Kagool are growing. Why? Because we love what we do, clients like working with us and the chances are so will you.

  • Experience working as part of a multi-disciplined team from concept to execution.

  • Experience presenting and communicating ideas to teams and clients.

  • Experience working with user needs, requirements, and personas, user journey maps.
  • Experience conducting user and data driven research.
  • The ability to work alone and as part of a larger team – we run a sprint approach to design so you’ll need to design against user stories, clearly communicate with team members, and collaborate to reach the best outcome.
  • Confidence to challenge colleagues and clients with research to drive an improved outcome.
  • Experience conducting usability audits and recommendations for presentation.
  • A strong ability to plan and manage deliverables in line with challenging timescales.

  • Excellent written, organisational, and logical skills.
  • In-depth understanding of interactive design, capabilities of web browsers, and an understanding of design reliant technology.
  • Knowledge of motion design, as well as visual/interactive/motion design trends (this is about awareness of motion and how it impacts UX, and the presentation of UI).

Meet Lee, a support desk analyst. He's written some lovely words about his role at Kagool and how he works with clients to keep their business running smoothly.

Who’s Kagool?

We’re a team of 65 individuals (and counting!) who have a few things in common – a love of tech, an eye for design and a whole lot of pride. We’re a bright, vibrant, passionate bunch. We love to learn and we’re encouraged to do so. Every individual who joins our business has their very own development programme, which includes becoming Sitecore certified within the first six months of joining.

Sharing knowledge, the odd joke and even our problems is the key to our success. And when we’ve earnt that success, we celebrate! Whether that’s a team pub lunch, a Beer and Doughnuts party or a canoeing trip down the River Wye.

We work in a fun, fast paced environment, taking an agile approach to all projects. The majority of our work is delivered within three to six-month cycles, meaning you’ll always have the opportunity to work on new and exciting tasks. By using the latest technology and headless architectures, our developers can be creative with the right technology for the right job. We pride ourselves on delivering high quality solutions and, in order to be on top of our game, we know how important a good work-life balance is. As an eclectic mix of individuals, we like everything from walking, surfing, gaming and cycling, to banjo playing and flying gliders. Which definitely keeps after-work-drinks conversations interesting.
