About Criton

It is an exciting time to work for Criton as we work towards delivering our new guest centric apps to hotels. These apps provide guests with information about the hotel and local attractions and aggregate traditionally isolated hotel technology to streamline the guest journey before, during and after stay. As a business we’re aiming to massively influence the impact guest facing technology can have within the hospitality sector, across the globe. We are always keen to hear from capable, creative individuals who want to help us accomplish that goal. 

Work Environment

Our team come from a variety of diverse backgrounds. We have several non-graduates; only some of us studied Computer Science; some of the team are graduates of Codeclan; some of us have worked in huge companies; some have only ever worked in start-ups; others are former consultants. If you enjoy learning new things, we’d love to talk to you. We encourage an open and transparent working environment.

Role & Responsibilities

We are looking for an enthusiastic, Senior UX/UI Designer to work within our Product Delivery team who will lead the design of these new apps and accompanying back office systems and who will work closely with our Product Owners to deliver the best possible value to our customers and end-users.

There are many interesting challenges ahead, and as part of the Product delivery team you’re able to work directly with anyone across the company. We run regular sessions with all the teams, presentations and demos to ensure everyone is well informed. You’ll get the chance to learn about everything from how hotels work to effective communication. The team adhere to Agile methodologies and participate in Scrum ceremonies.
