London

Our London office is located in Old Street, London’s tech hub, home to a broad range of teams including Commercial, Marketing, and Product. We have large open plan spaces and a feature staircase connecting our 3 floors, encouraging our collaborative and open culture. We also have a big outdoor terrace where we can have lunch and host social events when the sun comes out!

The role

You’ll focus on creating ‘revolutionary’ product descriptions, enhancing our customer journey through our product pages.

Write editorial and technical product descriptions that reflect our brand’s Tone of Voice
