Ready for your next challenge?

We’re looking for a UX/UI designer to join our team.

Currently going from strength to strength, with new clients and growing existing ones, we are looking to welcome a UX/UI designer into our team.

Are you…

  • a designer looking for opportunities to work on new projects?
  • looking to work in an agency that builds products and brands from scratch?
  • happy to work in a small team, organised in pods made of backend, frontend, design and project management?
  • keen to develop a sense of ownership in your projects and to help our clients fulfil their potential?

 

A little bit about us

Founded in 2011, CookiesHQ is a growing software development agency in Bristol, UK. We build fantastic digital products for businesses with passion and potential.

Since 2011 we’ve grown organically by treating our staff and clients with the highest respect and openness. This is how we’ve built a strong customer base who have been growing with us for many years.

Early on, we decided to offer everyone working at CookiesHQ the opportunity to work from any location they choose, as a one-off or on a regular basis, whether it’s the office, home, their favourite coffee shop, different country or tree-house (hey, whatever you’re into).

As a result, we now have a team that is geographically spread but well equipped to collaborate.

We’re very keen on self-development and work-life balance, so you will get dedicated self-improvement time and won’t be asked or expected to work nights or weekends.

How do we work?

We work on projects in ‘pods’, i.e. teams within the team. A pod is usually made of a project manager, a designer, a lead back-end developer and a lead front-end developer. Additional developers join the project if and when needed.

We usually work in sprints and tend not to split time between projects. In other words, most of the time, you will be working on one project at any one time to focus your efforts and avoid the cost of switching from one project to another too often.

We also give our team a great sense of ownership for each project as well as the opportunity to meet the clients, participate in the planning meetings and have a direct channel of communication if and when necessary. This allows you to understand the context of the projects that you work on and make rational decisions based on the business use cases.
