What we can offer you
- Remote working - We're a distributed team, so whether you want to join a co-working space or get your work done from a mountain hut, the choice and flexibility are yours.
- Family friendly - We're very family oriented, so if the little one needs to have their jabs or wants to sit in during a meeting, that's fine too!
- Work/life balance - We work a 35 hour week and encourage downtime. We don't want people burning out. We offer a full Headspace or Calm subscription and have free mental health support available.
- The chance to make a big impact - We're a small team of 20 (and growing), and we don't do silos, so there's a big opportunity for you to collaborate closely with people across the whole company and make your mark.
- Easy-going team - We enjoy spending time with each other. Not being in the office together every day makes the heart grow fonder, so every 3 months or so we organise for the whole team to hang out and catch up. Our recent expeditions have included a Breaking Bad Cocktail Making experience (with virgin options), a food tour across London's east end, and making Christmas wreaths for that festive feeling.
- Need a holiday? We offer 35 days of holiday per year, which means more time to do something off the beaten path
- Growth - We believe it's important for people to have the resources to grow both personally and professionally, so we offer a generous conference and books budget to help you scratch that knowledge itch.
You need to include the word ‘beetroot’ in your cover letter to show that you’ve read the job role (this helps us weed out time wasters!)
