# Why is home-buying is painful?

When we buy any other commodity, we usually transact with one party. For example, a car is bought from just a car dealer, and you have to only deal with them.

Although home-buyers ***have to*** work with multiple parties — estate agents, mortgage brokers, solicitors, lenders and surveyors, contributing to it widely being accepted as one of the most stressful processes (following closely after divorce!). A contributory factor to consumer stress is the software that these parties use — it is outdated, non-standardised and is not connected.

So poor buyers repeat the same processes with each stakeholder and glue everything together with email, phone, letters, WhatsApp and sometimes fax — adding to their pain…!

At Homey we are rebuilding the software landscape across the home-buying experience to make it a beautiful and delightful experience. See application link for some screens.

We are already profitable and work with 20 of the biggest estate agents/ law firms in UK.

We choose to be in semi-stealth mode as our customers currently come from referrals, and we don’t want incumbents learning from our ideas — the best way to learn about us, is to talk to us.

# Where we need help?

  • Mockup low fidelity designs for co-creation workshops.
  • Produce high-fidelity designs to visually communicate product iterations to the development team.
  • Participate in continually discovering the most optimal digital user journeys for home buyers by learning deeply about our customers.

# What we look for?

  • Significant experience designing beautiful digital products.
  • We want to see what you have designed before.
  • Ability to learn from our customers and stakeholders in our network, to craft digital journeys that delight our users.
  • We want your methodology for producing designs.
  • Desire to be part of a fast-paced dynamic team building a scaling product that will conceivably one day touch the majority of home buyers in the UK.
  • Have a positive attitude that radiates to the team.

# Why us?

  • You will lead product design and have a core impact on the 1500 consumers passing through the platform monthly.
  • Working with a team of small closely knit A+ players. We believe in quality, not quantity.

# What we offer?

We ask you what you like as a salary, and look for a match against your previous results. We have budgeted a range of £70-110k for this role.

We give you the flexibility to decide how much of your salary to take as share options so that you can participate in the upside growth of the company’s value if you wish to. 🙂

This role can be fully remote, but an understanding of the UK home buying process is preferable.

Who we are

We’re re-imagining online drinks retail from the ground up, using cutting edge technology and fanatical customer service to build a company we want to be customers of and create unexpected delight as we help people explore, buy and enjoy high end whisky and other spirits.

In everything we do, we are disruptive innovators; it is baked into our DNA to challenge orthodoxy and received wisdom wherever we find it.

We’ve grown a lot since we were just a few kids in a shed with big dreams, but we haven’t lost our hunger to build something great, and we’re looking for people who have the same passion for making things better to join us on that journey.

In the last 10 years we’ve become the number 1 player in our industry, but we’ve barely gotten started. We’re excited about the future, so if you’d like to come and help us build it, read on!

About the role

You will have the opportunity to make a significant impact on our platforms delivering customer insights where we’ve not had them before. You’ll be able to establish UX processes such as a research repository and work with teams to instil the voice of the customer into our products.

In your first 30 days… you’ll go on a crash course to deeply understand our (very) complex vertically integrated business. You’ll also likely be introduced to some key projects to see how we work together and level-up your understanding on specific Product Groups. You’ll be getting regular check-ins from your team along the way.

In your first 60 days… you’ll start bringing together your new knowledge, making recommendations for how we can approach integrating UX into our process. You’ll be brought into specific projects to help plan and execute the research side of things. You will be supported by designers and other Product team members.

In your first 90 days… you’ll be running your own show, you’ll be leading UX projects, writing user stories and collaborating closely with Project managers. You may also be mentoring other designers who will be collaborating closely with you on UX Research tasks.

Some more about the day to day role;

  • Mostly remote work but it would be great if you could travel to our offices in Tonbridge or Brighton when needed.
  • Varied, interesting work with Product Managers to translate research into deliverable features and user stories
  • Tangible Impact! Go beyond user requirements by understanding what the problem and desired outcomes are
  • Engage your creativity to create and communicate personas and user flows.
  • To build a research repository in Jira, define research scopes and lay the foundations for a strong UX capacity at Atom Group
  • To look out for ways to improve work processes
  • Present summarised findings to stakeholders advocating on behalf of the user
  • Educate, mentor, and exemplify good UX research practices with a flexible, agile mindset
  • To Lead the UX research process for multiple projects
  • Co-design and work collaboratively with cross-discipline teams including other designers, researchers, strategists and developers and other digital disciplines to uncover, define and communicate user needs, pain points, values and behaviours that drive experience opportunities and design

About You:

  • You want to build cutting-edge, respected UX Research function that can do what others can’t.
  • You are highly intelligent, tenacious and motivated. You are utterly intolerant of corporate bullshit and mediocrity.
  • You have a positive can-do attitude, you learn fast, and relish a challenge. You question things and need to understand them on a deep level. You get out of bed each morning excited to get cracking and make things better.
  • You are exceptionally curious and creative – solving hard problems is what gets you out of bed in the morning.
  • You love efficiency and hate waste in all its forms – you relentlessly automate and eliminate repetitive tasks. You are extremely proud of how little manual repetitive work your department does. You build a culture of continuous improvement.

What You’ll need

  • You understand ‘just enough research’
  • You have top-notch presentation skills; you’re an excellent communicator written and verbal
  • Excellent listening and negotiation skills with clients and senior management
  • Experience working in e-commerce is a plus
  • You are flexible, adaptive, observant, and questioning
  • You enjoy working in a fast-paced environment
  • You have a minimum of 8 years of experience as a User Experience designer, at least 4 years of experience performing UX at a senior-level professionally.
  • You have experience organising and implementing usability testing
  • You are a creative and resourceful researcher who has practical experience implementing a number of research methodologies.
  • Experience working across multiple teams and release cycles working closely with design, product management + development to realise experiences using agile project management.

  • You can wireframe/sketch out ideas and collaborate with Product Designers

Why work with us

We’re all about boundless curiosity, so you’ll discover loads of opportunities to spark your creative flair and work along-side unreal talent who all have the same job description, to ‘Make Atom Successful.’ Trust is at the epicentre of all that we can do, so you’ll work in a transparent and honest environment where we have each other’s backs, and be free of ageing corporate policies and rules.

Life here’s about so much more than pay and benefits – you might get a slightly higher salary if you cram onto an expensive, crowded commuter train into the city, but you’ll struggle to find a company with the flex, agility and unique-ness that we have. In short, we’ve got you covered financially but if money is your main driver, we’re not for you.

We hate waste in all of it’s forms and time is no different, so we’re focused on productivity and output rather than when or where you work, or what you wear into the office – you can come in fancy dress for all we care! This means that although we can’t promise anything, flexible working options are built into our DNA.

Along with the stuff you get for turning up to work each day (think private healthcare scheme, unlimited annual leave, pension, cycle-2-work, eye care, enhanced maternity & paternity leave, free food, drinks and parking at the office), you’ll also get a healthy staff discount on our world-class range (just in case that makes a difference).

We don’t sit still, and there’s a lot more to come… Apply now if you want to join us.

  • A good understanding of the Digital landscape.
  • Proficiency in the usual software suspects (Figma, Sketch, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign).

  • A curious mind that enables you to self-learn about latest design trends, tools and techniques.
  • Display strong leadership, organisational and collaborative skills.
  • Finally, an eye for detail is a must.

  • Communication — You’ll be able to convey your needs clearly to engineering, help reduce ambiguity, and take pride in your written specifications

  • Sensitivity to others — You are polite and considerate to clients and colleagues and understand that we’re all working toward the same goal

  • Team Lunches — When we’re in the office we order food for the whole team 1 – 2 times a week. It’s the one day, nobody has to think about lunch but it’s when we all come together to not only share the food but to catch up and have fun!

A couple of things before we get to the juicier stuff…

Please, please only apply for this job if:

1. You are UK based (no, really)
2. You hold a solid design degree, or equivalent (but that doesn’t mean a D at GCSE Art and a scrap book of drawings of your cat in superhero outfits)
3. You have 2+ years industry experience as an absolute minimum (no max!)

If you don’t meet the above, and you do apply. Expect tumbleweed. We’re not mad… we’re just disappointed. Sorry, but there you go.

Please feel free to apply for this job if you:

a. Give a big yes to all of the above
b. Are looking for full-time, part-time or flexible work (anything potentially goes)
c. Are perhaps a freelancer looking for something more solid
d. Are sick of overtime (we like our staff to have a life outside of work – crazy I know).

Us:

We’re Warm. Hi.

We are a small, busy, down-to-earth graphic design studio, with some surprisingly cool clients and a cracking portfolio to boot. Typically, day-to-day studio work involves packaging, branding, concept development for campaigns, design for print and a few other bits and bobs.

We currently work remotely but are based in the East Mids (Newark on Trent, Notts). We’ll go back to an actual studio / office at some point and when we do (no plans at present) it’ll likely be there – maybe you’ll be there, maybe you’ll be there some days… maybe we’ll never meet and you’ll be some kind of magical virtual designer who just pops up on Zoom calls and pings files around… who knows? It really doesn’t matter!

We’re looking for a Graphic Designer to help us to service existing accounts, and support future development.

We work in a few different sectors, but the last couple of years have seen us focus on health food, food brands and restaurant brands – these are areas that brings fantastic opportunities for genuinely creative, playful design work as well as the bread and butter stuff that keeps the lights on. We’re doing more and more packaging and labelling work in the FMCG sector, and that’s something we see developing further.

As a big part of small Co. you’ll have the opportunity to really put your stamp on things and play a key role moving forward. You’ll always be busy, but you’ll enjoy and appreciate working for a relaxed company that punches firmly above it’s weight.

More about you:

You’ll have a few years under your belt in the industry – perhaps you’re highly experienced and bored to tears? Years served are not as important as skill, portfolio, and attitude.

Whatever stage of your career you’re at, to be successful, you’ll need a strong portfolio that demonstrates high quality output across some or all of the the areas mentioned. Your work will be a mix of fantastically executed graphic design across different media, and conceptual creative thinking. In addition, you’ll know who your favourite brands are, what they’re doing and why you like it. You’ll be interested in the way progressive and ambitious companies are communicating, and why they are doing it. You’ll know what agencies you admire and why.

These things are a must:

  • Exceptional knowledge of Indesign / Illustrator / Photoshop
  • The ability to self manage (you will work with a studio manager, but not micro-managed)
  • The ability to be agile – always (always) juggling multiple projects
  • Be fast, efficient and relatively organised (for a Designer!)
  • Great typography
  • Used to doing your own art-working on the print side
  • Solid attention to detail
  • A strong work ethic, and a can-do ‘tude
  • A genuine interest in design and cultural trends
  • Impressive references that are not written by your Mum.

These are not essential, but would mean brownie points:

  • Motion Graphics experience
  • Illustration skills

Please email your CV and PDF portfolio, or portfolio web-link through to info[at]warmdesign.co.uk

You can see some of our stuff at wearewarm.com (yes, it needs updating).

Proficient knowledge of photo editing and image creation in Photoshop is a bonus. A lot of our work involves ‘key-art’ creation for film and television.

You won’t mind getting involved and producing all the ‘bread and butter’ work we have to do. You will also be able to juggle projects and work under pressure to tight deadlines. Being sociable, with a good sense of humour, will be a definite advantage!

Desired Skills and Experience:

About us:

We’re a video production agency that prides itself on taking brands places they didn’t know they could go. We’ve produced commercials, video content and animations for the likes of Nestle, Unilever, Fender, Manchester Utd, GQ, Samaritans and many more – and this year we took home 4 x The Drum awards for our Heinz Christmas ad (inc the Grand Prix!)

For our agency’s next stage of creative growth, we’re looking for a kick-ass director/producer to be a leading voice in the creation of our future commercials and branded content, taking our clients and portfolio to another level.

Typically our productions are based all over the UK and at times international, so willingness to travel is a must. Outside of shoots we have a hybrid working policy, where you’ll be expected to work 2-3 days a week from our comfy central Brighton HQ to collaborate with your teammates as well as WFH with flexi-hours. We also operate a 4-day work week bi-weekly to recharge and reset.

You will work closely with our Creative Director and post-production team to lead the projects we bring to life at Gusto as our in-house director/producer. This will be a hybrid and varied role that leans more on the directing side but also includes producing roles depending on the nature of the project. You’ll be responsible for managing projects from brief through to delivery, including creative development, ideation and scripting, talent & contributor casting, directing on set and being a leading voice in post-production. Shooting and editing skills are most definitely an advantage but not essential.

When you’re not working on client projects you’ll be experimenting and building our spec portfolio in new and exciting directions utilising our extensive selection of in-house kit to its fullest potential. So our new colleague needs to have an innovative and entrepreneurial spirit who’s self-motivated and able to motivate and energise those around them. You do it with gusto!

You will be expected to have a proven track record in this role with 4+ years of directing experience in commercial film production and high-end branded content. This is not an entry-level position.

Responsibilities will vary from project to project depending on size and scope but can include:

  • Turning client briefs into compelling concepts through written proposals, treatments, scripts and storyboards
  • Creating new and exciting concepts and techniques to take clients places they didn’t know they could go
  • Producing budgets and schedules and ensuring that all productions are completed on time and within budget
  • Communicating and coordinating with clients and internal/external team members and crew throughout production – building positive, productive and professional relationships
  • Driving our productions on set and in post with narrative and visual finesse
  • Helping execute company strategy and creative goals via your creative approach
  • Continuing to build our black book of contacts across clients and freelancers

Requirements:

  • Must have 4+ years experience directing commercial film productions and high-end branded content with both agencies and brands
  • Being a creative at heart with an obsession for the moving image
  • Superior creative skills and an advanced sense of storytelling and aesthetic taste
  • Ability to articulate your creative vision vividly with both excellent written and communication skills
  • Fluency in the language of advertising and film, and being an interpreter and decision-maker between all stakeholders.
  • Great attitude, calm and collected in a fast-paced environment; helpful, friendly and diplomatic

We have an exciting opening for a Junior Project Manager to join our team full-time in London. 2023 is shaping up to be a growth year for monopo london so we are looking for a diligent, collaborative and creative junior project manager to join our team. You will be working directly with producers on live projects as well as directly with the management team on supporting monopo’s growth, operations and outreach. Get in touch if you are excited about playing an active role in the growth of our global creative community.

We are a Tokyo-born independent creative agency and have set up our London office in March 2019. As a design-driven creative agency, we are passionate about unlocking the true personality of brands. Help them be more expressive. Help them own their quirks rather than blend into the sea of sameness. Be that through Branding, Web design, Communications or anything in between. In our quest to express a brand’s true character, we push the boundaries of channels, styles and techniques and look for curious, self-driven creatives that embrace a variety of perspectives.

This position is for a full-time, in-house role at our London office, with a start date ideally in February 2023. Most of your time will be spent on London projects but we frequently work in collaboration with our Tokyo office as well.

Your responsibilities:

The successful candidate will be joining a small team of producers while also bringing a proactive approach to the table.

  • Supporting the producers in ensuring ambitious projects are delivered on time and on budget. Creating timelines and budget estimates.
  • Establishing, building and maintaining external collaborator relationships (e.g. freelancers and production agencies) and liaising with them to help turn concepts into reality.
  • Coordinating teams internally to ensure projects are progressing efficiently and the team is fully enabled to do great creative work.
  • Supporting the management team in the everyday operations and growth of the studio.

Project Managers at monopo:

  • Have a passion for creative work that looks unlike anything else
  • Are excited about solving problems they haven’t faced before
  • Embrace the opportunity to make something new in an entirely new way
  • Enjoy collaboration and have a habit of bringing people together
  • Have a solutions-oriented mindset and a keen eye for detail
  • Approach whatever comes their way with resilience in a hands-on and organised manner
  • Are curious by nature, eager to learn something new everyday

You’re the perfect fit if you:

  • Can display an understanding of the creative process and the role of a project manager within it. Project Management experience within a branding/digital/creative agency is preferred, but we are open to hearing how an alternative experience has given you the transferable skills to make you an appropriate candidate for a role at monopo.
  • Are comfortable working across several projects and have the ability to prioritise conflicting tasks
  • Are confident in creating project schedules, planning and booking resources, and tracking assets from and to clients
  • Are a natural and kind internal communicator, able to inspire the team through clarity and optimism
  • Share our passion for creative work that goes beyond the norm, challenging the limitations of the project to create new and unexpected outputs
  • Love in-person collaboration. We work 4 days a week at the studio + 1 day a week flexibly. We sadly can’t accept remote applications for this role.
  • Have a valid UK work visa

As a small team, it’s all about finding the right people who make our team unique rather than fitting a very specific job description. If the job description doesn’t fully align but you have strong interest in joining our team, please reach out and we are curious to hear from you.

Our Values:

Kind – Imaginative – Respectful – Curious – Experimental

We will offer you:

  • A diverse and stimulating environment. We’re a growing team of 8 in London and 30 in Tokyo. You will join an experienced team hungry to make work we can be proud of together.
  • A rich variety of international brands and projects. From fashion to sports, science to tea, Japan to London, digital to branding, our projects cover a wide variety of categories, challenges and markets.
  • A competitive salary based on your experience. We are looking for a junior project manager and will adapt the salary based on your level of experience.
  • The opportunity to grow based on your own interests and ambitions. If there’s something you want to try or learn, we will find a way to help you do that.

How to Apply: 

If this sounds like you, please reach out via contact@monopo.london, including your portfolio and CV. Interviews will happen throughout January, with an intended start date for February 2023.

Hello, we’re Farewill and we’re out to change the way the world deals with death.

All of us are going to die. It’s a fundamental, tragic, romantic part of what it is to be human – but the industry that sits on top of it isn’t designed to help us make the most of it. We challenge this status quo by building great product experiences that make dealing with death simpler, more personal, fairly-priced & accessible to everyone.

We believe that by equipping people to navigate some of life’s hardest moments, we bring families together, help individuals face up to the fact that they’re going to die, and make life, while it lasts, more meaningful.
