Assistant UX Manager (UX Developer)
Welcome to the Boots.com team – an exciting team within Boots UK which is at the heart of our growth plans as more customers look to us for online help, advice and shopping inspiration, as well as of course the best Boots products, prices and offers. This UX developer role sits within our Optimisation Team, where we focus on using data-driven methods, innovative ways of thinking and AB testing to deliver better experiences for our customers and drive business growth.

As customers are changing, so are we: focusing on really understanding our customers’ needs and making the most of our great products and services to optimise the online shopping experience and drive growth.

About the opportunity
As a UX developer, you’ll build quick-to-market AB tests and experiment solutions that drive innovation on Boots.com. You’ll create beautiful experiences for our customers that rethink how a website should look, feel and act, and which have creativity at their core. What’s more, you’ll do this as part of a team. Applying your knowledge and expertise to help analysts, researchers and optimisation specialists transform customer insights and trends into live, on-site experiments. Together, this team will be responsible for generating significant value for both Boots and customer.

• Take a high volume of test designs and concepts and develop them within Adobe Target, ready to be published live on site
• Apply your knowledge and creativity to generate innovative solutions to customer and business problems
• Develop processes and ways of working, adhering to best practice where possible to minimise defects in production
• Act as technical point of contact for the wider UX teams, offering guidance on how ideas can be translated into quick-to-market experimentation solutions
• Work with third-party suppliers in the onboarding and testing of their platforms on Boots.com, acting as technical lead on trial projects
• Become an expert within the field, ensuring that the Optimisation team continue to push boundaries with brand new, innovative concepts that can be built, tested and delivered
• Have a performance based approach to your code, knowing when to utilise libraries and advanced CSS / animations to deliver a better user experience vs. the impact this could have on site speed. But always ensuring that you're bringing to life ideas and wireframes in the best way possible

About you

• Exceptional skills across HTML, Javascript and CSS3
• Ability to solve problems through code and visual design skills

• Proactive, investigative mindset with an enthusiasm for experimentation and innovation
