FARFETCH exists for the love of fashion. Our mission is to be the global technology platform for luxury fashion, connecting creators, curators, and consumers.


We're the customer experts and advocates. Our teams work on the end-to-end product lifecycle; from understanding the motivations and needs of our customers and partners to designing and testing hypotheses, to creating industry-leading experiences for luxury shoppers, sellers, and service providers. We set our Product vision and achieve our strategy in close partnership with teams across the business.


We're looking for a Design Lead to join our Platform Product Design team. We want a leader and enabler who will help develop the product strategy for their team and fine-tune their design approach.

The Platform Product Design team creates the experiences that help our business users leverage the power of the FARFETCH platform.

We explore user needs and champion them throughout the product design process, producing apps that enable them to make an impact.

As part of a global team, we're shaping the digital experience of the fashion industry by pushing the boundaries of what's technologically possible and applying revolutionary thinking to everything we do.
