  • Contribute to the professional and personal growth of your peers.
  • Play an active role in London’s design and technology communities.

You need to:

  • Be able to translate complex problems into value-adding concepts, product and services.

  • Challenge your own bias and get beyond it.

Signs that you might be a good fit:

  • Flexible in approach and able to turn your hand to a range of different design problems.
  • A strategic thinker and creative problem solver, able to inspire peers and clients alike.
  • A strong collaborator used to working in cross-functional teams.
  • A life-long learner, curious and empathetic by nature.
  • A strong facilitator, communicator and presenter, with good storytelling ability.

We want you to love your job, and we will do our best to make sure you do.

What we can offer you:

  • An enthusiastic team of colleagues who are helpful and cooperative.
  • A flexible working environment with short decision paths and low hierarchies.
  • Exciting projects with renowned clients.
  • Opportunities to work abroad with Germany, Finland or Stockholm or to FutuHike for a week in a different office.
  • An active role in shaping the vision of our London office and the role of design within it.

Our promise to you:

  • You'll be joining a company that has a strong and ambitious vision.
  • We believe in equality and actively work towards equality for all.
  • Trust in each other, alongside the power for you to make decisions.
  • Openness and transparency

We believe in collaboration, continuous learning, the challenge of a complex project, and impactful solutions. We offer you a great workplace with awesome colleagues and interesting projects.
