Senior Developer

THE AGENCY

Founded in the 60s and a member of one of the world’s largest marketing groups, this Global Brand Consultancy was listed as one of the The Sunday Times Best Companies to work for. In their own words, their work helps clients capitalise on moments of change in business and society by framing new opportunities and inventing new experiences. They do this by developing unique brand experiences, products that drive demand, and creatively-led business strategies. With clients that are leaders in all categories including technology, culture, media, retail, industry, and non-profit organisations.

You will be encouraged to demonstrate what can best be described as your ‘magical’ qualities – the ability to shift the hearts and mindsets of colleagues and clients to new heights and create unique, special and sustainable brand experiences. The culture is one of high expectation, where total collaboration is a given but individual inventiveness is critical. Here exceptional results are less an exception and more the norm.

To do this, they have 180 people across four offices, in three main skill groups: strategists, designers and account managers. With these main hubs in London, New York, San Francisco & Dubai.

The London office is a converted warehouse by the canal in Kings Cross, London. With a fantastic in-house restaurant and kitchen which provides free breakfasts and subsidised lunches. Aiming to encourage a healthy lifestyle, it doesn’t stop there, they hold free weekly yoga, martial arts and pilates classes. On top of that there are a series of seminars and sessions from in-house and outside talkers as part of the norm.

Expect to be looked after.
