PhysicsX is a deep-tech company of scientists and engineers, developing machine learning applications to massively accelerate physics simulations and enable a new frontier of optimisation opportunities in design, engineering, and systems control.
We help our customers fundamentally improve their concepts and designs, transform their engineering processes and drive operational product performance. We do this in some of the most advanced and important industries of our time – including Renewables & Sustainability, Space, Aerospace, Medical Devices, Additive Manufacturing and Energy. Our work creates positive impact for society, be it by improving the design of artificial hearts, reducing CO2 emissions from aircraft and road vehicles, or increasing the performance of wind turbines.
We are a rapidly growing company but prefer to fly under the radar to protect our customers’ confidentiality. We are about to take the next leap in building out our technology platform and product offering. In this context, we are looking for capable and enthusiastic Product Designers to join our team. If all of this sounds exciting to you, we would love to talk (even if you don't tick all the boxes).
Job Description
We are seeking a talented UX Engineer to join our growing design team. In this role, you will collaborate closely with our simulation engineers, data scientists, and customers to gain a deep understanding of the challenges we are addressing. As part of the design team, you will be instrumental in developing solutions that enhance the user experience for our Python-based frameworks and technical-based experiences.

What you will do

  • Collaborate with simulation engineers, data scientists, and customers to understand complex user pain-points and needs as we develop our Product.
  • Support the development of AI and ML solutions for mechanical engineering applications.
  • Translate complex concepts into intuitive and compelling developer experiences.
  • Support our product engineers in creating user-friendly coding interfaces for Python-based frameworks.
  • Design for developer-focused users in enterprise contexts, ensuring an intuitive and seamless user experience.
  • Stay up-to-date with the latest UX trends and technologies to drive continuous improvement.

What the ideal candidate looks like

  • 2-3 years of experience in UX design, preferably in a technical or enterprise context.
  • Strong understanding of the developer workflow and experience designing for developer tools such as command-line interfaces
  • Proficiency in design and prototyping tools such as Figma, Sketch, Miro, FigJam, Click or equivalent
  • Excellent problem-solving skills and creative thinking abilities.
  • Strong communication and collaboration skills.
  • Experience designing for expert users (e.g., Data Scientists, Machine Learning Engineers) in enterprise situations is a plus.
  • Experience in data science/machine learning including Jupyter Notebooks is a plus
  • Experience in any programming language such as Python, C or Arduino is a plus

What we offer

  • Be part of something larger: Make an impact and meaningfully shape an early-stage company. Work on some of the most exciting and important topics there are. Do something you can be proud of
  • Work with a fun group of colleagues that support you, challenge you and help you grow. We come from many different backgrounds, but what we have in common is the desire to operate at the very top of our fields and solve truly challenging problems in science and engineering. If you are similarly capable, caring and driven, you'll find yourself at home here
  • Experience a truly flat hierarchy. Voicing your ideas is not only welcome but encouraged, especially when they challenge the status quo
  • Work sustainably, striking the right balance between work and personal life.
  • Receive a competitive compensation and equity package, in addition to plenty of perks such as generous vacation and parental leave, complimentary office food, as well as fun outings and events
  • Work in a flexible setting, with your choice of either our lovely London Shoreditch or Bicester Heritage offices to collaborate in, and a good proportion from home if so desired. Get the opportunity to occasionally visit our customers' engineering sites and experience first-hand how our work is transforming their ways of working
  • Use first-class equipment for working in-office or remotely, including in-house HPC and GPU stack
We value diversity and are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of sex, race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, disability, age, sexual orientation or gender identity. We strongly encourage individuals from groups traditionally underrepresented in tech to apply. To help make a change, we sponsor bright women from disadvantaged backgrounds through their university degrees in science and mathematics.
