Jobs

We want to bring some quality back to the world. Come and help us do it ...

Waremakers aims to become a globally recognised brand and to help inspire a move away from fast consumerism and towards people buying and using better quality products.

We are looking for talented, experienced, self-motivated and ambitious people who thrive in international environments.

Are you such a person? And are you equally motivated by the thought of combining a very busy, but also very rewarding, work-week in an ambitious start-up with a life in beautiful, sub-tropical Valencia, Spain?

Please note that salaries in Spain are significantly lower than in, say, Northern Europe or the US, but living expenses are equally low compared to those same countries.

You need to be a citizen of the EU, or hold a EU working permit, to be considered.

Web UX lead

Junior Digital Designer

 


 

Web UX Lead


Come and help us build the best e-commerce site on the web.

In April 2017 we launched our brand new website, but this is only the beginning.

We want to design and build the best shopping and reading experience on the web — and we need the help of a versatile web UX expert with solid tech knowledge.

LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS

Fluent English speaker.
An ability to speak Spanish would be a plus, but is not required.

THE ROLE

As our UX lead, you will essentially also be our web lead. We work with a small team of very skilled developers in Ukraine but need a local lead to project manage:

  • The developers in Ukraine (using Trello for project management)
  • Our UX design, tweaks and tests 
  • Bug hunting 
  • A/B testing

You will also play a key role in determining the tactics for our website, managing our SEO and most other aspects of running and improving our web platform, including sometimes building landing pages, optimizing the site and managing integrations with web tools from Google, Facebook, helpdesk services etc. 

You will be working with most of the team and directly with one of the founders that previously handled our web builds.

Our site is built in PHP with the Laravel framework.

YOU

You are a very digitally minded person — but you are not necessarily a developer.

Our developers in Ukraine take care of the actual coding, so your primary responsibility is to project manage and test their work while constantly looking for new ways to improve our platform, frontend as well as backend.

  • You have significant experience with UX design, and preferably also UI design. 
  • You know a fair bit of HTML and CSS, possibly also a bit of PHP, but it is not required.
  • Experience from developing UX and UI on e-commerce sites will be a big plus. 
  • You know your way around Google Analytics and possibly also KissMetrics.
  • You know how to project manage and communicate to developers in a way they can understand.

You know that lots of small changes can have big effects. How to develop new UX and UI ideas, send them off to the developers, test their work and measure and assess the results. The aim always to optimize both the experience with, and the results of, using our web platform on waremakers.com.

And you truly know how websites work. What they can do and how they do it. What you can plug them into. Why you would do that. Or why you wouldn't.

WE OFFER

You will become part of an international team consisting of 10-12 people and be part of a well-funded start-up with big ambitions.

We offer a competitive salary relative to the salary level in Spain.

We offer practical relocation assistance if you are coming from abroad.

WHAT NOW?

Simply send us your CV (in English) along with a cover letter about yourself and examples of relevant work.

DEADLINE

There is no deadline for applying. We will continuously be reviewing applications and conducting interviews until we have found the right person.

STARTING DATE

May 2017, or as soon as possible after this date.

Junior Digital Designer


We need the help of a gifted and experienced Junior Digital Designer to complete our marketing team.

Please ensure you read the full job description prior to submitting your application.  Relevant and demonstrable experience is essential.

LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS

Fluent English speaker.
An ability to speak Spanish would be an advantage, but is not essential.

THE ROLE

The Digital Designer will work with the marketing and content teams to aid in the production and management of all visual content for Waremakers.  This will include all visual content on our website, as well as our online marketing initiatives.

It is essential that you have demonstrable design and photo editing experience, so that you’re able to hit the ground running.

Primary role responsibilities will include:

  • Editing & resizing of all product images to ensure they are website-ready
  • Image quality control – ensuring all imagery matches our brand style & requirements
  • Design of headers, banners and key tile imagery to promote our collections and articles
  • Design and editing of all image content for use on social media and other online media

YOU

We are a start-up, so we need driven and super versatile people. You need to be organised and work effectively and efficiently with a conscientious and can-do attitude. You are highly self-motivated and pro-active.

You take a design brief as a starting point — you can follow tight briefs to the letter, but you can also interpret loose briefs with creativity and brand sensitivity.

You feel comfortable managing a large workflow to time and quality requirements. As an e-commerce business, we manage a large quantity of image content. We launch multiple producers on our site each month. Some of our larger producers have 100+ products, with each product having 5+ context and product images which require editing. With such a large amount of inbound imagery that needs making web-ready, your time and task management skills are key.

You have strong experience in the following:

  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Adobe InDesign
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • Photo editing: Model & product shots, both in studio and ‘wild’
  • Still image design: Turning tight or loose briefs in to marketing and promotional materials to run across multiple platforms – Facebook, website, Instagram, blogs and more

If you have experience in the following, we would be very happy:

  • Full Adobe Creative Suite
  • Video & Animation software
  • CMS for e-commerce websites
  • Design for social platforms:  Knowledge of Facebook design dimensions and limitations, including text limits, Canvas and more.

It is also important to us that you share our ethos: We truly care about humans making things to the highest standards and we wish to encourage people to buy better quality products. We are convinced that you can only truly excel in your work if you genuinely believe in what you are doing.

WE OFFER

We recently partnered with one of Europe's biggest companies in our sector and are setting out on a mission with all the buzz and energy that this entails. You will become part of an international team consisting of 10-12 people and be part of the project almost from the start.

We offer practical relocation assistance if you are coming from abroad.

WHAT NOW?

Simply send us your CV (in English) along with a cover letter about yourself and examples of recent and relevant work.

DEADLINE

There is no deadline for applying. We will continuously be reviewing applications and conducting interviews until we have found the right person.

Unfortunately, we are unable to respond to all applications. If you have not heard from us within two weeks of sending your application, your application was unsuccessful. 

STARTING DATE

May 2017, or as soon as possible after this date.
