What we can offer you

  • Remote working within the UK - We're a distributed team, so whether you want to join a co-working space or get your work done from home, the choice and flexibility are yours.
  • Work/life balance - We work a 35 hour week and encourage downtime. We don't want people burning out. We offer a full Headspace or Calm subscription and have free mental health support available.
  • The chance to make a big impact - We're a small team of 22 (and growing), and we don't do silos, so there's a big opportunity for you to collaborate closely with people across the whole company and make your mark.
  • Easy-going team - We enjoy spending time with each other. Not being in the office together every day makes the heart grow fonder, so every 3 months or so we organise for the whole team to hang out and catch up. Our recent expeditions have included a Breaking Bad Cocktail Making experience (with virgin options), a food tour across London's East End, and making Christmas wreaths for that festive feeling.
  • Need a holiday? We offer 32 days of holiday per year, which means more time to do something off the beaten path.
  • Growth - We believe it's important for people to have the resources to grow both personally and professionally, so we offer a generous conference and books budget to help you scratch that knowledge itch.


  • Start date: as soon as possible
  • Working remotely anywhere in the UK (we offer budget for co-working spaces or to set-up your home office)
  • Reports to CEO
