Join the Surfboard team! We’re creating an exciting new platform to enable customer service teams to hit their service targets whilst improving morale within their team. We’re building an end-to-end solution that centralises data, makes forecasts, schedules agents fairly and provides them with tools to put development and training at the forefront of their experience. Our mission is simple: happy team, happy customers. Surfboard is backed by some of Europe’s leading venture capital funds and a set of stellar angel investors who have founded and scaled some of Europe’s most successful technology businesses.

YOUR ROLE

❤️ Own the entire design of Surfboard’s products including our agent and manager dashboard, from initial research through to the look and feel of the user interface.
🥇 Advocate for a great user experience in everything we do, designing an end-to-end experience that our early customers love
⛹️ Be a core member of our early team, helping to shape the future of Surfboard and how we do design, alongside teammates in product, engineering and data science. This involves guiding design & product reviews and iterating how we interact with customers to user test.
💬 Regularly conduct research to understand the needs and behaviours of the different personas our product interacts with: customer service agents, team leads, and C-suite.
📺 Contribute to brand design and product marketing, including our website and marketing materials.

ABOUT YOU

👍  We’d love to hear from you if you:

  • You think about the design beyond the user interface – how our products fit into our users’ lives and how they realise the value we’re creating. Sometimes the best solution isn’t a UI at all.
  • Test your ideas quickly through prototyping, user testing, research, gathering feedback, and breaking down quantitative data. Your focus is making sure we’re building valuable products that our users love.
  • Can wear multiple hats and context switch quickly. You’ll go from managing our design team, to conducting user research, onboarding a new customer or creating messaging for website and sales collateral.
  • You are passionate about how design helps us realise our mission – we aren’t looking to build a ‘better scheduling’ platform but are dead-set on changing the behaviours of customer service teams to provide more fairness and freedom to their agents.
  • You can balance attention to detail with pace – you want to get things right and care a lot about how design influences behaviour, but you also know where to invest your time for biggest impact.
  • You have experience working in a cross-functional product team, e.g. alongside engineers and product managers. Bonus points for previous experience working on data visualisation or scheduling products.

👎 This might not be a good fit if you:

  • Want to focus only on a specific aspect of design such as UX, UI or design systems. We need someone who can wear multiple hats.
  • You haven’t been a product designer before. We are very passionate about developing and nurturing talent but at this stage we need someone who is experienced.
  • You want a role that is mostly managerial. We would love for this role to grow into a Head of Design role, but at this stage we need strong individual contributors who want to ideate and test quickly.

LET’S DO THIS

We respect your time, and aim to keep our interview process as quick and simple as possible. As a fast-moving small company we keep the process flexible, but it typically consists of:

  • Get to know each other – You’ll speak with Natasha and Ellie (CEO and Product Designer) for 45 minutes so we can find out more about your background, approach to product design, and to tell you more about the role and Surfboard.
  • Whiteboard exercise – We’ll get together – preferably in person, but remote is also ok – for 1.5hrs to work through a fictional product design challenge end-to-end.
  • Meet the team – 30-45 min call to get to know a few more of the team. They’ll want to know what it’s like to work with you, and you’ll have opportunity to really dig into what life’s like at Surfboard.
  • Offer! – We’ll get back to you ASAP, and set up a call to go through the details of your offer and answer any final questions you may have.

After each stage we’ll get back to you as quickly as possible with feedback, and there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions. If any questions crop up between rounds, or before applying, just send us an email at ellie@teamsurfboard.com

And—Now are hiring a Junior Designer!

And—Now is a London-based creative agency that works with innovative businesses across the UK and beyond. We specialise in brand identity, visual messaging and ideas-based campaigns, helping our clients to identify their ‘meaningful difference’ and communicate it to maximum effect, through ambitious graphical solutions. We’re looking for a brilliant junior creative as the next addition to our growing team.

Interested?
We are in need of a curious, imaginative designer who is eager to learn and keen to contribute their ideas. This role is a brilliant opportunity to make your mark in a fast-growing team. As a junior you don’t need much, or any, agency experience, but we do want you to show us how you can take an idea from thought to execution in a well-rounded, imaginative portfolio.

As an agency we are proud to be small but perfectly formed, with excellent industry connections and the ability to generate and fulfil imaginative, research-driven ideas. Our mission (soon to be yours) is to fully immerse ourselves in the work of our clients and develop beneficial creative solutions to be truly proud of.

We are happily multi-disciplinary, and require a designer with the enthusiasm to take on anything and everything. You don’t need to be able to turn your hand to every piece of software just yet, but a willingness to learn and grow as a designer is absolutely instrumental for all of our team members (not just the juniors!).

You’ll need:

  • Excellent conceptual and design skills (no surprises there).
  • A passion for research-fuelled design solutions (show us your sketchbooks!).
  • A varied portfolio of work (ideally one or more branding projects) in your portfolio, all with rationale and the evidence of the process behind them. It’s okay if they were done as part of your education, but do try to include some briefs for real life clients if possible.
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team, collaborating from concept to final delivery of a project.
  • Good working knowledge of Adobe CC.
  • Excellent time management, and ability to work within a team ensuring all deadlines are hit.
  • A can-do attitude.

Nice to have:

  • Understanding of HTML and CSS (other code languages a bonus!).
  • Understanding of figma.
  • Understanding of wordpress.
  • Experience with social media.
  • Copywriting skills.

How do we work?

  • Everyone does everything, no one is above or below any project and every input is valid: from intern to director.
  • Accountability is important to us: we take responsibility for our work (even if we make mistakes!).
  • We create and maintain boundaries between work life, home life and clients. That requires you to be 100% present when you’re in the studio.
  • We have a firm emphasis on participation, transparency and discussion.
  • We make sure everyone gets heard.
  • We aren’t precious about ideas, they will be dismantled and made into something even better.
  • We always support and recognise success.
  • We have empathy with colleagues and clients, and focus on cultivating relationships with people.
  • We pledge to always keep learning and embrace the new, taking risks, but not at the expense of deadlines.

Working Routine:
In light of the evolving COVID-19 circumstances, we will be hybrid working for the foreseeable future. This involves two days per week working in the office with the rest of the team, and the remainder working remotely if you’d prefer. It will be possible to work more days from the office if you want.

Virtual vs Face-to-Face Interview?
We will be inviting successful applicants for a virtual interview to begin with. After this, if we want to chat a little bit more we will proceed to arrange a face-to-face interview.

If this sounds like the right fit for you, drop us an email. We’d like a short intro about yourself, why you think you’d be a good fit for the team and a PDF of two or three (maximum!) of your favourite projects. You’ll need to have your full portfolio for the interview. We look forward to meeting you!

Use your creativity to bring 1,000 years of faith, history and tradition to life

Gloucester Cathedral is one of the most significant heritage destinations in the Southwest. An historic place of worship with origins that date back over 1,000 years, we remain open for everyone, 365 days a year. A living, breathing building full of activity, in 2019 we welcomed over 400,000 visitors from all over the world. During the past few years, we have completed the first phase of a once-in-a-generation project to develop the Cathedral for the 21st Century and have ambitious goals to grow, engage and diversify our audiences locally, nationally and internationally.

This is where you come in. Forming a key part of our Development & Communications Team, you’ll collaborate with colleagues to promote the work and mission of the Cathedral through compelling and audience-led creative content design. Although your focus will be on design, no day will be the same as you’ll be producing exciting multichannel materials for a range of campaigns across all aspects of cathedral activity. You’ll also play a key role in enabling the Cathedral’s pattern of daily worship by producing weekly orders of service, rotas and other faith-based resources.

We’re looking for an exceptional designer who enjoys working collaboratively as part of a team and is confident leading the creative process – from concept to final design. You’ll have plenty of experience developing multichannel content for marketing/communications campaigns and onsite visitor information and have a track record for delivering on time within a fast-paced environment. You’ll also have a great eye for detail and be as happy formatting and proof reading as you are being creative.

The Cathedral is about to launch a new marketing strategy, brand identity and website so this is a wonderful opportunity to join a dynamic organisation and have a significant impact at a pivotal moment. Whilst you will be based in the office, there will be opportunities to agree a flexible working pattern which strikes the right balance for you and the Cathedral.
