Why work with us
Boson Protocol is advancing the world of commerce by enabling enterprises, organisations, and customers to bridge the divide between digital decentralized technologies and the transfer and trade of physical goods.
Our vision is for Boson to become the basic plumbing for dCommerce and its data on the emerging decentralized web, where the value captured is distributed equitably between token holders and protected from capture by a single centralized entity. Read more about us here: https://bosonprotocol.io/
If you are passionate about revolutionizing the way commerce works by bridging the gap between blockchain technology and real world asset transfers, we hope you apply to join us!
We are looking for an experienced User Experience designer who knows first hand the limitations of being a pioneer within the Web3 and DeFi space. We see a future of dCommerce where people can exchange value safely, fairly and there is a bridge between the metaverse and the universe. In order to achieve this, we realise we need to serve our users and partners in a way that is ever better than the status quo.
Cryptocurrency and DeFi is still in its infancy, while ecommerce has been around for decades, so there is some catching up to do. If we are to build a new way of doing commerce, we need our users to realise the wider benefits of this but also to have a seamless experience that is both intuitive and pleasant for all parties.
Simply applying Web2 principles to DeFi isn’t good enough, there are too many nuances for it to be that easy. You could argue that many eCommerce and traditional finance organisations are yet to grasp this properly, and we need to be a step ahead of them. This is where you come in.
Working across multiple work streams and projects you will be guiding and user first mindset on our product suite, from an end user perspective but also in terms of retailer and developer experience.

We’re looking for a Senior UX Designer to join Manyone in London.
[Please note: due to current restrictions, the position will be fully remote until further notice]
At Manyone, we’re building a hybrid strategic design consultancy, where we apply the principles of design to innovation through a cross-disciplinary merging of creativity, business strategy, and technological transformation.
To help us grow, we’re looking for a Senior UX Designer to strengthen our team and our ability to deliver products, designs and meaningful strategic solutions to our clients.
Being a Senior User Experience Designer
As a Senior User Experience Designer you’ll be working across digital products and services for our clients. But your work won’t only be digital. Although most of our projects have a digital or technological component to them, you'll also work across other products and services.
You’ll be researching qual and quant insights and data, with a view to translating it into actionable insights that set the strategic direction for our projects.
You can conceive and create innovative, user-centered strategies and digital service experiences that connect people and businesses with measurable impacts.
You can generate transformational value through design by looking at the whole service to unearth market, people and technology insights to either improve existing services or envision new service propositions for global organisations to start ups.
You keep abreast with latest industry developments, technical innovation and digital best practise that deliver ground breaking and future proof concepts.
You’re someone who is articulate and comfortable when speaking to new and established clients on a professional level: from being part of discussing new projects to facilitating workshops, communicating insights on user journeys, ‘getting your hands dirty’ building functional prototypes, visualising service experiences, and beyond.
In short, you’ll be using your creativity and expertise to solve complex problems and to create meaningful concepts for a fast-paced, changing world.
You’ll work with some of the best people in the business, and you’ll always have solid back-up from all of the other Manyones. We take good care of each other, and you’ll get to play with the most helpful and coolest new friends from all around the world.
Your experience ranges from user-focused processes and strategic service concepts to building concrete solutions for digital products and services.
You know how to challenge clients and structure complex concepts because you have worked in the field of user experience design for several years.
You have a good understanding and some experience in service design and related methodologies. You preferably already have experience from inside a consultancy and also from collaborating with other design disciplines in creating state of the art products and services.
Our organisational model emphasises adaptiveness when setting the right team for a project. So we’re also looking for a person that easily adapts to working in dynamic and changing teams on a project to project basis.
