The client

At Zebra People, we’re passionate about matching up the very best talent with exactly what our clients are looking for.

The role

  • Engaging with top UX talent through LinkedIn, our vast network and CV applications

And what can we offer you?

  • Cool offices in Shoreditch, overlooking Hoxton Square – amazing in the Summer!
  • Being part of an amazing, tight-knit herd of friendly and sociable Zebras with a great mix of backgrounds
  • Clear career progression path and an emphasis on training and development
  • Fair and attainable commission scheme
  • The autonomy to work in the way that suits you – we welcome thinking outside of the box here if it gets the job done!
  • Flexible working hours
  • Monthly/quarterly team socials, from cocktail nights and go-karting to festivals and trips away
  • We’re also BIG on values and ethics – something our directors in particular feel very strongly about
