Web Designer for high growth start-up - FT or contract

London Full-time Allows remote

 

PawSquad is a company for people who love pets!

Since 2015 we have launched innovative new ways for pet owners and pets to access trusted UK vets, including video consultations and home visits. Our aim is to remove the costs and inconvenience of traditional vet practice visits wherever possible, and have great, highly qualified vets do what they do best, on their own terms. Our model means pets are seen at home, where they’re most comfortable, and pet owners and their PawSquad vet can develop a relationship and health routine over time – with longer appointment times, and a focus on local providers.

To do this we are assembling a family of great vets, engineers, problem solvers, marketers, and designers and above all, pet lovers.

As we grow, we are looking for amazing people that are as passionate as we are.

We are a well-funded start-up based in central London.



The role

We are looking for a talented and highly motivated Web Designer (and pet lover) to join our London Head Office in Old Street. You will be part of a busy and growing team, working across different areas of the business to support digital and print creative solutions.

 

This is a role for a versatile designer who likes to get involved in all areas of the design process. From campaign implementation to website optimisation, you will work closely with the marketing, product and development team to develop creative solutions that will address our business challenges.

 

Although this is primarily a digital web design role, a good understanding of print design is desired. You will be leading the design direction and output across all channels. You will need to have relevant graphic design and UX experience with a proven portfolio of work.

Communication within this role is essential. We want you to feel part of a growing business, whilst having the confidence to deliver your thoughts and ideas to team members. As a lateral thinker, you will be willing to push the boundaries and challenge current working methods and deliverables.

 

Skills:

  • Good graphic / digital design portfolio
  • Good skills with HTML / CSS
  • Solid experience in creating wireframes, storyboards and user flows.
  • Proficiency in Photoshop, Illustrator or other visual design and wire-framing tools
  • Experience building HTML Emails
  • Up-to-date with the latest Web trends, techniques and technologies
  • Good print design (banners, flyers, business cards, press ads)



Why Work with Us:

  • We are in the early days but have big ambitions. You will grow with us!
  • Lots of learning opportunities and with time, the possibility to lead the design direction of the company
  • We have a great sense of humor and are just very nice people to work with
  • We are building a genuinely useful product that will improve the lives of millions of pets across the world
  • You can take your pet to the office (unless the pet in question is a pony – there is no parking outside)
  • Option to work remotely occasionally can be discussed

Compensation: £28,000 - 32,000 (open to discussing part time options)
