity with some aspects of software architecture and development, as well as interaction design, visual identity and industrial design.

You may bring experience working for an established consumer technology brand, in a technology start-up or in venture capital or private equity in the technology sector – but we certainly don’t have any strong preconceptions on this front. What’s more important is that you have a good understanding of the dynamics of business drivers, customer needs and technology opportunities, and that you’re excited by experimentation and uncertainty. Ultimately, you’ll be a key driver of our continued evolution in terms of process, product offering and capabilities, as well as being able to fulfil the roles described above.

You’ll have the following experience and personal attributes:

• You’ll be a confident and capable communicator, equally at home in long-form text or presenting a vivid visual description of a service idea.
• Fluent in product management, project management and marketing concepts and processes – Lean and Agile, product analytics, customer acquisition and retention.
• Vertical experience in retail, media, travel, hospitality, healthcare, banking, government or the third sector might also be useful, client-side or as a consultant.
• Knowledge of direct design and software development is massively beneficial – you’ll spend much of your time working in a team with designers and developers throughout client engagements, and so need to be both comfortable with and capable of contributing to this sort of highly creative, vibrant product-focused environment.

Personal Profile

Personal attributes:
You’ll be passionate in supporting our clients to and design, deliver and optimise their digital user experience in integrated and connected cross channel environments. To be successful you’ll bring energy and passion to your work and a proactive attitude and collaborative style to project delivery. You’ll need to be credible, with the gravitas to engage effectively with C-level / CXOs on a peer to peer basis. Empathetic in nature, you’ll enjoy managing a team, providing direction and helping others to develop. In fact, you’ll thrive in this environment. You’ll demonstrate consulting professionalism and flexibility - you’ll be able to adjust positively to situations that involve changing tasks and/or location, shifting priorities or ambiguity.
