We’re hiring: Junior Designer

UPDATE: This position has been filled

We’re looking for a junior to mid-weight designer, a creative geek type obsessed with the coming web and fiendish about making new things. This could be your first job or you could have a bit of experience behind you – either way, your attitude is more important than your work history.

We want someone brave, bold, talented and ready to roll with the punches. We’re *not* interested in people who want to design banner ads and out-of-the-box microsites. If you want to punch the clock and fade into the background, this job isn’t for you.

We’re looking for a designer who’s excited to be involved at any and every stage of the project, from workshops and idea creation to prototyping and high-fidelity designs. Designing at Made by Many means thinking, talking, collaborating and learning. Whilst some of your time will be spent behind a computer using Photoshop and Illustrator, a lot of it will be spent with pen and paper in hand, visualising your ideas and the services we make.

It’s hard to call the paywall a failure when charging for something that others give away free resembles nothing so much as suicide. So how close to death is thetimes.co.uk?
