You’ll help our partner organisations to conceptualise & deliver a range of digital products and then provide guidance and further direction to help evolve them once launched. Our work spans the web, apps and bespoke software but design is always at the forefront and is central across all phases of a project. We’re looking for a well rounded team player, with a real passion for digital. A curiosity for how things work & how they could be improved is essential.

  • Excellent communication skills. You must be able to express your ideas clearly to others in the team and also to clients.
  • Ability to lead/facilitate workshops E.g. Design sprints, Discovery sessions, Innovation workshops
  • An ability to multi-task. We often have multiple projects running at any one time, you’ll be expected to meet multiple deadlines across multiple projects.
  • Strong problem solving skills.
  • A high attention to detail.
  • An enthusiastic social team player that enjoys life. We love the work we do and have built a fun, relaxed environment that encourages team collaboration as well as individual growth. We’re looking for people that will help us build a great culture and continue to make Rareloop a great place to work.
  • A passion to learn and grow

Month 6: As an integral part of the team you’ll lead on all stages of design, helping to shape and refine our processes to add more value to our clients. You’ll also work on internal projects and products and be instrumental in the design of Rareloop’s output across multiple channels.
