At bp, we're striving to meet the growing global demand for safe, sustainable, and affordable energy. A career in digital design is an opportunity to grow and deliver innovation at pace while shaping the future of bp.

Our bphxd (Human Experience Design) team is passionate about designing for a digital and sustainable future and putting humans at the heart of design. As part of the team, you’ll be transforming bp to a more efficient business that makes the best possible use of all its resources in pursuit of our net zero ambition. You’ll also help to develop new businesses, products, and services, delivering progressive projects and growing your talent in all kinds of new and exciting ways within the digital heart of bp.

We are looking for a Senior Design Engineer to join our fast-growing HXD team to support them in building outstanding user experiences. We’re seeking a results-oriented individual who can help shape our design teams, and processes, ensuring that designers have the right tools and technology at their fingertips to build awesome experiences.

We have a great opportunity for a Senior Design Engineer who have an eye for clean design, a detailed and structured approach to your work, and are an advocate for user centered design. We are seeking a design engineer to contribute to crafting the design culture and process and collaborate on big and meaningful design challenges. Join a dynamic, diverse, and hard-working team that will shape the future of bp and our world!

As a Design Engineer, you will identify potential tools, systems, and platforms for design teams to use at bp to operationalize and bring efficiency to design activities. You will act as a specialist on digital delivery mediums and upskill others on best practices for that medium, whilst guiding teams and mentor colleagues on how to facilitate good, clean design. This role will ensure the appropriate UX and visual design process and outcomes are integrated throughout the development and lifecycle of the product/service. Additionally, this person will anticipate and engage with the design trends, emerging tools, and technology to communicate their value to the wider team and use them to inform designs.

As a design engineer, you’re accountable for

  • Scale design systems and pattern libraries.
  • Contribute design patterns that can be applied across products
  • Continually assess the products and tools being designed, identifying ways we can improve them
  • Identify workflow techniques that drive efficiencies, reduce repetitive actions, and encourage cost saving.
  • Help build and enable the governance and contribution model of a design
  • Stay up to date with accessibility compliance and requirements and drive implementation within designs
  • Understand the array of technical constraints, user goals and business requirements that shape a product
  • Recognize the cultural aspects of UI design (e.g., how color is perceived in various parts of the world), and apply this to visual design strategies for products/services

About you
You will have a degree in Human Computer Interaction, Product Design, or Computer Science or equivalent experience. Experience is what matters most. The successful candidate should have experience working in a Design Engineer or Design Technologist capacity with an in-house design team or design agency. Experience of supporting a design team in a development capacity is also vital to the role.

It’s also important that you have:
  • Knowledge of Agile or Lean UX or product methodologies and experience working in a collaborative, agile environment is a plus
  • Experience working in a complex business environment supporting projects working at pace
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
