Are you a passionate and dedicated Digital / UI Designer, inspired to work in a digital product consultancy that works with some of the most exciting, market-leading companies across the globe? Our client may be based in Oxfordshire, but their clients are global with budgets to do some great work. This permanent, full-time role comes with a salary of £40- £50k depending on experience and knowledge, and a hybrid working arrangement of 3 days in office and 2 days from home.

The Company

They are a Digital Product Agency based just north-west of Oxford. They work with some of the most exciting, market-leading companies across the globe (think e-sports, pharma, FMCG) to deliver digital solutions. They've created everything from virtual event experiences for some of the biggest brands in sport, to headless digital publishing platforms, enabling household retailers to tell their story across multiple products.

They believe in working hard to create stuff they're proud of to grow the business. They have a small and passionate team, always looking for something new to get their heads around, whether it's about their own brand or website or a project they're doing for a client. If you want to do some cool stuff, it doesn't get much better!

They have six laws that apply to every project they deliver. Their laws are their process, the rhythm behind their work, which connects the dots between strategy, design, development, and everything in between. They take huge pride in the work they deliver - and cutting corners is a big no.

Their focus is on quality and getting the most out of themselves is a big trait in the team.
