Mixd is a digital agency focused on user experience design, working with clients including the NHS, University of Birmingham and North Yorkshire Police. We use user-centred design to untangle complex problems and simplify solutions. We are looking for talented and passionate people who are excited by the challenge of developing digital public services.
Small teams are fast and nimble. Small teams mean less bureaucracy and less management and more getting things done. We also have a “hands-on” attitude which means you’ll speak directly with clients (no Chinese whispers here!).
Mixd started in 2004 and we have a small, friendly and informal team. We deliver only the best work, provide a great place to work and offer a fantastic environment in which to further your career.
Since we are a small team, flexibility and a wide range of skills are important. As is the ability to work really closely with other members of the team, some of which are remote. We invest in our staff and believe in the benefits of a good work-life balance. We have excellent facilities in our office including: free fruit, a great coffee machine and office dog that always wants attention!
We also care about the future of design and in addition to regular guest lectures at local Universities we also run a free 3-day intensive workshop for students who want to work in the web industry called Work in the Web.
For the vast majority of our vacancies, you’re free to work from any location in the UK that makes you happy and truly inspires you. Some choose to work at home from time to time, while others are permanent remote workers.
We’ve had people move both ways: remote people deciding to come in to the office, and people in the office deciding to go remote. The key, for us, is offering both and helping people decide which is best for them. Our offices are in the centre of Leeds, just a short walk from the train station. It’s a fantastic place to work that is easily commutable from Harrogate, Bradford or York.
Whether you choose to work remotely or not, we use tools like Slack, Asana and Float on a day-to-day basis. We also get the whole company together once a year for our “Mixd Adventure”, to brainstorm the broad strategy for the company for the coming months, as well as to hang out and enjoy the company of the people we work with all day.
So what can we offer you in return for bringing your sparkling brilliance to the Mixd team? We’ve designed a great package of benefits for everyone who works here. You’ll join a close knit team, with excellent career progression – you might of noticed we’re expanding!
We’ll set you up with a MacBook Pro and monitor combo plus any software you need. If you enjoy being active, we offer an allowance for gym membership or other fitness activities. We also offer a tax-free Cycle to Work scheme. All of this helps to make Mixd an amazing place to work, but perhaps the most important reason to check us out is that it’s fun! The people are great and while we work hard for our clients, we also have a good time doing it.
